Accommodation at Thambapanni is of colonial Dutch style. It is a gorgeous, homely, and quirky place. Each room possesses its own unique and desirable style. Every bed is four poster with mosquito net, with spacious ensuite, and some even have luxury soaking baths.

There are tea making facilities, daily supplies of mineral water, a mini bar, safe, and AC if you choose to use it. This is a place where you instantly feel comfortable and at home.

The accommodation is set back into the middle of nature so you can indulge in listening to the birdsong, wildlife, and dancing monkeys. A beautiful swimming pool allows you to cool off after a long day exploring.

Program

Each morning begins at 6.30 a.m. with a healing course of Kundalini, kriyas, meditations, pranayama, and mantra, carefully selected to move you closer to your heart, to yourself, away from fear towards love. Kundalini class is immediately followed by traditional yoga teaching by the resident yoga teacher, Ranjan. A beautiful practice, linking body to the breath, allowing the teacher to also assess your body and mind, and so select the correct course of Ayurvedic treatment for you.

Treatment time follows after breakfast or brunch with a healing Ayurvedic treatment or relaxing Watsu water therapy. The afternoon is the moment to see what will unfold. Your heart awakening practice invariably opens you up to receive opportunities, invitations, experiences, and quite miraculously you do attract in exactly what you need.

Some afternoons will be planned for Sri Lankan shopping and cookery course with Karuna, Buddhist temple visit with Reverend Chandimar, and alms giving at the House of the Elders (seva duty with Reverend Chandimar on his birthday). %Immortelle Yoga invites you to drop all the planning and allow a natural flow to take over and be mesmerized by what happens. Early evening practice begins at 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. depending on afternoon activities.

Included excursions

  • Sri Lankan Cookery Course, including shopping at fish and spice markets with local cook Karuna
  • Visit Buddhist temple with Reverend Chandimar (lunch and opportunity to discuss Buddhism and meditation with the Buddhist monk)
  • Seva (giving to the community) at the Home for the Elders with Reverend Chandimar

Retreat location

Thambapanni is set back away from the hustle and bustle of Unawatuna. You are just a few minutes' walk to the stunning long beach and its plethora of restaurants and trading activity of Unawatuna.

The beautiful quirky Galle Fort is a 15-minute tuk tuk drive away, as is the local Galle market and town for the more adventurous seeking a real experience of Sri Lankan life. Unawatuna is the perfect central location for exploring the beautiful south coastline of this paradise island.

Food

Breakfast or brunch is a beautiful buffet of the freshest fruits from the island, cereals, yogurts, curd, porridge, bread, and pastries. Eggs may be ordered. Or treat yourself to a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast, a light flavorsome curry with Sri Lankan bread to set yourself up for the day! Freshly squeezed juices, coffee, and tea.

For evening meals, you are within walking distance of a plethora of restaurants. Take your pick from the wonderful Thaproban Beach House (sister hotel to your retreat venue) and dine next to the lapping Indian Ocean. Freshly caught seafood is a speciality.
