The Lodge

Welcome to the Pura Vida Lodge


The spacious rooms of the Pura Vida Lodge are available for two to six people. Some rooms have their own balcony with hammock. The sturdy beds with comfortable matrasses will give you the sleep you need after a day of surfing. Hygiene is highly important to us, so we clean the shared bathrooms and toilets daily.

Lounge garden

The lodge is surrounded by a huge common garden area with (heated) eco swimming pool facing south. This means constant sun! If you are looking for shade you will find more than enough sheltered spots. The garden is equipped with bean bags and hammocks to relax in. The outside solar shower is perfect to rinse off after a surf session. At night we light the campfire, where you can enjoy a cold drink and talk about your day with the other guests. We limit the number of guests to ensure a relaxed vibe in the lodge.


Every morning you will wake up with a delicious and healthy breakfast buffet in the sunny garden. The products that we use are fresh and every day we surprise you with a special (so we are not telling you about it yet!). Besides freshly brewed coffee and tea we provide juices and home made bread with lots of topping to choose from, like home made peanut butter and chocolate paste. Also yoghurt, cereals and fruits are part of the daily breakfast menu. A good start of the day and enough energy for a surf session.


The lodge chef prepares a daily differing menu for all our guests. The dinner is a surprising mix of both traditional and international dishes. If you wish you may use our luxurious gas barbecue. If you have specific dietary needs or allergies, please indicate this in your booking so we can take this into account.


Still got energy after your surf session? Play darts, table tennis or jeu de boules. Or train your balance using the Indo boards or slacklines. We also provide skateboards (longboards and carver boards) that you can use for a tour around the area. But don’t forget to relax as well! Grab a cold drink and settle yourself into a bean bag or hammock by the pool. Everywhere in the lodge you have access to free WiFi.

Your hosts

We are Sven and Elles, nice to meet you! Being very passionate about and loving the surf sport and the environment, we started the Pura Vida Lodge several years ago. Together with our team and our children, daughter Flo and son Yuki, we are the heart of the Lodge. With all of us we are working hard but happy every day to make sure that our guests will have a pleasant and unforgettable holiday here in Mimizan.
