Shunyata Villa is magical. After the two weeks Ayurvedic treatment we felt "reborn" . The rooms are lovely+large with plenty of gowns and towels on hand if needed. The food was delicious, wholesome, lovingly presented, a real treat we looked forward 3 times a day! The doctor, guest relation managers and staff were delightful and most importantly competent … The...

We visited Sri Lanka for the first time and were impressed of this lovely island. After some days visiting different places we stayed at Shunyata Villa which is definitely a piece of heaven. It's not only because this piece of land is so special but it's also due to the team of the villa. The whole team is just taking...

I now visited the second time Shunyata Villa and came back - again - more calm and with 2 kg less - while actually eating the dessert always twice. The saying “Once on your lips, forever on your hips” actually does not apply in the Shunyata Villa. :-) The severed food is delicious and healthy. Every day changing dishes and...

My partner and I have had various trips to Sri Lanka and have stayed at numerous places (some good and some bad). On our second trip to Sri Lanka we discovered Shunyata Villa and it was by a long way the best place we have stayed in on the Island. The Villa and rooms were beautiful which created a fantastic...

The rooms are very light with a lot of white color and there are very spacious. The upstairs rooms have a balcony, where you can close the big glass windows. Air condition and ipod stations can be...

If you want to escape from the 'girating touring groups' and the sea-side resorters, Shunyata Villa and its staff have exactly what your're looking for. You melt into the life of the 5 bedroom house and garden that is wedged on the Galle to Colombo Road but which offers hospitality and generosity, a white, airy, baroque candle-lit bedroom, silk sheets...

We stayed here for our final weekend of our honeymoon in sri lanka and it was the perfect place to end our holiday. The rooms were stunning, the service exceptional and fantastic food. We didn't have any of the Ayuverda treatments, but the facillities looked excellent. For us, the best part was that they made us feel very special. From...

We liked the look of the website which is only available in German. We did not book the Ayuverda treatment but enjoyed our stay so much we have booked again for next year. The trains run very close to the property but we never found that they spoiled our stay. The food was very much local fare but fresh and...

The Shunyata Villa is owned by a very easy going German couple, Juergen and Maria, who respect their guests privacy a 100% and yet are available to offer excellent advice of where to stay to go in Sri lanka. The Villa itself has very large beautifully decorated rooms. The optional Ayurveda treatments take place in a little charming elevated beach...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Spend your Ayurveda holiday in an exceptional beautiful ambience and get pampered on the highest level.Shunyata Villa welcomes you!The quaint and exclusive Ayurveda Health Resort - Shunyata Villa - is located on the uncrowded beaches of Induruwa, on Sri Lanka's South-West Coast, about 65 km south of the commercial capital Colombo.The transition from the roughly 1200 sqm sized property to the sea is fluent, allowing you to enjoy your meals in a tropical, relaxed atmosphere. Why not dine under mangrove trees directly off the beach? The stone and coral free sea is perfect for swimming and guarantees hours of unspoiled fun. Due to the protected location of the Iduruwa Bay, Shunyata Villa was not affected by the 2004 Tsunami.The excitement and the positive feedback of our guests confirmed the well balanced concept. Harmony and peace within the resort combined with the genuine friendly staff is highly appreciated by our guests and is the ideal foundation for a perfect holiday, relaxing wellness weeks or professional Ayurveda treatments.Environmental responsibility is a must for us. In our kitchen we only use fresh ingredients of the highest quality, preferably from organic producers. The water for daily use comes directly from our well - and is heated by solar energy. Our mineral water is delivered in big re-usable containers and served in stylish glass bottles. Our waste water flows into special antiseptic tanks and not into the sea.SHUNYATA VILLA - The Place To Be ... more   less
