Arrival / Departure
The booking of your room will be done depending on arrival and departure of the airline you have chosen. Mostly, guests arrive at Colombo airport early in the morning or forenoon. Our driver will meet you at the airport and drive you safely via the new highway to the Kingdom Ayurveda Resort. Usually, all guests will have a relaxing “Welcome Massage”, depending on flight times on the day of arrival or a soothing “Say Good-Bye-Massage” on the day of departure. The first consultation will usually take place after a quiet night in the morning after the day of arrival. Then you have already acclimatized a bit. Two days before your return trip, Mr. Lal organizes your transfer back to the airport. The passenger is responsible for himself for the timely check-in and boarding, and therefore we schedule enough time for the transfer. You will be picked up at the resort approximately six hours before departure.

Classic Panchakarma treatment
Stay of 4 weeks and more / less than 27 nights
During this time, the medical team together with the therapists access back to the full range of Panchakarma treatments. The timeframe allows gentle preparation for the cleansing day and leaves enough room for a rising, intensive strengthening phase. Mostly, first successes occur immediately, deep noticeable improvement arise within the last quarter of the treatment.
The day after your arrival, our Ayurveda doctor does an intensive check-up using different methods such as the pulse diagnosis, tongue- and iris diagnosis. An experienced Ayurveda doctor can determine precisely by checking the pulse in what state your Doshas are and where there is an imbalance. He will determine in an interview as well as the assessment of your physical characteristics such as skin, hair and finger nails your constitutional type. In addition, doctors also ask for your environment you live in. On this basis, they create an individual treatment plan precisely patient-tailored.
This treatment is fascinating as our “Vaidya” –the Ayurveda doctor– almost does not use medical instruments to make this diagnosis. The main task of our doctors consists of selecting of the wealth of possible treatments of the Panchakarma therapy that suits you. The therapy will be monitored daily during the treatment and as needed will be adapted in case of changes during the treatment. Thus, we ensure that every guest receives all available sorts of healing treatments.
We offer our guests an authentic and traditional Ayurveda treatment and distinguish us positively from many other resorts on Sri Lanka.
