5/5 Excellent

Staff delightful, good chef, great breakfast choices. Accommodation quite quaint and possibly a little tired but perfectly comfortable and very private. Fantastically relaxing place and a good pool. The margaritas were excellent but bar not well stocked. We loved it - we stayed five nights at the end of a four week trip which had been pretty hectic so we very much appreciated the peace and quiet

Away from the crowds

With a direct view of the sunset over the infinity pool, this isolated resort, built by a famous architect, will make you want to stay longer. Spa services, delicious food, helpful staff, comfortable natural building materials will charm you. Don’t miss it!

Beautiful and peaceful in every way

We arrived tires, having biked 90km to get there, and were immediately set at ease by the kind staff. We were provided with a lovely and spacious cabin upgrade with a king sized bed and hot water showers. Out stay continued to get better. Swimming in both the infinity pool and the lovely ocean beaches. An excellent choice of drinks at the lovely bar. The best food ever! The staff helped us plan our activities, including Ayurvedic massage treatments at their spa. We could have stayed a week!

With the effort to get there!

Host Denzil was very accommodating with our very late arrival and early departure. He arranged the drivers both ways for seamless transport. Ours was a short stay so we did not get to check out the park safari - but will deff return for that. Palagama Beach is a wonderful refuge from daily life - the pool, lounge and restaurant are delightful - lovely a la carte menu and the best Margaritas in all of Asia! The shaded cabanas round the pool are the perfect place to catch the sea breeze and lounge away an afternoon. Lovely a la carte menu and the best Margaritas in all of Asia! Minnie the resident dog is an important contributor to a friendly, comfortable atmosphere. Shirodhara and head massage treatments from Rohan at the spa could very well become addictive!

Perfect honeymoon destination

We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of our honeymoon in Sri Lanka. We had a wonderful stay. The beach cabana was lovely. The food was a very enjoyable mix of Sri Lankan and Western cuisine. The staff were very helpful and made it very easy to arrange activities such as dolphin watching and safari.
