Lake Escapes Health Care in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

☀ The Lake Escapes is not only known for individual & goal-oriented treatments, but also for the fantastic layout of the resort. The park-like subtropical gem is considered one of the most beautiful in the southwest. The Lake Escapes - regardless of its medicinal character - is actually a plantation and in the garden grow mangoes, pineapples, bananas, chili perennials and pepper, actively cultivated are also different kinds of vegetables as well as cinnamon and tea.

The Ayurveda resort creates an atmosphere that is an anti-pole to the stress of our days. The soundscape is limited to the bird sopranos of the small Orioles. The pace of the daily routine can at best be described as decelerated. The own 4 walls are cool, comfortable and spacious. 

Location & Surroundings

Sri Lanka and especially Oriole-Lake is considered a paradise for ornithologists and home to around 50 different bird species. Especially chipmunks, fireflies, monitor lizards and other lizard species call this part of the world their personal living room. 
Despite the serenity and isolation you can reach markets, stores, banks and the hotel area of Bentota and Aluthgama within 15 minutes.

How You Reside

All 12 villas of Lake Escapes offer sea view and are comfortably equipped. Over a monitor, guests receive more information about Sri Lanka, WiFi is available and especially the baths, which are the most important aspect of an Ayurveda treatment, are spacious, bright and modern.

Health & Treatments

Lake Escapes just as the sister hotel Cinnamon Sea (see below) is all about craft. 

It is not about a specific ambience in the Ayurveda centre. Massage beds are work benches, therapists craftsmen and medicals construction managers. During the scheduled time, you will work on project Health.

Amongst others, the resort is specialised in stress complaints, burnout, cardio problems, apoplexy, psoriasis, neurodermatitis, tinnitus and diabetes.

The Ayurveda centre is managed by Dr. Honey Raj Kuruvilla. The team is familiar with each other and works in great harmony. Dr. Honey and Dr. Tillini are responsible for stress complaints and cardio problems. Dr. Fonseka and Dr. Ashoka are amongst others active in ayurvedic orthopedics and gynecological problems.

The treatment is done, first and foremost after the classical cleaning components, but especially depending on the individual health needs. 
After completing the individual anamnese, the treatment procedure is determined. Trust is build, different treatment methods, backgrounds, dining sequences, diets, possible acupuncture treatments and/or own use of medications or naturopathic substitutes are being explained. 

Sustainable, considered, effective. At all times, the environment of Lake Escapes is considered. 

Stress complaints with burnout as a result, apoplexy or myocardial infarction and associated hypertension, under consideration of the climate, are treated actively by the in-house kitchen with its own cultivation and flexible attitude under medical influence. Including peacefulness, and a Gauguin-like environment.

Yoga and meditation are offered in accordance with the treatment. The direct Oriole-Lake view provides a special spiritual experience. 

Free Time

The exotic garden provides an outdoor pool. Lake Escapes is a very central point. Tours to the near areas can be arranged. 10 minutes away, guests will find the estates of Geoffrey and Bewis Bawa which are especially interesting in terms of Indoor/Outdoor- and gardenarchicture. Aluthgama with its Big Buddha lies 15 minutes away, Colombo is ca. 1 hour drive away and Galle, the oldest colonial habour city, can be reached within ca. 45 minutes by car or within 90 minutes from Aluthgama by train.

    ‘very very very good!’ Translated by Google

    An excellent place to relax. Expert staff, from room service to medical care. A very attentive and loving, authentic care. The masseurs super great. The landscape is beautiful and calm at the Oreolsee, with many birds and a lot of twittering. I definitely want to go back. I particularly liked that it was a small house a manageable number of guests. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Very scenic, super clean, great view. Warm welcome. Everything great!
    • Service and hospitality
      As already mentioned. Actually not to top it. The staff - from the gardener to the doctor - take care of everything!
    • Cuisine
      Ingenious, varied and very creative food. Presentation very inviting and typical of the country. Tastes great and is very digestible.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The pool is very nice, the spa area could use some renovation in one place or another, but not really significant
    • Treatments and programmes
      Everything to my complete satisfaction. Very friendly, competent staff who ensured maximum satisfaction.

    ‘Effortless doing nothing to the sound of twittering birds’ Translated by Google

    Lake Escape Health Care doesn't waste an hour. As soon as you get there, the reception is dealt with relatively quickly and the initial consultation is carried out. After that, the individual treatments begin, which are generously planned every day. In 15 days of stay we had over 80 treatments. We really liked the goal-oriented, effective approach to health care. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Dal Lake Escape is a beautiful, small complex surrounded by trees. On the balconies of the bungalows you can see the Oriolesee and listen to countless bird species singing. The rooms are very spacious and clean, especially the bathrooms with the walk-in showers are nice. If a mosquito gets lost in the room, a surrounding mosquito net over the bed guarantees restful sleep. The main building, the therapy rooms and the pool are charmingly designed and can be reached by short paths. You feel very comfortable under the shady roofs and also on the loungers due to the always light breeze. If the schedule permits, smaller excursions with the tuktuk are possible. e.g. the wonderful Warahena or Bentota beach (numerous shops and temples, boat trips) can be reached in about 10 minutes. The natural calm that surrounds the facility is only occasionally disturbed by barking dogs or a baker's mobile.
    • Service and hospitality
      The staff is incredibly friendly and reads every wish from your lips. Regardless of whether in the restaurant, in the office or in the treatment room, if there are any problems, they will be resolved immediately. The team of doctors led by Doctor Money is really great.
    • Cuisine
      The varied dishes in the restaurant are incredibly tasty. The selection is large and the possible combinations of the dishes are almost inexhaustible. We entered a completely new world of taste and really discovered hardly anything that you want to leave in your plate. The Wednesday and Sunday barbecues with chicken and fish are also very tasty.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The pool is big enough and is cleaned every day. You can swim a few lengths refreshingly. The therapists are excellent and treat the patients very individually. We did our first Ayurwedakur there and loved it. You come down very quickly. However, the program is also very tiring in places because you are really working on it. You don't do anything in the classic sense, but you are very exhausted after finishing work. The massage benches could be renewed. These are partly marked by the many oils and the applications, but this does not have a negative effect on the feeling of relaxation.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The programs and applications are very good. You can communicate well in English, and if it really gets stuck, the German-speaking intern Sophie will help you quickly. If you do not agree with a treatment, it is no problem to skip it.
