We spent a few days in January 2020 at this beautiful house on a hill on top of a tea Plantation and it is something we will remember for a long time. Everything worked perfectly well from food to the pool to the Yoga classes and the conversations with Elke. Everyone was exceptionally friendly and we felt at home from the first minute. Elke is a star, full of passion and knowledge, she is a great person to meet and to spend time with and talk about tea, yoga, Buddhism ,history, music and literature. The combination of relax and activity, food, pool, even a walk around the plantation made our stay complete. Try it, Piero and Luisa

Everything was great, the food, rooms, pool and the yoga! The atmosphere at Niyagama House was everything you could wish for and more. The spot in Galle is perfect both close to nature but also to the Galle town.

I can't imagine there being a better place in Galle. Peaceful. Quiet. Lovely owner. She was so nice to us, my wife was pregnant and even let us stay a bit longer whilst we waited for our taxi as she wasn't feeling well. What a lovely human being! We were welcomed with drinks and a hotel towel. Breakfast was amazing. Staff are really nice. Highly recommend.

This place is like a small, hidden paradise on earth. We planned to stay 3 nights and extended it to 4, because we loved it! Good place to calm down, do Yoga and enjoy life. Elke is a really good Yoga teacher and offers not only Hatha Yoga and Meditation in the morning but also Aerial Yoga (we really recommend it), Yin Yoga on the rooftop in the evening (with a stunning sunset and view of the stars) and many others. The Yoga- Room has a wonderful view to the garden with the sound of (morning) birds- like in a fairtale. Elke is amazing. She helped us with all our wishes and concerns during our stay. The place it located near Galle, surrounded by tea and the jungle. You can see a lot of birds, at night bats and sometimes even monkeys from the jungle. The food was extraordinary delicious- not only a large selection of continental breaktfast but also sri lankian specials. The staff was really pleasant, friendly and accommodating, the room was comfortable and felt like home. The whole place is made with love and we instantly felt good there and never wanted to leave. We will definitely come again – for Yoga, good food and to calm down and let the good vibes touching our souls.

Hi Julia, a very big hug to you for writing such a long, amazing review!!! I totally enjoyed having you both here as our guests - our yoga together and our chatting after the class :-). What can be a better feeling than having a new arrival and the guests immediately plan to stay longer?1?! Thanks you so much for being our guests! All the best and keep up your good yoga! Namaste from the tea plantation, Elke
