Yoga Retreat - Sri Lanka

Jim's Farm Villas and Jim's Beach Villas, Sri Lanka
Tuesday 13th September 2022 - Saturday 24th September 2022 
A unique once in a life-time opportunity to combine a visit to the cultural heart of Sri Lanka with a relaxing beach resort 
 

I’m really excited to be running an 11 day Yoga and Spa Retreat to Sri Lanka combining a 6 day visit to an organic spice farm in the Cultural Triangle with a 5 day visit to a beautiful beach side villa in the fishing village of Dodanduwa. 

 

Jim’s Farm Villas is owned by English couple Kevin and Janet Abbott. They bought a derelict coconut farm and developed it as a diverse 50 acre organic fruit and spice farm and a beautiful boutique hotel. 

 

It is centrally located, midway between Drambulla and Kandy, within the Cultural triangle. As well as Yoga and meditation classes, you can relax by the pool, visit the Spa, learn to cook delicious Sri Lankan dishes, take tuk-tuk or bike rides to the local village and local temples or take a guided walk around the 50 acre farm.

 

There will be additional day trips to some of the local ancient cities Cultural Triangle sites  which may include: Matale Tea District and waterfall swimming, Wild elephant safari at Habarana and ancient city of Polonnaruwa, Sigiriya rock - the eighth wonder of the world, Kandy - Temple of the Tooth; and Botanical Gardens and Tea Experience.

Jim's Beach Villas in the fishing village of Dodanduwa on the beautiful west Coast near the famous beach resort of Hikkaduwa. It  has recently been purchased to provide a stunning beachside resort to complement the Spice Farm in the heart of the cultural triangle.  Thus giving you the opportunity for a 2 centre holiday, combining the best of both worlds.  Six nights will be spent at Jim's Farm Villas and 4 nights at Jim's Beach Villas.
