Overview

Nestled within acres of lush tropical gardens, Heritance Ayurveda Maha Gedara combines luxurious accommodation and professional Ayurveda treatment facilities for a holiday that will leave you feeling revitalised and ready to face the world again. Previously the Neptune Hotel, a conventional all-inclusive beach resort, Heritance Ayurveda Maha Gedara now specialises in Ayurveda treatments to combat stress, help rejuvenation or promote weight loss. Maha Gedara means “ancestral home” –the new name was chosen because the Neptune Hotel was the first hotel built by Aitken Spence.This beach front hotel represents tranquillity at its best. This is evident from the moment you arrive, as you transfer at the gates from a car to a golf buggy that silently glides past rows of frangipane trees. at the charming Ayurveda resort. Sri Lanka has many unique local customs some of which we have incorporated into your holiday experience; for example after registering, you light a traditional brass lamp to symbolise a new beginning.

Heritance Ayurveda Maha Gedara was originally designed by local architect Geoffrey Bawa, famous for blending interior and exterior spaces, connecting buildings with the natural environment. The refurbishment carried out in 2010/2011 was handled by his student Vinod Jayasinghe.Two simple, white-arched wings frame the pool on either side, overlooking the soothing waves lapping on the beach. Decoration is elegantly minimal – perhaps stylised reliefs of palmyrah and breadfruit trees on the walls, or local tree seedlings in coconut shells on the tables.

You will spend much of your time in our specialist Ayurveda centre, where you will be treated in the calming atmosphere of the secluded treatment rooms with their own water features. Wi-Fi is provided in the hotel lobby area and there is a computer with internet connection in the library if you need it. But just because you are here for therapy doesn’t preclude gracious living. The stylish rooms and delicious but healthy food ensure that you don’t miss out on creature comforts. Never forget that you are here for a holiday, not a boot camp! And although your treatment schedule may not allow much time for excursions outside the hotel, the crafts centre lets you see artisans at work and even have a go yourself.

You will be having daily treatments, but they are usually in either the morning or afternoon, so you will be able to go out on half-day excursions if you want.You can learn what the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery is doing to help save local turtles, or go on a river trip on the Madu Ganga to see mangrove forests and prawn fishermen. Or you can see how moonstones are mined.It’s also fascinating to compare the landscaping styles of the Bawa brothers – hotel architect Geoffrey at Lunuganga and his younger sibling Bevis at Brief Garden.Slightly further afield, Galle is worth a visit for its brooding fort and boutique stores.
