Lotus Villa in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

Lotus Villa is located in the southwest of Sri Lanka on the long sandy beach of Ahungalla in an idyllic garden with a waterfall and meditation fountain. Opened in 1982, initially used as a guest house and later distinguished as an Ayurveda Hospital in 1998, this facility, specializing in traditional Ayurveda, is still managed by the Austrian founding family, the Hubers. The founder, Peter Huber, experienced firsthand the healing powers of Ayurveda, which led to the success story of the resort. The villa welcomes guests with a very familial atmosphere and personal service, impressing with Western standards and high environmental awareness. Its own water treatment facility ensures that tap water is purified to international standards for drinking, and wastewater is treated for use in irrigating the vegetable/herb garden. Organic products from the garden are used in the kitchen and the Ayurveda pharmacy. Plastic is replaced by glass.

Dining & Leisure

Experience the charm of an open, lovingly designed Ayurveda restaurant with sea view, where specially tailored Ayurvedic dishes are freshly and individually served according to your body type (Dosha). Sometimes, nuances in preparation (such as with or without salt) determine whether the food is merely nourishment or also medicine for you. Individual meal plans for each guest are communicated by the head Ayurveda doctor to the chefs, ensuring meticulous implementation. Delicious fruits, coconuts, and vegetables from our own organic cultivation often complete your menu. At Lotus Villa, you are invited to forget time and truly embrace the moment without a watch. You will be summoned to meals by bell (and personally for treatments) - a delightful spectacle.

Ayurveda Center

The traditional Ayurveda prevention and intensive therapy programmes at Lotus Villa are especially designed for guests seeking a holistic engagement with themselves and their personal condition, appreciating medically high-quality Ayurveda in a family-like setting. Suitable for pre and post care for various conditions (e.g., women's ailments, post-Covid). At the Ayurveda Center or the in-house clinic, you will experience the professionalism and passion of a well-coordinated team of experienced Ayurveda doctors, therapists, and nurses. Assistant doctors and therapists are available around the clock.

At Lotus Villa, treatments are not provided on request, but are individually tailored to you and the best possible therapy success by the doctors' prescriptions. The facility includes several massage rooms, herbal and steam baths in traditional local style, an Ayurvedic herbal sauna, and a stone oil tub for skin treatments. The prescribed treatments and the reasons for their selection are carefully explained to you.

In the licensed production area, the Ayurveda pharmacy with oil kitchen, oils for treatments and Ayurvedic medicine are produced in-house. In the Ayurveda garden, plants for Ayurvedic medicine thrive, which are not a necessary part of the therapy (depending on the indication). The products are exclusively for hotel guests and are not for sale nationally or internationally; however, purchases can be made for post-treatment at home if needed.

Additional consultations with specialists in cancer, stroke, dermatology, ENT, and dentistry, as well as with Western-trained doctors are available, blood and urine tests among others are chargeable (payable on-site).

Pavilion by the sea for therapy-supporting yoga, meditation, and Tai Chi (meditation in motion).

Free Time

The expansive garden, shaded by coconut palms, offers tropical vastness, fresh sea air, and a dreamy view of the sea and the extensive Ahungalla sandy beach (with round-the-clock security service). Additionally, the pool with sun loungers and the library with books in English invite you to relax in the garden. The leisure offerings at Lotus Villa are diverse, ranging from traditional music by the Lotus Villa Band to magic or dance performances, as well as Sinhalese language or Ayurvedic cooking classes. Excursions are available starting from the second week, as the first week is meant for restful tranquility on the peaceful grounds.

Getting There

Additional information

Hotel rooms at a glance

Lotus Villa offers a total of 19 small, yet exquisite rooms with ceiling fans, mosquito nets, alarm bells, and Wi-Fi. The rooms do not have air conditioning, as it is important that the body is in the ideal condition for cleansing - cold air could cool the body and close the pores. Deliberately, there is also no TV, newspapers, or telephones to reduce stress and enhance the recovery value. 16 of the rooms face the sea side, 3 face the garden side (both single and double rooms). Wheelchair-accessible rooms and combination rooms with connecting doors are available on request via SpaDreams.

The facility is super in terms of size and really great location, a super nice big garden. However, the facility needs to be renovated. The young therapists need more training. The staff are very, very friendly
