Ypsylon Resort in Detail

Your Ayurveda Resort

☀ In the midst of about 5 hectares of lush vegetation directly on the 200 m private beach is the idyllic and quiet area of Ypsylon Resort. Their consciously flat and natural design fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape. The Ypsylon is very committed to environmental protection - waste separation, waste recycling, energy conservation and resource recovery are in the foreground of a specially equipped "environmental zone" near the resort. These measures are unique in Sri Lanka and are now funded 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.

Both categories are conveniently furnished with shower/WC/bidet, ceiling fan, individually adjustable air conditioning, mosquito net, terrace or balcony overlooking the garden or side sea view.

    ‘A great Ayurvedic retreat.’ Original review

    Accomodation- ☆☆☆ General staff- ☆☆☆☆ Ayurvedic Treatment- ☆☆☆☆☆ Ayurvedic Ambience - ☆☆☆ Ayurvedic Food - ☆☆☆/☆ Ayurvedic staff- ☆☆☆☆☆ A great place for Ayurvedic Retreat. Ayurvedic doctor is precise in his dignosis and treatment protocol. Analysing meridians and treating accordingly. The physician is also experienced in accupuncture. There is 7 days anti-stress or 14 days and more for panchakarma treatments. Ayurvedic staff's techniques are remarkable. They are always friendly and take great care in treating each person. All was good except the ayurvedic ambience and of course mosquitos, houseflies, ants and house lizards are our daily nightmare. Bring your own toiletries as it is not a typical hotel with a daily supply of shower gel, shampoo, toothbrush and other toiletries. show more

    ‘It was fantastic.’ Original review

    The Ayurveda treatment was very successful. I was well looked after by the doctor and the therapist. The accommodation in the hotel was good and well maintained. show more

    • Service and hospitality
      The staff, both the service in the hotel restaurant, as well as the cleaning staff, were very nice, friendly and helpful.
    • Cuisine
      The Ayurveda cuisine was varied and good. The buffet always had a wide selection. Initially, the bowls were equipped with name and effect on the organism on laminated sheets. Unfortunately, the slips taken away by rain disappeared after two weeks.
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      The pool is a bit small in the swimmer area, well maintained and clean. Every morning at 7 o'clock started with gymnastic yoga exercises on the beach. This was led by the doctor. The massage treatments were daily over two hours, with five different applications per day. Darshana, my masseur, received a lot of praise and a good tip. He was first class!
    • Treatments and programmes
      I feel very relaxed and lost 9 pounds!

    ‘Travel for our 40 year anniversary’ Original review

    We did panchakarma: very good. Negative point: we get scammed when we buy something, even after bargaining; there are really different rates for locals and for tourists. show more

    • Hotel in general
      Small structure very nice, feet in the water, very well maintained garden.  The rooms are spacious, with fan, air conditioning.
    • Service and hospitality
      Perfect staff: attentive, smiling. Everything is done to make us feel good.
    • Cuisine
      We booked a Ayurveda programme, so vegetarian meals in the form of buffets. Well prepared, sometimes a little too spicy for our European taste buds. At breakfast, fresh fruit juice: passion fruit or papaya or mango: a treat. We ate a lot of food.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Very high quality care. An EXTRAORDINARY Ayurvedic doctor, present from 7am to 6pm every day, always available. Each guest has a personalized treatment: medications, massages and other treatments 7 days a week. We are pampered. Panchakarma recommended.
    • Comments from SpaDreams
      No wacky promises. The advisor (Julien) is very professional. You get what you pay for and even more.
