Lotus Villa

Where you are going...
Lotus Villa is situated on the white, sandy Ahungulla beach, where you can enjoy a ten kilometre-walk. The resort itself, surrounded by palm trees and a lovely garden, is a wonderful and calm place for a retreat. Colombo airport: approx. 1.5 to 2-hour drive

Why you’ll love it...
It is the little details that make this hotel special. The flower petals on the bed on arrival, the smiles on the faces of the incredibly friendly staff. The explanation during meals, the yoga studio with sea views, the flower bath and blessing on departure. Austrian Peter Huber and his Singhalese wife Sumendra founded Lotus Villa in 1995 and have created a little Ayurveda paradise by the Indian Ocean.

Wellness, Spa and Health
Ayurveda is the speciality at Lotus Villa. Four doctors and 16 therapists are on hand to supervise you on your retreat. The programme is not overly rigorous, and consists of around four treatments a day, varying from massages and yoga to herbal therapies. More intensive programmes with six treatments a day are also possible. As significant breaks are factored in, you’ll be occupied between 9am and 3pm. Each day after dinner, you will receive your treatment plan for the following day.

Holistic Activities and Sports
  • Extensive weekly activity schedule (including yoga, meditation, tai chi)
  • Cooking demonstrations
  • Excursions (additional fee)
  • Workshops on Ayurveda, nutrition, yoga, astrology, etc.

What’s on the Menu
At Lotus Villa, the chefs cook light and healthy Ayurvedic food. This means no coffee, tea, alcohol or fatty foods. A three-course menu is tailored to your dosha type (body type) at breakfast, lunch and dinner. This might be crackers with homemade jam without added sugar, fruit, soup, and sometimes meat or fish. All the food is delicious and beautifully presented. There is a community table and smaller tables, whatever your preferences.

We love...
  • The community table, an easy spot to connect with other guests
  • From May – September, kids are more than welcome. Childcare is free of charge, there are many  activities and there are no extra costs for you to have them stay in the same -connected - room. 

Good to know
  • Level floors, wide doors and adjustable shower and toilet: this resort is suitable for those who are less mobile
  • If you are on an intensive Panchakarma programme (with a minimum stay of 21 days), each kilo you lose you will receive a €50 cash back (available for all stays from May - September)

  • Outdoor Swimming pool
  • Library
  • 24-hour reception
  • Gift shop
  • Garden

There are nineteen rooms in total. These aren’t excessively luxurious, but they are clean and tidy. The rooms are comfortable, fitted with a ceiling fan, mosquito net, desk and bathroom with shower cubicle. There is no TV or air-conditioning. Nor is there a telephone, but if you need anything, all you need to do is push a button and someone will come to your room right away. Water (hot and cold) is in your room. All rooms have the same look & feel, but differ in the views. Most rooms are located at the frontside, with seaview. Some rooms are located at the back, with gardenview.

De medewerkers en dokters van Lotus Villa nemen hun zorg voor hun gasten heel serieus. Ze zijn vriendelijk, attent en zorgzaam. De wil van de chief-docter is wet. Niets gebeurd zonder overleg met haar. Het eten aan een gemeenschappelijke tafel vond ik fijn. Er is geen buffet en halve porties waren voor mij voldoende. De behandelingen (en natuurlijk is er verschil tussen de ene en de andere behandelaar) en attenties heb ik als een warm bad ervaren en ik ging weg met een glimlach en fijne ervaringen. Verhalen van andere (met name Duits sprekende) gasten, waren niet altijd enthousiast. Zij wilde meer invloed op behandelingen en de uitkomst. Dit heeft naar mijn idee te maken met voorbereiden en weten waar Pancha karma voor staat: helen van je basis. Het aanbod van een andere Pancha karma kuur moet wel uitzonderlijk zijn. Lotus Villa heeft een warm plekje in mijn hart.

Wederom genoten van 2 weken onderdompelen in het Singalese Ayurvedische resort Lotus Villa. Met name de vriendelijkheid van de behandelaars, restaurantpersoneel tot en met de tuinman aan toe is een kadootje.
