Sri Lankan spa uses 'science of life'
Ayurveda means the ‘science of life’ in Sanskrit and it’s one of the core philosophies embraced at Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle Resort. The resort is a destination retreat that sits on a golden-hued beach fringed by coconut palms overlooking the roaring Indian Ocean.
It’s here, in these tranquil surrounds, that the Ayurvedic principles based on the ancient health and wellness philosophy and practice native to India and Sri Lanka are embraced to restore body and mind. The Inner Harmony Ayurveda Program is designed to restore emotional and spiritual balance and encourage mindful practices.
Meditate on nature
Guests at the resort can learn how meditation in a paradise free from distractions clears the mind and contemplate life while in a Buddhist temple. Guests can also join painting workshops with local artisans. The specialist treatments on offer are all designed to calm your nervous system, generate positive energy and peace. Leave empowered by life coaching tools, take away sleep and nutritional tips and an informative record of your unique dosha constitution.
Located on Sri Lanka’s stunning southern coast, Anantara Peace Haven Tangalle has designed four personalised seven-day Ayurvedic programs. There’s ‘Inner Harmony’ for emotional and spiritual balance, ‘Deep Sleep’ for relaxation and recovery, ‘Natural Weight’ for healthy weight management, and a ‘Rebuilding Detox’ for detoxifying while rebuilding your natural energy.
The tropical sanctuary overlooking the ocean is located near the old fort town of Tangalle overlooking the roaring waves of the Indian Ocean. In addition to the Ayurvedic treatments on offer at the Anantara Spa, guests can explore the island’s rainforest, sites of pilgrimage and local fishing ports. Guests can dine cliffside, undertake a surf lesson or adventure – all the while using the secluded luxury resort, set within a coconut plantation on a white sandy beach, as a base.
Peace and pilgrimage
Guided by the resident doctor of Ayurveda, each journey is entirely holistic, focusing on self-awareness and reflection, nutrition, and bespoke therapies, through personal consultations, life-coaching sessions, customised Ayurvedic and spa treatments and enriching local experiences such as temple visits. We can’t think of a better place to get our lives in balance. tangalle.anantara.com
