Tracing its roots back over 3,000 years, it’s said that the knowledge of ayurveda — translated from Sanskrit as ‘the knowledge of life’ — was passed down from the gods. Ayurveda incorporates herbal medicine, minerals and natural elements, as well as meditation and yoga techniques to rejuvenate mind and body.

Even as modern medicine establishes a foothold on the island, ayurveda is still the preferred treatment for many Sri Lankans. The traditional medicine has seen a resurgence in recent times, with the practice being widely adopted across the world — not least because of its non-intrusive, natural methods.

Allying ayurveda with warm hospitality, Jetwing Hotels’ team of skilled ayurvedic physicians put into practice the treatment at its elegant resorts across the island. On the coast of Negombo, Jetwing’s first dedicated ayurvedic resort, Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions welcomes guests to a stay focused on rejuvenation. Jetwing Lagoon in Thalahena follows in the footsteps of Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions in being dedicated to the healing art.

Those seeking a stay in a landmark property while enjoying ayurvedic treatments should head to Jetwing Lighthouse in Galle. If pristine, natural surroundings are desired, Jetwing Vil Uyana in Sigiriya also offers rejuvenating ayurvedic treatments. Whether guests wish to be immersed in a complete ayurvedic holiday, or relax and rejuvenate on a tropical getaway, they’re sure to find their perfect space with Jetwing Hotels, the home of Sri Lankan hospitality.
