Mamma Shanti

The Shanti Life

Mamma Shanti is more than a guesthouse and yoga space, it’s a conscious way of life. We offer a place in nature for people to reset and reconnect, to unplug from technology and tap into their inner selves. This is a space for healing, for creativity, for exploration and restoration. We advocate a slower paced life, leaving your shoes and concerns at the door, eating with your hands and drinking in the simple goodness of Mother Earth.



From forest walks to mountain meanders, secret waterfalls and undiscovered trails… sense satiating yoga and delectable Sri Lankan bounty… Mamma Shanti is a soulful serving of nature at her best.

Yoga & Meditation

Bow to the break of day and salute the sunset from our rooftop shala – a sacred space to heal, connect, awaken. Guide your own practice or request a private session from our trained resident teacher.

Join a group meditation or conscious workshop; and discover the secluded meditation stations spotted across the garden and hidden deep within the forest.

Hiking & Outdoors

Situated 40 minutes from Ella, our house in the hills is the base camp for beautiful mountain tracks and undiscovered waterfall walks. Wind your way through our wild banana plantation to the Bodhi tree at the bottom of the garden and follow the stream into a dreamworld of wide open vistas, magical forest paths and welcoming villagers hidden deep in the jungle. Take a tuk-tuk or hike by foot into Ella to tackle well-known tracks such as Ella Rock, Little Adam’s Peak and Nine Arches Bridge.
