Some of the more popular options include Vil Uyana’s island spa set amidst a lotus-filled waterway, Amaya Lake’s Ayurvedic spa which promises the best in soothing traditional treatments while surrounded by the sounds of nature and Amangalla’s spa baths set in the city of Galle in the South seeped in 17th century Dutch architecture.
