With coconut palms lining the Sri Lankan coastline, this is a place to escape modern life, to re-centre and unwind at a slower pace and the setting to transform using the resort’s 3-pillars of mindfulness, deep sleep and self-care.
Each of the wellness journeys is tailored according to individual doshas and vikruti, (current imbalances) after a consultation with the Resident Ayurveda Doctor which addresses, holistically, exercise, diet, sleep, stress and relaxation needs. A week-long journey of coaching with personal yogis, life coaches, trainers and chefs culminates with a long-term plan for continued wellness back home.
According to Dr. Jayachandran Thampi, “These guided programmes are designed to balance and introduce the benefits of Ayurveda; perhaps leading to a deeper immersion upon return. Complemented by Yoga, healing arts and ayurvedic nutritional guidance they introduce the concept of ‘holism’ – not just evaluating our physical state, but along with it the more esoteric elements of being. Through our personalised approach, we gently ease guests through the process of healing.”
Each ayurvedic retreat offers a holistic journey of distinct benefits. Collectively these programmes encompass an ideal of happiness – a healthy balance of body, mind and spirit.
