Villa Velmarie Yoga & Ayurveda House in Detail

Your Ayurveda & Yoga Resort

At Villa Velmarie Yoga & Ayurveda House, a villa from the Dutch colonial era, you will experience 'magnificence in simplicity' with Ayurveda and Yoga in a quiet, family-like setting with about 4,000 sqm of garden. A fisherman's beach (not suitable for swimming) is about a 2-minute walk away, and the centre of Beruwela is approximately 2 km away. Swimming beaches are about 15 minutes away.

Location & Surroundings

The small town of Maggona is located about a 60-minute drive south of the capital Colombo, near the coastal town of Beruwela. The southwest of Sri Lanka is enticing with rainforests, stunning beaches, and many cultural attractions.

Food & Drinks

Villa Velmarie House offers Ayurvedic, predominantly vegetarian menus suitable for all Dosha types (tridosha). It serves local dishes with local products, fresh juices, and fruits.

Ayurveda Center

An experienced Ayurveda doctor from a traditional family, who is a member of the Sinhalese Ayurveda Society, awaits you with his own Ayurveda clinic. In 3 treatment rooms, various Ayurvedic massages (e.g., face, head, body, foot), Shirodhara oil forehead pouring, herbal inhalation, and baths are offered (chargeable during Yoga Retreat). The Ayurveda doctor is permanently on call, and daily yoga and meditation sessions are held by the pool.


The accommodation features an outdoor pool (approx. 12 x 3 m) with sun loungers. Various excursion options are available, including the nearby bathing beach, Richmond Castle in Kalutara, the Fort in Beruwela, Galle, the Kande Viharaya Temple in Aluthgama, and a turtle conservation station in Kosgoda. Water sports such as surfing are also available nearby, sometimes for a fee.

Since we have often done Ayurvedic healing therapies, here is a good and inexpensive option. Small resort, nice rooms, sufficient rooms, very bright, slimmed-down version of the Ayurvedic treatments because there were too few therapists, good food, nice care, clean!

Ayuveda at Vel Marie highly recommended
