I can not recommend Sri Devi highly enough. I was lucky enough to stay there as part of a wonderful yoga retreat taught by Will Wheeler. Sri Devi was beautiful, spotlessly clean and immaculately maintained. The staff were lovely, friendly and helpful and the food was amazing. Breakfast and dinner were fresh and varied, and the staff were very accommodating of any requests. Ulricke organised a variety of excursions for us and facilitated multiple trips to local beaches, recommending bars and restaurants for us. Everything was taken care of for us, thank you Ulricke for making it such a wonderful relaxing stay. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the place and would go back in a heartbeat!
Sri Devi is the perfect place for a retreat - it is a incredible space for rejuvenation and I came home relaxed and refreshed! Our group was spoiled from the second we arrived with nourishing Sri Lankan food, kind, efficient and polite staff and we were spoiled by Ulricke who shared her wealth of knowledge of Sri Lanka, arranged all trips, recommended restaurants and massage treatments. She took the time to talk to our group each day and advise on anything we needed - this was incredible. Massage treatments were uplifting, their therapist adapted each massage to individuals and I left feeling so relaxed. During the Chakra massage, I was in such a deep state of relaxation I could only feel the base on my hands - incredible experience that I am truly grateful for! I cannot thank the team enough for such an incredible retreat, Will Wheeler for amazing yoga sessions and YOAS for organising such a lovely space and programme. Thank you all so much, I won't hesitate to return and this was my first trip to Asia! …
This was our second visit and Sri Devi just gets better. 5 star hotel levels of attention to detail in every aspect of the accommodation and grounds, private villa ambience, really friendly and helpful staff. Close to Galle and Incredible beaches in a tuk tuk, which are organised for you. It’s a little slice of paradise. Highly recommend a visit. See you again soon Ulricke and team. Jim & Jenny
An amazing oasis of tranquility... perfect for our yoga retreat. Incredibly obliging, helpful and happy staff... great amenities... swimming pool, treatments, lovely gardens teeming with wildlife (monkeys, peacocks, chipmunks amongst many others). We were treated to amazing local food... with many ingredients completely new to me... Ulricke was incredibly knowledgeable about the area... and happily arranged all manner of excursions... but to be honest there really was no need to head out! (we saw elephants, went to the local temple, restaurants, etc)... which made the trip utterly painless. Highly recommended.
Have been here twice for yoga holidays and cannot fault a single thing. Friendly & helpful staff who are always smiling Amazing food and always more than enough for our group (don’t worry though it’s not wasted) 5 star service Great prices You must stay here Warning you may become used to being spoiled rotten 😄😄❤️❤️❤️
