‘Sri Devi Retreat’ in south Sri Lanka is available for hire!

Are you a teacher, instructor or someone looking to hire a 5 star venue for Retreats, Teacher training courses, Workshops, Celebrations or Events?

‘Sri Devi Retreat’ is a total gem hidden away amongst the paddy fields and just a 15 minutes walk to the southern coastline, near Galle.


The Retreat

There are 7 villa-suites on the property. Each villa has a 5* spacious accommodation with a huge balcony.

There is a large wooden floored outdoor covered yoga platform with natural beauty and nature sounds surrounding.

Yoga mats, blocks, straps and bolsters are provided.

There is an Ayurvedic spa and a 60 feet pool on the 2.5 acres of land.

Booking Details

  • As a teacher or organiser, it can be quite a risk and an initial cost to hire the whole venue before you have confirmed the guests. 

  • At Sri Devi Retreat, we don’t demand the payment of the whole venue, but just with a few guests and the retreat/event can run. 

  • Your own villa is provided free of charge for the teacher once you have just 4 paying guests.

  • This means that you only pay for the guests you have, so even a small group booking allows an instructor to run a retreat and make it cost effective.

  • Simply start your promotions and you only pay a non-refundable deposit of £300 to reserve your week. 

  • Booking are usually made from Saturday to Saturday with a 1 week free between groups, so your guests can come a few days earlier or want to stay a few days longer if they wish.

What our clients say

Perhaps we are the first couple to honeymoon on one of your retreats Ali? We have enjoyed every minute here, the surroundings; tropical, full of wildlife, the simple luxury and the sights and sounds exceeded our expectations and have complimented your calm, patient and knowledgeable teachings. We feel grounded, relaxed and have extra tools to help us in our daily lives when we return to the UK. Thank you for your teaching and we hope to see you again in the future so we can carry on learning.

What a wonderful and peaceful retreat, nestled in the sights and sounds of nature. Really enjoyed Ali’s poems, mindfulness and the moment to moment awareness aspects of the yoga. Felt really open, relaxed and great being at the retreat. Thank you so much.

Thank you so much Ali for a wonderful week. The location and space is almost indescribable! Words don’t seem to do it justice... All the elements of the retreat come together perfectly; the peaceful location, the care that is taken by the staff to ensure we are well looked after, and the practice, so gentle and restorative. I feel like I am ready to take on the world again after this week. One surprising element I will take away is to re visit my love for poetry from my childhood – I absolutely loved your poems you chose. Thanks again and hopefully we meet again at a retreat or workshop in the future.
