Ayurveda is an ancient holistic health system — not only can it keep you healthy and balanced, but also treat a huge list of ailments.

Sri Lanka’s authentic Barberyn Ayurveda Resorts include Barberyn Reef, located in Beruwala and Barberyn Beach, located in Weligama. Barberyn Resorts provide all the advantages of a resort hotel with the facilities of a professional Ayurvedic health center. Both resorts share the same philosophy of promoting authentic Ayurveda, yoga and spiritual enrichment. They are designed to improve guests’ health and wellbeing through Ayurvedic diagnosis, healing treatments, herbal medications, Ayurvedic diet, yoga and meditation.

Barberyn resorts have in-house Ayurvedic health centres. The team consists of resident Ayurvedic doctors, physicians, therapists, dieticians, and visiting specialists. The health centre prepares its own Ayurvedic medicines and oils for the guests.

Newly arrived guests visit the health centre for the consultation and diagnoses with the Ayurvedic doctor who creates an individual programme of treatments for each guests consisting of oil, herbal massages, herbal baths, herbal medicines and liqueurs, as well as an individual diet for the period of their stay at Barberyn.

A healthy diet is an integral part of Ayurveda. At Barberyn, each meal provides various examples of all the Ayurvedic food taste categories that influence our body energy – sweet, salty, spicy, hot, cold and bitter. There is a trained Ayurvedic dietician on hand at every meal to advise guests on the foods to take and avoid according to their prescribed treatments.
