    Our opinion

    Calamansi Cove is a unique resort in Sri Lanka, with breath-taking views, and an organisation that offers and unrivalled sense of privacy.

    Hotel description

    A boutique hotel near Balapitiya on the South West Coast of Sri Lanka, Calamansi Cove by Jetwing is a strikingly modern take on the traditional luxury accommodation offered by many Sri Lankan resorts. Calamansi Cove was named after a citrus fruit native to South Asia, and has been designed with a creative zing befitting this inspiration. A complex network of white-washed walls and polished concrete terraces separate the rooms, ensuring they have the ultimate sense of privacy. Divided into three clusters of four rooms, the hotel has the convincing feel of a village. The individual set up of the rooms, with bedroom, garden, and roof terrace orchestrates a sense of self-sufficiency and exclusivity, but within just a few minutes’ walk of the hotel’s main facilities. Large single-pane windows look out onto interior courtyards, securing ample fresh breeze, light, and space, but with the peace and seclusion of your own private villa. Inside, the rooms seamlessly make traditional furnishings chic and give modern minimalism character. White linens are brought to life by lime green signature pieces, and the rooms gain depth from polished wooden floors. When covering two of the four walls, these windows bring the sunshine and colours from outside in. The refined, simplistic frames of the four poster beds contribute to the Asian flair of the rooms, along with the predominance of the colour green, and the charming, wonky trees in the gardens. Each of the private residences also has an open outdoor lounge with sitting area on which guests can choose to dine. The modern restaurant at Calamansi Cove is open for three meals a day and set right in front of the beach. Tangerine Restaurant receives its ingredients fresh from traders in nearby villages, and aims to craft them into a selection of dishes that will have wide appeal, but also reflect the Sri Lankan culture. Above the restaurant, the Xango Bar is situated on the mezzanine floor; or, drinks can be enjoyed at the highest point of the hotel, on the Canopy Terrace. This unique hotel, offering a style and standard of accommodation unlike anything else offered by Sri Lanka’s collection of boutique hotels, is a must on any tour of Sri Lanka that ventures into the south of the island. Spend a few nights in total luxury at Calamansi Cove beside the beach, before moving on to a city hotel or a villa further inland.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Balapitiya is an excellent beach resort, but also has much in the way of cultural attractions for guests to enjoy. Perhaps take a boat trip beneath the twisted branches that canopy the river, travelling past island temples, mangrove forests, and abundant wildlife. Kothduwa Raja Viharaya is a temple that sits upon an island, with a 130 year old Bo tree at its centre, and reputedly once housed the Sacred Tooth Relic of the Buddha. Ambalangoda is a town known for its mask-making tradition, so makes an excellent place to gain further insight into Sri Lankan culture. Galle Fort is also within driving distance.
