Karunakarala Ayurveda Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

Surrounded by pure nature with many coconut palms and away from mass tourism, the idyllic Karunakarala Ayurveda Resort is located directly on the Mao Oya River. The resort specializes in authentic Ayurveda but also offers relaxation and a private atmosphere with picturesque views for leisure-seeking guests and families. The Colombo – Jaffna railway line runs nearby, with trains in both directions several times a day.

Location & Surroundings

Long sandy beaches and exotic flora and fauna await you in Waikkal, a quaint fishing village north of Negombo (about 10 km away). A must-do is a boat tour on the Mao Oya River. Beach walks (approximately 5-8 km away), yoga, and soothing Ayurveda treatments help you unwind, rejuvenate, and quickly leave behind the stress of daily life. Colombo Airport is about a 35-minute drive away.

Dining & Leisure

Enjoy your meals overlooking the river in the covered area or on the terrace right by the riverbank. For Ayurveda guests, fresh ingredients are used to prepare and serve Ayurvedic dishes recommended by the doctor for your constitutional type (Dosha) - healthy and delicious. In addition to vegetarian dishes, occasionally white fish and meat are also available. Guests not on Ayurveda can look forward to Western and local delicacies served as a set menu. The vegetables are mostly sourced from the resort's own garden. The resort has already received an award for its Ayurvedic cuisine. Afternoon snack (High-Tea) by the riverbank. Tea and other herbal drinks are available throughout the day.

Wellness & Spa

  

Ayurveda Center

In the expansive Ayurveda Center, featuring 16 treatment rooms, 5 steam baths, 4 herbal baths, and its own Ayurveda pharmacy, an experienced team of 2 Ayurveda doctors and 10 therapists awaits you. With the goal of correcting the imbalance of your doshas to realign body, mind, and spirit, treatments and diets are tailored specifically for you. Enjoy relaxation, detoxification, and rejuvenation with facial, head, foot, and full-body massages, herbal and steam baths, Shirodhara oil forehead flow, eye, ear, and nasal cleansing, along with other therapies as prescribed. Yoga, breathing exercises, and meditation contribute to mental and spiritual balance. Ayurvedic cooking classes and lectures on herbal and Ayurvedic teachings complete the offerings. Ayurveda wellness programs are also available.

Free Time

The resort also offers boat tours on the Mao Oya and excursions to local markets or the surrounding cities of Negombo and Colombo (at a charge). Additionally, you can participate in various activities at the hotel, such as a traditional cooking demonstration, a workshop on making herbal balls, and sari fitting sessions.
