Villa Maritim is an oasis of wellbeing for everyone - not just guests!


The word Ayurveda is derived from two ancient Indian Sanskrit words: 'ĀYUS' - life and 'VEDA' - knowledge. It encompasses a system of traditional medicine native to India that considers each patient as a holistic combination of mind, body and soul. Vedic astronomical records prove that its methods were practised as long ago as 4,000 BC. The natural balance of the three regulatory principals - Doshas - are considered critical to sustained good health: Vata, Pitta and Kapha.


Through prevention and cure, Ayurveda aims to improve and maintain health, vitality and the joy of life. Those who actively live Ayurvedic lifestyles speak of a whole new understanding of wellbeing, tranquillity, harmony, self-satisfaction and a genuine inner peace. Delve into the world of Ayurveda - a time-out for the soul. A chance to simply sit back and let go. Let us guide you on a journey to inner peace and tranquillity.
