35 Mahadeira Yodakandiya, Thissamaharama, Sri Lanka

Yoga Pur Retreat Sri Lanka

Experience the spiritual charm of Sri Lanka at our peaceful and pristine resort, enjoy the holistic treatment at our Ayurveda center and explore impressive tour destinations such as Yala National Park or religious sites like the holy town of Kataragama. Delve deeper into the calm atmosphere surrounding the venue and relax at our private beach, Kirinda Beach.

The Thaulle Resort is becoming a hotspot as a Yoga retreat and Ayurveda centre in the southeast of Sri Lanka. As we only employ excellent teachers and doctors we are able to provide a life changing experience to our valued guests. Our Yoga concept is based on the teachings of Maharishi Patanjali, who is also referred to as the Father of Yoga. We follow Ashtanga Yoga and the main base is Hatha Yoga.

One of the advantages in Thaulle Resort is the fact that the Yoga sessions can be combined with Ayurveda treatments. Ayurveda is often used to boost and further benefit Yoga. Yoga and Ayurveda are a perfect team for health, wellbeing and rejuvenation. As the Hotel has its own Ayurveda doctor, the guest is free to have a consultation anytime.

Every stay at our hotel is unique because none of our 28 residential rooms are alike. You can watch the fascinating play of nature’s colors from your room’s balcony each morning as the rising sun reflects on the surface of Lake Yoda. Each of the rooms at Thaulle Resort has its own panorama windows and balcony. You can also enjoy a great view of the lake from our restaurant and garden.

Our hotel is uniquely designed and influenced by traditionally Singhalese craftsmanship as well as by the work of Sri Lanka’s famous architect Geoffrey Bawa. All rooms were furnished by local builders and follow the guidelines of Vastu, an ancient Indian system of harmonic architecture. Enjoy the unique charm of your room that is complemented by Singhalese antiquities and wood from Lake Yoda.

West meets East in the design of the bathrooms: white ceramic sinks and bath tubs as well as chromatically designed amenities and shower heads from Europe create a beautiful juxtaposition with dark brown, almost rusty-looking stone tiles from Sri Lanka. Handmade vases are filled with fragrant, locally produced natural cosmetics; further tasteful bathroom accessories are made of recycled wood.

Included excursions

Sithulpawwa Stone Temple

The Sithulpawwa Stone Temple looks back on 2,200 years of historical developments and is one of the most important Buddhist landmarks. It was built two centuries BC. The trip includes a visit to the caves, pagoda, houses of prayer and lakes.

Excursion to Kataragama Temple

Kataragama is one of the most important cities for Hindus, Buddhists and Muslims in Sri Lanka. Situated at the foothills of Kataragama Peak, close to Yala National Park and Menik Ganga river (better known as “river of gems”), it is frequently visited by many pilgrims from all over Sri Lanka. The most important parts of a visit to Kataragama are the viewings of Kiri Vehera and Maha Devale, a stupa and a temple that are of extraordinary importance for most Singhalese.

Additionally, you can find a Hindu temple and a mosque in Kataragama. All of these buildings are very impressive and historically as well as religiously important. Get to know Kataragam and Sri Lanka’s temples!

Trip to Kirinda Beach

If you’re an early riser, you might want to decide to make the 10 minute drive in a tuktuk and visit the fish market in Kirinda. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the sunrise before you experience the daily business of the fish market. This is where local fishermen sell the catch of the day and provide the whole area of Kirinda with fresh fish. You can also decide to make your trip to the beach later in the day.

Many locals visit the beach on the weekend. If you drive along the coastline for a couple of kilometers, you arrive at an empty beach that exceeds all your expectations. For those of you who value peace and quiet, we can organize a trip to this special place.

Trip to the farmers’ market and sightseeing

Sri Lanka is known for its colorful markets where farmers sell their produce twice a week. This is where market criers promote their products, people love to bargain and buyers are always looking for the best available offers. On Thursdays and Sundays you can experience this hubbub in Tissamaharama – don’t miss out on it! Here you can find numerous vegetables and fruits that aren’t available anywhere in Europe, but are made into delicious curries here every day.

Try a King Coconut or enjoy the taste of pineapples and mangoes no European supermarket has to offer. We are happy to organize a tuktuk for you to get to the market so you can see the vegetables, fruits, spices and locals for yourself.

