Siddhalepa Health Resort to be refurbished

The Siddhalepa Ayurvedha Health Resort in Wadduwa will be closed for refurbishment from May 22 to July 1, said the Resort's Managing Director, Asoka Hettigoda.

He said the refurbishment of the resort would cost Rs. 150 million and added that the property which is currently a four star hotel will be elevated to a four star plus up-market tourist resort.

"We hope to give a complete facelift to the resort and attract more high spending travellers to one of the most sought after ayurvedic resorts in the country," Hettigoda said. The Ayurvedha Resort provides ayurvedic therapy to cleanse, detoxify and rejuvenate the mind, body and soul promoting wellness to health conscious tourists who patronise the resort.

"All rooms will be refurbished with modern facilities to provide a restful and refreshing experience to clients", Hettigoda said.

The 50-room health resort had an occupancy rate of over 90 percent from December to mid March this year which has been the best since commencing operations in 1999. "We hope to increase hotel occupancy following the refurbishment promoting the destination for medical tourism. Following the refurbishment the property would attract tourists who want to experience Sri Lankan ayurveda treatment", Hettigoda said. The Siddhalepa Health Resort set up on a six-acre land provides employment to around 200 people.

Surrounded by woodlands and meadows the resort offers restful accommodation with stunning views of the Indian Ocean.

The resort's architectural design blends with the local and ancient heritage and culture of Sri Lanka during different eras through the use of local materials and aesthetics. LF
