Food: what’s included? Daily breakfast, three group dinners, and one lunch while on a excursion.What type of food is it? Fresh- they even do farm to table cooking classes. Vegetarian and vegan options available. Some villas have kitchenettes for you do some of your own cooking or experience the culture by going out to dine at local restaurants.
Accommodations? Generally these are higher end yoga and surfing retreats accommodations. Some are described as boutique hotels and some are called villas- they all sound very nice to me. This company chooses hotels that are right on the beach and mostly have a private area.

Via Yoga Retreats Review: All the reviews on this company are stellar! Guests feel pampered and special. The organization of these retreats are smooth and flawless. Group dynamics are warm and friendly. They really have nailed the balance between organized activity and free time. No one felt too structured into a hectic schedule, yet no one complained about boredom. It seems Via Yoga over delivers on their retreats and that's why they're doing so well!
