Ayugiri encapsulates the essence of life, inspired by the lotus flower held by the graceful queens of the infamous Sigiriya frescoes. Just as the lotus emerges from the murky depths, untainted and serene,

Ayugiri invites guests on a journey of purity and rejuvenation, harmonised with a balance of mind, body and spirit, the essence of nature, echoes of culture and the wisdom of ancient Ayurvedic healing.

Traversing through Ayugiri's detox paths, wandering along butterfly trails and relaxing in tree huts, alongside naturally-made yoga and meditation spots, travellers will undoubtedly witness a serene and immersive experience amidst nature's embrace.
