The park-like garden is studded with a variety of national plants, like coconut palms, mango, teak, ebony and balsa trees, next to other smaller or larger blossoming plants and herbs.
At the riverside, mangroves are home to all different kinds of birds. The outdoor pool is located in the center of the garden.
One specific sector in it is devoted to meditation and quietude. This is the area around the exquisite „Bodhi tree“, also called poplar fig or „Ficus religiosa“. This tree is holy to Buddhists because such a one, 2.500 years ago, was the site of Siddharta Gautama’s Enlightenment, that made him a „Buddha“.
Hopefully, you can also feel the energy and clarity hovering at this spot, under this tree. In any case, you can detach from your worries and troubles there, and you can use the area for meditation or spiritual rituals.

How we began
May we offer a warm welcome to you! - Lahiru, from Sri Lanka, and Birgit, from Germany, the co-founders of Amandro Villa.
In 2014, the idea to establish a small, exclusive Ayurveda hotel began to take shape.
Based on our unique combination of „West“ and „East“, the plans gradually blossomed and Amandro Villa Nature Resort began to evolve.
Birgit, a qualified biologist, and homeopathic practitioner, invested her knowledge of Western science and experience in practical work as a therapist.
This paired up with Lahiru’s skills as an Ayurveda therapist, and tourist guide, brought up and immersed in the philosophy of Theravada Buddhism and well versed in Western culture through intensive contacts and travels in Europe, especially in Germany.
Suitable grounds had soon been found, an untouched stretch of riverside land thick in mangroves and rich in birds and animals. We cultivated the land – but took pains to keep the fauna! – with a lot of effort until, finally, the construction of the main building, the outlying houses and the pool could begin.
We have tried to put into reality our dream to create an ambiance both cultivated and functional. Our spacious, beautiful rooms are proof to our ideal.
After completion in 2015, we opened our establishment to our guests in 2016.
Since then, we have had the pleasure to welcome many residents from Germany, other German-speaking countries and a diversity of other nations.
