Amba Ayurveda Boutique Hotel in detail

Your Hotel

☀ The Amba Ayurveda Boutique Hotel with direct beach access was built in 2012 in a modern style. Particular emphasis is placed on the combination of Western standards and environmental sustainability. Rooftop solar panels, a natural sewage system and a seawater pool (approx. 20 square meters) are part of this concept. The boutique hotel is also dedicated to the practice of authentic Ayurvedic treatments. In addition to the well-known Panchakarma programmes, this hotel offers treatments and programmes for guests who are still skeptical about Ayurveda. The former Ayurveda therapist and current hotel manager is sure: "Our Ayurveda will convince you!".

Location & Surroundings

Balapitiya is a small original fishing village in the southwest of Sri Lanka. You can reach the village by highway from Colombo airport in about 2 hours. However, the longer overland route (approx. 3.5 hours) through tropical landscapes, partly along the beaches, through fishing villages and tourist centres is recommended. So you get a first impression of your holiday destination.

Good to Know

Please note that a new building is currently under construction on a site 200 m away from the Amba Ayurveda Boutique Hotel. Due to the construction work, optical impairments are to be expected in the two rooms above, as well as possible acoustic impairments in the garden area. The end of the construction work is expected in 2019. Despite an already very good price-performance ratio, Amba has decided to grant a 10% discount for the possible impairment until further notice.

    • Hotel in general
      Spacious and clean hotel and rooms, very secluded and secure, which was perfect for the Ayurvedic treatment, only the surf and quiet birds were heard.

      Very friendly and attentive staff
    • Cuisine
      There was over 14 days always a different menu which was delicious. There were things I did not know before, let alone eat. The staff always showed us the vegetables if we did not know something
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The seawater pool was cleaned every second day and was therefore clean and a pleasant refreshment. Treatment area was practical and clean, very relaxing due to the peace

      Excellent! Daily 2 hours full body massage is just unbeatable. They are already painfully missed back home!

    ‘Totally relaxing’ Original review

    For 3 weeks we did the Panchakarma treatmemt at the Amba Ayurveda Boutique Hotel. We were all super well looked after: The rooms are large and modern and with sea view, the applications are versatile and fantastic and are always adapted to your personal needs. The food is delicious and has now expanded our menu back home. The construction site near the hotel did not affect our well-being. It was only heard a few times during the 3 weeks. The whole team was very friendly and helpful. We felt very comfortable and can only recommend the hotel. show more

    • Hotel in general
      It is a small hotel with only 10 rooms, exclusively for Ayurveda guests. The rooms are large and modern with sea view, the hotel is located directly on the sea, there is a nice pool, the sea is just steps away. The ambience in the hotel is very comfortable.
    • Service and hospitality
      All service staff were extremely friendly and helpful. All our requests were fulfilled at any time.
    • Cuisine
      The food was very good and mostly vegetarian.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Overall, the ambience is very nice. The Ayurvedic treatments are very good. There are about 5 daily applications, which take 1.5 to 2 hours in total. If the hotel is fully occupied, then you can not find a beach chair by the pool.
    • Treatments and programmes
      There are consultations with the ayurveda doctor every three days. She gave us competent advice and responded to our requests.

The best Ayurvedic cuisine that I have ever experienced in an Ayurvedic holiday - very varied 3-course menus matched to the respective Dosha. Special requests were fulfilled at all times. Great doctor, very good therapist. After 3 weeks Ayurveda I feel very relaxed and enjoyed the stay each and every second! show more

      Everything was very tasty and modern; very dedicated team. Very very clean. Spacious rooms with modern design, great bathroom, wonderful beds, lots of lovely details - my room had a dream view of the ocean - you could hear the waves; The sea was not 200 meters away. Everything absolutely fantastic.

      The entire team was very friendly and dedicated; every wish was taken from the eyes and immediately fulfilled. Great!

      Very varied; in 3 weeks stay as good as no duplications. Two cooks who were enjoying their job. Great direct contact with the chefs through open kitchen. The best Ayurvedic food I have ever had.
