Palagama Beach Resort in Alankuda Beach

Palagama beach resort is a beautiful boutique hotel near Kalpitiya. it can be considered a hidden gem because, this is a bit off the normal tourist tracks. But if you are looking for a peaceful and luxurious holiday then this is a must visit place. Compare to most boutique hotels in Sri lanka the place is affordable and well within the range of Sri Lankans who want to enjoy a beach holiday. Considering that there are not many luxury hotels in Kalpitiya area this really is an opportunity
you shouldn't pass. Because of the growth of the tourist industry the number of boutique hotels in Sri Lanka are on the rise and hopefully the prices of Palagama beach resort wont change much in the future.
There are few cabanas available to guests and you can choose one according to your liking. It is important to notice that top priority is given to privacy here. There is a healthy gap between cabanas and every cabana is covered with a fence. The cabanas are named Jasmine, Nellum, Rosa and Beach. The beach cabana is the latest addition and very close to the sea, so you can enjoy the sunset from the comfort of your bed.
If your looking for something more spacious there is Begonia Villa and the Araliya house. Begonia villa has two spacious bedrooms with a private garden. Araliya house has the added benefit of having its pantry and living area.

There is a restaurant by the sea where you can enjoy your meals and the staff is there to cater to almost all your needs. The food was great and we enjoyed it a lot.

But the highlight of the place is definitely the Infinity pool by the beach. We thought it looked beautiful during the day but it looked absolutely marvellous during the evening when the sun was setting. The perfect place to enjoy an afternoon drink. Words can't describe the place so I will let the pictures do the talking.

There are plenty of activities available for you as well. The most popular activity is Dolphin watching. You need to get up early and head out to sea to watch them and if you are lucky you will be able to spot hundreds of them in large groups. If you are a bit more adventurous you can go diving or snorkeling in Bar reef marine reserve which is full of beautiful marine life.
If you don't have the budget to rent a beach villa then this is definitely a nice place to stay and if you are looking for more detailed information you can check out the Tripadvisor reviews of the resort.
