“Beautiful!”
Reviewed May 26, 2009

This place is amazing & so so beautiful! we were only here for 2 days but felt we did so much. its an ayurvedic resort so there is the option of seeing the dr to see if you are suitable for any treatment. the grounds are so peacful & beautiful. everyday there is some programme/activity for guests. when we were there we went to neighbouring Galle for the afternoon & the next day they had a visit to a museum, boating on a lake & a visit to cinammon gardens. it was so lovely & the staff were absolutely amazing. they made sure everything was catered for & looked after your every need. would definitely like to go again for longer.

My fanily enjoyed the 8nts stayed which the Beach Resort kept us quite busy with ayruveda treatments and sightseeing.
We went during the special promo during low season which is
affordialble. These were mostly Europeans Guests and not so
much Americans. The Resoirt will pick up/drop offf at the airport which is included . The food is all natural and healhy, very delicious. The best part is the Salt water pool and yoga.
I recommend this Barberyn Beach Resort which is further south and away from the disturances. Very Secure and clean. Even my 21yrs old loved it and wants to go back right away!

  • Liked — Health reatments and clean secure resort, staff is very polite and very nice,
  • Disliked — There reallly not anything that I dislike about this place, I been there for about 6times.

I stayed for 2 weeks at Barberyn Beach Resort.

I came home 5lbs lighter, completely relaxed and calm.

The daily massages, acupuncture, meditation and yoga were a delight.

The hotel is set on a hillside overlooking the beach - sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down was one of the highlights of the trip.

Food - fabulous, freshly prepared, spicy and tasty (all vegetarian).

A great way to de-stress in wonderful surroundings.

I have just come back from an amazing two weeks at Barberyn Beach Resort. It's set in a stunning area of natural beauty in an unspoilt part of Sri Lanka where the people are gentle, friendly and smiling . The treatments at the resort are excellent, the staff fantastic. Nothing is too much trouble for them and you feel cared for and well looked after. And Yes, you really do get to do Yoga overlooking a stunning bay, watching stilt fishermen as the sun goes down!

One of the many optional treatments that everyone finds interesting is Shirodara which focuses on de-toxing the mind. A serious de-stressor so you come home calm and relaxed.

But of course the added bonus is renewed energy, good health and weight loss. Something that stays with you long after you leave.

I thoroughly recommend it!

A two week stay at Barberyn Beach Ayurveda Resort is the ideal way to de-tox and de-stress. Tucked away in the tiny village of Weligama, Sri Lanka, it's the antidote to a fast paced modern world. Although the journey is long (over 11 hours flying time from London Heathrow, plus a 5 hour drive from Colombo airport), it's worth it to arrive at this peaceful haven. Any jet lag is left behind as soon as you are put in the hands of the Ayurvedic doctors who prescribe a daily package of massage, herbal treatments, steam inhalation and acupuncture depending on your health problems and constitution. Food is also part of the remedy, and the healthy, vegetarian meals are also tailor made to help with any conditions. (Note: there is no coffee, meat or alcohol available). Rooms are simple and comfortable furnished in a rustic style, and are kept spotlessly clean. Many have a gorgeous sea view, and the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep. The staff are calm and can't help enough. All you have to worry about is getting to your morning yoga class, meditation session with a Buddhist monk or your daily massage. I returned to London blissfully relaxed and with a new glow.

Barberyn was a lovely experience. As a hotel, it's very pleasant. The rooms are airy, with large beds with mosquito nets, big French doors opening to the sea, and daybeds. The rooms are perched on the hillside overlooking a beach with stilt fishermen, which make for very picturesque photos.

Of course, there are also the treatments, which are held in a lovely health centre built around a pond. They take about 2.5 hours of the day -- oil massages, herbal baths, acupuncture, and special treatments. These are seamlessly coordinated with the restaurant, where your diet is regulated, and with your required medicines.

Barberyn also arranges free excursions to the surrounding towns, which should not be missed. You can also arrange for your own tuk-tuk (for about Rs 150) to a sea turtle hatchery, where you can release baby turtles into the Indian Ocean -- a spectacular experience.

The service was personal, attentive, and very genuine. It's the kind of resort where, if you get a phone call while you're out of your room, the staff will locate you in the restaurant and transfer the call there: personal, well-managed, and attentive.

The only downside is that the beach is not really for swimming. The current is strong and it's not a private beach. However, the locals are very friendly and genuine, and befriending them was one of the highlights of the trip.

Most people go for 2 to 3 weeks. It's very popular amongst Europeans. It's an even split between couples and people traveling on their own.
