We are committed to giving our guests an honest, result-oriented Ayurveda cure – no “mysticism”; no “bits and pieces” of panchakarma; no “maybes”. Our cure is comprehensive, effectively managed by qualified, experienced medical staff and includes such treatments as authentic basti*, virechana* (preceded by snehanam and oil / steam) and when necessary, vamana*, shiro-basti* and khati-basti* (*see glossary of terms).
As part of our commitment to honesty and transparency in the field of Panchakarma, we are the only Sri Lankan Ayurveda hotel to openly publish a treatment schedule, detailing both the variety and number of treatments given in a “typical” Intensive Cure programme. This includes treatments from the 3 stages of Purvakarma, Pradhanakarma, Pashatakarma as well as special treatments, wellness treatments and doctor’s consultations.
Our superb location. The Talalle beach is one of the very few along this coast which is beach boy / seller / beggar free. Ideal for swimming during the European Winter, this picturesque bay is bounded by lush coconut palms and provides absolute beach frontage for our resort.
We were the first purpose-built beach resort to cater exclusively for Ayurveda Panchakarma cure guests. We don’t accept holiday tourists and remain smoke and alcohol free. The entire atmosphere is relaxed, quiet, an oasis of peace for those seeking physical and mental well-being.
Our doctors are all university graduates who have been trained in the Surya Lanka system. They, as well as our therapists, have also reaped the benefits of the training given by two well respected Ayurveda specialists from India. These doctors introduced better, more comprehensive methods of administering nasya, virechena etc as well as organizing the correct sequence of our medical treatments. Our doctors are caring, responsive to guests needs and wishes and always have time to listen.