Retreat location

Welcome to the heart of the Singhalese nature! Leave behind the worries of the Western world as you spend your vacation in the serenity of our resort. Endless rice terraces adorn the Hambantota District that our hotel is situated in – a view with a relaxing effect for your soul.

Thaulle Resort is located right next to Lake Yoda, not far from Yala National Park where elephants and leopards roam through the picturesque savanna. However, Sri Lanka’s oldest integral nature reserve is only one of many fascinating tour destinations in the area. You can usually enjoy the weather: due to the advantageous geographical location, the region is untroubled by heavy rainfall even during the rain period that lasts from April to June.

The property further has its own Yoga and Meditation hall that overlooks the scenic and historically important Yoda Lake. The natural surroundings and the beauty of the region offer an endless number of locations for peaceful meditation. The Indian Ocean (Kirinda Beach) is a mere 15 minutes away from the hotel as well.

Things to do (optional)

Thaulle Resort is the ideal starting point to discover the rich diversity Sri Lanka has to offer. Explore the spiritual wonders of religious sites or visit Yala National Park to marvel at the impressive flora and fauna of the region. During your stay at our hotel you can experience Sri Lanka in a way that no travel guide can even imagine. Let yourself be enchanted by the native diversity of this beautiful island.

In accordance with our Green Philosophy, we value soft tourism and sustainability when organizing tours and excursions. An optional trip to Ella by train including the visit of a tea plantation can be booked for an extra fee.

Yala National Park

Yala National Park is located in the far south east of Sri Lanka and borders the Indian Ocean. It is popular for its large population of wild leopards. Yala was declared a national park in 1938. A visit to Yala National Park is an unforgettable adventure: watch exotic animals such as graceful leopards and mighty elephants in their natural habitat.

Udawalawa National Park

Udawalawa National Park is located at the border of Sabaragamuwa and the Uva Province. It is an important refugium for water birds and the majestic Sri Lanka elephant. The park is a popular tour destination and receives the third highest number of visitors among all parks in the country.

Bundala National Park

Bundala National Park is one of the most important destinations for birdwatchers in Sri Lanka.

Tissa Archaelogical Temple

Around 2,000 years ago, Tissamaharama was of extraordinary significance in Sri Lanka. Mahanga, the younger brother of King Devanampiya, had to flee from Anuradhapura after disagreements with the common folk and arrived in this region, where he founded Tissamaharama. After several wars with the previous inhabitants of the region, the Southern Province obtained a new area called Ruhuna. This territory provided protection for many Singhalese kings during the attacks of invaders from South India.

Tissamaharama has a rich past and the remains of these historic times can still be seen today. Complex irrigation systems like Tissa or Lake Yoda, the monasteries of Yatala Dagoba or Tissamaharama Vihara as well as the ruins of Chandagiri and even parts of the old palace of the king are sights you should not miss.

Taking a tuktuk to Tissa Wewa is great if you want to take a walk in the late afternoon and watch the sunset. Around the lake, numerous trees are home to thousands of bats that sleep during the day and become active at night.


If you want to take a closer look at Sri Lanka’s craftsmanship, we would like to invite you to a traditional ceramics workshop. The original way of producing vases, bowls and pots enables you to authentically experience Sri Lanka’s traditional roots first hand.

We accompany you to a family that has been producing traditional ceramic products for two generations. Be witness to the basic living conditions of this family and the hospitality they share with so many other Singhalese.

Bicycle tour

Bicycles are available at all times and you can make a tour to explore your surroundings. Visit many great places in your immediate neighborhood, such as fruit plantations, small shops, and discover the local village life.

Spa treatments

Individual Ayurveda treatments

If you are curious or just looking for a bit of relaxation you can enjoy one of our Ayurveda treatments that we also offer individually. These include foot massages, facial massages, head massages, oil massages, acupuncture and yoga. We are happy to advise you on which treatment might be best for your unique requirements, for example relaxation, detox, or anti-aging.

Of course, our Ayurveda doctor Dr. Upul will examine you before the individual treatments to make sure the treatment is perfectly tailored to your current needs. Treatments can be booked at any time at the hotel.
