Aqua Dunhinda’ - A Retreat to Luxury, Tranquility and Culinary Indulgence Discover true luxury and tranquility when you stay at ‘Aqua Dunhinda’. A private Villa, nestled in a scenic tea garden over-looking the Kotmale Forest and the Mahaweli River. A distance of 120 Km from Colombo, the Villa offers its guests a chance to connect with nature and soak in the breathtaking views, participate in nature activities such as hikes, Yoga & meditation and enjoy the villa’s unique and traditional family recipes. Ideal for Yoga and meditation in nature, skillfully instructed by a renowned yogi and a monk, the guest can partake in a step by step process of self-rejuvenation and relaxation.
Welcome to our new retreat, a place to rejuvenate your senses. We are a Mom and Son partnership passionate about using the elements of nature to rejuvenate our body, mind and soul. We like to mediate, exercise including Yoga, horticulture and traditional and fusion style cooking. Our vision is to bring these elements in a majestic natural environment which is our home.
Built on a 3-acre property, the Villa sits on top of a cliff and nestled in a tea garden, providing a panoramic view of the forest, mountains and the river. The villa has been built on the philosophy of evoking the senses through climate, landscape and culture. Encapsulating this vision, the villa fully opens out to nature plus a wrap-around verandah. Guests have access to the full house and the entire property including the tea and spice garden. From the living, dining, observatory deck and Verandah you will be able to get a panoramic view of the beautiful Mahaweli River flowing through an amazing rock canapé and a spectacular view of the Kotmale (1000 + acres of conservation forest). The tranquil sounds of the flowing river and music of bird assail the senses throughout the day. It is the ideal venue for nature lovers seeking to obtain release from the stressful lifestyles they lead in the city. This magnificent natural environment is the ideal getaway for professionals and family looking to re-rejuvenate their senses. Outdoor activities include forest hike, bird watching, river bath, Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda massage and numerous other activities.
