We spent 5 days at Palagama for our honeymoon and it's one of the nicest places we've ever stayed. The rooms and whole resort are really beautifully designed with a lot of attention to detail. Sam and his whole team are incredibly friendly, helpful and professional. The food was some of the best we had on the island, and there's... More

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at Palagama - the ambiance, environment, cuisine and the service at Palagama made it so very special. It felt like the ultimate tropical get-away, having grown up in an Island, resorts hardly impress us anymore, however loved Palagama - such a great concept! was a memorable experience and hope to return very soon!

It was a wonderful concept, amazing set up of rooms with very friendly staff which made our whole experience better. The food was exceptional and one of the best Sri Lankan menus I have had so far. Nothing to dislike, we'll be definitely visiting the place again!

Palagama was just stunning. Everything from the simplicity of the beach cabanas (which are better described as beach houses as they come equipped with outdoor private gardens and jumbo sized bathrooms) to the quality of the food was simply brilliant. The vistas are gorgeous, the ambalambas are relaxing and the staff are friendly & eager to please. On top of... More

We have just thoroughly enjoyed a five night stay at the Palagama Beach Resort. The food was excellent, with my own favourite being the egg hoppers with chilli for breakfast, with very reasonable prices compared to other places we gad stayed at in Sri Lanka. The staff couldn't have been better, getting the perfect balance between being relaxed and attentive.... More

This was our second visit to Palagama Beach. We were very happy to see all the positive changes that have made since we were here two years ago. The place is still the same with the small bungalows all made of palm leaves and local woods hidden in the garden. Very unique. Many details have been improved. Food and service... More

I stayed here with my wife a couple a couple of weeks ago. We stayed in Rose Cottage and it was just delightful. The sound of sea lulled us off to sleep in our very comfortable and charming little love nest nestled in its own flower filled garden. It was bit off season but the place was still gently humming...

I stayed in Palagama last September for three weeks, partly working and partly leisure with my children. Lovely place with stunning view and atmosphere! Staff were very nice, helpful and friendly to us. All worked well and the food was delicious.

Palagama Beach resort is a lovely haven beside the sea, all built in authentic Sri Lankan style with a luxurious edge. Quiet, private cabanas in tree and flower-filled gardens leading up to the infinity pool with its cushioned, palm roofed pavilions over looking the sea. The open air restaurant serves delicious food - amazing breakfasts with egg hoppers, dhal and... More
