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.



Every one of our 16 homes is custom designed, seamlessly blending with the natural
landscape. Beach cabana? Garden villa? Al fresco shower? Find the right place for you.

Holidays are all about quality ‘me’ time. But every person is different. Some like to chill, others are always on the go. We have spa treatments, dolphin watching, Wilpattu safari, yoga, cooking classes, fishing, bike rides,…even a home cinema.



  •   enjoyed many sunsets during our stay in Kalpitiya. the water is friendly to get. The other beaches are closeby to drive from here. We stayed on this beach due to its proximity to other locations. We drived each day to other close by beaches.
