Myself and a friend just returned from a 2 day stay at Palagama Beach and we already regret not staying longer. We feel so lucky to have discovered this paradise in Kalpitiya because it was the perfect blend of laidback and luxurious. The best thing about Palagama Beach is probably the setting. We were ready for a beachside village but... More

We stayed in March as part of a two week holiday in Sri Lanka. It took about 4 hours by car from the airport in Colombo and is well worth the journey - a nice relaxing start to our tour. The beach location is great and there is a lovely pool too - a great place to watch the sun... More

This was our 4th visit and certainly not our last. It is so laid back and relaxed. The infinity pool is beautiful, the food is good and all of the staff are attentive, friendly and helpful. There is a clean sandy beach, but the steep sand and current make the pool a better bet.

My work is intense, I live in the city so life is mental. When I go on holiday I want peace and quiet. Somewhere without crowds,noise and all that stuff. I have been to Sri Lanka several times and I love the island. But this time I was looking for something different. Resorts are fine but they can be a... More

Loved the hotel, rooms, staff and the amazing setting... The rooms are beautifully done and in tune with the surroundings and the out door showers are a fantastic touch. The pool has an amazing view of the ocean and the evening sky has its own dance of changing colors while you watch.. Simply beautiful and completely blissful. we enjoyed every... More

I just love the concept here. The rooms are cool - surprise - and very nicely done. Outdoor shower is an adventure. Food is delicious. Staff very friendly. If you are a bit boored there is a giant screen at the bar to watch 100 of movies.

Laid back beach resort with high standards but no pretentions. The pool is meticulously clean with magical views towards the ocean. The staff are wonderfully friendly and will go out of their way to make your stay special (thankyou for sourcing the jumbo prawns for me and the crab curry for my husband). Wonderful for children who can explore safely... More

We visited 1st week of April. Stayed 4 nights. It was an amazing experience. The resort is about 3 hrs North of Colombo by road. It offers a unique beach holiday with simplistic cabanas/ villas to suit all types of travelers. Key features are the palm leaf thatched cabanas with a cool outdoor shower concept. The whole resort has been... More

Good sized infinity pool, very clean. Open air shower area attached to each room. Plenty of seating in room, but not particularily comfortable. Too... More

We are delighted to have selected Palagama Beach hotel for a 3 day visit. The staff were very accommodating, pleasant and hospitable. The hotel itself is beautifully designed - with individual bungalows that were comfortable, clean and remote from one another to achieve a real sense of privacy. The pool was gorgeous, large, and afforded beautiful views of the ocean,... More
