Retreat: Sri Lanka Yoga Retreat - March 14th to 21st, 2020

Retreat: Sri Lanka Yoga Retreat - March 14th to 21st, 2020

In conjunction with Blue Rise Retreats

LOCATION

Located near a sea turtle hatchery, which we will visit during the retreat, the property is right on the sea front with a reef protected beach outside that offers a fascinating world for those wishing to explore the rock pools for tropical fish, crabs and shells. A short stroll to the left takes you to a protected swimming lagoon and a five-minute tuk-tuk ride in the other direction finds you at the main Thalpe Beach.

For those wanting to explore, there is plenty to discover. You can hire a bike and cycle through the local paddy fields and rainforest, visiting temples and tea plantations along the way. There are boat trips on nearby Koggala Lake where you can visit small islands and secret coves. And the UNESCO World Heritage site of Galle Fort is only a twenty minutes tuk- tuk ride away. Losing yourself in the Fort’s labyrinth of old streets is a wonderful way to spend a day.

For the more adventurous, there is whale watching, surfing and scuba diving all in close proximity. Here is a link to the directions

ACCOMMODATION

Our lovingly restored beach house has six bedrooms, extended living areas, a large pool, five wonderful staff to attend to your every need and the beach at the end of the garden.

Furnished throughout with a blend of antiques and modern art and furniture sourced from across Asia, the house is designed to offer stylish yet relaxed beach living.

The property consists of 2 main wings. The first has 3 double bedrooms and a twin bedroom, all with spacious en-suite bathrooms, elegant four-poster beds and either pool or panoramic ocean views. In the second wing there is a further double bedroom, a bedroom with two double bunk beds, and a large shared bathroom featuring a freestanding bath.

All bedrooms have A/C and overhead fans. There is wifi throughout the house.

The downstairs living area opens on to the tropical garden to make the most of the spectacular ocean views and warm Sri Lankan climate, while the expansive upstairs sitting and games area is the perfect place to retreat and watch a movie, play cards or immerse yourself in a great book.
