Venue Description

Ulpotha, referred to as “The best Yoga retreat in the world” by the Observer Magazine, is a beautiful private jungle hideaway open part of the year which has come to be known worldwide as an eco friendly, vegan Yoga retreat that offers Ayurveda. It is an enchanting place that sprinkles its magic dust on those who are lucky enough to simply ‘be’ in Ulpotha. In the winter and summer months internationally renowned yoga teachers lead holiday retreats at Ulpotha to help you get away from it all, and deeply nurture your mind, body and spirit. There is no aspiration in Ulpotha to be anything other than what it is – a lovely folly. The founders and villagers welcome you to enjoy Ulpotha in this spirit.

    “Soulfood at its best”
    5 of 5 stars Reviewed 19 April 2015 by Georg E on tripadvisor.com
    I actually came to Ulpotha because I had never seen as many reviewers use the word \”magic\”…now I know why.
    This Place has a very special energy. Full of good vibes and lots of soul and love.
    I came as complete yoga beginner and will definitely keep up the practice.
    Yoga teachers were great. Very good at explaining and conveying yoga spirit and philosophy without doing it in an \”aggressive\” way.
    Food is always fresh and delicious.
    I never missed electricity. Simply no need. And adds much to the charm.
    The accomodation is Amazing. Beautifully designed. Always clean despite being completely open and in the forest. You feel very close to nature. Only in a good sense.
    The massage therapies were impeccable. Following the same great spirit.
    The team is super friendly. And Suzie really is the good soul of Ulpotha.
    So helpful and understanding and patient Any time.
    A Major reason for me having such a wonderful time was definitely due to meeting wonderful and particularly nice, interesting and open-minded people.
    I could go on…i will come back.
    A magic place
    Thank you, Suzie!

    “An incomparable holiday”
    5 of 5 starsReviewed 26 April 2015 by Gry1985 on tripadvisor.com

    As a former travel journalist, I have travelled a lot, but no place ever changed me so much as Ulpotha:

    When I arrived, I was over-worked/borderline burned-out, sleep deprived and so white, it was actually more like I was see-through.

    When I left, I was super rested out and energetic as a 7 year old, stronger than I’ve ever been, tanned as a coconut and -quote my wonderful Ulpotha thai massage therapist – “had not a single tension in my body.

    Not to forget that I also swam every morning and evening in the lake, were surrounded by more animals than in a Disney movie, massively improved my yoga skills, found the love of my life and met amazing people I am sure will both change my life and stay my friends forever.

    Oh yeah, and the food is heavenly. Im still dreaming of the hoppers and the eggplant- and garlic curries and the red rice and the cocoanut balls and everything else I stuffed myself with constantly. Quite a miracle that I actually still lost weight, but I guess that just proves that it’s true what the Ulpotha-people say: It might all be out of this world tasty, but surprisingly enough, it’s still extremely healthy.


    It was a blast. I’ll be back for sure.

    “Can\’t wait to go back”
    5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2015 by dogwalker2011 on tripadvisor.com
    I\’m always a bit reluctant to review Ulpotha because it\’s one of those magical places in the world that you want to keep returning to time and again. So I guess if too many people feel the same way I might not get a hut the next time. I feel so blessed in my life to have found Ulpotha – a yoga village in the jungle which is run to the most ethical and highest standards. The Ayurveda centre is bliss with the most caring and wonderful therapists. The massage therapists are also world class. There is no mobile phone coverage except by the lake, there is no wifi coverage – so you really do get a chance to chill. It\’s a bit strange at first, slowing down and then you realize that slowing down could be normal. There is no electricity and torches light your magical way back to your hut at night. You sleep at sundown and wake up at sunrise. The food is excellent and grown locally – all the dishes are vegetarian. We eat communally, getting to know each and having inspired conversations, or not. The choice is yours – to swim in the lake or not. Do a yoga class or not. The last time I was there the yoga teacher was James and he was truly one of the best teachers, ever. So I\’m going back – back for some more yoga with James, back to my jungle village with those smiling happy faces ready to greet you. I am now ticking off the months, then the days, then the hours.
