I travelled alone and spent 10 days here on the detox package. Firstly I must say the location is beautiful - isolated and rural yet easy enough to reach civilisation (if you want to). The rooms are great, spacious with all you need. If you'd like a bigger room but be away from the main house I'd recommend staying at...

Our visit to the Villa was a very good experience. Eight days of peace and quiet for the mind and the body. They run the place in a very different way and their love and care for their guests shines trough in both the details and the big picture. I love the monkeys, the birds, the lizards the sounds,the meditation,...

This was definitely the best vacation, we have had ever. Usually we need a holiday after a vacation, but after our 2-week stay at Plantation Villa, our batteries were fully charged. We had chosen the weight loss package, but a no time did we feel exhausted or had cravings for more food. And we DID loose weight ☺ We cannot...

There is a real warmth in which you are greeted, from smiling faces of management to a floral arrangement on your bed, spelling out your welcome. From there, depending on your time of arrival, you are taken to the doctor to diagnose your dosha. Then you're off to the spa for your first treatment. A couple of things here: first,...

I had an ok stay. There is a few things that needs improvement. First of all, let me say the food was delicious, treatments were also good, rooms confortable and the doctor very knowledgeable. I arrived right when there was a transition for yoga teachers and it took a few days to get adjusted. Some of the staff should be...

My five day stay felt like a two week getaway. It was exactly how I envisioned Ayurveda retreat would be without ever experiencing it before. The quality of food, treatments, service, Dr. Nishin, yoga and holistic instructors Raquel and Gary were exceptional. I am planning to return in July, loved every moment of it.

Nice welcome once I reached though they had forgotten to send me a driver to pick me up at the airport. To compensate they have upgraded me in the suite (I had paid for the simple room only). Amazing place in the middle of the forest, you will hear all birds all day long and forget all your routine for...

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
