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.

  •   We stayed in a "wooden cabana" with a sea view for 4 nights. The description "wooden" isn't exactly true - the cabanas are essentially substantial grass huts with no windows, making them dark inside. There were double shuttered doors opening onto a private sitting out...More

      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

    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

      We had a perfect stay here. excellent pool, and excellent food BUT the service was outstanding. Very relaxed.Lovely long beach walks collecting cowries. Whale watching was very special - small boat, no threat to the dolphins or whales and many sightings.

      Situated adjacent to the beach at Alankuda and with the majestic wind turbines just down the sand, this is a good choice if you like quirky and rustic. The huts are set in large, well maintained grounds, with a huge infinity pool as the centrepiece....More
