LUXURY BEACH HOTEL | DELUXE ROOMS | LUXURY SUITES | ROYAL SUITES
Heritance Ahungalla Hotel and Resort, is one of the legendary Geoffrey Bawa architectural fantasies come to life, where the uninterrupted line of sky mergers with the sea, giving the illusion of continuous flow right into the azure waters of the main swimming pool. This gives way to slender white columns rising majestically from the courtyard into the elegant marbled lobby where a warm welcome awaits, with a larger than life ‘pun kalas’* frieze on the wall providing the auspicious touch, reminiscent of our proud Sri Lankan heritage.

Located on a prized expanse of sandy beach in Ahungalle 76 Km from Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo, the Heritance Ahungalle was Sri Lanka’s first ever 5 star beach resort. Blissful privacy is provided by the thick coconut groves on two sides of the property and the watery depths of the Indian Ocean on the third.
