Sleeps up to 18 guests.
On the shores of the Victoria Lake and by the foothills of the Knuckles Mountains, its setting is remote, wild and peaceful, yet accessible and still much in touch with the Sri Lankan community that gives the hill country its soul. This property is an idyllic sanctuary providing all you need to escape and explore, to relax and rejuvenate, and to enjoy a healthy, active and balanced way of life.
Built along an exposed rock-face, the main house offers four bedrooms with private balconies, a dining room with a central communal dining table, a reading room with views across the lake, a juice bar and an outdoor-indoor living space with more private dining and seating areas. Two more bedrooms sit in a separate guest-house at the far end of the property. And a further pair of large rooms offer group accommodation – laid out for those happy to share their space in mind. All rooms have large private bathrooms and views through and over the tree canopy toward Victoria Lake and the surrounding jungle inspired gardens.
This Villa is divided in three main blocks.
THE MAIN HOUSE
THE GARDEN COTTAGE
THE LAKE HOUSE
This Villa is the perfect place to escape the pressures of daily life, to immerse in local culture and to discover new passions. Some activities available at the property or nearby are:
This Villa has a dedicated Yoga Shala and organises private Yoga retreats which also include special vegan and vegetarian menus. Therefore it is particularly recommended for those who are looking for a special detox, yoga and meditation retreat in Sri Lanka.
The Yoga Shala is set away from the main house, amongst lush jungle gardens and alongside a natural rock face. The owners have used wooden floors and ceilings and kept the space as open as possible to offer views of the lake, and let soft jungle sounds drift in. For an intimate or candlelit practice, students and instructors can drop the bamboo blinds to create a more enclosed and private Shala space.
The Shala is spacious, yet intimate, comfortably accommodating up to 20 students for group-led retreats, but also suitable for those happy to practice independently or in one-to-one sessions with an instructor.
This Villa has been conceived as a place for restoration and rejuvenation, so food and drinks are very important for the hosts. The Villa prepares simple and healthy dishes, prepared with local produce and with Sri Lankan cooking influence. Try fresh-water crayfish curries (the crayfish caught only a few hundred yards away) or mango and avocado salads picked straight from their organic vegetable garden.
King Coconut water or an exotic fruit juice from our made-to-order juice bar.
