Fact Sheet



The Welikande Estate can be found 25 km from Kandy

It is nestled high up in the Knuckles Mountains, overlooking the Knuckles National park, Hiloya Valley, and Victoria Dam Lake

We specialize in retreats: yoga, meditation, trekking, and Ayurveda wellness programs

The Soul of our Estate is the main house where we all eat together on the large covered terrace overlooking the mountain range and our gardens.


We serve primarily vegetarian meals, for which the ingredients are sourced locally from the surrounding villages and from our own 12 acres of the vegetable garden, including our home-grown coffee. The food is Sri Lankan inspired with influences from the Mediterranean cuisine.


All the bedrooms are tastefully decorated, with a collection of beautiful paintings that add a touch of color and inspiration. Each room has an en-suite bathroom with solar heated water shower, toilet, and sink
