Although we didn't dive as it was off season we had a wonderful holiday at the Deep Sea Resort. It's located in a scenic and tranquil environment by the lagoon. Located away from the hustle and bustle of our city life we could experience peace. Early morning walks on the beach or by the lagoon are both equally adventurous. Some... More

Our long awaited dive trip to dive the World War 2 British aircraft carrier 'HMS Hermes' was fantastic. Feli and his staff did everything they could to make our stay and the diving as special as possible. Although the accommodation is somewhat basic it was clean and cool thanks to the air-conditioning. The food was plentiful, very tasty and always... More

We didn't actually stay in the Deep Sea Resort, but just went diving with Feli and his team. Our first wreck dive (to the Boiler Wreck in Batticaloa, only 9 m below the surface). Amazing site, lots of fish and a really cool wreck. Feli and his team made us feel safe and relaxed; went through all the procedures and... More

A wee gem, a long way from our home in Scotland. Our long laid plans for diving HMS Hermes fell into disarray when the live aboard boat was cancelled with two weeks notice. Our late fall back plan was Deep Sea Resort. The accommodation is functional, clean, AC works, and nothing fazes the team - they made every effort to... More

Deep Sea Resort is the ONLY technical diving centre in Sri Lanka, the only place that can provide you with helium and twinsets. If you are going to see HMS Hermes, this is the place. Apart from that, Deep Sea Resort is a wonderful B&B type accommodation by itself. Food and rooms are great! Prices are just tiny bit higher... More

We spent 5 days diving HMS Hermes with Feli and stayed at Deep Sea Resort. Rooms are clean, morden and comfortable, way beyond what I had expected in this remote part of Sri Lanka. Staff are welcoming and friendly and the food is great!! Not to mention those awesome dives guided by experienced instructor Feli. We had a great time.... More

We traveled to Passekuda and then to Batticaloa with the family. We had three kids. We checked the re views and selected the Deep Sea Resort since they have a swimming pool. These days due to off season sea is rough. The lagoon was not ideal for swimming,. Our kids had a wonderful time in the swimming pool. Water was... More

The season to dive and snorkel in the East coast of Batticaloa is from March to September. At the end of the season the diving activities are moved to the West coast. Usually at the end of the season due to the weather some days we are unable to dive due to strong winds, poor visibility etc. Diving will not... More
