The Place

The Place

Pure Relaxation in a lush Sri Lankan Tea Plantation surrounded by Tropical Forest

Niyagama House is situated on the highest point of an active tea plantation. It was created by its owners and opened its doors in December 2012.

The location is just nine kilometers inland from the coastal city of Galle, the historic, charming Galle Fort and the Indian Ocean, which all can be reached with a 20 minute tuktuk drive.  

 

The distance to the airport of Colombo is 130 km, which is just a 1.5-hour drive from door to door.

Enjoy the Double Impact of a tranquil Boutique Hotel and an energizing Yoga Retreat

With just eleven rooms and suites and plenty of space to relax,  you will always love the undisturbed tranquility of the place.

 

For a healthy flow of energy the rules of the Sri Lankan ‘Feng Shui’ were followed. A tradition still respected by many people.

Wake up with the first rays of sunshine and do some Hatha yoga or sleep longer and start your day with our big and tasty breakfast.

The choice is all yours.

The Rooms & Suites

Rooms & Suites

An intimate and private Atmosphere – for up to 25 Guests

You will find five generous rooms and three spacious suites in the Main House. In the new Yoga house, built in 2020, are three additional rooms on the top fl, right next to the big yoga shala.

 

All rooms and suites offer air conditioning and a ceiling fan, high quality furniture, luxurious bathrooms, and wonderful views into nature – most of them with a private balcony.

 

The combination of traditional Sri Lankan design with convenient, modern elements makes Niyagama House a place to unwind in style.

We take care of you – from the first Cup of Tea to the Evening Turndown Service.

Start into the new day “the Sri Lankan Way” – with a cup of tea.

Our waiter is serving it to you in your room before breakfast and it is always “on the house”. Obviously, it also can be coffee or healthy ginger water.

Choose a different kind of cushion, request an additional bedsheet or duvet, and hand over your laundry – we make sure, that you feel amazing in your “home away from home”.

The Place

Paradise
Finally I found this wonderful place where I could really come to rest. The daily yoga classes with Elke were wonderful and I learned a lot.
The rooms are beautiful and equipped with everything your heart desires. Every day the staff made them new even in the evening and it smelled very fresh. The massages were great and relaxing. All the staff were very attentive, friendly and professional. I had a wonderful time and will be back :) Thank you Elke!

The Rooms

We loved the rooms, simple but elegant, thoughtfully designed. The views are great, the common spaces are lovely.

 

There is tremendous attention to detail.

From a happy Day Guest

Niyagama house is a wonderful experience. First of all the colonial-style house situated on top of a hill -- such a quaint beautiful location! And even more so when you swim in their big infinity pool which stretches into a quiet valley full of bushes, trees and all kinds of birds! They come to drink and swim here. Which indeed makes the place kind of a paradise for nature and bird lovers.
