Villa De Zoysa

Your Home with a History

Wake up in this beautiful colonial mansion to soft sunlight filtering through your shuttered windows. Open your heart in a morning class by the poolside yoga shala, nourish your body with a dazzling array of homemade Sri Lankan dishes and rediscover your center with an evening yoga class on the beach as the sun sets. Villa de Zoysa is simply a kindred abode that will awaken your soul, your spirit and your senses. There is history and heart wrapped into the bones of this home and into the spirit of its owner. Time spent on the grounds of Villa de Zoysa — resting in a hammock, curling up with a book on one of the expansive terraces, or sipping freshly brewed tea in an open courtyard — is deliciously restorative. Step onto the green grasses of the villa, and step into peace.

Yoga holidays and wellness treatments in Sri Lanka.

We like to say we run yoga holidays, as retreats sound a bit too serious and structured. We have only 2 yoga classes a day. 7.30 to 9.00 AM and 5 to 6.30 pm with Sunday being the off day. Between the classes, on a typical day, you have enough free time to indulge in surfing, snorkeling, diving, visiting UN heritage site of timeless Galle-Fort, a tea plantation, an isolated Buddhist temple, cycling in the village and even having a fabulous in-house deep tissue massage.
