Since opening in 1995, Surya Lanka has been famed for its comprehensive, classical panchakarma cure, legendary care and generous hospitality.
Located directly on the beach, the resort is surrounded by a large tropical garden and has a very peaceful atmosphere which is essential for a successful Ayurveda Cure and a perfect place to relax in between treatments.
Their Panchakarma programme was designed with the input of two of India’s most prominent Ayurveda physicians - Professor Asok and Doctor Athul Thombare - 21 years ago and has remained true to its principles in the years since. Their staff are highly experienced with most having been at the resort for over 10 years. Surya is also a relatively small resort which allows for a more personal atmosphere where guests are able to experience a highly individualised cure.
At Surya, guests are offered 10 lessons of yoga per week, which always ends with meditation. As well as yoga, guests can also enjoy various other complementary activities during their stay including cooking demonstrations and weekly excursions to local sights of historical and cultural importance.
Surya generally recommends a minimum of 13 cure days in order for all treatments to be administered fully and effectively. If possible, heil cure guests should allow for a longer stay.
Please note: The property will be closed for minor renovations between 01 - 30 Jun 2024. The New Wing will be closed between 30 Jun - 15 Jul 2024

At Surya Lanka they consider the diet to be an important feature of the detoxification process and as such foods which aid the cleansing process are emphasised (such as fresh fruit and vegetables, herbs and mild spices) and those which hinder the process are minimised (such as processed and refined foods, dairy products and highly spiced foods).
Each guest’s diet is regularly monitored by the Doctors to ensure that every guest adheres to foods according to the stage of their cure and/or specific medical conditions that they may have. Food is served buffet style and consists of fresh fruit juices, delicate soups and an array of Sri Lankan curries using a wide selection of mildly spiced/herbed vegetables and pulses. Non-vegetarian dishes are also available on request and after consultation with a Doctor.
