About
Description
Palagama is a beautiful tropical beach resort designed by world famous architect Cecil Balmond and John Balmond. Ideally located along a sandy beach, more than 2 kms from the main road, the resort enjoys More pristine and serene surroundings. The number of cabanas has been limited to 16 to be able to provide tailor made experiences for our guests. Designed using natural materials and inspired by the local architecture, our four Beach cabanas offer direct view of the Ocean and espouse an Eco Chic vibe. Other Cabanas and Villas are nestled amidst tropical and lush gardens. Despite its small size, Palagama offers all the services and facilities including a great outdoor restaurant serving western and local cuisines with a special emphasis on seafood, a beach bar fully equipped with an international selection of wines, a fresh water infinity Pool, SPA, travel desk, complimentary wifi, local bikes tours, handicraft shop, daily recreational activities and cooking classes. Day excursions include seasonal dolphin and whale watching, KITE SURFING expeditions in Kalpitiya and day safaris to Wilpattu national park famous for leopard sightings. Palagama has all the ingredients for a fun and relaxing beach holiday. Just 2.5 Hours from the airport, it is also an ideal gateway to the famous Cultural sites of Sri Lanka including Anuradhapura, Sigiriya and Kandy, as well as a relaxing stop before or after an international flight.

I didn't dive there either but I'm sure it can be arranged. They do say, "no problem" a lot, and are pretty laid back, but things get done. Have a great stay, it's a lovely place.
