Everything about my stay at the Palagama beach was perfect: the beach villas are so gorgeous with every detail taken into account (thatched semi-outdoor bathroom that still has a hot shower(!), four poster bed, comfy chairs, little shutters and sweet artworks on the walls), charming service and the pool was very inviting. If you want to get away from it... More

We have just returned from an amazing 5 day stay at Palagama beach and couldn't have picked a better place for our honeymoon. Normally I never write reviews but I am making an exception for Palagama beach as we loved it so much. Palagama has an authentic village feel, accommodation is extremely private and beautiful - we stayed in Rosa... More

We were a group of 15 adults + 6 children. We received a warm welcome from a charming Guest Relations officer, who led us from the main entrance through to the equally charming and serene 'Eco-friendly' retreat, with an inviting infinity pool, cozy villas, cabanas and obliging staff. We were booked on full board basis, and since we were a... More

My wife and I spent just over two weeks touring around Sri Lanka, staying in guest houses etc and wanted to stay somewhere special for our last week - we were not disappointed! We spoke to three of the resorts and went and visited them before closing Palagama, the huts are great and the open air showers are really fantastic.... More

We wanted to stay two nights at this beautiful resort during low season, we wanted to see something else at the peninsula some kite-surf stuff, but because of no wind we thought of going to another resort.. NONE of them was as nice as Palamaga beach! So we went back! Friendly crew, nice details, beautifull houses and pool. Nothing that... More

Truly amazing. Service was excellent and I really enjoyed my stay at Palagama Beach Hotel. It is very unique with the outdoor showers and mosquito nets in the bed room and it's natural. One night wasn't really long enough. :)

Palagama Beach was beyond amazing. Our bungalow with mosquito netting and outdoor shower was romantic and natural all at once. The staff was super amazing- taking care of every need. The food was great and I thoroughly enjoyed their extensive video library. :)

I absolutely loved this idyllic haven. Beautifully designed with 2 fabulous pools and a deserted beach - I could have stayed much longer. The staff were warm and friendly and created a relaxed atmosphere. The food was spectacular - fresh seafood simply cooked as well as delicious Sri Lankan curries. I enjoyed an incredible massage at the spa which I... More
