Spa

Spa

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest and the most complete system of natural healing, originally found in the sacred writings of Hinduism, the Vedas written over 5000 years ago. Throughout history, people of different cultures have associated minerals, crystals and metals with physical, mental and emotional healing powers. A chakra is believed to be an energy centre, and at Galapita we use gems of the appropriate colour, and ayurveda, for the treatment of chakras, to get rid of various ailments or as a preventive measure.

At galapita rare herbs are grown in nurseries and planted in protected pockets of the forest, and harvested as and when required, while enriching the biodiversity around us. All medicinal herbs are lovingly hand blended according to ancient recipes, recorded on Ola manuscripts, and passed down through generations. Galapita Healing Garden Mineral Spa provides the ultimate in indulgence by gracious staff in a beautiful setting.

Forest Garden

The moment you enter the forest garden through the rustic door you are filled with a sense of return to nature. At the core of the garden is Rathri Weva where Eagles come to fish and Peacocks come to nest at night. Vairodi Maluwa (Cats eye) the ecological Villa is nestled by the meandering River with a splendid view of Galapita Gala (rock on a rock) over the rice fields.

Another attraction in the garden is Agasti Gallery showcasing rare Mineral specimens glittering jewels, fragrant spices, natural Gems and Terracotta artifacts from a bygone era.

Secret Garden

If you cross the Ridge, stepping over the swaying bridge you reach the Secret Garden in the River Island. At the heart of the garden is a rock pool sculptured by the rhythm of the gem river since the dawn of time. Around the contours of the rock pool are five sleeping pavilions and Navaratna Lounge is where nutritious meals made with fresh ingredients on wood fires and served on banana leaves.

Healing Garden

If Secret Garden is the heart, Healing Garden is the soul of Galapita. This vibrant forest is home to exotic birds and rare "flying squirrels" that play in the forest canopy from dusk to dawn. Mystical healing garden is sprinkled with tree houses, Yoga and Aruveda shalas among groves of Frangipani, Palmyrah and lotus ponds.
