    ‘Completely happy’ Original review

    I had booked a Panchakarma cure, and felt very comfortable and in good hands. All staff was very attentive and extremely caring. Fantastic. The complex is very well maintained and there is a nice garden. My thanks to doctor Naleke and his staff. What warmth and competence. I miss you all already! By the family-like care one feels right at home. The owner of the complex fulfills all guests wishes. I immediately fell in love with these people and the beautiful, quiet, family-like place. I am happy to come back next year and am already looking forward to my second family. Thank you all, you have deeply touched my soul and I feel renewed all around. show more

    ‘Great, extraordinary and extremely beneficial experience with a feel-good factor’ Original review

    Family atmosphere, a beautiful garden, beautiful location right on the Bentota River, excellent Ayurvedic cuisine, friendly staff and helpful accommodating hosts rounded off the Ayurveda treatment under the care of the very competent doctor and his great team. We felt well recovered enjoyed a soothing spa holiday. show more

    • Hotel in general
      A great villa with simple but clean rooms in a great garden with direct riverfront location and pool. Nice atmosphere, great views. Quiet location set back from the main road. Shops in the immediate vicinity. Sometimes a bit annoying: the calling + preaching of the muezzine from 3 mosques in the immediate vicinity. Beach with tuktuk easily accessible.
    • Service and hospitality
      Helpful, always friendly service. Always there for your wishes. Always considerate, especially with regard to the treatments during the cure. Dedicated staff and hosts with a personal touch, who also like to provide a surprise or a trip.
    • Cuisine
      Varied, very tasty Ayurvedic cuisine, mostly vegetarian, supplemented with fish and chicken, as well as daily fresh fruit. Outstanding!
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      An imaginative, clean spa area set amidst a beautiful green garden. Yoga in the garden overlooking the river. A nice pool in the garden. What more do you want?!
    • Treatments and programmes
      A super competent doctor, always to personal care, tailored to the personal and individual needs, accordingly. Consistently good, friendly and helpful staff. Soothing and holistically coordinated treatments that contribute to a high degree of recovery.

    ‘Like in paradise!’ Original review

    During the 20-day Auyurveda treatment in the hotel with a park ambience, I was able to relax and let loose. The afternoons we mainly used for excursions in the surroundig area and the beach, which gave us a wonderful impression of the land and people. show more

    • Hotel in general
      The hotel consists of several villas in a beautifully maintained garden. You do not feel like you are staying at a hotel but at home. The houses and rooms were cleaned each day.
    • Service and hospitality
      The hotel staff could easily pick up on any wishes and the landlord made sure that we feel welcomed almost daily about our stay. He also organizes excursions that are close and far away, e.g. cycling and tips to avoid falling into the tourist traps.
    • Cuisine
      Wonderful buttler in the lounge area or directly served meals by the river. Unfortunately the chef was not allowed to cheat because of our Ayurveda treatment. They had excellent local dishes often with chicken or fish. Varied spiced and served with side dishes.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      With 3 pools at the hotel you had the choice between square sized, even longer and one in shape of a kidney. All three pools were really clean and well maintained by housekeeping despite the fact it was low season. The Ayurveda area is beautifully decorated and managed by the Ayurveda team. Only the mosquitos (last streamers of the monsoon)
    • Treatments and programmes
      The Ayurveda treatment is administered by a state-approved Ayurveda doctor, who also carries out the yoga program in the morning.The team of Ayurveda therapists perform the massages and treatments in a very attentive and friendly way. During the daily acupuncture treatment by the doctor, the current health status was always queried and immediately included in the next treatment steps. There was always someone who had a very attentive, loving eye on one. The not so comfortable applications were still treated wonderfully by the Ayurveda therapists and the doctor.
