WORLD RETREAT - Sri Lanka
Time & Location
About the Event
This amazing retreat is located on a coconut farm which has been reovated beautifully just over 10 years ago and has been developed into a 'diverse 50 acre organic fruits and spice farm' for the benefit of our guests and the local community. Most of the fruits, spices and vegetables you will enjoy are grown on the Farm.
Centrally located, midway between Dambulla and Kandy, within the Cultural Triangle, during your chillout yoga holiday you can either relax on the farm, at our poolside or in our spa or enjoy memorable day trips to nature parks, ancient temples or fabulous heritage sites, like Sigiriya. Set amongst wooded hills and next to paddy-fields, the farm is a haven for birds - 102 species have been spotted so far!
Pure luxury, Sri Lankan style.....All our stylishly decorated bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with solar hot water, individually controlled air-con, fan, and free Wifi.Thirteen double/family bedrooms are located on upper floors, with your own private balcony, and there is a single bedroom at ground floor level for single guests or those with limited mobility. Either way you will enjoy the tranquillity of our 50-acre organic farm, only 3 kms from the main Dambulla to Kandy road, and learn more about life in a Sri Lankan village, with its seasons and traditions. You can even learn how to cook a delicious Sri Lankan rice and curry!
The beautiful and traditional accommodation and grounds are vast, allowing you space between activities and room to wander and reflect.. It has a singular ambience; a sense of calm and quiet beauty that encourages study, self-development and contemplation.........
