Ayurveda has been practiced in India for over 5,000 years. It's massage and healing treatments are known for reducing stress and aiding in the attainment of a healthy, lively state of being. India is also the spiritual birthplace of yoga, and a number of luxury resorts offer Ayurvedic treatments and yoga as part of their vacation packages. On a conscious vacation to India or Sri Lanka, it is deeply beneficial to combine yoga and Ayurveda, a system of natural treatment and massage. South Asia's great hospitality, scenic landscapes, and soothing Ayurvedic bodywork make for an ultimate wellness holiday.

Resorts that has instilled Ayurveda in their services can be found in beautiful spots around Kerala, India. Punnamada, Carnoustie, and Coconut Lagoon, all on the lazy backwaters, combine lots of charm with great service. The state's beautiful beaches are a sight to behold and one that lingers. Resorts like Nattika and Marari Beach Resort take use of their ideal seaside position. Spice Village, amid the beautiful hills of the southern Western Ghats near Thekkady, offers Ayurveda in a setting of aromatic spice and herb gardens for a different mood. Ananda in the Himalayas, on the other hand, is ideal for massages, spa treatments, and yoga, as well as learning how to live a peaceful and balanced existence.

The practice of Ayurveda is the mainstay of several retreats in Sri Lanka. The Siddhalepa Ayurveda Health Resort is affiliated with an Ayurveda hospital and specialises in therapeutic treatments. Digital detox is a top priority at Lotus Villa, Bentota. Dalmanuta Gardens focuses on a more intimate and private health experience, whereas Heritance Ayurveda Resort is vast but welcoming, and focuses solely on curative and preventative Ayurveda therapies. Shunyata Villa and Lanka Princess, both managed by Germans residing in Sri-Lanka, provide vacations that strive to balance the mind, body, and soul for a much-needed reset experience.

Immersion in ancient wisdom will give traveller’s an insight on a country's culture and history rooted in healing practices for a healthier lifestyle. Every individual’s personal wellness objective would be different to one another. For some it could be a comprehensive makeover and for others it could be a peaceful detox with downtime. It is possible to make the individual experience one of calm, healing and transformation with the knowledge inherent in the ancient practice of Ayurveda.
