Stayed at Velmarie Ayurveda Retreat with a group of friends and their families From 12th October 2017 to 19th October 2017

Villa Velmarie pays attention to every detail possible. The place is very clean with a majestic garden. It is a six room villa which is very private and homely. The ayurveda treatment here are second to none. Very experienced hands will give you a varity of treatments. We booked the relax and rejuvenate package. In the short time we experienced yoga, the art of mindfull breathing, peace, harmony, ayurveda therapies, great food, cooking demonstrations and a sincerely blessed experience. A little piece of heaven indeed.

I stayed at Villa Velmarie with a friend prior to a work related visit in Sri lanka and I'm very glad I chose them. If you have been to Sri Lanka you will know that apparently short road trips on Google Maps can be very long and laborious due to the lack of highways. Villa Velmarie is about an hour and a half by road from Colombo Airport and mercifully most of that is on SriLanka's one and only freeway. Might not sound important but trust me! - Villa Velamarie is a great small boutique villa and mercifully if you are over overpriced 5 star resorts, is a place to be genuinely cared for in a peaceful and nurturing environment rather than the superficial "pampering" provided by large resort spa services. Tailored ayuverdic food that actually is plentiful, delicious and healthy, comfortable airconditioned accommodation (and if you stay anywhere in asia it's nice to know that the airconditioners here are modern, effective and quiet and respond to your temperature inputs so not tooo freezing!), more traditional style ayuverdic treatments in a purpose built facility that can be as challenging as they are relaxing and daily yoga by a sensible, friendly and not too out there yogi by the beautiful pool area. Located a very short walk away from a typical small Sri Lankan town and a pretty but not swim safe beach. Villa Velmarie would be an ideal 3 or 4 day chill within a busy Sri Lankan tour schedule or a longer stand alone stay for someone (or a couple) seeking solitude and healing away from the usual traps of life.

My experience at Villa Velmarie was a fantastic one. I booked the all inclusive Ayurveda retreat. On the first day the Ayurveda specialist came up with a 7 day plan for me. In that plan he outlined a diet and massage plan for me to follow. Our mornings started with yoga and meditation followed by the Ayurveda massages. The meals were all authentic Ayurveda cuisine. We felt very energized and motivated. Highly recommended for any one looking for an energy boost and to reduce stress.

Great Villa and Ayurveda package. The team at Villa Velmarie offers a very relaxing package. I booked the seven day package and it was a treat. Stress level reduced completely. The vegetarian menu they serve is delicious. Yoga and ayurveda in the mornings, walks on the beach in the evening and great food. This place has it all.
