See, feel, love Palagama Beach

See, feel, love Palagama Beach

Most resorts are artificial. Closed off security walls, rows of sun loungers,
where’s the authenticity? Where’s that connection you feel inside?

Forget typical hotels. Discover a truly unique Sri Lankan experience at Palagama Beach.

We have redefined the holiday concept. The vision of world-renowned designer Cecil
Balmond OBE and his son John was simple – to create beautiful, sustainable living spaces, blending traditional Sri Lankan design with a touch of the contemporary.

Palagama Beach is a ‘village’ of 16 cabanas and villas nestled in the heart of the
peninsular. Everything here is designed to bring you back to nature, from the eco-
Cajun and illuk roofs, to the rugged coastline and luscious greenery.

We know how precious your holiday is. You need to have everything just the way you like it. To us you’re a person, not a number. That’s why we offer a variety of lovingly designed homes, each with its own charm and character, as well as a range of activities (Dolphin watching anyone?) to connect you with this beautiful island.

At Palagama Beach time fades away. It’s just you, tranquility and Sri Lanka’s natural beauty.

  •   First the good news. Lovely staff, helpful to a fault. We came for dolphin watching, and it is superb. The boats come right to the beach, so you just kick off your sandals, don a life jacket and its about half an hour's ride out...More

      Your reward after a 3hr drive from Colombo Airport is a secluded slice of paradise. Looking out at the empty golden beach and the deep blue sea from the wooden deck of your Robinson Crusoe style hut, mass tourism seems very far away. You find...More

      If you want to experience a great beachside cabanas this is the place. Great to experience living in a traditional building and we loved the outside shower. The staff are fantastic and the food superb. A very relaxing place.

  •   We were here just after the terrible events of Easter 2019 and by the end of our stay were the only people in the hotel. We were made to feel safe and welcome and the staff were incredibly helpful.

    As a family of 4 we had a cabana/villa with two rooms joined by an external veranda and so had plenty of space. The rooms were a little dark but the semi-open bathrooms were bright and airy. The pool is lovely and whilst the beach isn’t perhaps the white sands of brochures, it is very near and we had a lot of fun playing in the warm sea and waves. The pool is perfect for relaxing by and the kids had a lot of fun in it. We liked the food very much and found is more reasonably priced than elsewhere with a menu rather than set meals.The crab curry was delicious. There is not much else nearby and so this is a good spot for a few days relaxation - though tours whale watching etc are available. More

      My third visit to palagama was as fantastic as my previous stays
    My daughter and I spent four nights at the laid back resort
    What a relaxing place so authentic and unassuming
    And virage and his team could not do enough for us
    We were pampered from beginning to end
    Thanks again virage and all the crew
    Hope to be back soon

      Palagama beach is very small, almost shabby, but its so beautiful, and incredibly relaxing that any possible flaws are forgotten in minutes. We stayed for 4 nights and just forgot about the rest of the world! The staff are fabulous and very friendly, and the...More
