An award winning Ayurvedic Yoga Meditation Retreat where we teach our guests a way of living towards a happier, healthier, and more fulfilling life. At Plantation Villa, we draw upon the ancient wisdom of Ayurveda, Yoga and Buddhist teachings for a way of life in harmony with oneself and the environment.
We aim to establish three pillars of health, according to our view of body, mind and spirit. When this triad is working together in harmony, taking into consideration each individual specific needs and constitutions, the path to holistic wellbeing can be reached.
The body is the first pillar. Our physical structures achieve their ideal possibilities when balanced through a continuous combination of exercise, sound sleep and behaviour, and good eating habits.
The mind and the body are inherently linked. Any change in the body can have ripple effects into our mind, with the power to alter our perspectives, thoughts, feelings and emotions and changes in our mindset can affect our body’s range of capabilities.
Spirit is the final pillar, tying together body and mind with a sense of belonging, community, and purpose. The experience of our spirit is reflected when living with a sense of authenticity and selflessness. Spiritually teaches us that all we need is already present within.
Your experience here at Plantation Villa will be different from the standard tourist spa Ayurveda resorts. Our treatments are highly personalised as the Ayurvedic doctors work with you to bring balance to your body and mind through a variety of treatments and herbal medicines.
We are a social enterprise; we exist to make the life of others better. The profits of our retreats are transferred to our own charity, the Metta Trust. We work tirelessly to improve the lives of underprivileged communities with our many community-based projects covering housing, education, healthcare and community development. Conservation and nature projects are also incredibly important to us. We believe in protecting nature and wildlife as we believe it is our duty to care for all those around us.
Our UK and Sri Lanka Retreats offer a unique point of difference to other retreats. Our objective is not just to thoroughly pamper you,
we also aim to bring happiness, health and change into your life and ultimately bring you closer to your own true self.
