Experience Ayurveda And Yoga At Our Top Sri Lankan Wellness Retreats And Spas

In recent years, this teardrop-shaped island nestled off the southeastern coast of India has blossomed into a haven for travellers seeking memorable experiences. Dubbed the "pearl of the Indian Ocean," Sri Lanka has garnered recognition for its beaches, rich heritage, ancient ruins, wildlife, and welcoming locals.  

Yet, what has particularly piqued the interest of wellness enthusiasts is its reputation as a prime destination for exceptional Ayurveda practices, invigorating Yoga sessions, and a more understated take on wellness.  

The captivating allure of Sri Lanka lies not only in its palm-fringed beaches and lush landscapes but also in its centuries-old practices that promote holistic well-being. The island's wellness offerings are deeply rooted in traditions like Ayurveda, a holistic system of medicine that focuses on balance and harmony between the body, mind, and spirit. Sri Lanka boasts a wealth of Ayurvedic retreats and healing spas where you can indulge in personalised treatments, therapeutic massages, and cleansing rituals. 

Healing Holidays stands out as a trusted resource for crafting tailored wellness experiences in Sri Lanka. Healing Holidays ensures that every individual finds a retreat that aligns with their needs.

Santani Wellness Kandy 

In no time at all, Santani Wellness Kandy has sealed its reputation as one of the best spas in Sri Lanka. The buildings here are simple and rustic, inspired by 16th-century Tampita Vihara architecture. They blend with nature and echo traditional Sri Lankan homes with big pillars, exposed columns, and wooden floors. They care about harmony, especially in this lush environment. The way they've designed the buildings respects nature, letting you connect with its healing power. 

Most guests that come to Santani have an interest or wellness goal of detox, anti-ageing, or weight loss. When you arrive, you'll talk with an Ayurvedic doctor who will create a personalised plan to improve your health and a fitness plan for your stay. You can choose to do outdoor activities like mountain biking, trekking, and kayaking in the Hulu River. 

Barberyn Beach Ayurveda Resort  

Barberyn Beach Ayurveda Resort stands out as a family-run haven of well-being on our list of Sri Lanka retreats. With its cozy rooms, free from televisions and radios, it's an inviting spot for a digital detox.

This plan includes Ayurvedic meals, herbal remedies, Yoga, meditation, and a range of treatments such as head and face massages, body massages, and herbal steam baths. These experiences aim to bring harmony to your mind, body, and soul. 

Surya Lanka  

Exclusive to Healing Holidays and sitting beachfront on the coastline of Sri Lanka is the renowned Surya Lanka wellness retreat. Since its opening in 1995, Surya Lanka has been famed for its comprehensive, classical panchakarma cure, legendary care, and generous hospitality.  

The Panchakarma programme at Surya Lanka was crafted with the insights of two esteemed Ayurvedic doctors from India, Professor Asok, and Doctor Athul Thombare, over two decades ago. Since then, the programme has stayed true to its original principles. The resort boasts a very experienced team, with many members having dedicated over a decade to serving here. With its small size, Surya features a close-knit environment, enabling you to enjoy a personalized and intimate wellness experience.
