Experience authentic Ayurveda in Sri Lanka
Choose between two different resorts, each with a different character, but the same common goal: improving your health through authentic Ayurveda while on a Sri Lanka beach holiday.
Barberyn Reef Resort, Beruwala Sri Lanka's pioneer health resort specializing in Ayurveda.
Find yourself and heal your body, mind, and spirit in the holistic experience of Ayurveda, meditation and yoga, in this unique property overlooking the ocean. Join like-minded guests at the original home of Sri Lanka Ayurveda in Beruwala. Barberyn Reef welcomes its guests with warmth and a quiet competence that few resorts can match - with more than 40 years of fine hospitality, more than 25 of these fully dedicated to Ayurveda. Barberyn Ayurveda Resorts are the founders of the first Ayurveda resort ever, in 1984, and thus pioneers of Ayurvedic tourism in Sri Lanka.
Barberyn Reef Ayurveda Resort is located on Sri Lanka's south-west coast, 85km south from Colombo International Airport. A long sea-front sheltered by a natural reef runs the length of the resort and forms a natural swimming lagoon. Sand stretches for miles along the shore. Barberyn Reef has 75 rooms which are furnished with hand crafted wood made on site by our own team of carpenters.
Rooms have mosquito nets, attached toilets with showers or bath tubs, natural ventilation as well as electric fans and a terrace or balcony. Only a few of the rooms are air conditioned, as most guests prefer natural ventilation - which is recommended during Ayurveda treatment. Garden Rooms and Beach Front Rooms are clusters of rooms situated in several blocks - some are on stilts, others are located on two levels (ground floor rooms and first floor rooms). Each room is unique with its own character and identity depending on the location and the furnishing. Rooms are allocated subject to availability.
Ayurveda has become a household name with all those interested in "alternative medicine". Yet Ayurveda is not an alternative medicine. It is one of the oldest forms of medical science known to man - originating 5000 years ago. It is a way to a healthy and long life and can complement modern medicine.
Ayurveda therapy has two main objectives:
to treat the symptoms of a disease and to help individuals to strengthen their immune system.
Ayurvedic medicine treats body, mind and spirit of a person as a whole entity. It works on the basis that mind and body affect each other, and together can overcome disease. Ayurvedya Chikitsa (Ayurvedic treatment) has eight main branches which are further divided into sixteen sub branches. The treatment is not aimed at simply relieving symptoms, but to bring back the balance of physical-mental and spiritual aspects of an individual. If you have any specific medical condition, the physicians will explain to you how the condition is understood in Ayurveda as to the etiology, its signs and symptoms, the stage of the disease, relieving and aggravating factors , what is beneficial and what is not, and - most importantly - what would be the best line of management of the condition.
