VENUE
satori sri lanka

Set high on a hill, overlooking the lush jungles of Southern Sri Lanka and ocean beyond, Satori Retreat offers a gentle and inspiring natural environment in which to find your centre.

Our beautiful sanctuary at the jungle’s edge is conveniently located 3 kms inland from the picture perfect beaches of Unawatuna and World Heritage Galle Fort The capital city Colombo is just 2 hours away.

Five stylish villas and pavilions in frangipani-perfumed manicured gardens and tranquil ponds offer peace and privacy, as well as plenty of room for group activity. At the highest point, you will find a beautiful thatched roof yoga shala with plenty of room for up to 13 students, built around natural rocks and boulders; your classes accompanied with breath-taking views out to the paddy fields, hills and ocean beyond. From our spacious open-sided dining room also used as a cinema room, classroom or meeting room, you will see monkeys and numerous vibrant birds. We also offer a cool, shaded infinity pool, strings of hammocks to relax in and to compliment the healing space we have a massage pavilion with a traditional Ayurvedic massage table.

Our food is healthy, vibrant and locally sourced entirely by our on-site chef. We cater for all dining styles including vegan, vegetarian, raw and juice cleanses. Choose either half or full board options according to your program, with nourishing coconut water and herbal tea available all day.

Sri Lanka is an undiscovered secret within the retreat market. Our venue offers you a new destination with new experiences to be enjoyed and explored. The colonial and traditional feel of Satori offers an authentic Sri Lankan experience – with history, charisma and, most importantly, a relaxing atmosphere. 

The cuisine

High Vibrational Sri Lankan Cuisine

We have a wonderfully skilled chef who can prepare anything from raw food dishes to sunday roasts. As we are in Sri Lanka we aim to give guests as much as a Sri Lankan culinary experience as possible leaning on the healthier side. We also have experience with detox retreats where we are able to produce litres and litres of juices , smoothies , herbal teas and broths.

Generally all meals will be served as a buffet in the communal dining room overlooking the jungle. In between main meals we can offer herbal teas , coconut water , green smoothies and so on.

All our produce is bought fresh and daily from the local markets.

Finally, if groups or individuals fancy learning the basics of Sri Lankan cuisine our chef will be happy to hold afternoon workshops if needed.

Accomodations

The Main Villa



Accommodates 6 to 8 guests in 2 double en-suites (Frangipani & Thambilli ) and 2 twin rooms (Mimosa & Library Room) with their own outside bathrooms.

 

Frangipani & Thambili Suite

Four-poster beds are the centrepieces of these airy double suites that sleep either a couple or a single guest. Teak-shuttered doors open to a rustic terracotta and ceramic bathroom with power shower. Both rooms have ceiling fans and air conditioning, as well as plenty of storage space

See pictures below

The Mimosa Suite & The Library Room

These twin rooms connect to the main suites and can accommodate up to 2 guests each in single four poster beds. For groups needing more space for children, there is a mezzanine sleeping space in Mimosa that can accommodate a further guest. Ceiling fans and air-conditioning cool the rooms, which are both connected to their own outside bathrooms.

The Coach House

Located within a few steps of the main villa , the Coach house, suitable for 3 guests, is an open-plan 1100 sq ft suite with its own ante room.
 

This beautiful Balinese-style building overlooks the infinity pool, while rear antique double doors lead up a stone staircase to the yoga sala on the jungle ridge and ocean view above. The villa has its own private veranda with white muslin curtains, a writing table and open mahogany balustrade.
 

Inside, there are two double beds, a partly outdoor en-suite bathroom and an attached ante room with a single bed. Rustic Dutch-style tiles, antique furniture and comfortable sofas piled with soft cushions enhance the relaxed and stylish space.

The Garden Villa

This suite sleeps 2 guests in a double and single bed in a large sized room . This suite has an attached shower/ bathroom looking out into nature and there is also a good sized veranda with its own hammock to relax in. Passion fruit vines weave there way around the Colonial columns and you can sit in one of the planters chairs and enjoy the views and the nature teeming with life around you.

Excursions

Our venue offers you and your students a new destination with unique experiences to be enjoyed and explored.

Between morning and evening workshops, there’s a gap during the day for everyone to chill out in hammocks and relax by the pool but also there’s an opportunity to explore the local culture. Our mission is to help you all experience an authentic slice of Sri Lankan life whilst on retreat

Sri Lanka is a beach lover’s paradise, with mile-upon-mile of pristine palm-backed tropical beaches, warm turquoise waters and soft split sugar sands. Just 15 minutes in a Tuk Tuk from Satori Retreat through the jungle villages delivers you to a glorious coastline where you are spoilt for choice.
 

Our favourite all-rounders include Unawatuna Beach 3 km’s, with its calm waters, relaxed beach bars and street vendors offering local crafts and fabrics.

Wijiya Beach ( 3 kms )offers safe swimming in the form of a lagoon and delicious simply cooked seafood from small beachside restaurants. Stay here until the sun dips into the horizon for a heavenly sunset.

Jungle Beach (3Km’s) is also highly recommended and that can be explored as well as the beautiful peace pagoda near by.
 

For boogie boarders, Mirissa Beach & Weligama is excellent. It’s a little bit further away than the others, around 40 minutes’ drive south, but worth the journey. Keep an eye out here as it is the best place in Sri Lanka for seeing blue whales a short distance from the shore. Serious surfers head for Hikkadwua Beach, 18kms north from Unawatuna, where a huge expanse of sand is slapped by some great waves.


Our team can organise transport to any of these beaches for you.

Galle Fort – Established by the Portuguese in the 15th century, Galle was colonised by the Dutch and British – and is now a World Heritage Site. Stroll its narrow streets and ramparts (particularly lovely at sunset) for the sights and sounds of life’s patchwork; Buddhists, Tamils, Muslims and Europeans living in harmony, the energy of trade and the gentle claps at the ever-present cricket matches.

Galle Town – Best explored on foot or by Tuk Tuk. Don’t miss the exotic fruit market and myriad shops selling everything from saris to televisions.

Bike rides – Galle resident, Alex Barrett will take you on an unforgettable ride through paddy fields and jungle. Suitable for all ages, trips last 1.5 to four hours and give you a real slice of Sri Lankan village life.

Turtle Sanctuary – There are several in the area, including a well-run one in Habaraduwa, 15 minutes away.

Stilt Fisherman – Unique to Sri Lanka you can observe fisherman out on their poles close to the shoreline.

Tea Estate – The Handunugoda Estate is 40 minutes away and has a fascinating tour around the production of white tea.

Whale watching – Mirissa is best place in Sri Lanka for seeing blue whales and dolphins a short distance from the shore.

Yala Safari Park/ Udawalawe – Leave Galle at 4am to arrive for sunrise and sightings of leopard, elephants and crocodiles.

Temples – Sri Lanka is predominately Buddhist and you’ll find temples everywhere, including Yatagala and Kalatuwa.

Kogala Lake Sunset Tour – Marvel at the spectacle of thousands of birds and bats all flying to a lake island for the night.

Surfing – There are a number of surf schools in the area, and great waves at Unawatuna, Wijiya and Weligama.
