About This Event

Step away from the hectic pace of daily life, to rest and recharge in nature. Tucked away out of the hustle and bustle near the south coast of Sri Lanka, this nurturing experience will support you in finding your return to balance.

Sleep peacefully in our earth-friendly, rustic yet beautiful eco-lodge, complete with onsite Ayurveda wellness centre. Indulge in daily yoga and supportive practices, and nourish with deliciously fresh and wholesome food. Explore the local area by foot and bike, or venture further afield by tuk tuk – or maybe just laze by our sparkling pool. The choice is your to do as little or as much as you like to create the perfect recharge, in the most perfect natural surrounds.

If you’re looking for cafes, restaurants, shops and holiday busyness… this is not it. But if you want to peel back on distractions and take the chance to really unplug and recharge – welcome to paradise!
