Very selfish Host, it seems to be always an issue if the yoga teacher also runs a hotel business, yoga not very up to date the last decade developments, place is nice, location in general okay, the surrounding outside the resort is not too relaxing

Location: The hotel is located about 2 km south from the bigger tourist beach hikkaduwa with makes it a calm place but still gives you the possibility to easy walk or take a tuktuk down to the bars, beach and stores. The beach starts right in front of House of lotus door so you can easy take a swim alone... More

This is not a review written from staying at Lotus Garden, so maybe other people have different experiences of the stay, but this was our first impression of the host and her way of saying welcome to new comers and we have heard of other people saying the same. Its not the most welcome place when you haven't booked in... More

We are a yoga retreat a little haven of peace and quiet. for this reason, the main door is always closed to offer our guests this quiet and to give private atmosphere.

After a very long travel from the UK to hikkaduwa, I was definitely in need of some relaxation. Well what can I say...the House of Lotus delivered. The rooms are spacious and perfect for my starfish position when sleeping(obviously in preparation for my yoga) Food: faultless, I am not a picky eater, but I do love great food, and I... More

We wanted a break from the usual beach/hilltop stays so after reviewing a lot of hotels in Sri Lanka, we came across this retreat from TripAdvisor and it was the best vacation so far. This is not any conventional hotel but more of a home stay run by the couple. The website does not do any justice to describe the... More

Positives: nice building, intense Yoga, great rooms and pool, delicious vegetarian food. Negatives: prices for all additonal charges (drinks, massages, transfers) are way too high, traffic noise from highway and train, inconsistent application of concept, if you are not fully aligned to the owners concept, your stay will be difficult and this requirement is not communicated on their webpage.

The House of Lotus provides absolute peace, quiet and tranquility - it feels less like a hotel and more like a luxury private villa. The pool is stunning - cool and clean - and the grounds are immaculate. The location of House of Lotus is perfect: situated between the busy local town of Hikkaduwa and the beautiful tourist area of... More

The House of Lotus is an incredible oasis of calm in the thriving west-coast of Sri Lanka. Their website doesn't do this resort justice at all. On arriving, we were blown away by the beauty and calm tranquility of the accommodation and grounds. The yoga instruction is first-rate and the food is unbelievably tasty; the owner, Cornelia, goes to the... More
