From $75 / night* Enquire Now
Known to have one of the longest stretches of shallow coastline in the world, the coastal community of Passikudah is about 35 km Northwest of Batticaloa. The resort, which is on the east side of the island, is about five hours away from Colombo by road. But what draws visitors to this location is the Passikudah Bay, which is truly magnificent and is protected by a reef that runs across making it one of the safest and calmest stretches of coastline in the east. The reef is home to lovely coral formations and reef fish with dotted palmyrah trees with sand so soft it almost disappears in your hands.
Set amidst the beautiful shores of Pasikudah Bay, Amaya Beach Hotel & Spa Sri Lanka with its ever attentive staff, large guest rooms and suites and endless spacious, dreamy, hallways epitomize the ideal hide-away of soothing tranquility. A sun drenched haven nestled on a white sandy shore with lush tropical gardens that dance in the salty air await to envelop your senses.
The beach hotel has 125 rooms and suites, most of which overlook the sandy beach, and are designed in a fresh décor with touches of vivid colours that echo the ambience and warmth of this inspiring island.
Accommodation delivers absolute comfort to couples and families alike, for all rooms offer the option of either a king-size bed or two double beds while the suites comfortably sleep families of five or six and are equipped with bunk beds in a separate children’s area, or a sofa bed.
All rooms and suites feature ample living space ranging from 47 to 185 square metres with furnished balcony or terrace and a host of in-room amenities, including individually controlled air-conditioning, flat screen TV with international TV channels, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, in-room safe, IDD telephone line and complimentary wireless internet access.
Whether its savouring a mouthful of spicy dishes at the Spice Market or being entertained by our in house chefs at the Elements Lounge we invite guest to savour these inspired offerings which showcase the flavours of a region known far and wide for its culinary offerings - which delight all your senses.
Besides relaxing on the tranquil beach you will enjoy a wide range of facilities and activities including a large swimming pool, water sports and Amaya Beach’s award-winning SPA, a venue of pampering excellence and well-being offering subtle holistic experiences including the ever popular Ayurvedic treatments and other therapeutic treatments for you to unwind or restore your inner balance.
The resort is family-friendly, with a supervised Kids Club, Camp Safari for children aged 4 to 9, the teenagers’ own E-Zone, a children’s pool, and plenty of beach activities.
Water sports enthusiasts will enjoy kayaking and windsurfing while those who are fascinated by life below the surface will wish to explore Passikudah Bay’s own coral reef or venture out at sea to the well-known Mushroom Reef, just 15 minutes away, where at depths of 14 metres can be found a dazzling array of rock fish. A few minutes further away is White Rock, where at a depth of 16 metres can be found parrot fish, fusilier, trevally, sweetlips, emperor and bannerfish. At Marrakkala Gala, diving to depths of 20 metres will reveal schools of rainbow runners who inquisitively follow divers around the rock. There are two wreck sites within easy reach of the resort. Boiler Wreck, about 25 minutes away, is a habitat for a variety of colourful rock fish at a depth of only 9 metres, while less than an hour away is one of Sri Lanka's most famous dive sites, the wreck of the HMS Hermes, lying at a depth of 53 metres.
