Ulpotha was everything I was hoping it would be and so much more. I found peace and clarity, so much natural beauty, THE BEST yoga instructor and a lovely group of people to share it all with during my 1 week retreat in this magical place. I can't recommend it enough!

Ulpotha has been the MOST SPECIAL retreat place I have ever been too. The place has its very own soul based on unconditional love, its luxury is made out of nature with all its trees and flowers, the diversity of animals, the most heartily local people caring for you and the founders team with the greatest attention to detail. At its core sits an enchanted lake, open to swimming for the guests as well as a meeting space for the locals in the early evening. The lake is surrounded by a diverse forest and rocks to climb up to for the best views for sun set and sun rise. Spending two weeks there and you feel deeply connected to your core essence again. Ulpotha founders & team have really understood how to live luxurious with and in nature with the minimal human footprint. A place

We have had the most magical week at Ulpotha. Everything from superbe Yoga teacher and therapists, great village Ayurveda to delicious Sri Lankan vegetarian food to beautiful huts to refreshing lake and not to forget about the wonderful host and villagers who make you feel so welcome in a genuine way. We can highly recommend Ulpotha even for people with no experience in Yoga/Ayurveda (like us). To the whole Ulpotha team, thank you with all our hearts.

Ulpotha is unlike anywhere else in the world - a little bit of paradise on earth. The people, the place, the ambience, the kindness - it all engenders a warm, enveloping feeling of welcome and well being. Once bitten by the Ulpotha bug you will be hooked and feel the need to keep returning.
