There are two places to stay on the plantation: the Lodge and the Villa. The Lodge was the original property and is thought to be around 150 years old and was once owned by the local village chief, whilst the Villa was built later by the chief’s son to accommodate more guests.
The buildings are about two minutes’ walk from each other and both feature spacious communal areas as well as six bedrooms in the Lodge and eight bedrooms in the Villa, consisting of two twins, four doubles and two suites.
All bedrooms are en-suite and include verandas, traditional wooden furniture and ceiling fans, with air-con available in Villa accommodation and baths added to suites.
Although this is a Sri Lanka Ayurveda retreat that doesn’t mean you can’t just rest and have fun with a swimming pool and children’s playground inviting families to come and relax alongside the yogis.
Ayurvedic treatments, detoxification, weight loss and nutritional programmes give you just a taste of things to come with spa facilities and expert tuition allowing guests to focus their minds and their bodies in sublime tropical surroundings.
Games of badminton and volleyball on the lawn followed by nature trails and visits to the local village or organised trips to explore the rest of Sri Lanka; Ayurveda retreat this maybe, taking itself too piously, it certainly does not.
The plantation is situated next to the village of Nehinna around 80kms south of Sri Lanka’s capital city, Colombo.
If you’re flying into Colombo and hiring a car, take the Galle Express Way and follow signs to Matugama whereupon you’ll need to take a left at the small junction next to the statue of Buddha before following the main street for around 4kms as you follow signs to the Plantation Villa.
Alternatively, air and rail transfers are available on request and more detailed driving instructions will be passed on during the booking process.
