“Relaxation and relaxation”
Reviewed August 31, 2011

The hotel is an ancient ayurvedic health resort. That we benefited from. The place has a wise old doctor who is pretty sharp to make a diagnosis. I have long suffered from severe stress and have not slept more than 3 - 4 hours during a night the last 4 years. After treatment in one day, I slept like a baby, and I still do. Staffs are well qualified and do their best that you should be comfortable and the doctor looks into the treatment room to make sure that everything is done correctly.

The hotel staff will make sure you get the diet the doctor has prescribed at the right times. We were woken at 7.00 with the first meal and then went in quick succession. You can disconnect from the brain and just enjoy being pampered in every way.
On top of that, the surroundings fits perfectly with the peace and quiet you need when you are on a pampering trip.

One thing we noticed and rejoiced that all staffs were helping each other when needed, so the atmosphere was always friendly and calm. You can feel that clearly as a guest

Unfortunately we had only time to 4 days of treatment but still we could feel a difference and was now ready to go home to our everyday lives with a prescription for a better lifestyle.
We will definitely return to Nooit Gedacht

After we have been round the island with all its hustle and bustle. A lot of people wanting money from you, and have met the government’s “conomic apartheid” at all the “must see” we thought that the original Sri Lankan kind- and friendliness was despaired.

But it´s not – as soon as you reach Hotel Nooit Gedacht, your shoulders fall into level again. Here you find peace and quiet surroundings, the staff are smiling and really kind. When you have been here for a couple of days, it feels so must like family that you almost forget to pay.

The buildings are breathing with history, and the new wing, we was in, fit nicely in. Our room ws really nice with a view to a little lake full with waterlilies. In the big garden there are a lot of wild animals. Every day we got fresh flowers in our room and cleaning was perfect. The food is freshly prepared and to absolute prices.
