Ypsylon Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

☀ The idyllic and quiet Ypsylon Resort is situated in the middle of 5 hectares of enchanting flora and fauna directly on the 200 m private beach. Its deliberately flat and natural construction fits perfectly into the landscape. The family-run Ypsylon is very much committed to environmental protection - self-sufficiency, waste separation, waste recycling, energy 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 benevolently 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.

    ‘Proper spa leave’ Original review (automatically translated)

    We booked 14 days of Panchakarma therapy and chose a cottage. The Ayurveda treatments were very intensive, beneficial and, as with a healing retreat, sometimes exhausting. The morning yoga was great. The cottage, situated in the beautiful garden, was an oasis of peace for us. We felt well looked after and comfortable. show more

    • Hotel in general
      There were always friendly people at the reception. The cottage was clean, the air conditioning and fan worked well. worked well.
    • Cuisine
      The wooden dining pavilion was spatially separated from the restaurant, which we found very relaxing. So you can also go directly after a treatment unceremoniously eat in the sarong.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The therapists and doctors were very competent. The friendly nature of all created a very relaxed spa atmosphere.

    ‘I was very pleased with the location, accommodations, and services offered at the resort.’ Original review (automatically translated)

    In the two weeks I have recovered very well and start with new strength and zest for life again in everyday life. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel is located directly on the sandy beach, which is designed in such a way that long walks on the beach are not possible. But swimming in the sea is very good because of an offshore reef. The Ayurveda area is well thought-out and user-friendly - with a pool for those who like it.
    • Service and hospitality
      The service in the hotel, at the reception and at the food is comparatively reserved and does not approach the guests with suggestions or proposals. If you have ideas yourself (excursions to the town, shopping, etc.) everyone must actively take care of how to get their wishes fulfilled. Offers are not made.
    • Cuisine
      The selection of dishes was sufficient overall, although not generous (rice and two to a maximum of three curries for all doshas; soup and fruit). On the other hand, the dishes all tasted very good and I did not quarrel with the relatively small selection.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The Ayurveda Center area was excellently organized, the treatments beneficial and professional. It would have been nice if the impression of a mass operation without consideration for individual needs could have been avoided more.
    • Treatments and programmes
      see above. e.g. I was assigned a different therapist practically every day, so that once expressed individual needs either had to be explained anew every day or had to be dispensed with because of the language difficulties involved.

      We have chosen the Panchakarma cure. This program is exhausting, but it was worth it. Competent doctors and therapists have accompanied us. The recovery value is enormous and the immediate positive feeling of health will accompany us long after the healing therapy.

    ‘A recommended Ayurveda vacation’ Original review (automatically translated)

    An Ayurveda vacation as I expected. However, so many guests (approx. 50) I have not experienced before in this resort. The quality of the treatment has nevertheless not suffered. Super therefore also the organization by the team! Particularly noteworthy is the great treatment by the Ayurvedic doctor Dr. Thisara and his team, who shines not only in the diagnosis but also in the daily yoga by his knowledge. Super treatment by the therapists (Supun, Johan, Rashin, Pasindu, Malith etc.) We will surely come again if it is possible. We will surely come again. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Just an Ayurveda resort. I think the cleanliness is so common in the country, which is taken care of by about one - three cleaning boys. We had a cottage which met our expectations, because we had that before. The hotel is right on the beach and swimming is sometimes possible.
    • Service and hospitality
      The staff is very nice and always helpful.
    • Cuisine
      Ayurvedic food.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Actually OK, but there is always room for improvement.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Very good execution of the treatments by the above mentioned staff.
