I was recommended two charming Sri Lankan seaside retreats, both owned by the family-run Barberyn Resorts, an award-winning pioneer of the ayurvedic retreat concept. I chose Barberyn Reef, a quaint resort near the rolling surf on the island's south-westen coast, close to the town of Beruwala.

What's your Spa Prescription
As far as the ayurvedic approach goes, Barberyn in Sri Lanka is the real deal on-site doctors, hand-made treatments concocted from the centre's own herb garden, a strict ayurvedic diet, and days which start and finish with an hour-long yoga class.

Pioneering Ayurveda tourism is Barberyn Ayurveda Resorts. Barberyn has two Ayurveda resorts along the southern coastline of Sri Lanka. One, Barberyn Reef Resort is at Beruwala, approximately 85 km from the Bandaranaike International Airport in Colombo; the other, Barberyn Beach Resort is located at Weligama, the southernmost tip of Sri Lanka, a five-hour drive from the airport.

An ayurvedic adventure Christina Patterson
I thought the beauty of the place alone would heal me. The sister resort of Barberyn Reef, the first Ayurvedic resort in Sri Lanka,
Barberyn Beach is set on a hillside overlooking a palm-fringed beach. The 15 acres of grounds have been beautifully landscaped, and the views
in every direction are stunning. Sitting on the hillside by the pool, you can gaze out at the sea and at the stilt fishermen, perched on
their spindly-looking sticks. From the moment I arrived, I was in heaven."

Spa in Sri Lanka and support its recovery
Sri Lanka's superb spa retreats are open for bussiness again following the devastation caused by last December's tsunami. And visitors to its idyllic spas will help support the country's recovery. Ulpotha and Barberyn resorts offer some of the finest native ayurvedic treatments, holistic massage, herbal steam baths and yoga on the 'Island of Serendipity' Visitors to Ulpotha - a beautiful lakeside hideaway in the rural heart of the country - will be directly supporting tsunami relief efforts through the cost of their stay. Guests staying at the Barberyn Beach and Barberyn Reef resorts will also be supporting its Sahana Foundation to tackle the poverty of local villagers and the Bodhi School Programme to improve affected school.

Detox from FESTIVITIES: writer Joan Koh (Extracts from article)
Joan Koh checks into a week-long ayurvedic retreat in Sri Lanka to discover new meaning to clean living
There's much to be said about celebrating the excesses of the season, and the penalties that must follow in order to keep your body in check. Thankfully, compensating doesn't necessarily have to be painful. With Christmas and New Year behind us, and 15 days of Chinese New Year feasting ahead, it's best to plan ahead to detox your system - and where better to do so than in Sri Lanka, as I found out.
I consider myself as living rather healthily. I've shunned red meat for seven years now and detox with a fruit-and-vegetable diet frequently. I exercise regularly and I know my aging body appreciates it, but a treat at Barberyn Reef Ayurveda Resort is something else.

A Beach is a beach . Or so you'd think. For something so universal---a stretch of sand and

A Reef-Freshing Break
At Beruwala, a long reef runs parallel to the beach for 200 meters, creating a protected
tidal lagoon like a natural salt-water swimming pool- or one big bathtub.

The Nation Newspaper, Spetembr 14,2002 - In the Explore section
Off Barberyn Reef in Sri Lanka, a resort prescribes Ayurveda, an
ancient holistic healing system, as the answer to life's many woes.
A third eye may sound like something you'd prefer to keep hidden
in the genetic closet, along with third nipples and sixth fingers,
but according to the ancient Indian mystics, this chakra located in
the centre of your forehead is a key energy point that governs the
spheres of intuition and imagination. Read More>>

E DI UN POSTO STUPENDO
by Mariacristina Vimercati
Eccomi sull'aereo. Un viaggio lungo, ma the faccio di buonumore perche
sto andando in un Paese meraviglioso dall'altra parte del mondo, davvero
esotico in ogni aspetto. Non e una vacanza qualsiasi: e un vero viaggio,
un'esperienza the colpisce nella sua fisicita sensuale, fatta di profumi,
paesaggi, sapori. E infatti, sbarcata a Colombo, mi sento un po' stordita:
come fossi completamente avvolta da una coperta di umidita al 100%,
anche se quel "calore" subito to avverto benefico per la
mia salute. E personale dell'albergo mi viene a prendere. Read
