My experience at Ulpotha was nothing more than positive for the week stay in the lush jungle setting of Sri Lanka. Being amongst nature and fresh air was simply magic, open mud hut accommodation, incredible vegetarian food, yoga, swimming in the fresh water lake, Ayurveda treatment, and a fantastic complimentary massage.
2 hour yoga sessions in the morning and evening, and you can certainly choose to miss out, lie in or chill in the afternoon depending on your energy. I didn’t miss one and feel much stronger for it!
The food is organically grown in the rich gardens and prepared in a small very well managed kitchen from the beautiful friendly staff, I had a sneak peek often as the aromas were delightful. Of course I was hungry from all the yoga!
Ulpotha is the extreme of being chilled out or busy with Ayurveda, massage or a relaxed schedule. It’s a safe place for individual travellers where you can be yourself by yourself or with your partner.
We had 10 people in our diverse group, this was fortunate as we were able to connect during yoga, lunch and dinner about our daily experiences with many laughs. The 22 acre property comfortably accommodates 20 guests but can increase depending on the event.
You do not spend any money in Ulpotha unless you want to purchase further treatments (or cook books or 3 as I did).
Lastly Suzi is the ultimate host, who makes each an every person feel welcome and safe and guides us if we need assistance. She is a very special Woman with an amazing energy who will make you want to visit again and again.
