I was staying at the resort for 2 weeks for the panchakarma program. I can definitely say, that it is the best place, where I lived during my almost 3 weeks stay in Sri Lanka. Key things to highlight: The location: The resort is located quite close to the airport, so it is very convenient if you arrive with a long flight. The place is built on a peaceful riverside, surrounded by the nature: exotic trees plants, birds and jumping chipmunks. Once in a while you hear the sound of passing by trains, but it is not very often. The facilities: my villa was very comfortable! Everything is designed and equipped so perfectly to help you to relax. Your can enjoy the quiet evenings on the porch of your villa and the sounds of nature around you. The house itself and the furniture is made of the natural wood, so that complements the overall treatment process. The treatments and foods are coordinated and customised according to your dosha/constitution type. The quality of the treatments, that you have 3 hours per day, is very professional . The attitude of the doctor and the therapists is very personal to your needs and issues. You feel in good and kind hands. The personnel in the kitchen and restaurant is amazing, the food was so delicious and fresh, cooked with the local ingredients. They explain, what is prepared for you an also showed the cooking process. The doctor showed us the plants in the local gardens and told about the effect of the herbs on the health. The morning yoga lessons were also provided. There were not a lot of guests at the resort during my stay, as Sri Lanka tourism is still slowly recovering after pandemic. It is quite sad, as so many people still miss this unique experience. This place fulfilled my expectations 100% and even more.If your focus not just on having standard holidays, but primarily on your health, well being and recovery, that we all need now in this world, it is a perfect place to come for. You will feel a new version of yourself. I am very thankful to all people, who work in Karunakarala and made me feel so good!…
If you want to experience a traditional Ayurvedic experience including various treatments and meals, I can recommend this place in Sri Lanka. It’s a beautiful place with lovely people where you can really relax and slow down while staring at a jungle river. And the people can use the business, they are still recovering from the global lockdown.
The services and treatments are super and experienced practitioners are taking care of guests. I will visit this place again. This is my second visit. After the given massage sure you will feel better. The Yoga session with the practitioner is very nice in promising
Good hotel with relaxed location. Rooms are good. Staff are friendly and helpful. Foods are good and healthy and with good tests. Good landscaping with many green environment. Have good aruvadic package’s for guests. River is adjoining.
Please do not stay here my husband and I got robbed in this hotel. The camera recordings were deliberately stopped minutes before we left the cabin and there was no manager around to sort the problem and this was around 7 pm.very unprofessional and irresponsible. Please becareful.
I was there for one night as I was traveling to Sri Lanka and had to quarantine. Staff was extremely friendly. Service was wonderful. The place itself was calm and soothing and beautiful. Amal was one of the staff members I was in touch with before I land in Sri Lanka and he helped me a lot planning my stay. It was my first time going to Karunakarala resort and I wasn't sure what to expect. I was happy that I made the right choice selecting my stay. Yuka was one of the other staff members and she was very helpful and always had a smile on her face. They gave me one of the cottage and it was really nice. Big enough and nicely cleaned. Overall I was happy with their services and my stay there.
I stayed here 13 nights and it was extremely nice. This place is so peaceful, clean and everything you expect and beyond. All the staff extremely welcoming, very friendly ,very helpful and always there to help. Food was excellent and I was very impressed that they provide variety of healthy foods and it suits everyone's taste preferences. My travel agent and her MD recommended this place and I am very thankful to them also for providing me one of the best places to stay and enjoy such beautiful entertainment with lots of nature involved. I have recommended this place to most of my friends so that they can also experience the great place like this with lovely ambience.
