Accommodatie

The retreat will be held at the most enchanting of locations, Duwa Villas. Located less than two kilometers from the pristine Indian Ocean on the South Coast of Sri Lanka, The Duwa Villas occupy the entire Thal Duwa, meaning Palm Island, located a short drive from the coastal town of Ahangama. This magnificent five-suite villa has been chosen the retreat venue as it epitomizes serenity and will have you forgetting the chaos of real world the minute you walk in through the gates.

Duwa Villas is an exquisitely presented heritage oasis that displays the charms of Dutch colonial architectural features in the most magical way. The chic interiors of the villa blend in harmony with traditional Sri Lankan charm combining local materials with contemporary design. The villa consists of five en-suite bedrooms, spacious outdoor and indoor living and dining areas, a butler’s pantry, and a private swimming pool. Verdant tropical gardens scattered with coconut palms, cinnamon and fruit trees surround the villa, providing privacy and tranquility.

In your free time, explore and discover kilometers of stunning natural river waterways that embrace this pristine environment. Try canoeing or stand up paddle boarding to absorb the peace and serenity of your home for the week. See and hear the natural wonders unfold before you. Observe the island’s wildlife firsthand, including a myriad of birds, resident monkeys, water monitors, and so much more. Take a walk through the local village, visit the local Buddhist temple, find a quiet place to soothe the mind, and just simply be. All a part of the unique Duwa Villas experience.
