Plantation Villa in Detail

Your Ayurveda & Yoga Resort

The award-winning Plantation Villa, located in the south-west of Sri Lanka, about 30 minutes from Kalutara Beach, is nestled in lush tropical gardens, tea, and spice plantations. This eco-friendly and socially committed resort offers a peaceful haven for guests seeking tranquility, serenity, and peace. The property is surrounded by tropical trees and wild birds and features a pool amidst greenery, a rice field, a rubber plantation, an organic fruit, vegetable, and spice garden, as well as a mahogany and coconut plantation.

The Concept

"We believe in every tree, every bird, and every breeze that connects our villa with the world around us. Inspired by the roots of our ancestors and indigenous practices, we take you on a continuous, interconnected, six-step journey to well-being (Heart, Mind, Body, Community, Environment, Spirit)."

1. Heart: Emotional well-being and love. The core of the process is understanding the primal need of every human to be cared for. Plantation Villa is inspired by Buddhist teachings, especially Metta - loving kindness. You will learn many tools to help you achieve emotional stability and inner peace.

2. Mind: Knowledge and wisdom. Plantation Villa bases its knowledge on Vedic and Buddhist teachings, modern medicine, naturopathy, homeopathy, nutrition, fitness, and much more. This knowledge enables us to teach guests the art of mindfulness.

3. Body: Physical well-being and holistic healing. Our experienced doctors offer a range of Ayurvedic treatments. Plantation Villa welcomes patients with cancer, depression, paralysis, and other conditions. The body is further supported with healthy food, dietary advice, and additional offerings such as hiking and cycling tours.

4. Community: At Plantation Villa, you are at the heart of the village, hosted and cared for by the community. The authenticity and sincere friendliness will make you feel part of the community. Helping others expands your own mind and connection to the world around you. As a guest, you are welcome to participate in communal activities in the village.

5. Environment: Taking the inner journey outward. Plant a tree, feel the earth beneath your feet, and the quiet rustling of the forest as it comes to life. Your process is enhanced by connecting with nature.

6. Spirit: Awakening the spirit means fulfilling the heart, healing the body, nourishing the mind, connecting with others, and reconnecting with the planet we come from. In this way, you discover complete well-being.

The surroundings of Nehinna are characterized by lush greenery and breathtaking landscapes. Gentle hills, dense forests, and fertile fields shape the scenery. Enjoy the daily sweeping views over dozens of shades of green. The area is ideal for light hikes - such as to the waterfall or over small hills. The city of Kalutara, known for its beautiful beaches and rich history, is located nearby Nehinna (about 25 minutes by car).

Dining & Leisure

The healthy organic cuisine creates a variety of Ayurvedic tridosha dishes with modern influences, consisting of fresh fruit, vegetables, and herbs from our own cultivation or local producers. Guests are also welcome to pick the fruits and vegetables themselves. Allergies and intolerances can be accommodated. All the water used comes from the four natural spring wells on the property.

Ayurveda Center

Our international team includes 3 experienced Ayurvedic doctors (1 doctor available 24/7), therapists, yoga instructors, trainers, and monks, all dedicated to the rejuvenation of body, mind, and spirit through natural healing methods. The resort offers daily Hatha Yoga and meditation in the Yoga Shala and the Meditation Hall amidst nature. Additionally, workshops and lectures focusing on various aspects of yoga and meditation are available, along with an on-site pharmacy. Post-chemo program available upon request.
