The Lotus Villa sits under shady coconut palm trees on a long stretch of beach directly by the Indian Ocean in the, In the town of Ahungalla, South West of Sri Lanka. It was founded by Mr. Peter Huber, an Austrian, in 1982 as a private holiday house and a guest house with two rooms. Later, towards the end of 1980s, Lotus Villa was transformed and was registered as a hotel with twelve rooms and a restaurant which exclusively offered Austrian cuisine with Vienna Schnitzel, Kaiserschmarn and more. In 1992, Mr. Huber “discovered” Ayurveda. He was so inspired by the possibilities that Ayurveda provides for many health problems and therefore Lotus Villa started offering Ayurveda. Since 1994 Lotus Villa has exclusively been an Ayurveda – health resort. In 1997 Mr. Huber suffered two strokes in a very short time span. It was with Ayurveda that he was successfully treated. As the Ayurveda practiced here at Lotus Villa is of the highest standard and quality, in 1998 we were able to obtain the honour of becoming an Ayurvedic Hospital as a result of the quality of Ayurveda offered at Lotus Villa. Lotus Villa consists of 19 ground floor rooms, a restaurant and treatment rooms under the friendly yet profound management of Mrs. Huber and Mr. Sushan Huber, the only son of Mr. & Mrs. Huber. The higher management always conceptualizes to indulge valuable clients in authentic Ayurveda experience. Over the past 25 years with a great deal of commitment, the effort of all our employees and by providing high-quality treatment and individual care for our guests and patients, the Lotus Villa has in the last eleven years become one of the top Ayurveda Centers in Sri Lanka. Ayurveda practiced at Lotus Villa always focuses to treat the root cause of the disease rather than suppressing the symptoms. The commitment and the personalised service of our employees ensure the maximum relaxation of our clients during their vacation.

I like my stay in Lotus Vila resort in January 2020, it was nice and calm to stay, perfect for relaxation, good sleep, nice beach and ocean, very good and healthy food, ayurveda treatements, medicaments, perfect yoga each morning and tai chi and always always smilling stuff. I had got all I was expected and more, I met many new people who became my new friends from many parts of the world and I saw very nice places in Srilanka on the trips. Now I still feel full of energy and I still like the smile in my soul! Thank you everyone from Lotus Vila! You made my days perfect! 😁😁😁

For the 3rd time I spent two maximum relaxing weeks in the Lotus Villa. The medical team is competent and friendly, the treatments are very good and the food is excellent.The location is wonderful. A long beach invites you to go for a walk, fantastic sunsets.The rooms are very simple but clean and are made 2x a day. The Lotus Villa is not a luxury resort with an Ayurveda Spa, but a true "clinic under palm trees" where you can experience the true value of Ayurveda. I will be back!

I was there with a friend of mine for two weeks and I appreciated my stay. The staff is professional and very friendly. The treatments are intense and keep one busy the whole morning, in the afternoon you're free to hang in your room or in the garden - the first week you're anyway groggy and tired. As well you don't have to think about what treatment will take place because you're always searched by the staff at the very moment. A good method to relax and leave the responsibility of outer coordination. Be confident and let go. Yet it is a clinic and not a tourist hotel, so you better follow the instructions of the doctors - at your own interest to get the best profit of the treatment. I would return there anytime and enjoy.

I have been here twice beofore and this year I decided to visit Lotus Villa togethere with my wife. We stayied 2 weeks and we had a very good experience: staff very expert and professional offered us a relaxing ayurveda treatments. The Doctors ( ladies) very professional assisted us whenever we needed their help: very gentle and always available. Thank you! We came here mainly for loosing some kilos and at the end we happy with the result. Therefore we did not complain about the "dimension" of the food served for our meals! Anyway it is corrcet to make evidence about few things that this time I did not like too much: - the high percentage of german speaking persons ( 90%) made the duration of meals at table little bit boring... since we do not speak German - this time I stayed in one room were the privacy was very very very limited... - the sun loungers ( beds) definetly need to be replaced!!!! - the wi-fi system is always very much weak , as it was before.. Beside that everything was fine. We'll hope to be back again at Lotus Villa.

Came for insomnia treatment, and guess what? Got so much worse....maybe cause I got the worse room exist, mean all the rooms are facing garden or sea, I booked and paid for sea view, and got the only room facing massages rooms, to the south.no sea or garden. giving the fact no air conditioning, the room was boiling hot, couldn't sleep a second for 4 nights. Thin mattress, stone hard cushion, after 2 nights started to have horrible back pains, couldn't seat any more. Food was not bad, but contain mainly vegetables and rice. If serving fish or chicken, normally 3 pieces,one centimeter in size. Once they brought a box full of lovely fish to the kitchen, one of the guests was looking wishfully on them, but it was for the personal. Not for us. For dinner we got some more steamed vegetables ....drinks are only warm water or warm fruit juice or tea. the taste of ayuverdic medicine was horrible and so is the herbal juice you had to drink all the time. In short: this is an hospital in an exotic location. Do not expect any comfort or joy. If you speak German it's going to be easier since most guests are German speaking. It means also it will be boring too. Not fun people to be with. One thing more, run one night out to eat fish on the beach, about 500 meters to the north about 3 fish restaurants. someone recommended to take the one between directly on the beach near the fishing boats, was lovely view but fish simply not eatable. They haven't clean it, and was totaly uncooked inside. Probably they were thinking stupid tourists ,why to even try...so I hope that with this post I would save at least one tourist money, and teach a little lesson to the locals... About me, after 4 nights I run away from lotus villa and felt like breaking out of jail. Sleeping in normal hotel near city of Galle, hotel Long Beach, first night with a/c, soft cushion and mattress......could sleep the first night in Sri lanka. Lost a lots of money because lotus villa refused any refund, but for me it was the right thing to do.
