What to expect from us

it is important for us, that our resort is and always will be an authentic Ayurveda Resort where you come to do Ayurveda to take care of your health. We want you to feel welcomed and comfortable in Isolabella. Therefore, you are free to decide how strictly you want to follow the treatment rules.

What makes us special

we are like a family. Come and you will see: everybody cares about each other and everybody is accepted exactly as he is. In Isolabella you are free to decide. Do you prefer to have your meals alone? Do you want to join other guests in a group? Do you want to stay in the resort all day long and simply relax? Or are you interested in going out to visit some sights in Sri Lanka? We promise – everything is possible!

Our resort

is located in the Southern Province of Sri Lanka, which is famous for its breathtaking beaches. You can find us in Nilwella, Dickwella, a small fishermens’ village between Matara and Tangalle.

The name

Isolabella is Italian and means beautiful island. As you will see, our resort is situated next to the coast. You can walk over a bridge of sand and explore a little island where exotic trees are growing.

The owner

of Isolabella, Flavio Barattini, is Italian and living in Sri Lanka for 19 years. He established the Ayurveda Resort in 1999 and, after renting the place for some years, is now back, living and working in Isolabella. He speaks English, German and Italian fluently. Though he is not living the ayurvedic life, the guests and the team could not imagine an Isolabella without him. He is always present in case of any questions, for an entertaining talk or simply to share “la dolce vita” in Sri Lanka.

Free time activities

In case you are interested in the Sri Lankan culture or just want to see some of the surroundings, you are free to do some excursions. In Dickwella, the closest town for example, you can find a temple with the biggest sitting Buddha statue in Sri Lanka. (With a Tuk Tuk you are there within 10 minutes.) If you feel like taking a walk, Blue Beach/Hiriketiya is a nice destination. The bay is, in contrary to the beach in front of Isolabella, a little bit more touristic and e.g. surf lessons are offered. Furthermore, we are always there to help you plan a trip to the National Park, whale- or seaturtle-watching or anything else.
