Yoga Shala

Why House is an exceptional venue for an intimate special event and the team excels in catering and bespoke event management. Perfect for the more informal gatherings, including intimate weddings, milestone birthdays, kids parties, family barbecues and anniversaries.Special interest groups and corporate groups may also take over the hotel on an exclusive basis.

As we are tucked away in the jungle and paddy fields with a 3-acre tranquil garden, we are a perfect retreat for yogi’s, artists, writers and the like.

The following activities can be arranged to make your stay even more enjoyable :

Cooking Demo – This in house cooking demonstration, led by Henrietta, will guide you into how to use ingredients and spices to make that perfect Sri Lankan curry. Not only do you get to have a go at making the famous street food ‘Hopper’, but you get to eat what’s been prepared too!

Cultural Show – With music, dancers, traditional costumes, fire breathers, tumblers and more, this short event, which is usually arranged to take place prior to dinner, is not to be missed and gives a brief glimpse at the spectacle of Sri Lanka’s dazzling performers and history.

Massage – We have a massage pavilion set among the lush garden and can arrange Ayurveda treatments surrounded by the sound of the local wildlife.

Yoga – Our yoga shala is perfect for one on one or group classes and will help you easily slip in to holiday mode.
