About Us

Love Is The Foundation Of Our Home

Although Michael fell in love within 30 seconds, it took Tush 6 months to acknowledge their connection... they have been in love ever since.


“Welikande Estate is the ideal place for our guests to retreat. It is such a peaceful sanctuary for those seeking to make a beginning with a holistic lifestyle, through the practice of yoga and wellness   treatments".


Tush’s grandfather was an Ayurvedic doctor, so she grew up within a family where this knowledge was inherited.

Come and stay with us, you will leave more joyful and have a greater connection with yourself…

My 7-day stay at Welikande was absolutely amazing. It started with warm welcome from Michael and his wife Tush and the rest just build on it. Location is exceptional, nice and clean rooms with all you need, practicing yoga at yoga shala with mind blowing view while listening to singing of birds is so relaxing experience.

Welikande is one of those places that feel like home from the second you arrive. From the delicious home cooked food, yoga / meditation twice daily, and the fantastic experiences/excursions massage, pottery, waterfalls! All you need to do, is turn up and the rest is taken care of. Can’t wait to go back!

Arriving at Welikande is like reaching the top of the world. Mountains and lakes as far as the eye can see.. no photo will ever come close. The property is gorgeous as are the lovely hosts whose hearts and souls are poured into this paradise. The experiences on offer are totally unique. I spent 6 weeks in sri lanka and nothing came close to the unusual daily adventures we had.
