June - July 2017, Kumara Luxury Villa brings two talented Australian artists to Sri Lanka to begin "Kumara Villa Art Retreats" annual event. Our journey began with a mutual love for discovering the creative genius that dwells inside us all.  


Heart warming and humbling, blessed with un-spoilt beaches and pristine forests it is in fact the gentle, polite and friendly nature of the people that makes Sri Lanka such a memorable destination.

Two of Australia’s talented artists, David Hinchliffe  and Jacinda Bayne come to Sri Lanka to lead their own inspirational artistic journey. 

Participants will have the opportunity to watch the sunrise and set over the majestic Indian ocean and Lakshadweep Sea. Enjoy morning walks through local villages and temples stopping along the way to photograph or  sketch, be inspired by traditional rice-paddy countryside and the quaintest of fishing villages.

Accommodation is just a few minutes along the coast in spectacular Weligama Bay beach, within easy reach of Kumara Villa.
