Smith private pool at Kalundewa Sri Lanka

Kalundewa Retreat

Ideal For


Kalundewa Retreat is an idyllic hide-away nestled in 100 acres of land near Dambulla, in Sri Lanka’s famous Cultural Triangle.

The area is rural and remote: a tapestry of orchards, lakes and mountains, enabling you to fill your senses with matchless views and a whole different lifestyle.  Enjoy wide open spaces, wildlife, a natural spring, a lake and a thriving vegetable garden that is an essential part of the retreat.

The retreat in itself is also a form of sustenance to a rural village and its farming community. It’s truly a haven for those seeking to commune.  There’s even a resident yogi for yoga and meditation classes on a special platform amid the rice fields, in sight of a small waterfall.

Guests at Kalundewa Retreat can borrow the hotel’s bicycles, paddle boats and canoes without charge.  However, there is a charge for yoga and meditation.

Of course, one of the key reasons for staying here is proximity to the ancient wonders of the Cultural Triangle and we will gladly tailor-make your holiday to include all the best sites.

Activities at Kalundewa Retreat include:

Cultural excursions
Swimming pool
Yoga & Meditation platform


The accommodation is light, airy and spacious with open sides and huge glass windows that let’s the outside in.  Accommodation is spread across three buildings: the first sits in the paddocks, housing three entry-level rooms; the second and third buildings are over-water, set in the wetlands and shrouded by a canopy of trees. One building holds two bedrooms, the other holds just one.  Kumbuk Chalet is the most private option and has its own over-water plunge pool.
