Revitalizing your body and soul with Adithya Ayurveda in the Cultural Capital of Sri Lanka

Surrounded by the ancient glorious ruins created by Sri Lankan ancestors, Adithya Ayurveda is located in the heart of Sri Lanka’s first capital city of Anurdhapura. Blending in with the ancient secrets of ayurveda from the past, Adithya provides authentic ayurvedic care to those who seek physical and mental rejuvenation for any minor physical ailments. 

Adithya Ayurveda takes care of the guests total wellbeing by providing all three meals which are served at the recommendations made after the guests first diagnosys made by the doctors. The ayurveda resort offers 24 cozy rooms, with modern amenities to provide a comfortable stay whilst serving herbal, non-alcoholic beverages throughout the day which guests can enjoy by the pool. 

The herbal medicine used to treat patients are made by the hotel’s own factory, whilst the herbal ingredients are sourced by the hotel’s herbal garden which is just half an hour away. Guests are provided with the opportunity to pay a visit to the medicine factory and the herbal garden, whilst being able to observe the traditional methods used to prepare these ayurvedic treatments. We recommend guests to spend a minimum of 5 nights at the resort to experience a full mind and body relaxation through the resort’s various treatments and yoga sessions.


Our policy in discouraging Animal Cruelty, Tourist Traps and Staged Tourist Shows

Animals Are Friends Too: Discouraging Animal Cruelty, Tourist Traps and Staged Tourist Shows

We at ExJ stay away from tourism experiences that are staged and involve animal cruelty and shopping traps that are contrived to exploit and deceive clients.

Even though some of the popular ‘attractions’ are not included in our programmes due to the above reasons, we have no objections in our clients making their own arrangements with our Drivers to visit these places.


Why we do not promote following attractions


Turtle Hatcheries

As this concept has serious negative aspects in terms of conservation, we do not encourage our visitors to patronize the turtle hatcheries, as not all of them are really turtle-friendly. We instead encourage them to observe turtles in their natural habitats.

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage

When we became aware that the animal welfare standards there were questionable, we stopped encouraging our clients to visit the orphanage. We are pleased to observe that the Born Free Foundation has now adopted similar measures.

Elephant back rides – Habarana

There’s uncertainty surrounding the attitude of this place towards animal welfare. There may be a few ethical operators, but in general, we are not in agreement with how the place is run. We all would love a photo of us riding an elephant, but is a lifetime of pain caused to these magnificent mammals really worth a few fleeting likes on social media?

Traditional Village Tour with a Canoe Trip and Bullock-Carts – Habarana

This is a tourist trap where a lot of the trip is ‘staged’ for commercial purposes. Such fake touristic experiences will not give our visitors an idea of what life in the country is really like, so join us as we show you the real side of Sri Lanka. And at the end of every vacation, always ask yourself, “Did you feel that your holiday was ethical, eco-friendly, and reduced environmental impacts?”
