Unique yoga and ayurveda centre in the middle of the forest Unique centre located 1hr drive from Kandy. The pavilions are amazingly decorated. The dining room is so cosy, you are surrounded by the forest. We loved reconnecting with our mind and soul (there is no wifi, phones in the rooms),doing the ayurveda treatment.

    Yumi Jayasinghe, wife of Waruna the owner of Samadhi, brings the Japanese element into Samadhi. Originally a Cartoonist in Tokyo, she has taught hatha Yoga since 2005. Yumi choreographs dance for children at a local International school. She brings a creative impact to enliven any session for beginner or experienced yogi.


Your yoga vacation will be held at The Kandy Samadhi Centre in Sri Lanka. Located on an abandoned tea plantation on the edge of the Dumbara Valley and away from the hustle and bustle of the busy roads, The Kandy Samadhi Centre is a beautiful and tranquil retreat that will compel you to relax and contemplate what is important in life.

At Samadhi, you will have a perfect opportunity to let nothing interrupt the sounds of forest birdsong, tree frogs, crickets, and the whisper of the breeze from the trees.

Set on the hillside of lush vegetation, Samadhi is a retreat where you can experience complete relaxation with yoga and Meditation as well as enjoy nature's wonders - birds singing, fireflies dancing, the soft murmur of the river and swimming in the waterfall.

  • Satiate your palate with the vegetarian meal for breakfast.
  • Daily yoga and meditation session.
  • Delicious Sri Lankan lunch will be provided in the center.
  • Free time will also be provided for meditation and yoga practices.
  • Enjoy fresh local produce dinner, which can be enjoyed with the candle light and under the starts in the open air restaurant.

Inside the entrance hall at Samadhi you are watched over by a silk tapestry depicting seven Buddhist monks each holding a lotus blossom in their hand. Each monk is a different shade of brown. Likewise, the cultural diversity of this island is reflected in the villagers, who form the core of what makes Samadhi run smoothly. They are unspoiled and courteous - every man, woman or boy will calmly break from sweeping the stone pathway, lighting the oil lamp or picking fresh produce for your lunch to wish you Ayubowan! the traditional Sinhala welcome which means Let there be long life!

The inspiration for the design and architecture was born of meditation. And so you willingly leave your city husk behind at the gate with no signal for mobile phones, it is the perfect opportunity to let nothing interrupt the sounds of forest birdsong, of tree frogs and crickets, and the whisper of the breeze from the trees.

The thirteen pavilions, which lean out of the hillside, are veritable temples of tranquility. They are designed to make you feel you are the only person staying here. Privacy is everything. Yet there are no unnecessary walls. This results in a truly serene environment surrounded by urns, art and treasures dating back to a time Kandy was a royal realm. There, everything is king-sized. The Indonesian teak bed in a double room is spacious enough to sleep three people comfortably. But even the smallest suite provides a four-poster bed to dream in.

The spacious verandahs of each suite of rooms give onto paddy fields, nearby mountains and bench terraces filled with herb gardens or pineapples. Bamboos reach out with their four-fingered leaves to fan a breeze at you. In the surrounding natural forest, mango, toddy palm, mahogany and jak trees rub necks with giant bamboo, avocado and Chinese guava

We maintain Organic garden to Produce Healthy Legumes and vegetables.  We provide organic Sri Lankan foods made in fire wood heat and all these vegetables are taken our own garden where we use only natural fertilizer when growing vegetables.

We can Provide Vegetarian foods.

This is a great retreat for anyone looking to take a break from hectic modern life. Yoga lessons were perfect for an absolute beginner or intermediate and were held in a truly serene setting. The entire setup at Samadhi encourages you to slow down, experience nature and just chill. Staff are friendly and easygoing, the rooms rustic but beautifully fitted out with an eclectic mix of antiques. Owner Waruna is fascinating to talk with if you get the chance. You won't regret coming.
