    ‘I feel refreshed, no longer tired, completely relaxed.’ Original review

    Wonderful, as it has not been for years. The medical care was great. Very nice, quiet hotel area. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Super nice staff, very attentive. Very clean. Due to the humidity, small defects remain (bath).

      Wonderful
    • Cuisine

    ‘Resful like every year and very satisfied with the care’ Original review

    We feel and recover very well and feel refueled and energized for the coming months. We are looking forward to next year, when we want to travel to Sri Lanka again show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel shows significant signs of wear, the mattresses should urgently be renewed and the roofs even have isolated leaks in heavy rain, so that it drips audibly from the roof on the dropped ceiling

    ‘An intense experience’ Original review

    This is much more than a holiday. It is a holistic encounter with yourself, if you are open to the program. show more

    • Service and hospitality
      Everything was wonderful, all very, very nice. Only the constant direct and indirect badgering for tips needs getting used to - and needs a clear decision, namely only once at the end and then really generous for all.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Ayurveda is a separate system. You have to be able to open - and it takes time. Here they are very careful with the spa guest - but also very professional.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The treatments are professional and good in timing. Highly recommended and a great compliment to the yoga sessions and the meditations

    ‘Healing in Sri Lanka’ Original review

    I feel very relaxed and calm. The room was very nice and the area is very well maintained. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Everything was clean, the people are very friendly there. It is also easy to walk into town.
    • Service and hospitality
      It could not be better!
    • Cuisine
      Food is repetitive, but it is good. One could argue about the taste.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The pool looks big, but it is not, the pool is raised in the middle, you can not "swim through".
    • Treatments and programmes
      Great treatments, very friendly staff!
