The secret of health for both body and mind is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment, wisely and earnestly-Buddha

Spend a couple of minutes scrolling through travel accounts on Instagram and lush pictures of Sri Lanka are bound to appear in your feed. If social media is anything to go by, this island country on the tip of south-east India is experiencing a huge surge in popularity.

The recent trend towards mindfulness and wellbeing is seeing many spa goers embark on long haul flights in search of holistic healing and Sri Lanka has become a go to destination for rest and relaxation.

It is roughly eleven hours on a direct plane from the UK to the main Sri Lankan airport of Colombo. An hour taxi drive north, and you will find yourself at the premier Ayurvedic resort in the country, Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions. Situated in a quiet and tranquil neighbourhood close to the seaside town of Negombo, Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions boasts 23 years of experience in Ayurveda and is the place to go for holistic healing for the mind, body and soul.

Ayurveda is the ancient science of healing and dates back many thousands of years. At Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions, these ancient treatments are put into practice by trained professionals and doctors within the precincts of a beautiful and lush resort. The physical body, our state of mind and the energies in the environment we live in, according to Ayurveda, are all intertwined and have a direct influence on our energetic balance.

Designed by celebrated architect Anura Ratnavibhushana as an exclusive health retreat, guests can choose from 12 Luxury Pavilions, 16 Classic rooms with air conditioning and 8 Standard rooms with no air conditioning to ensure maximum privacy.

The resort has a stunning outdoor pool surrounded by frangipani trees and an open air yoga studio. At Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions, the world is locked out and tranquillity is locked in along with the therapeutic powers of traditional Ayurveda.

Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions features a resident ayurvedic doctor, Dinesh Edirisinghe. Devoted to his area of expertise and a firm believer of the healing powers of the traditional medicine, Dr. Dinesh at Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions directs guests through a spiritual and bodily healing process.

While all guests undergo a thorough consultation upon check-in, to design an appropriate personalised treatment programme, Dr. Dinesh has been gifted with the ability to determine the ailments of each individual simply by reading their pulse.

All the physicians and therapists at the property work under the guidance of Dr. Dinesh and are dedicated in providing guests with an in-depth ayurvedic experience. Treatments differ based on the individual’s particular ailments and the duration of their stay.

So what makes an Ayurvedic Retreat different to a spa visit? Dr. Dinesh says, “Spa treatments focus on pampering but the Ayurveda treatments are quite different – while both result in relaxation, calmness, and therapeutic relief from muscular pain and nervous tension, Ayurveda therapies go much further with the treatments being designed according to the body’s dosha. As indicated by Ayurvedic philosophies, our bodies are comprised of three doshas: vata, pitta and kapha and according to the disease the levels each of these doshas can change. Therefore, it is important to recognise the unbalanced doshas to provide the ideal treatment. Ayurveda focuses on natural cleansing to balance the dosha through the practice of specific techniques with usage of natural oils and medicines.”

There’s no buffet service, even the food is catered to the individual’s body constitution under the guidance of the doctor. Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions serve only fresh food and to give guests the feel of home they don’t maintain particular meal times. Strictly no alcohol is served in the resort. Jetwing Ayurveda Pavilions offer single option treatments, one day relaxation packages or 3-30 day treatment programmes. They also offer specific treatments for conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, and dermatitis. Treatments are designed depending on the analysis made after the first consultation. Schedules will vary and can include; ayurvedic treatments, yoga sessions, music therapy, meditation sessions and the intake of natural medicine (internal and external).

People who regularly practice Ayurveda benefit from stress relief, better sleeping patterns, invigoration of body dynamics, an energy boost, a stronger immune system, weight loss and much more.
