    Our opinion

    Ayurveda Pavilions is a first class health retreat where guests enjoy privacy and Ayurvedic therapies.

    Hotel description

    The Ayurveda Pavilions is designed for people seeking a range of professional Ayurvedic therapies in tranquilising, peaceful surroundings. The natural environment has been preserved in the construction of the hotel to protect the ecology and also induce a sense of harmony with nature, promoting wellbeing. The hotel is situated on the west coast of Sri Lanka and enjoys all year-round temperatures of 30 degrees Centigrade. The town of Negombo is set along a beautiful palm-fringed beach of golden sand, surrounded by clusters of pretty fishing villages. There are numerous Catholic Churches here too, explaining why the area is known as ‘Little Rome’.The accommodation at the exclusive Ayurveda Pavilions retreat is set in 12 luxury villas, each with its own garden and treatment room to ensure privacy and induce a feeling of seclusion and reflection. The King villas are more spacious and benefit from a CD player. Spa treatments are generally performed in the comfort of your room, although you may want to visit the Spa Therapy Centre to enjoy treatments such as the Herbal Steam Bath. When you arrive, the spa doctor will visit you in your pavilion to discuss your requirements and formulate a personalised treatment programme.The Ayurveda Pavilions' restaurant overlooks the swimming pool and serves a range of Ayurvedic cuisine to complement your treatments. Your menu is matched to your own particular needs, depending on your dosha, or body type. Dishes are prepared using a range of herbs, fresh vegetables and seafood. During the day, herbal teas and fresh fruit juices are also available. Alternatively, if you would like to sample the local cuisine, it can be enjoyed in any of the restaurants a short walk from the hotel.The Ayurveda Pavilions is an intimate health resort where guests embark on a journey of self-discovery in luxurious surroundings to soothe and calm the body and mind. Many of the techniques learned here can be continued back home, to offer an experience that can benefit you for years to come.

    The Ayurveda Spa

    The Destination Spa has been created around the concept of Ayurveda to offer a complete all-round treatment. The hotel employs renowned doctors, specialists in Ayurvedic therapy, to guide you in strengthening the roots of your wellbeing. The Ayurveda system is based on ‘The Knowledge of Life’, a thousand year old tradition that originates from India. Based on the presumption that health is more than the absence of illness, its gentle, holistic approach to wellbeing encompasses all areas of life. According to Ayurvedic principles, the physical body, our state of mind and energies in the environment we live in are all intertwined and have a direct influence on our state of energetic balance. Any imbalance in these energies causes discomfort or illness.All physical, mental and spiritual functions of the human body are influenced by three basic bio-energetic powers: Kapha, Vatha and Pitta. From these, a unique system of medical therapies and treatments has been developed that has proved highly effective in the treatment of chronic disease. A wide range of physical conditions can be treated by Ayurveda, for example backache and arthritis and also psychological conditions such as stress. From an aesthetic point of view, Ayurveda also offers beauty benefits like reducing the appearance of wrinkles, weight loss and promoting healthy hair and scalp. You will be treated using a selection of natural herbs, whose curative properties have undergone extensive clinical and pharmacological safety tests. Treatments are personalised according to individual needs.   

    Signature Treatments

    Shirodhara: Oil is poured on the third eye positioned in the middle of the forehead which initiates a soothing and relaxing effect to promote wellbeing. It can cure long-standing insomnia and can be effective in reducing the frequency of epileptic fits.

    Shiroabayanga: A soothing massage treatment using essential oils on the head that is said to prevent headaches, hair loss and premature greying.

    Sincro Massage: A body treatment where two therapists treat the skin to a soothing massage at the same time.

    Herbal Mask Treatment: The body is enveloped in a nourishing mask made from a selection of natural herbs in order to promote the enzymes responsible for metabolic skin processes. The treatment is designed to improve skin structure and relieve itchy, irritated skin.
