Ypsylon Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

☀ In the midst of approx. 5 hectares of enchanting flora and fauna, directly on the 200 m wide private bay (sandy beach seasonal), lies the idyllic and quiet complex of the Ypsylon Resort. The deliberately flat construction blends perfectly into the landscape. The family-run Ypsylon with seasonally open diving school is also very committed to environmental protection. Self-sufficiency, waste separation/recycling, energy generation/saving and resource recovery are the focus of a specially established "environmental zone" not far from the resort. These measures are unique in Sri Lanka and are favorably supported by the state.

Location & Surroundings

Beruwela is one of the oldest cities on the west coast of Sri Lanka, with a lighthouse built by the colonial powers on a small island in front of the port. The reef emerging from it protects the kilometre long sandy beach up to the Bentota river.

How You Reside

Spread over several two-storey houses there are 40 rooms (approx. 25-31 sqm) on the premises. You can choose between "Eco" wooden cottages especially built for Ayurveda guests in the garden next to the Ayurveda Centre or comfort rooms. The latter are mostly located in the side wing of the main building, 5 since 2018 close to the wooden cottages with a view of the pool and Ayurveda centre. Both categories are completely tiled and conveniently furnished with shower/WC/bidet, ceiling fan, individually adjustable air conditioning, safe, mosquito net, terrace or balcony overlooking the garden or side sea view. Comfort room with an additional four-poster bed in colonial design or 2 single beds. Single rooms are double rooms for single use.

    ‘Everything was a complete success, thank you.’ Original review (automatically translated)

    The vacation was really good, everyone went to great lengths to fulfill all our wishes and expectations. Our room was large, which is very comfortable for two people in a room. The friendliness of all the staff and therapists is exemplary, thank you. The general ambience: very well-kept resort. Many thanks, Renata and Bernhard from Berlin show more

    • Service and hospitality
      Everyone, and I really mean everyone, was friendly and helpful.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The best of all are the treatments, for me simply unbeatable. My needs and wishes were taken into account. I feel very relaxed and full of new energy.

    ‘Therapy offer at ypsylon particularly good, super, competent and professional’ Original review (automatically translated)

    The location of the ypsylon resort is very good. The health, therapeutic area, treatments very good, hotel very good. There is a crucial imbalance, you should definitely know that beforehand. For example, the transfer from the airport to the hotel was also good. We arrived at the hotel at 7.30 and I could not get up until 12.00 room. The voucher says 13.00 check-in and 11.00 check-out....After this long flight and 1-2 nights of sleeplessness, this situation was extraordinary and stressful, no reception and no concrete information. now I know that and would prepare myself for it. It was my 5th time in srilanka for Ayurveda retreat. The first four times it was always the case that I was welcomed and looked after in a very friendly manner immediately after the transfer and was able to move into my room straight away. It was also never a problem to be able to use the room until the evening when checking out, as the flight usually leaves at midnight. In the ypsylon we had to leave the room at 11.00 am. But since the transfer was not until 20.00 in the evening, we had to book a room again for the day at full rate. You have to shower several times and simply need to retreat for the day. Nevertheless, I would go back to the ypsylon. Everything else was top, relaxing and ambience good show more

    • Comments from SpaDreams
      Dear SpaDreams guests, thank you very much for your constructive review. We are sorry that your stay was not to your complete satisfaction. In the low season, it is often possible to move into the room free of charge before check-in or to stay until after check-out as a gesture of goodwill on the part of the hotels. In the high season this is difficult due to high occupancy rates and we recommend booking an extra night in advance. We wish you all the best and are always available to answer any questions you may have. Best regards, Your SpaDreams Team
