It is over 40 years now since we welcomed our first guests at Barberyn. It is wonderful for us to see so many people - and now their children - coming to stay with us, time and again.

Over the year, we've also received some beautiful comments and suggestions.On this page, we want to share some of these comments with you.

This is our first trip to Sri Lanka and our first Ayurveda experience and we are enjoying it to the fullest. And all the more since the staff are so welcoming, smiling and efficient. We are convinced our health and well being will benefit from your Ayurveda expertise. We will make sure that more French speaking people become aware of this little paradise.

Mr. Jean Lonis

For the 5th time I am enjoying Ayurveda but treatment and hotel is best here in Barberyn. I think, I’ve found my place.

It was a wonderful healing experience. Barberyn Reef Resort is “Ayurveda”- wisdom of life in every aspect! I learned a lot. Especially from people in all departments.Thank you very much. I will visit again soon.

Best Regards,

Mrs. Van DijkAltine

I enjoyed every minute of my holiday at the Barberyn. People are friendly, caring and compassionate. The yoga classes were a dream so was the Tai chi. The Ayurveda treatment made me relaxed and I forgot all the stress of my busy life! The restaurant service excellent and the food delicious. Not to forget the beautiful location.

I am looking forward to my next visit and next time it will be for 3 weeks!
Thanks to all the wonderful staff at Barberyn.

October 2005 – I spend three weeks with Ayurveda in Weligama Barberyn Beach. It was a wonderful experience.

October 2010 – together with my wife Geanette we spend three weeks with Ayurveda treatment in Beruwela Barberyn Reef.

October 2011 – we will come back, probably four weeks

Why we want to come back?

It is really an excellent place for health and to make good new friends. Many thanks to the whole staff – reception, health centre, kitchen, etc.

It is first time for me and my mom in your country.
First my mom was hesitating of going to the country so far from Kazakastan.
But now we decided to come back to the place of paradise – Barberyn.
We would like to thank special thanks to all people who made our staying here amazing. There is no word to express our gratitude to the best treatment, best food and best people.
Thanks to all – doctors, receptionists, Yoga teachers, cooks – to everybody.

And see you in 2011!!!

Gulvira & Maria Kazakastan
P.S – we are going back home healthy!

I stayed at Barberyn Reef Resort around a week. My friend who had stayed here strongly recommended to stay at this resort. She was right!! Staff is very friendly and helpful I felt always welcomed with their smile. Treatment was very professional and I was relaxed. Treated like a princess in the herbal bath with the lady pouring the warm water from my upper body, arm, legs n toes. Nowhere else I would get this treatments. Incredible hospitality!!
The food is excellent!! Was amazed only with vegetables various dishes have been created, and most importantly it was delicious! Healthy too. I am very much looking forward to cooking classes on Monday.
The room was kept clean always and was given hot water and mosquito mat everyday. First time in Sri Lanka, and will not be the last time. Thank you so much for your hospitality!!

Ms. Ayako Tsuchida

Mr. Philip Anderson

It has been our third visit to Barberyn and we have enjoyed as always very much. Food and the treatment was exquisite. Staff and the doctors have been more than helpful, and they made our stay very enjoyable. We hope to come here for the 4th time.

Heartfelt thanks to all at Barberyn for a wonderful stay & a magical experience- this place has that special energy that creates connection - with ones spiritual self, with others, with life (for we anyway!)

Shauagh Darling Robertson

It was so a nice time to stay here with all the treatments the cooking and the services. We like to be at this wonderful resort with the friendly people. We would like to come again and again


After a long journey and many travels to exotic and beautiful places I found something very special. Inside I felt like a piece of Flotsam and Jetsun worked up on the beach after the storm. This inner turmoil has been calmed and re joined because of the nurturing and nourishment to every part of my being. Even the parts that resisted and held on to the old habits. There is so much kindness, honesty and integrity in the very foundation of this place. All who work here are so generous and giving. So much to thank you all for, from a very grateful and rested traveler.
