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 were looking for a place to have lunch and we came across Palagama. The menu was simple but looked promising. The place was very quiet and had a chilled out vibe. The hotel staff was very helpful and placed us in the beach house...More

      We enjoyed the tranquil setting of this beachside rustic resort. The infinity pool was a generous size and kept clean. Our delightful airy and comfortable room had the choice of an indoor hot water shower or an outdoor cold water shower. There was an airconditioner...More

  •   During our trip to Kalpitiya, my wife, little son and I stayed for three nights at the Palagama Beach. In general the hotel is nice (also equipped with a nice pool) and the cabanas are clean and comfortable. As we stayed at the hotel during the off-season we were partially the only guests and the we got a free upgrade (beach cabana instead of normal cabana). Most of the staff was really kind and attentive. The included breakfast is large in variety and delicious. Last but not least the free WiFi was working rather well (definitely not always the case in Sri Lanka).
    The hotel is directly at the sea, but also in the middle of nowhere. Consequently it is not that easy to reach shops and restaurants. Compared to other restaurants in Sri Lanka, we were a little bit disappointed by the quality of the restaurant of the hotel and it was also comparatively expensive.
    All in all we had a nice stay at the Palagama Beach and if you want to spend some relaxing days in a quiet area it is definitely the right place. 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
