Satori – retreat to the heart of paradise.

High on a hill, overlooking the lush contours and soft sand beaches of Southern Sri Lanka, Satori Retreat offers a gentle and inspiring natural environment in which to find your centre.

Whether you’re coming to lead a retreat - or to enjoy one - Satori is the perfect space to unwind, uplift and inspire.

Our beautiful sanctuary at the jungle’s edge offers tranquility, natural energy and excellent facilities. Three luxurious villas in frangipani-perfumed gardens offer peace and privacy, as well as plenty of room for group activity.

The Satori space can be configured to suit any programme, using our open-sided Coach House room as a cinema room, classroom or communal dining room. Food is vibrant, local and full of life - we cater for all programmes including raw and juice cleanses, all enhanced by homegrown food from our organic vegetable garden.

At the land’s highest point we have a yoga sala for 15 students overlooking the paddy fields and out to the ocean, and a massage pavilion with traditional Ayurvedic massage table. And to compliment the healing space, retreat guests also have full use of a steam room, infrared sauna, and cool infinity pool during their stay.

Satori’s most precious gift though is its unique energy - we created it as a home-from-home, and this is reflected in the attention to detail, the warmth and grace of our staff and the quiet beauty that permeates it throughout.

Rich in spirit and sensory pleasures, Satori is quite simply a retreat to paradise.
