The Asian-style architecture and colorful design make the resort a cozy, family retreat.

    ‘A great Ayuverda trip’ Original review

    14 days Panchakarma. Nice, small, clean hotel. All staff friendly and helpful. Great food. And great applications. Any time. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Price performance is top notch. Room was simple but with a great balcony to the sea. Very clean. Staff extremely friendly and accommodating. Professional Ayuverda application. Delicious food. Great location right on a sandy beach. Very quiet.
    • Service and hospitality
      All super friendly.
    • Cuisine
      Tasty cuisine, of course kept simple. But great selection of fresh fruit. Mostly in buffet form. There was something for everyone.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      Pool was big enough and clean. Relaxation area very nice under the palm trees with comfortable loungers. The massage rooms also clean but very simple. Some dark and less inviting.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The two doctors are very competent and friendly. The applications are great. Here everyone understands their job. The offered excursions from the hotel were all together great. The highlight was the ride to Galle. There is only one stay after dinner. So you had to spend the rest of the evening always in the room.

    ‘The holiday was so good that we want to repeat it every two years in style’ Original review

    We are completely recovered and, thanks to the programme, arrived back home physically as well as psychologically cleansed. The hotel is a jewel due to the construction and the direct location by the sea. The entire staff was super friendly. The doctors are very mindful, careful and competent. One is greeted by everyone with a real smile all day. The whole area is very clean. You are a few meters from the sea and, after the daily treatments lasting at least 2 hours, you can relax due to the sounds and meditation. All in all it is so lasting that we can still benefit from it at home. We will come back every 2 years if possible. show more

    • Hotel in general
      An interesting small hotel, due its unusual construction, directly on the sea. Everything was very clean. Rooms with sea view and balcony, well-functioning air conditioning and mosquito nets of course. A bit out of the way from the nearest shops. The open restaurant is located directly on the sea.
    • Service and hospitality
      The staff make it a great holiday. You are hugged and cared for like nowhere else.
    • Cuisine
      In the interesting open restaurant by the sea, the dosha dishes with fresh products from the region are served on a varied Ayurveda buffet. Everything lovingly presented and presented in an appealing way.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      If the sea is too wild, the pool invites you to swim. The spa department is newly developed in the upper area and nice and bright. The treatment rooms in the lower area are simple but super clean and always well presented.
    • Treatments and programmes
      The staff is always happy to do something good for you. Everyone is super friendly and very competent. It will respond to your individual needs immediately and all are a well-rehearsed team. You can let yourself go and just enjoy yourself. You look after and care for you like a precious lotus flower.

    ‘It was a dream come true’ Original review

    I had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka in a perfect resort with great physical and mental relaxation. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel is very clean (compared to other eastern stays). The location right on the beach is wonderful. The rooms / hotel are well equipped and spacious.
    • Service and hospitality
      The entire staff is always friendly, courteous and know exactly the welfare of the guests.
    • Cuisine
      The buffet was delicious and rich with something for everyone. Some recipes have been repeated, but there was something new with each meal. Also between the meals was provided by teas and snacks for the welfare of the guests.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The ambience was inviting and welcoming, the rooms in the Ayurveda area but simple enough and the treatments soothing. The pool and beach area was relaxing, clean and inviting.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Five daily treatments are enough to do something good for your health while still having enough free time to relax, read, walk, swim or attend one of the excursions.

    ‘Beautiful Ayurvedic Spa Holiday at the Sea’ Original review

    Very relaxing with good treatments from 2 - 2 1/2 hours a day. You always feel well cared for. Small hotel right on the sea with fine sand beach. Also nice free excursions were being organized. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Nice reception, the deluxe rooms are nice, large and have a lie garden with sea side. Rooms and bathroom are very clean, the towels are changed daily.
    • Service and hospitality
      There is always someone available for all possible problems and these are also solved quickly.
    • Cuisine
      Food is very good in buffet form and actually for a panchakarma treatment almost too much.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The rooms are a bit small, the heaters are uncomfortable, sauna very nice. Treatments as a whole are very good.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Pure relaxation, the doctor is almost always accessible, I felt really well-recovered and healthy afterwards.
