Shirodhara

Shirodhara is a form of Ayurveda therapy that involves gently pouring liquids over the forehead and can be one of the steps involved in Panchakarma. The name comes from the Sanskrit words shiro (head) and dhara (flow).

The client lies on a specially designed table. A wide mouthed vessel with a small hole at the bottom is hung above the head of the client, so that the wick hanging from the vessel is about two inches above the forehead. The special medicinal oil, milk, or buttermilk, etc, that is poured into the vessel is made to flow in a continuous stream through the wick on to the upper part of the forehead. The eyes are protected with cotton pads to prevent oil from dripping into them. The warm oil or other medium used, is collected, kept at a constant warm temperature, and re-circulated, and the process continues for 60 to 90 minutes depending on the Dosha. On completion of the flow of oil, the client is allowed to rest for a few minutes, before the residual oil is wiped from the hair. The client can then dress and go home and it is recommended to rest quietly for at least a few hours.

Beautiful, relaxing hidden gem

Wow! This was an amazing place to spend a few nights. It really is a hidden gem away from the hectic town. Its like a little riverside paradise. Im almost nervous to review this place as i would hate for it to become too popular and ruin its tranquility!

We stayed in this hotel on 26.11.2018 with family. The hotel is just on the bank of Bentota river and beautiful location. The rooms are very nice, big, net & clean. It looks like a garden and they are having the water sports facility but I don't know about it's price reason ability.It is having small swimming pool also.

The most friendly & welcoming place

The rooms are relatively spacy, so are the balconies. The restaurant has a menue with great variances - very good when you stay at the place for a while. In addition the kitchen is very flexible to make exactly the dishes you wish, with 'withs' and 'withouts'.
