Barberyn-Ayurveda-Resorts-Sri-Lanka -02

Originating some 5,000 years ago, Ayurveda, “the science of life”, is one of the oldest forms of scientific medicine and is based on the
philosophy of detoxification and rejuvenation.

Ayurveda treats the body, mind and spirit as an entity, and works on the basis that the mind and body affect each other, and by working together can overcome illness. It has two main aims: to treat the cause and symptoms of illnesses that have already manifested and to help strengthen the immune system and maintain good health.

Ayurveda is fast becoming a household name with all those interested in “alternative medicine”. Not only is it capable of keeping you healthy and balanced, but also can treat a huge list of ailments.

If you are looking for a new way to detox then the Barberyn Ayurveda Resorts in Sri Lanka may be what you just need.

Located on Sri Lanka’s south-west coast, 85km from the airport, the 75-room resort provides all the advantages of a resort hotel with the facilities of a professional Ayurvedic health center.

The Barberyn Reef resort was founded in 1968 by Sudana Rodrigo and remains a family business since then. Barberyn Reef is known for being the first health resort in Sri Lanka to offer authentic Ayurveda treatments to a western audience.

In 2003, the Barberyn Beach resort located in Weligama was opened as a sister site. Both Barberyn resorts have in-house Ayurvedic health centres. The team consists of resident Ayurvedic doctors, physicians, therapists, dieticians, and visiting specialists. Both health centres prepare their own Ayurvedic medicines and oils for their guests.

Barberyn encourages self-awareness and spiritual development of its guests offering yoga, Tai Chi and meditation classes. There are no TVs in the room to encourage you selfreflection and create a tranquil environment. There is a library at the resort with a wide selection of books. And the resort also organises regular sightseeing trips to the surrounding countryside.
