Ayurveda – the Science of Life

Ayurveda has been practiced for over a thousand years and is recognized as an independent medical science in Sri Lanka – in addition to conventional medicine. Ayurveda focuses on the promotion of good health and the alleviation of the causes of disease. The Ayurveda philosophy emphasizes that body, mind, and soul are inextricably-linked and therefore the individual person is always to be treated with an holistic approach

The balanced interplay of all psychological and physical components is described in the Ayurveda medicine with the concept of the three life energies: the three „doshas“, which also penetrate our body and mind individually in various forms:
Vata > air and ether (space) represent movement, activity and perception. It is responsible for the transport of body substances, excretion processes and the nervous system. 
Pitta > fire and water are responsible for digestion, the heat balance, the metabolism, the hormone balance, the emotions. It is the source of the change processes.
Kapha > earth and water is responsible for the physique, the joints, the fluid balance, the immune system and the mental stability

Four Goals in Life

Dharma > „the right way to live„ strives to combine physical health and inner peace. 
Moksha > „enlightenment“means to cross individual boundaries, to liberate yourself internally and to free your mind from the physical world. 
Artha > material wealth, is the attainment of the financial means necessary for a living. 
Kama > is sensual pleasure and enjoyment. Here it is important to avoid excess and thus prevent diseases.

Let it go, let it flow

Ayurveda draws from a rich pool of treatments to bring about a gradual but permanent healing process and to improve physical and mental well-being. A panchakarma treatment is an extremely effective form of therapy. We use a balanced mixture of medical herbs, nutrition, exercise, and meditation and many special cleansing and rejuvenation treatments.

Ayurveda promotes extensively a healthy lifestyle and the mental well-being, today in particular in response to the stress, exertion and overburdening demands of modern life. The intensive cleansing and deep touching of body and mind provide insights that help life appear in a new light.

Meditation & Yoga

Meditation and Yoga are one of the key pillars of Ayurveda and play a huge role in balancing the human’s body and mind. Both are essential when it comes to enhancing inner peace and focus of the mind. The combination of posture, inner concentration, stability, and controlled breathing and movement fuel energy and train the brain to attain a state of calm. It will also help alleviate back pain.

Professional Yoga practitioners conduct our Yoga sessions. They are anxious to welcome you at 6:30a.m. on our rooftop terrace.


Our Ayurveda diet aims to balance the dosha of your body. We offer delicious wholesome food prepared according to Ayurveda principles – individually prepared for you. Ayurvedic nutrition consists of 6 flavours called “rasas”; sweet, bitter, astringent, salty, sour and hot. A meal, which contains all six flavours is considered well balanced. We use organic produce that is grown in our own garden. Drinks infused in herbs and tea are served all day for refreshment.

You will also learn to avoid sugar. Only fruits and other sweets containing natural sugar sources are served as desert.
