Plantation Villa is a beautiful Sanctuary of Nurture, Love and Tranquillity. This flows from the wonderful staff team, the Ayurvedic treatments, the Yoga classes and the beautiful Nature. I left feeling nourished,...

I spent 5 days and 4 nights at Plantation villa on the Yoga package. The whole experience was beautiful and just what I needed. You are truly in the jungle, surrounded by nature, feeling connected by the soundscape of birds and monkeys. (do bring a strong mosquito repellent though ;)) The staff were welcoming and friendly from the moment of...

There's so much to say about this retreat centre! I had my doubts at first because it wasn't my first choice for a break but I thought "well, you don't know until you try". On arrival the staff were fantastic. They had stayed up late to make sure I had dinner and something to drink, and even though I was...

The Plantation Villa is set in a beautiful location amongst the rainforest. The staff are so friendly and make you feel like your part of their home. The doctors and therapists are fantastic, food is good and lots of information and trips available nearby. It was completely relaxing and healing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and it was not long enough! The staff were friendly and supportive, from kitchen staff through to the managers and the guestroom cleaners, all were so kind and helpful. Smiles all round. The food whilst not for everyone, suited me just fine. It was fresh and wholesome. Thank you for the challenging yoga classes...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A 100 year old property owned by the then chief of the village and 'govi raja' - Paddy King, an honour bestowed by the government. This property has now been expanded upon to create a nature health resort. The hotel is a specialist Ayurveda / Yoga retreat with 8 rooms set amidst a 30 acre plantation of Rubber, Coconut, Cinnamon, Black Pepper and numerous vegetation, fruit trees and paddy fields. The guest experiences are personalised - each guest will be met by an Ayurvedic Doctor on the first day of their arrival who will plan their diet and ayurveda treatment plans which will be administered during their stay. Majority of the food served to guests come from our own organic gardens surrounding the hotel and daily yoga classes will be conducted to compliment their therapies. Treatments range from general relaxation / destress or detox to the cure or prevention of paralysis, cancer, piles etc. Whilst most guests come for just a relaxing experience or to loose weight or detox, we have had some guests with serious illnesses. Additionally, cookery classes, meditation classes and day trips are organised to allow guests to experience life in rural Sri Lanka. ... more   less
