We welcome you to our Ayurveda Guesthouse & Resort Bogenvillya. It is located 80 km south of Colombo on the west coast of Sri Lanka on the Ahungalla Beach, and is harmoniously nestled in the coastal landscape in close proximity to the fishing village Ahungalla.
In the middle of a generously landscaped garden with a lagoon, palm trees, small fish ponds, lush tropical vegetation and a swimming pool, as well as direct access to the sandy beach, the Bogenvillya combines recreation in a family atmosphere with the amenities of a comfortable resort.
During your stay, we will look after your physical and emotional well-being with an individual range of Ayurveda treatments, yoga lessons and balanced, predominantly vegetarian cuisine. Our Ayurveda physician, our trained Ayurveda therapists, and our friendly, experienced staff ensure that you will always feel completely at home with us.
- Location & Excursions
Sri Lanka, where the epic of Ramayana is said to have taken place, still today exudes a certain mysticism. Here, on the island’s southwest coast, visitors can instantly recognise why this island is called “the pearl in the Indian Ocean”: The Ayurveda Guesthouse & Resort Bogenvillya is located in the midst of mangroves and palm trees near an original fishing village on the kilometre-long sandy beach of Ahungalla. Surrounded by numerous temples, the location offers an exceptional cultural and nature experience. Ahungalla is an ideal starting point to explore the centuries-old history of the island and its many different cultural as well as religious influences. The railway, built during the colonial era, traverses the rain forest and leads directly from the capital Colombo to Kandy, where Buddha’s tooth – the holiest relic of Buddhism – is preserved.
- Getting Here
After arriving at Bandaranaike Airport north of Colombo, you will be met by our driver and chauffeured to the Ayurveda Guesthouse & Resort Bogenvillya. The drive takes almost two hours, partly through the capital Colombo as well as along the west coast.
In addition to numerous flight connections with intermediate stops, such as in Dubai or Doha, there are now non-stop flights to Colombo from many European cities, which will shorten your travel time.

- Climate & Travel Period
Ahungalla is located in the area influenced by the southwest monsoon, which brings moisture from the Indian Ocean between the middle of May and October. According to travel reports, the ideal period to travel to the southwest coast is therefore between November and April. During this time, the sea is calmer and there is usually little rainfall.
Due to the year-round warm temperatures, however, more and more guests prefer the off season for an Ayurvedic cure. In the off season, they will enjoy a special tranquility and the lush flora that blossoms through the varied, always warm weather.
