Ayurveda has been a part of Sri Lanka since the ancient years and has a prominent role in most medical and therapeutic treatments until now.
Ayuh is life, Veda is science, and thus, the name Ayurveda defines as the science of life. Ayurveda in Sri Lanka has flourished over the years and people use it now more than ever, as it is a way of life for many people, just like how it used to be in 600 BC in most South Asian countries.
Originating in India more than 3,000 years ago, Ayurveda is a welcome option for most, when compared to the costs and side effects of modern medicine. Spas too, use Ayurveda in their healing and relaxing therapies, and in places like Amba Ayurveda Boutique Hotel, they focus on the whole hotel experience being around Ayurveda, be it food, spas or exercises.
Why you should go
If you ever feel like you need a breather from life and its stress and toxins, the best place to check yourself into for the long weekend is an Ayurveda focused hotel. Ayurveda focuses on restoring the balance of a person’s body by aligning the 3 doshas or vital forces together, namely, the Vayu, Pita, and Kapha.
