Ulpotha

Authentic, and beyond cool.

Ulpotha is a traditional agricultural community in the jungle heartland of Sri Lanka, offering guests world class yoga in an incomparably beautiful setting as close to nature as is humanly possible.

Ulpotha is talked about in revered tones as one of the most extraordinary yoga destinations in the world” – The Guardian


Our Story

The Economic Situation in Sri Lanka

Though there has been some international coverage of shortages of power, fuel and food stuff in the island, we would like to assure guests that Ulpotha is hardly if at all affected by any of these given its self sustaining nature. Moreover, a visit to Sri Lanka and to Ulpotha is as effective a way of supporting the country and its people as any available.


Covid-19 in Sri Lanka

For overseas guests – a warm welcome back! 

Sri Lanka has significantly relaxed entry requirements to the island. Please refer to the Sri Lanka Tourism site that can be found here for the latest guidelines.

For guests living in Sri Lanka

Ulpotha will continue to relax our usual minimum stay requirement while offering attractively reduced local rates to fully vaccinated guests living on the island.

Please contact Pri at bookings@ulpotha.com for further details and booking enquiries.
