Ayurveda is followed by millions of people in Sri Lanka and across the globe as a holistic approach to health and well-being.

Snorkeling in Kalpitiya
The reef in Talawila is one of the best places to go on snorkeling in Kalpitiya. From December to March, when the sea is calm in the mornings, it is the ideal time to head out to Talawila reef for some nice early morning snorkeling. Best time to snorkel is even before breakfast. A wonderful way to start your day. However because of the rising ocean temperatures and global warming, a lot of corals died in late 2016. They are about to recover but it takes time for the reef to gain back its full beauty. It will however be an amazing experience to walk to Talawila early morning, enjoy a beautiful sunrise, go on snorkeling and come back to Elements for a hearty breakfast, prepared with locally sourced ingredients by our lovely staff. At Talawila, you can also make a quick trip to the famous St. Anne’s Church.
