Location + Surroundings
This accommodation is located at a resort in Kiran, Sri Lanka, where it is situated right on Kalkudah Beach. From the resort, guests will enjoy direct access to the unspoiled 15-kilometer beach, which is stretched along a gently curving bay and features fine-grained sand lined with swaying palm trees and turquoise waters that are safe for swimming. In the mornings, the beach provides a vantage point from which to enjoy spectacular sunrises lighting up the sky above the Gulf of Bengal with oranges, pinks, and purples. During the day, guests can watch the traditional Tamil fishermen as they haul in their nets.
Set on a former coconut plantation, the resort is doted with Palmyra palms and infused with artwork in both its interior and exterior spaces, which are embellished with sculptures, paintings, and photographs from Sri Lankan and foreign artists. With its on-site restaurant, spa, infinity pool, and direct access to the beach, guests could hardly be blamed if they spent their entire getaway at the resort, but they will also be richly rewarded for venturing into its surroundings.
Nearby attractions include the churches, mosques, temples, and historic fort of Batticaloa's old town; the peaceful lagoons of Sri Lanka's east coast; and the vibrantly-colored Hindu temples and markets of the neighboring Tamil villages. Farther afield, guests can reach the ancient city of Polonnaruwa and the port city of Trincomalee in an hour, Flood Plains National Park in an hour and 10 minutes, and Maduru Oya National Park in about an hour and a half. At the latter national park, guests will find 58,850 hectares of vast open plains, tropical evergreen forests, rocky mountains, and large reservoirs, which are home to a variety of wildlife and birds, including elephants, leopards, sloth bears, monkeys, eagles, storks, and pelicans.
