Ayurveda Packages

As well as offering general Ayurveda packages which can be booked for one day or more we also do offer custom made Ayurveda packages which are goal and target orientated. These custom made programs all offer yoga and meditation; Ayurveda therapies and massages, doctor consultation and all three meals.

Relax and Rejuvenate

Our basic Ayurveda program starts with an introductory to Ayurveda. This is ideal for those seeking to have a healthy leisure holiday. Those seeking an introduction to a holistic new way to life will enjoy the benefits of our program.

De Stress

This is very similar to relax and rejuvenate program but is altered to treat people who have high stress levels in day to day lifestyle. Stress is a leading cause of a variety of illnesses including depression, anxiety, insomnia and heart disease. Our therapy plan aims to reduce stress levels and also shield our guest from the ill effects caused by chronic stress.

Weight Loss Program

Ayurveda recommends the need for a proper diet also known as “ahara”. It focuses on eating the right food at the right time in the right quantity. This program gives a lot of attention on metabolic rate and how we can improve our body’s natural metabolic rate. We also place an emphasis on detoxifying, digestive cleaning and removal of toxins that aid in long term weight loss. A simple adjustment like starting the day with a hot lime water preparation goes a long way. Through the use of food, oils, therapies and Ayurveda medicine and a set routine that aims at re-conditioning the body to a weight loss zone.

Detox

Aiming at the release of all the toxins in the body, special care is taken for a food plan to avoid over taxing digestive system and allow smooth purification. Be prepared to drink a lot of water as it is used as a key element in channeling out the toxins of the body.

Anxiety and Depression

As a general rule it is said in Ayurveda that vata imbalances contribute to anxiety, fear and mental instability. Pitta imbalance may give rise to anger and irritability. Kapha imbalance may lead to lethargy and depression. Apart from using therapies, breathing exercises and a food plan we also try and come up with a daily routine for you to follow when you go back home. Mind hacks like acceptance and a gratitude list is taught and strongly recommended to be used at home.

Excursions

Brief Garden

11Km inland from Beruwala is the Brief Garden. Eruptions of exotic foliage, the grounds are a lovely place to amble and spend a leisurely morning. The house which belonged to Bevis Bawa, brother of renowned architect Geoffrey Bawa, has an eclectic range of artwork on display. Artwork and photography by renowned local artists such as Lucky Senanayake and Lionel Wendt are available for viewing.

Lunuganga Estate

Lunuganga Estate was the country home of the renowned Sri Lankan architect Geoffrey Bawa. Started in 1947, the garden led Bawa, a lawyer called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1940, to decide to become an architect. As he went on to become Sri Lanka’s and one of Asia’s most prolific and influential architects, the garden at the Lunuganga estate remained his first muse and experimental laboratory for new ideas. He continued to change and experiment with its spaces and structures throughout his life until his final illness in 1998. Left to the Lunuganga Trust on his demise in 2003, the gardens are now open to the public and the buildings on the estate are run as a country house hotel.

Kalutara Temple

One of the country’s most holy places of worship and attracts both the South west Buddhist community and tourists to its golden Buddhist. Inside the Dogoba, is a magnificent array of paintings describing the stories of Lord Buddha. The 3 stories-high Kalutara Vihara, is a Buddhist temple built in the 1960s which holds the distinction of being the only shrine in the world that is hollow.

Richmond Castle

Built at the turn of the century in Kalutara, Richmond Castle is considered one of the most spectacular architectural works of the period. It was the property of a wealthy landowner turned philanthropist, Padikara Mudali Nanayakkara Rajawasala Appuhamilage Don Arthur de Silva Wijesinghe Siriwardena. The mansion stands majestically at top of a hill, on a 42 acre estate beside the Kalutara-Palatota Road.

Beruwala Water Sports

Bentota has excellent water sport facilities such as water scooter rides, wind surfing, parasailing, water skiing etc.

Turtle Hatchery – Kosgoda

Kosgoda is famous for its turtle conservation project operated by the Wild Life Protection Society of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1988 to protect Sri Lanka’s turtles from extinction. Since then it has released about 3.5 million baby turtles into the wild. Kosgoda turtle hatchery also has tanks for injured or disabled turtles including albino turtles that would not survive in the wild.

Kande Viharaya – Aluthgama

Kande Viharaya (temple on the hill) has the tallest sitting statue of Lord Buddha in the world at about 48 m/160 ft in height. The building of Kande Viharaya was initiated way back in 1734. Thousands of devotees flock the holy grounds of the Kande Viharaya daily, seeking mental and spiritual relief. The tranquility and serenity that the Kande Viharaya brings to one is palpable. Entrance to the temple requires both men and women to wear clothing that covers the top body and shoulders. Skirts, sarongs and trousers should be below knee length. It is best to keep a wrap or sarong handy when visiting places of worship.
