Antique doors, chic wenge furniture, and lace bed runners representing the excellent craftsmanship of southern Sri Lanka are relaxed yet more refined than traditional eco-conscious retreats. Dove-white walls are the perfect canvas for artistic touches such as locally inspired block printing and more art to come with artists in residence plans afoot.
Sleeping up to 20 guests, each of the twin and king size double ensuites are carefully designed to allow natural ventilation so as to avoid the need for air-conditioning, thanks to the beach-side location the resort is naturally cool.

Kundalini yoga classes are conducted twice a day. This is an ancient form of yoga, known as the yoga of awareness. Through regular practice, it offers heightened consciousness and a greater sense of well being. It is not a yoga that is based on postures, or asana, which makes it different to most mainstream yoga styles. A typical class consists of a series of physical movements, also known as a kria, a relaxation, and a meditation.
Movements can be held for two or three minutes, often combined with a breathing pattern. This allows energy pathways within the body to open and rebalance. Once these energy channels are open, physical and mental healing can begin. Meditation is a large part of Kundalini yoga. Often meditation is used to release stored emotion and stress by working with breathing patterns and mantras.
Kundalini yoga is powerful, fast, and effective. It provides simple steps that anyone can do no matter of age or physical ability. No previous experience of yoga is necessary to join a class. All classes are mixed ability.
