Ayurvedic spa in 200-year-old restored shopping arcade

Embellished history

The Royal Heritage Store and Spa on Chatham St is situated in a 200-year-old, almost fully restored British Colonial edifice. The interior of the space can best be described as ‘royal Ceylonese’ It denotes a grandeur dating from the Colonial era of an exotic Sri Lanka featuring Parisian windows, high ceilings and walls adorned with floral art. The ambience immediately reminds you of a tropical garden for a sense of indulgent nostalgia for a world gone by.
