Things to do

There is plenty of things to do at and around Eraeliya Villas & Gardens. Next to the surf break in front of our garden, we offer a variety of activities like yoga, pilates and fitness classes. Visit our spa, join a culinary class, go snorkeling and many more…

Massages & Spa

We have a beautiful and secluded Spa Pavilion in our garden that invites you to relax in an luxurious environment. Our aroma treatments are designed to reduce stress, pain and muscle tension. We trust in the unique health benefits of high quality coconut oil. 

Try our “Tranquillity Aroma Massage” to relieve headaches and muscle pain. Or our magical “Revitalizing Body Scrub” that will leave you with glowing and flawless skin. We also offer a range of special treatments that are rarely found on the island like anti-cellulite massage, lymphatic drainage and many more


There are only a few places in the world that can brag about having their own surf break right in front of their door. And we have two: Jungle Beach is a unique reef spot with a sharp left wave, more suitable for intermediate to advanced surfers. And a long mellow right wave, for those who only recently discovered surfing. Sri Lanka’s south coast is known for its reliable swells coming in from October to April.

Wake up to the sound of the waves, take a look at the swell from our garden and then decide when it’s time to rip! Or simply have a nice cup of tea on our terrace while taking pictures of the surfers.

If you want to try surfing for the first time or improve your skills, we can arrange private surf lessons for you.

Yoga & Fitness

Flow right next to the ocean – our wooden Yoga deck is just a stone’s throw from the water and surrounded by big shady trees. Join one of our drop in classes to increase your flexibility and strength or take a private lesson for even more attention to your personal practice. 

Our very own fitness coach offers a variety workouts and Pilates classes. And she is always happy to answer questions and advise you regarding exercise and health topics

Culinary classes

Learn all the secrets about Sri Lanka’s signature dish – rice & curry. It may sound monotonous but, in fact, you will find several hundred varieties throughout the island. All of them are extremely tasty, healthy and prepared according to ancient recipes. Those are based on the ayurvedic principles of healthy eating. Our Chef will teach you everything you need to know about local herbs and spices. Become the star of your next dinner party, knowing how to prepare the perfect rice & curry.


Explore the wonderful underwater scenery at Jungle Beach – right in front of our ocean deck. The reef begins only a few meters away from the beach. You will typically see all kinds of colorful fish, crabs, moray eels, trigger fish, parrot fish and lobsters. And often a sea turtle will cross your way – they are regular guests at Jungle Beach. 

You don’t need a guide or to sign up for a tour. Just grab one of our free snorkeling gears, walk through the beach gate and dive right into the beautiful underwater world.
