    An award winning holistic wellness retreat, located in the heart of the cultural triangle of Sri Lanka - Sigirya. In the outskirts of a small village surrounded by the jungle, we are trying to change the trend of tourism by placing nature and community at the forefront to benefit the community and environment.
    We have created a sustainable. eco-friendly living sancatuary and we need your help to continuously improve it.

    We are home to 150 speices of birds, and the smallest primate in Sri Lanka - the slender loris.
    We try to be as eco-friendly as possible, most of the produce is sourced from our organic garden and water is recycled.

    We are looking for volunteers that share the same values as us; friendly, proactive, open minded, flexible and would love to stay in the jungle. (non smokers).

    We basically want fun people who can thing out of the box and have a positve impact on the retreat and the community.

    We have 10 guest rooms over 7 acres to give the guests enough of space and privacy to enjoy the jungle. We have 12 full time staff, majority of them are ladies from the village who goes back at 5pm and the rest are very trust worthy and reliable males who stays in the Retreat. We have 6 gardeners, the front officer, house keepers, Maintenance person and two waiting staff. The owner who is female sometimes stays in the Retreat as well. We will be getting a Spanish Manageress from January.

    We have a marketing person and would like more help with our social media promotions and to help to improve our eco projects.
