Ypsylon Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

Located amidst about 5 hectares of enchanting flora and fauna and directly on a 200m wide private cove (sandy beach seasonal), the idyllic and tranquil Ypsylon Resort blends perfectly into the landscape. The family-run Ypsylon, with a seasonally open diving school, is also highly committed to environmental protection. Autonomous self-sufficiency, waste separation/recycling, energy production/saving, and resource recovery are prioritized in a specially designated 'environmental zone' near the resort. These measures are unique in Sri Lanka and are supported by the state.

Location & Surroundings

Beruwela is one of the oldest cities on the west coast of Sri Lanka, where a lighthouse built by colonial powers stands on a small island in front of the harbour. The reef extending from it protects the miles-long sandy beach up to the Bentota River.


Next to the Ayurveda Center, exclusively reserved for Ayurveda guests, is the Ayurveda Pavilion with an open buffet. The day starts with a 'Nature Smile Smoothie', and for lunch and dinner, traditional Ayurvedic cuisine is served, low-calorie, vegetarian, mixed with local side dishes. On request, lean white fish or chicken is available.

A public à la carte restaurant with national and international dishes is located at the front of the resort. Many herbs and ingredients are sourced from their own cultivation.

Ayurveda Center

The Ayurveda Center is situated in the garden area of the resort and is led by experienced Ayurvedic doctors. You can expect a skilled and trained team of therapists, multiple treatment rooms for Shirodhara, oil massages, baths, acupuncture, an Ayurvedic steam bath, and a herbal sauna. Additionally, therapy-supporting yoga and meditation sessions (approximately 10€ (approx. UK £9 / USD $11) per hour) are offered. Handmade natural medicine based on herbs, following traditional Ayurvedic recipes, is used.


High cholesterol, high blood pressure, stress, lethargy, burn-out, sleep disorders, migraine, tinnitus, cardiovascular diseases, skin diseases, obesity, diabetes, allergies, asthma, infectious diseases, arthritis, rheumatism, varicose veins, Parkinson's, digestive problems, gynaecological issues.

The resort offers its own diving school (seasonal), table tennis, and beach volleyball. There are numerous cultural and sporting excursion opportunities, such as the weekly market in Aluthgama, Cinnamon Island, and a river cruise on the Bentota River (bookable on site).
