I love the Earthlinks vibes! Sandra and Jack made my stay at The Earthlinks feel incredibly warm and homely <3. They also really understand the power of good food & I got to share some amazing meals with them. As a vegan it was great to find a place where vegan food is celebrated in such an amazing way! During the low season they also organize Vegan Supper Clubs where Sandra will find her way to your heart through her crazy talents as a vegan chef. When you're there definitely say hi to their cute dog 'Moody' and ask them for tips about the area, which they know very well.

I can’t even put it into words how magical my time in Sri Lanka has been..
I’m beyond thankful for all the incredible experiences and memories I got to collect and the amazing people I met along the way. Sri Lanka definitely has a special place in my heart. 

I absolutely loved my retreat stay at the beautiful villa of the Earthlinks.
Its location is off the busy main road, somewhat in the jungle, yet close to the beautiful Hikkaduwa beach. The distance to the beach is easily walkable, and at night the ocean can be heard. I booked the 6 day retreat and enjoyed the variety of activities (yoga, surfing, massage, museum, turtle farm, movie nights...) each day included. I loved that the food is 100% vegan and freshly prepared & cooked for each meal. (One can taste the joy of cooking that Sandra puts into her delicious food) From the second I arrived I felt at home and very welcome. Thanks to Jack and Sandra for being amazing hosts and making this a great stay and my trip end the perfect way! Hope to see you soon again.. ✨☀️

We truly loved our stay here! Sandra and Jack are awesome hosts and even better people, helping us with our every need and going above and beyond to guarantee a beautiful hikkaduwa experience. 

Once we had booked, they were super fast and helpful to organise getting us from the train station to their slice of paradise. 

Their villa is rustic and spacious with countless trees and animals, as well as a fantastic outdoor dining/yoga area so we really got the connection to nature we were searching for. 

We had a great morning yoga session with their local instructor who pushed us to our limits in the best way possible. 

S and J also took us inland to a stunning waterfall and swimming hole followed by delicious meal. The journey there and back was idyllic in the tuk tuk which was very good value for money as it was one of their local friends who drove us. 

Their contacts all over the place allow you to embrace the country and culture which is what it’s really all about. I could keep going on and on about the magical experiences we enjoyed but you just have to come and see it all for yourself!

There is one word to describe our experience at this amazing retreat: PARADISE!! Sandra and Jacek were welcoming and accommodating to all our needs and showed us around Hikkaduwa like proper locals. They went above and beyond to ensure we have an amazing time and organised a scooter to get around, visits at unique places, an amazing yoga session with a local instructor, movie nights, amazing food and more.. All of this with a passion and care that is just contagious. They're villa is a gemstone stone itself and we ended up extending our stay because it was so hard to say goodbye to what felt like a home away from home.. actually it's like a better version. 
I can not wait to return and see how their retreat has evolved and how Sandra and Jacek have managed to create an even better piece of paradise on earth (technically it's not possible, but these two know what they're doing) 
Peace and Love Sandra and Jacek, I'm going to miss your place for sure until next time
