Late review but with the experience still fresh in my mind. Don't remember ever being so relaxed. 10 days was perfect as a first retreat but I'll be definitely be increasing my stay the next time. Yes, there will definitely be a next time. Will choose a different period though, as it rained non-stop and low-season also meant fewer activities....

Despite traveling extensively both on business & pleasure I have to admit that I rarely leave reviews on Trip Advisor. However my stay at Plantation Villa was special in so many ways that deserves particular attention. I in fact left enriched & balanced, wanting to go back soon for more. I have done Ayurveda treatments in Kerala and Dubai before...

I arrived at the Plantation villa exhausted and in deep need of a break, to destress, and get away from a hectic life style. It met all my standards and more. The staff were gracious and kind, always going out of their way to please. The accomodations are superb, decorated in a relaxed elegant colonial style. Flowers were placed on...

I found myself at The Plantation Villa purely by chance after an aborted trip to Australia. After a brief acclimatization I threw myself into this wonderful opportunity. In short, it was exactly what i needed when i needed it. Great massages, great yoga, excellent talks led by the most flexible Doctor on the planet, the beautiful and inspirational Ishara and...

Let's start with the pragmatic part of the review: the rooms are nice and clean, the food is incredibly tasty, the gardens are beautiful and the staff is so warm. For me, most importantly, all of this contributed to me being able to REST my mind, to fully ENJOY the ayurvedic treatments, to really FOCUS on the yoga and meditation...

I chose Plantation Villa to take a break from New York City. I stayed there for the full three weeks on the Ayurveda package. Overall, I had a lovely experience and highly recommend it for anyone needing a break. The villa is truly beautiful. It is surrounded by plush rubber trees, palm trees, bushes, fruits, and monkeys! This is a...

My stay at Plantation Villa exceeded all expectations! I have not stopped talking about it since I left, and actually was quite sad and scared to plug into the matrix again! The yoga/Ayurveda retreat was simply wonderful! The combination of massages and treatments, combined with nutritiously balanced meals and two daily yoga classes was a perfect balance of every bit...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A 100 year old property owned by the then chief of the village and 'govi raja' - Paddy King, an honour bestowed by the government. This property has now been expanded upon to create a nature health resort. The hotel is a specialist Ayurveda / Yoga retreat with 8 rooms set amidst a 30 acre plantation of Rubber, Coconut, Cinnamon, Black Pepper and numerous vegetation, fruit trees and paddy fields. The guest experiences are personalised - each guest will be met by an Ayurvedic Doctor on the first day of their arrival who will plan their diet and ayurveda treatment plans which will be administered during their stay. Majority of the food served to guests come from our own organic gardens surrounding the hotel and daily yoga classes will be conducted to compliment their therapies. Treatments range from general relaxation / destress or detox to the cure or prevention of paralysis, cancer, piles etc. Whilst most guests come for just a relaxing experience or to loose weight or detox, we have had some guests with serious illnesses. Additionally, cookery classes, meditation classes and day trips are organised to allow guests to experience life in rural Sri Lanka. ... more   less
