Plantation Villa is an award winning wellness hotel set amidst nature. We specialise in Ayurveda, Yoga, Meditation and organic food to ensure a complete holistic wellness experience. Ideal place to detox and rejuvenate!

The space

The hotel property itself is a 30 acre plantation of Rubber, Coconut, Cinnamon and Black Pepper. The villa is surrounded by nature and is a habitat for rare local and migrant birds, butterflies and a plethora of tropical flora and fauna. We have an outdoor space where yoga and meditation classes are conducted in the morning under the trees and at night lit up by oil lamps. We specialize in Ayurveda which is an ancient art of healing the body and mind through nutrition, relaxation and herbal treatments.

Our Ayurvedic doctors and senior therapists have over 15 years experience. We work with qualified coaches, healers, meditation masters, clinical psychologists, yoga instructors and teacher trainers from around the world; tailoring retreats to fill a much needed gap in the world of wellness and offering visitors a truly holistic opportunity to completely recoup and rejuvenate. Body, Mind and Spirit.

We follow a 'farm to plate' policy where the majority of food served to you comes from our own organic gardens. The hotel gardens consist of a paddy field as well as an organic vegetable / fruit spice and herb garden. Guests are invited to join in the paddy harvesting and fruit / vegetable and spice picking during their stay. With cookery demonstrations offered to those guests who are interested.

As a Sri Lankan Wellness Retreat set in a rural community, we offer a different experience to the standard tourist hotels and resorts. It offers a sense of loving kindness to those who want to escape the daily rat race of life, to help reconnect with themselves and focus on their inner happiness. A place where life in nature, fresh air, nutrition and herbal medicines combined with mindfulness techniques of yoga and meditation with personalised service offer a haven for guests to relax in and focus on their well-being. The hotel enjoys fabulous guest reviews and is focused on offering a personalised service to all who stay with us. As an Eco-friendly hotel we work tirelessly for the sustainment of our environment and the village people. The hotel employs local staff and funds numerous village community establishments such as the village temples and schools.

House Rules

1. We do not allow smoking inside the house or in the inner garden. We prefer if you didn't smoke, but if you have to, then please wander over to our outer garden so you don't disturb our other guests
2. Please also behave in a way that is kind and understanding towards our other guests who are also there to relax and unwind
3. Please be kind to our staff. They are very genuine village people who do really care about the hotel and the guests who come to stay with us. They are innocent people and used to a calm Buddhist way of life. They are not used to being shouted at or mistreated which sometimes happens by some of our western guests.

Ayurveda Retreat-Plantation Villa, Kalutara, is a remarkable natural oasis with astonishing flora and fauna, offering both accommodation and natural foods and drinks mostly based on the Plantation produce, and if needed (which I strongly recommend) a personalised program of treatments suggested by an ayurvedic doctor that sees you and listens to you on your arrival day and progressively checks the results of treatments on you. I was immediately impressed by the cleanliness of my room and the surrounding environment, the perfect organization of the schedules (I also very much enjoyed Pryiantha's early morning yoga lessons, and a short swimming before breakfast and the relaxing and very pleasant intensive massages and other special treatments carried out by Roshan, who is in charge of the place when Ishara, the young but very skillful manageress and owner of the Plantation, is not on the spot though constantly in touch via email or phone and ready to mediate in case of problems or give advice to meet any needs. I had one with Roshan due to a linguistic misunderstanding that was quickly settled. The atmosphere is peaceful and all the staff, including three women coordinated by the gentle Lalitha, are caring and constantly ready to please you and make you feel comfortable in any possible way. Another astonishing thing is that you get meals not at set times but when YOU feel hungry! Where else can you get that? I do believe the Plantations and its facilities are worth a journey to Sri Lanka, that is why I strongly recommend it to all my friends and anybody loving a close contact with unpolluted nature and oneself. If you are interested in enjoying excursions the House can help and when wanted you are also provided with a modern A/C car and driver, of course with extra charges, the same happens if you need transport from and to Colombo airport, which, and I appreciated that, is never an obbligation. You feel totally free to make your own choices. I think I'll repeat this experience again and again, whenever I can afford.

Accueil chaleureux de l'ensemble de l'équipe sur place. Chambre claire et spacieuse disposant de tout le confort. La plantation est située dans un cadre verdoyant, au calme et sans aucune gène en périphérie. Les jardins sont magnifiques et entretenus en permanence. Les soins ayurvédiques sont prodigués par un thérapeuthe compétent et généreux. Les repas sont succulents et préparés avec des produits frais provenant pour la plupart de la plantation. Nous avons eu toutes les réponses à nos questions quant à la manière de préparer les repas et les règles à appliquer. Les personnes en charge de réaliser les repas sont ouvertes à diffuser leur savoir-faire et leurs petits secrets. Ce sèjour a été pour nous une expérience humaine passionnante. Nous la renouvelleront volontiers dans les mêmes conditions.
