A beautiful hotel, nice and professional staff, perfect for a relaxing ayurveda vacation. The food is excellent, the therapists try to fulfill all special wishes to make the stay as nice as possible. I will definitely go back as soon as possible!

I stayed at the Amba Ayurveda Boutique Hotel for 14 nights in August 2016 and it simply wonderful. I traveled from my home in Miami Florida United States by myself (54 year old woman) to Sri Lanka for a soul-searching experience focused on self-improvement physically, spiritually and emotionally. It was a huge adventure for me and I was not disappointed....

We first came to Amba in December 2014. We planned to return in December 2015 but had to postpone because of a family bereavement. We were excited to return last month but with some trepidation as Christine, the former owner is no longer involved. We were delighted to see that everything is the same and that the excellent and efficient...

I can't up with anything that would have made our Ayurveda experience at Amba any better. We did the 2 weeks retreat and this place was perfect for it. This small and exclusive boutique hotel has only 10, very well designed, modern guest rooms, very tasteful communal areas, a good sized saltwater pool and is located right on the beach....

It´s just a few meters from the hotel to the beach. You cann not hear the noise of the main road. It´s a quiet place and perfect for relaxing. We loved...

Amba ayurveda is more of a medical retreat for the peoples with a bit of medical concerns.... Its a nice place to stay as its value for money only if you call them and hold the room directly as all the other online websites show the property to be very expensive... It has a nice strip of beach and has...

Came here for business but this place forced me to relax. The decor is very minimalistic, the service is superb and the food is great. The rooms are comfy with a very nice view and the whole place is very quite. I must return to this place, but on a holiday next time.

My mother and I wanted to use this Ayurveda retreat to kick start our healthy eating regime and learn a bit more about this concept.. However unfortunately we were very disappointed with our experience as apart from a 10minute consultation with the doctor the first day, there was little other opportunity to expand our knowledge. When I asked if they...
