We usually go to a detox spa in Thailand every Christmas and this year decided to try something different. What a perfect choice Villa de Zoysa was! We spent 14 wonderful, relaxing days at Devinda's "White House" and were very impressed with everything, most especially Devinda himself, who was so helpful and kind. He and his staff went out of...

You wont find such a generous host or homely atmosphere anywhere else we are sure. Devinda went out of his way to see all his guests had their special needs and itineraries catered for. The food was delicious, the staff charming and although we were not too experienced yoga specialists the instructor, Luke, went out of his way to help...

Our stay at Villa de Zoysa was such a treat! I travelled there with my sister and I have only good words. The place is gorgeous, a tastefully and cosy villa decorated in Devinda's particular take on Sri Lankan style, every detail is special and unique. The food is just delicious, every day. Yoga with Domingo was an enriching experience...

I rarely leave reviews but was so disappointed with my stay here. Most notably having come for the yoga we had a terrible yoga teacher, I'm not fussy she was just appalling, on phone, no instructions etc. Devinda tried to find a replacement to no avail. A few other things also disappointing. No ceiling fans made the room unbearably hot,...

I have been to this place several times and every time it's such a delight. The house itself is a beautiful example of Victorian architecture with high ceilings, an impressing dining-room (well, you could call it a hall) and creaky wooden stairs. Devinda is the perfect host and the food makes you speechless. Do I need to say more? Stay...

We stayed for 6 nights in one of the new rooms. This place has a great relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, the yoga with Fernando was an amazing intro to the practice for us but the yoga also catered for much more advanced levels. The food was absolutely delicious Sri Lankan fare, healthy vegetables fish and prawns for dinner, there is...

Devinda is a great host! We had the best time during our two week stay and are already planning our next trip. The food was excellent; the staff was lovely; the house, dogs, and even the passing trains were very charming. We made many friends during our time there.

A fascinating, welcoming and hearty place to start your Sri Lanka experience. We went on a three week trip to Sri Lanka for our honeymoon and we booked to stay at Devinda’s for the first four nights. We were recommended this place by a friend and what a recommendation it was. We were there in rainy season and oh boy...
