"It is luxuriously posh, this lantern-lit retreat in the woods, and peaceful beyond expectation" - Huff Post

Please scroll down to see our upcoming Calendar of Holidays.

Ulpotha is only open for half the year, generally between November to March and June to August. The rest of the year Ulpotha reverts to its primary role as a traditional rice growing village.

During the times Ulpotha is open, holidays are arranged fortnightly with a different yoga teacher for each holiday. For more detailed information on each Yoga teacher or Therapist and their particular discipline and style please click on their name in the Calendar of Holidays below.

Prices below are per person per holiday programme (usually 2 weeks) and include accommodation on a sharing basis, all meals, snacks, drinks, two Yoga classes a day, a one-on-one consultation with our resident Ayurveda doctor, one excursion per week to one of the nearby cultural heritage sites or the beach, a one hour massage per week, laundry service, taxes and the use of bicycles. Since gracious and priceless hospitality is what Ulpotha offers, tipping is not accepted and there are no additional service charges.

Not included are travel costs to and from Ulpotha, insurance, Ayurveda treatments, entrance fees to cultural sites, outside meals, or any additional massages guests may wish to book with the respective therapists. These can be arranged with the therapist subject to availability at US $80 per hour. It is our experience that, in order to benefit fully from what Ulpotha has to offer, you visit for a full two weeks. Unless you wish to take advantage of the longer Ayurveda programmes, we recommend you arrange your holiday to coincide with the dates of one of the retreat programmes below to get the full benefit of the visit of that particular yoga teacher.

Please note the period over Christmas and New Year is a time for celebration at Ulpotha. For those of you looking for a quiet holiday, we suggest you avoid this period.
