Take a look inside Velmarie Ayurveda Retreat

A stunning colonial property built during the Dutch colonisation of Sri Lanka, Villa Velmarie underwent a refurbishment in 2014. While the villa now features a full range of modern amenities, it still retains its colonial charm.

Spread out across a sprawling compound, the living spaces in the villa blend in seamlessly with its surroundings, and are tastefully furnished with antiques handed down through the generations. Guests at Villa Velmarie will enjoy impeccable hospitality and excellent in-villa dining experiences featuring a wide array of cuisines.

In addition to accommodation, the daily rates for Velmarie Ayurveda Retreat includes three meals, consultation with an Ayurveda doctor, Ayurveda massages, and therapies.


Villa Velmarie is located in the coastal town of Beruwala. Guests will enjoy being within close proximity to the beach; Maggona Beach is just five minutes’ walk away, while Beruwala Beach is located within an easy drive from your villa.

Tours to attractions like Richmond Castle, Brief Garden, Galle Fort, Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery, Lunuganga Estate, Bentota and Kalutara Temple are easily arranged with the assistance of your villa manager.

Start off your holiday with a visit to the fortified town of Galle Fort; its charming streets are lined with striking Dutch colonial buildings and beautifully restored churches. Walking tours are a great way to explore the town, which also boasts a wide variety of restaurants, cafes and boutiques.

Culture and history buffs will appreciate visits to sites like Richmond Castle. Its immaculate architecture and extensive garden are a feast for the eyes, and a guided tour will provide illuminating insights into the sad history behind the once-splendid facade of the mansion and its owners. Brief Garden and Lunuganga Estate are worth a visit for its atmospheric setting and picture-perfect grounds, and the pristine, all-white exterior of the Kalutara Temple is a sight not to be missed.

Bentota and the Sea Turtle Farm & Hatchery at Habaraduwa are must-sees on any nature or outdoor lover’s itinerary. The former boasts an array of facilities for exciting watersports like water scooter rides, wind surfing, parasailing, water skiing, while the latter is a not-for-profit organisation that carefully carries out turtle conservation activities.

Customer reviews

10/10 (Average rating based on 5 reviews)

We stayed at villa velmarie for our honey moon. We can recommend this place without any hesitation. The program was pure ectasy and we were left much lighter and relaxed after the five days. This is an ideal holiday to relax the mind and puriy the body. The yoga techniques we learnt at the villa is some thing that we will continuing at home. The luxury comfort and experience we gained will be some thing that we cherish for a long time. A very special thank you to the team who looked after our mind body and recharged our batteries.
