I recently spent a month in Sri Lanka. The final 8 days I chose to spend at an Ayurvedic treatment center. After searching the internet I chose Barberyn Reef as it was listed as one of the oldest authentic Ayurvedic places in S.L. I could not have been more pleased with my choice.
The people were all warm and friendly, especially the therapists giving synchronous massage.
The initial and on-going two interviews with the doctor were informative and I felt she understood my specific concerns immediately.
Foods prepared varied daily and were both delicious and authentic--very fresh and well-prepared.
Treatments were lovely (massage) and interesting (cleansing & healing)
I left feeling I want to return on an annual basis. The only difficulty for me is that it is a very long air journey from the USA to Sri Lanka. I consider this a treatment center rather than a "spa"--so people need to understand the difference. My ocean front "villa" was a delight; I loved listening to the ocean surf all day and all night.
