It's been a while :-))) that I did post here. One reason was that we had a fantastic peak season with many wonderful guests and many great yoga sessions :-). The other reason is that I am working on our brand new website, including our brand new blog inside of this website :-).

Still I don't want to miss to add the message I just posted on Instagram. You can read the wonderful review from Anna about her stay with us in June more conveniently here:












Hopefully the next news info about us with be posted on the super new website :-).

World Environment Day, 5 June 2018: 

Niyagama House is not offering plastic water bottles and plastic straws to their guests. Old rice and chilli bags have been modified into our big shopping bags.

And we constantly are looking for new ideas, planning right now a community school program to teach the small kids.







Inspiration website: and 

May Mother Earth be happy, healthy and free > from single use plastic.

Namaste from the tea plantation, Elke

July - time fo harvest the juicy and healthy Rambutan fruit, a 'sister' of the better known lychee.

Harvested in our organic garden as well as from all the trees, growing also in the tea plantation.

Harvested not only by us, but also by our friends, the monkeys and many birds :-).

A healthy and tasty treat, picked fresh from the tree... how wonderful is that?

Come next July and do it yourself :-).





5th of June 2017

It's again cinnamon harvest in the NIyagama plantation. Four men staying almost six weeks here in order to do this special work:

cutting the branches, peeling the outer layer in order to reach the layer below, which is the cinnamon that you will find in the shop after it was dried, packed, brought to the cinnamon collection place and from the to the companies.


Come and try our delicious potato curry with a little twist of cinnamon inside ;-). Yummy!
