Inside the entrance hall at Samadhi you are watched over by a silk tapestry depicting seven Buddhist monks each holding a lotus blossom in their hand. Each monk is a different shade of brown. Likewise, the cultural diversity of this island is reflected in the villagers, who form the core of what makes Samadhi run smoothly. They are unspoiled and courteous - every man, woman, or boy will calmly break from sweeping the stone pathway, lighting the oil lamp, or picking fresh produce for your lunch to wish you Ayubowan! the traditional Sinhala welcome which means Let there be long life!

The inspiration for the design and architecture was born of meditation. And so you willingly leave your city husk behind at the gate with no signal for mobile phones, it is the perfect opportunity to let nothing interrupt the sounds of forest birdsong, of tree frogs and crickets, and the whisper of the breeze from the trees.

The thirteen pavilions, which lean out of the hillside, are veritable temples of tranquility. They are designed to make you feel you are the only person staying here. Privacy is everything. Yet there are no unnecessary walls. This results in a truly serene environment surrounded by urns, art, and treasures dating back to a time Kandy was a royal realm. There, everything is king-sized. The Indonesian teak bed in a double room is spacious enough to sleep three people comfortably. But even the smallest suite provides a four-poster bed to dream in.

The spacious verandahs of each suite of rooms give onto paddy fields, nearby mountains, and bench terraces filled with herb gardens or pineapples. Bamboos reach out with their four-fingered leaves to fan a breeze at you. In the surrounding natural forest, mango, toddy palm, mahogany, and jak trees rub necks with giant bamboo, avocado, and Chinese guava.

Programma

Located on an abandoned tea plantation on the edge of the Dumbara valley and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy roads, Kandy Samadhi Centre is a beautiful and tranquil retreat that will compel you to relax and contemplate what is important in life. At Samadhi, you will have a perfect opportunity to let nothing interrupt the sounds of forest birdsong, of tree frogs and crickets, and the whisper of the breeze from the trees. Here at the retreat, you can:

  • get to practice your yoga and meditation in the beautiful shala, opened on 4 sides and with the sounds of the jungle and river accompanying your session
  • enjoy amazing massages by the resident Ayurvedha therapist in an unforgettable outdoor setting by candlelight
  • have a delicious meal, made from fresh local produce (much of which is grown on the grounds) under the stars in the open-air restaurant
  • sleep peacefully with the only sound coming from the river below.

So, escape to nature and surrender your senses to the serene environment of natural forests, healing herbs, paddy fields, rivers, nearby mountains, and wildlife. Reserve a place at Kandy Samadhi Centre for that off-the-track vacation that will re-energize and bring you closer to yourself!

Retreat locatie

Fifty minutes northeast of Kandy, the fertile landscape becomes a mass of lush vegetation reverberating with unfamiliar birdsong. The human populace too seems a different breed, profligate with smiles and allowing their abundant good sat sung to spill over and cloak the visitor. Go past the triangular ambalama and up the steps where you squeeze past the statue of a giant Hindu goddess - half-woman, half horse. There you will find the beautiful Samadhi Retreat Centre located.

The Kukul-Oya river meets the Hulu-Ganga, conveniently creating several spots for river bathing amongst the rocks and baby rapids. There, Plumbago (graphite) was found in lumps amongst the pebbles. But the locals had since been driven to eke out a meager living selling fruit and vegetables off roadside stalls.
