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.

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.

Karmic paradise: writer Sue Derwent (Extracts from article)
A health hotspot with a difference, Barberyn Beach resort in Sri Lanka is home to the ancient practice of Ayurveda, advocating harmonious balance.
Back in 1968, long before Ayurveda started becoming popular in the west, MrSudano Rodrigo used his foresight and founded Barberyn reef resort, it was the first resort in Sri Lanka to provide authentic Ayurvedic healing holiday. And treatment to foreign guests. The Rodrigo family still runs the resort and recently opened the magnificent Barberyn beach resorts at Weligama, further south from the capital Colombo among the coastal Galle Road.
Places such as Barberyn have become increasingly popular just as Ayurveda and more holistic forms of medicine and health have gained credibility in the west. Ayurveda philosophy respect for human individuality and believe s that each persons health is made up of the harmonious interactions of the body, the mind and the living environment.

Welligama Wellness Holiday: escritor Chami Jotisalikorn (Extractos del artículo)
On a spectacular beach in Sri Lanka an unusual healing resort offers more than a suntan.
Chami Jotisilikorn reports on the amazing effects of an all-natural Ayurvedic holiday.
"This is my third time doing a detox holiday at Barberyn resorts, and what keeps me coming back,
in addition to getting detoxed, is that I always meet interesting people on every visit."
The resort in Weligama is the second property in the resort group.
The original property is located up the coast in Beruwala, 80 km from Colombo. It was founded
36 years ago by Sudana Roderigo at a time when healing resorts were virtually unheard of. Over
the years Barberyn has built a strong reputation and a loyal following of return guests
through word of month.
Authentic Ayurveda healing is the total integration of individual diagnosis, daily traditional
treatments by trained professionals, the correct diet and proper medications. These provide a
holistic life style that's best experienced in a dedicated environment. When this environment
is a spectacular beach setting, it only helps to speed the total healing process.

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.

Surinder Phull dips a well pampered toe in the tropical waters of a Sri Lankan Ayurveda retreat
Determined to find a destination where saluting the sun was not part of a military drill, I embarked on a tedious trawl through health websites and search engines. Finally I found what seemed like my dream destination, the Barberyn reef resort in Sri Lanka. This was a bit further than I had planned for a seven day trip but images of guests being submerged in herbal baths, tropical fruits and hot oil massages were simply too much to resists.
