From the morning when you will enjoy our fresh homemade pancakes after an energizing early morning session, to the social evening dinners after a rooftop sunset session, this is a holiday like no other!
We want to encourage you to practice yoga and get a feel for it, in a relaxing and fun surrounding. You’ll also have time to explore the sandy beaches, try out some other exciting activities, local restaurants, and why not, go out for a few drinks.
This is not your typical yoga retreat. At Bura, it’s all about enjoying yourself in a chilled and fun environment, whether you already are a devoted yogi or are trying it for the first time.
As long as you’re keen to get your yoga on whilst enjoying the good life that holidays are meant for, you’ll fit right in!

- Option to add on surfing, hiking, stand up paddle boarding as well as other activities

We are located in the beautiful town of Lagos in the Portuguese Algarve. This is a small, historic town on the south coast, surrounded by beaches, cliffs and grottos which offers a wide variety of activities and also has a lively nightlife.
We still consider Lagos one of Europe’s best kept secrets!
Fly to Faro airport, and we can arrange shared airport transfers for you (€30 return - they take around 2 hours) or a private transfer. You can also fly to Lisbon or Seville and catch the bus to Lagos.
Yoga sessions are held in the morning and evenings on our rooftop terrace. Prepare for epic sunsets!
Our wonderful yoga instructor would help you ease into poses if you are a first timer whilst offering an intermediate option for those more experienced - any level of yoga is welcome. We’ll be aiming to increase your flexibility and strength over the stay, with awakening morning sessions and restorative, softer classes in the evening. A longer mediation session is typical in the evening, so you’ll be rested and ready to treat yourself to a post-yoga glass of wine - it is a holiday after all!
The package includes a delicious daily breakfast - with freshly made banana/plain pancakes, fruit, breads and cereals with juices, coffee and tea.
We are on the same road as a large supermarket (just a 3 minute walk away) for grabbing bits for lunch and snacks, and we offer evening meals prepared by our in-house chef. Our food is based around healthy but filling local produce with plenty of veggie options, and we've thrown in a free welcome BBQ for everyone too!
*Please let us know in advance of any dietary requirements so we can cater for your needs.
Our Surfhouse is a family style villa complete with pool, rooftop terrace, and poolside bar. We are located just outside the town centre so you can chill and feel at home, but still within easy walking distance from the beaches and the nightlife. Your stay includes accommodation in a dorm, but private twin rooms are available for a surcharge.
The Surfhouse has an open-plan layout with tons of natural light, a spacious and fully equipped kitchen with multiple fridges, plenty of outdoor seating, deck chairs for tanning by the pool, hammocks for lazy days, and a balcony perfect for munching pancakes in the morning sun.
Travelling alone? No big deal, you can easily meet like-minded bad yogis during class, by joining us for our family dinners prepared by our chef each evening, or by grabbing a drink at our poolside bar from only €1.
We can organise surf lessons, surf trips, stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, wake-boarding, wine-tasting to our local vineyard, and a whole range of other activities through our reception. Our staff are on hand 24 hours to help with whatever you need.
Relax and unwind with a 30 minute massage.
Comfortable/loose trousers for yoga
Swimwear for hanging by the pool or at the beach
Light layers for the evenings

"Bura Bootcamp is not your standard "bootcamp". We were in line for something different...and far more exciting! Bura Surfhouse was really the icing on the cake :) The staff (and I use “staff” in the loosest possible terms) are awesome, friendly, and extremely helpful. It becomes a lifestyle you won’t want to leave behind.... sigh."
"Bura is the best place I have ever stayed! In over 30 countries I have never felt so at home. Family is an understatement... I felt closer to the Bura family than I do my own... Do yourself a favor and stay here, even if its just for the people! I love it and will, for sure be back!"
