Massage, Yoga, and Mind-Body Healing on an Ayurveda Holiday
Combine yoga and Ayurveda, a system of natural healing and massage, on a wellness holiday to India or Sri Lanka. Scenic settings, healing Ayurvedic bodywork and the exceptional hospitality of South Asia make for a special kind of wellness holiday.
Ayurveda is rooted in 5,000-year-old Indian cultural traditions. Its massages and medicinal treatments are known to reduce stress and help achieve a healthy and vibrant state of being. India is also the spiritual home of yoga, and a range of luxury resorts offer holidays that include Ayurvedic treatments and yoga. Enchanting Travels can book you a holistic healing holiday and combine it with a bit of sightseeing, to add authentic local flavor. Different Ayurvedic resorts offer a unique range of services. Our experts know what they are and can help you select the one that matches your needs.
In the state of Kerala, Ayurveda resorts are situated in stunning locations. On the languid backwaters, resorts like Punnamada, Carnoustie, and Coconut Lagoon combine oodles of character with outstanding services. The state’s gorgeous beaches are a sight for sore eyes. Taking advantage of their perfect coastal location are resorts like Nattika and Marari Beach Resort. For a different vibe, Spice Village in the verdant hills of the southern Western Ghats near Thekkady offers Ayurveda in an environment of aromatic spice and herb gardens. Alternatively, there is Ananda in the Himalayas, which is great for massages, spa treatments and yoga, and learning how to attain a harmonious and balanced life.
Sri Lanka has numerous retreats where Ayurveda is the mainstay. Siddhalepa Ayurveda Health Resort is attached to an Ayurveda hospital and focuses on providing therapeutic treatments. At Lotus Villa digital detox is given priority. Dalmanuta Gardens is more about an intimate and private wellness experience, while Heritance Ayurveda Resort is large but friendly, and exclusively about curative and preventive Ayurveda treatments. Shunyata Villa and Lanka Princess, both under German management, offer holidays aimed at balancing mind, body, and soul.
Your personal wellness goal may be geared for complete overhaul, or a quiet detox and unwind. Through the wisdom inherent in the ancient practice of Ayurveda you’ll find a powerful tool to make your holiday one of peace, healing, and transformation.

I cannot imagine being without Enchanting Travels for my first trip to India. With new and different things to acclimate to and customs I was not privy to, ET made my journey a breeze. I was able to see and enjoy the entirety of all places visited without worrying about tickets and transfers and luggage and hotels and anything that might take me away from being “in the moment”. Usually one fourth of my trip is spent making arrangements but not so with Enchanting Travels as it is all done for you. Kudos to ET.
