Surf shanti is a stunning newly built Lodge that provides a peaceful sanctuary from the noise and disturbances of the hectic modern world and offers a retreat location in the truest sense of the word. Barefoot luxury at its best. The pure nature and breath taking views makes Surf Shanti the perfect location to organise yoga retreats, active escapes and events. It’s the ideal place to escape the daily busy and demanding life. The minimalistic, charming Lodge and the natural lifestyle under a sky full of stars stimulates the inner peace.
Surf Shanti consists of two houses with 3 bedrooms all with their own privacy and 3 mezzanines. It comes with an outdoor yoga deck and an indoor yoga studio which both offer space for approximately 14 people. The indoor area has a wooden floor with underfloor heating for the colder winter months. It comes with a modern and minimalistic design, including high wooden ceilings. The yoga deck and the large indoor yoga studio have both amazing views and offer privacy in a secluded and quiet environment. Surf Shanti has a luxury fully equipped kitchen where nourishing and nutritious meals can be prepared and shared.
Sustainability and ethos
We favour an eco-friendly and sustainable way of life. We value and respect the Costa Vicentina´s natural park wildlife and beauty. The food for the retreats can be bought from the local markets and organic farms nearby. There is also a health food store in Aljezur that we love. We provide drinking water to limit the consumption of plastic bottles. We also encourage minimum electricity consumption. The owner chose to not have air conditioning nor television to keep in line with this ethos. The light breeze provides plenty of cooler temperature in the evenings and we also have fans.
Portugal is a big producer of cork and the whole property has beautiful cork trees. Our cork yoga blocks are hand made in Portugal, eco friendly and made to last forever. We love to be as close to nature as possible and we strive to use ecological and natural products as much as we can.
We are very grateful and proud of our collaboration with eco yoga mats. At the heart of ecoYoga rests the belief that yoga and ecology are inextricably linked: both holding the potential to deepen our awareness and sensitivity.

Yoga to the body & inner self and ecology to our natural environment. Surf Shanti and Eco Yoga mats have the same ethos and this makes it a perfect match. www.ecoyoga.co.uk
