sri lanka RETREAT OVERVIEW

Give your guests an experience of a lifetime hosting your yoga retreat at this wonderfully refurbished old house on the shores of Victoria Lake in the Central province of Sri Lanka. A Yoga Retreat Venue conceived from a passion and enthusiasm for this very beautiful, natural and still pretty unknown part of the Sri Lankan hills that has become an ideal sanctuary for those wanting to switch off and reconnect with nature.

Away from everything in the abundance of nature but wonderfully close to lesser-known temples, lush green tea estates, the untouched mountains of The Knuckles and secluded villages that dot the shores of the Victoria Lake. A beautiful Sri Lankan experience with lots to offer you and your group such as hikes to the caves of the Bambaragala Temple and plunges under waterfalls on tea estates in the foothills of the Knuckles.

Our venue will introduce you to a very honest and open side of Sri Lanka away from the hustle and bustle of city life, and will provide your guests with plenty of space to relax and unwind in its beautiful balconies, decks and spacious interiors.

With a varied option of vegetarian, vegan and gluten free meals our chef will provide a delicious & cleansing plant-based menu from fresh, local, seasonal and healthy ingredients giving the perfect nourishment for your guests to bring out their best selves.

YOGA-RETREAT-VENUE-SRI-LANKA-EXPERIENCE-RETREATS-Garden Cottage sitting room.jpg

Our Yoga Retreat venue is located sitting snugly on the edge of Victoria Lake, close to the village of Digana and at just 45 minutes from Kandy. The later is a major city in Sri Lanka located in the Central Province where the Temple of the Tooth Relic, a UNESCO world heritage site is located.

Out of a crumbly, empty old house a very bright and spacious Yoga Retreat Villa has been created with the help of local craftsmanship and noble materials to offer an ideal sanctuary for those wanting to host a fabulous retreat in a place of total calmness fully immersed in nature. There are plenty of open, communal spaces, a beautiful teak wood Yoga Shala, a swimming pool overlooking treetops and gorgeously designed twin/shared high ceiling rooms to accommodate your guests in full comfort.

This is a truly peaceful getaway where guests can connect with themselves and nature.
