    Our opinion

    The service and style of Aditya make this a ‘must stay’ in Sri Lanka.

    Hotel description

    Aditya is one of Sri Lanka’s most sought-after luxury boutique hotels, artistic, modern, intimate and on a hidden stretch of beach on Sri Lanka’s south-west coast, 12 kms from historic Galle. Its 12 suite rooms are lavishly designed offering privacy and space; each one is individually named after one of the Adityas – the solar deities of Hindu mythology and unique in design and décor. Aditya’s high walls, polished teak and cement floors, stylish art and antiques and richly coloured textiles create beautiful surroundings and an air of opulence. The open-plan lounge, bar and restaurant are open-fronted towards the hotel’s swimming pool and garden so that you catch the sea breezes from the ocean beyond. Over 20 kinds of birds have been spotted in Aditya’s garden, where a hammock invites you to gaze and laze to the sound of energising waves and swishing pandana leaves. All the suites have a private plunge pool, a king-size 4-poster bed and a full range of luxury features. For a sea view, we recommend the ‘Sagara’ Ocean suites on the upper level, which have large balconies facing the Indian Ocean. If you prefer to be at ground level, each of the five ‘Shanti’ Garden suites opens out onto its own private garden and terrace (no sea view). The service at Aditya is highly personal and charming, pampering yet discreet. Meals can be custom prepared for you to be savoured whenever and wherever you wish, including on the beach. The cuisine is Sri Lankan and international, delicious and exquisitely presented, particularly the fresh seafood and Thai signature dishes. You can even learn how to cook Sri Lankan curries from the master chef. Spa and beauty treatments are designed to relax and rejuvenate you in the privacy of your own suite or at the Nirvana spa and, if you ever feel like being active, Aditya is well-positioned for half-day or day excursions such as to Galle for sightseeing around Galle Fort or to Hikkaduwa for watersports. Aditya is an idyllic hotel for couples seeking a romantic luxury holiday relaxing by the beach, with options to be active and explore nearby. The beautiful setting and the fine service also make Aditya an excellent choice for an intimate wedding.
