Every Ayurveda therapy is primarily a preventive health measure. The goal is to preserve vitality in a holistic sense and prevent an imbalance of the three doshas through Ayurveda.

At ANANDA Ayurveda Resort we only use oils and 100% plant-based herbal medicine free of heavy metals. We exclusively obtain our Ayurvedic products from certified companies in Sri Lanka.

In all our therapies, the focus is not only on your physical well-being, but also on rediscovering your own strengths, emotions, talents and your own self.

ANANDA SHAKTI THERAPY

10 days
Well-being at all levels

Fueling up on energy, unwinding, reviving and thus increasing your quality of life. This helps you prevent diseases and gain new potential for your health and vitality. Shakti means RECREATION


The ANANDA SHAKTI THERAPY is a relaxing and regenerating therapy for persons without health problems who want to recover from the stress of everyday life and gain new energy. This therapy variant does not include purgative treatments, deep cleansing or Shirodhara (pouring of liquids over the forehead). (Shirodhara will be performed in therapies of 10 days or longer.)

ANANDA PANCHAKARMA THERAPY

2 weeks
Calms the mind and detoxes the body

The central focus of this therapy is cleansing the body, which is exposed to a multitude of burdens undermining your physical as well as your emotional and mental vitality. Panchakarma means DEEP CLEANSING

The ANANDA PANCHAKARMA THERAPY consists of 3 phases and is a unique therapy program for deep cleansing, prevention and rejuvenation. Coordinated treatment methods effectively remove metabolic waste products and environmental toxins from the tissue and transport them from the organism.

At ANANDA, we use 3* out of 5 cleansing types (since we are not a hospital, we do not offer vomiting and leech therapy).

ANANDA MOKSHA THERAPY

Cleansing and stabilization all the way to the origins

In this type of therapy, the main focus is on intensity and duration of the treatment. It is used for acute and chronic diseases and conditions. Moksha means RECOVERY, RELIEF, RELEASE


The long-term therapy ANANDA MOKSHA THERAPY based on Panchakarma is recommended for chronic diseases or as a regenerative measure after surgery or chemotherapy. The Ayurvedic cleansing phase (removal of toxins and metabolic waste products) is longer in this therapy form, and additional special treatments are exactly tailored to your medical history.
