The undisturbed, pristine coastline, with golden sands and clear blue waters form the beautiful region of Passikudah. Google Maps calls it one the prettiest beaches in the world. Situated about 28km North of Batticaloa town, in the Batticaloa District, of the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka, Passikudah is an approximate 5 hour journey from the Capital, Colombo. The Bay of Passikudah is a crescent-moon shaped inlet of shallow water. The bay is flat and sandy; and provides a very soothing effect on the feet. Its panoramic views and clear, cool waters, ideal for swimming has made it a much adored destination by holiday makers. The amazing tranquility of the beach lends itself beautifully for moments of blissful solitude, with gentle waters lapping at your feet. For more adventurous vacationers, the 4km-long wide and sunny beach provides a great location for bathing, windsurfing and water skiing. Nature lovers will be pleased to find that the bay comprises of a shallow fringing coral reef towards the outer bay with scattered coral communities within.

We spent a two nights stay on our family vacation in this hotel. In this Covid19 situation, Hotel Manager and Staff have given wonderful service in our stay. The food is good. The rooms are comfortable. We enjoyed a sea bath as well as relaxed at the well-maintained pool. By the way, this is our third visit to this hotel during the last 7 years. I like to request from the hotel management to improve the hotel rooms. It seems now high time to renovate some room amenities, especially room lighting and bathroom fittings.

When we visited the hotel, fortunateĺy or unfortunately we were the only full board visitors on that day. Initially I was very reluctant to stay since only the breakfast was a buffet. But the set menu of the chef sanmugam was fantastic. I l give 5 out of 5 for him. Also all the staff are very friendly and gave there 100% to make our trip memorable. Me, my wife and two kids enjoyed the hotel at its level best. The rooms are not that much luxury but for the price it is ok. So il recommend this place.

We spent a family vacation at Amethyst, a great location and we had a wonderful experience. My toddler and 5-year baby girl enjoyed it a lot. Great food and service. Nothing to complain about it. The room could have bigger than that. We highly recommend Amethyst for your vacation.

A family trip which was planned to perfection and thanks to a comfortable and relaxing stay at Amethyst Resort, we were able to enjoy the long trip to Passikudah, which 2 seniors who needed special care and attention. The hotel had all the necessary precautions to ensure the safety and protection of all the guests even though though Passikudah was not a high risk area at all. Special thanks to the restaurant staff who were very attentive to our needs, especially the elders. The rooms were overlooking the ocean and the wide beach front was perfect for our children to let run about freely. I gladly recommend this hotel to future guests.

Amethyst is a nice hotel located in one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka. Its position in between a river and the sea so you can always pick a room with either a river or sea view. Rooms are clean, with your own private sun bath spot. Staff is great and the service is excellent. As for the food I would give it 7 out of 10 with room to improve as they seem to mess-up with the naming of dishes. I was served cheese cake which was actually jelly. Other than that I saw no issues and would recommend this place to tourist.
