In 2011, the Italian Caterina Barcheri opened the Kingdom Ayurveda Resort and completely renovated the resort in 2015. She follows her vision to provide her guests a deeply penetrating Ayurveda treatment at one of the most beautiful places in the south of the island previously untouched by tourism. Human beings are full of energy and charisma and can meet all challenges of life when body, mind and soul sound in unison and meet with the rhythm of nature.
Therefore, a familiar hospitality has a top priority for Caterina and the well-being of guests in their time at this beautiful resort is very important to her. She comes across all people in their Resort with great affection and respect. Caterina also takes the time for her guests, because this liaison means balance and relaxation of the everyday hotel management. She loves daily yoga classes with Niroshana, our experienced yoga teacher. Her employees appreciate her balanced boss as well as her open and friendly nature. Caterina knows how important a good working environment is for a successful Ayurveda Resort. She is listening to any request patiently and attentively and finds a solution for all challenges.
Since years, Mr. Nawurunnagei Jayalath Lal has been working in the hotel business and gained significant experience in the field of hospitality services during his numerous trips abroad. He speaks fluent English, Italian and Dhivehi (Maldivian language). As a manager at the side of Caterina, here at the Kingdom Ayurveda Resort he has now found his life’s work and is the good spirit of the house. The contact with the foreign guests makes him a lot of fun. With its open and charming nature, he very quickly conquers the hearts of all guests of the resort and his smile immediately puts up the sun in the hearts of our guests. He likes to meet the diverse needs, e.g. special tips for exquisite shopping trips, the planning of smaller excursions to nearby attractions or explanations about religion and culture of his homeland. Our Mister Lal knows the habits of the island very well and he is always happy to help our guests.
We would like our interational guests to enjoy an unforgettable stay at our health resort in an extraordinary atmosphere. This is the guiding principle for all employees at our resort. Room service, including the entire house laundry is done by Karunaseehli and Kusumalatha blameless since the opening reliably. The workload is enormous, but there is still enough time for a smile for every guest. The service in the restaurant and the kitchen take Ushan and Ishan with great calm and restraint and genuine friendliness. Our gardener Piyathilaka sensitively takes care of our neat garden. He helps you to put the sun lounger in the shade or protects the guests from little rain showers. Our Resort Security Nimal is responsible for your safety.
