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.

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!
