The Beach House at Pasikudah Sri Lanka will be one of the first boutique luxury resorts to open in the newly developed area of Pasikudah Bay. Sri Lanka’s East Coast has been marked as off-limits to tourists for nearly 30 years, but the civil war has ended and the region has been peaceful for several years. It was only a matter of time before this area of Sri Lanka, with its miles of white sand beaches and crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean, beckoned tourists.
To reach the Beach House guests can either board a 60-minute seaplane transfer from Colombo, or take a five-hour drive from the capital. The property includes 32 luxurious suites with individual plunge pools and a personal butler. The two expansive beach pavilions, each featuring a swimming pool, are big enough to accommodate family and friends. For the adventurous, there is a PADI diving school to take advantage of the thrilling spectacle beneath the waves along Sri Lanka’s east coast reefs, plus a watersports center, tennis courts, and a gym.
The Beach House also offers a relaxing spa and restaurant showcasing the region’s finest dining experience. The best part? The opening rates start from US$390 per room on a bed and breakfast basis (plus service charge and taxes). That is definitely a value considering you will be enjoying the same gin-clear waters as the nearby Maldives at a fraction of the cost. To book your Sri Lanka escape, visit here.
