Resorts and retreats become more and more popular. Not only in Asia (Thailand, Bali, Sri Lanka, India, …) they seem to be very in style, but also in Europe (Spain, Portugal, Italy,…) yoga, surf or ayurveda fans can find a happy place for their soul.
During my time in Sri Lanka I was lucky enough to attend such a retreat. Doing so at the end of my 17-days-of-travelling-Sri-Lanka, it has just been the perfect and best way to end my already incredible time on the beautiful island.
My amazing friend Sandra and her husband Jack found a great land in Sri Lanka during their travels and spontaneously decided to follow their dreams and hearts to open their very own vegan, yoga and surf retreat. And as if the universe wanted it to happen, their very first retreat would take place during the time I was travelling there – isn’t it sometimes crazy how life works? 🙂
Sandra and Jack chose a property close to the famous beach area Hikkaduwa on the south-west side of the island. Their villa The Earthlinks is located a little inward surrounded by rice fields, palm trees, jack fruit trees and jungles. Remote enough to be peacefully quiet, yet centered enough for it to be a walkable distance to the beach, I loved falling asleep to the sounds of wildlife and the wild ocean.
