    Hotel description

    Suited to family holidays and indulgent relaxing breaks with friends and loved ones, the five star Eden Resort and Spa in Beruwela, on the south west coast of Sri Lanka, is a consistently popular resort with a reputation for excellent Ayurvedic spa treatments and first class accommodation. Designed with the appearance of a tropical oasis in mind, the hotel buildings cluster around a free-form swimming pool and plumes of palm trees. Sun loungers look out towards the sand and the Indian Ocean beyond, and a poolside bar lets you sip cocktails right on the water’s edge. The rooms are often multi-level, with outdoor balconies or terraces that allow you to enjoy the sunshine from the privacy of your own room. White linens and drapes on the four-poster beds are accompanied by textured red and gold throws and wooden or polished marble floors. Vast single pane windows create tropical panoramas that can be appreciated from the bed, something that is emphasised further in the suites. A range of dining options are available at the Eden Resort, including the aptly named Garden of Eden Restaurant, which serves international dishes at world class standards with views of the poolside and gardens. The informal Chameleon Café serves lighter dishes both indoors and out, but the gastronomic highlight of this resort is definitely Temptations, the creative and innovative formal restaurant. The sommelier is on-hand to select the best wines from the extensive wine cellar, and the views of the Indian Ocean provide the most beautiful setting. Those seeking something a little more intimate might choose to dine in one of the elevated open-sided cabanas in the gardens, atmospherically lit by an overhead lantern, or at 7th Heaven, on the top floor of the hotel. Sri Lankan cuisine at its most authentic is available at the Seafood Market, built to resemble the traditional markets, but with ready-to-eat seafood delicacies. However, before dining in the evenings, guests can enjoy the complete serenity of the Ayurveda Spa, complete with tropical trees, rockery, tranquil pond, and the treatments that Sri Lanka is so well known for. More restless guests might enjoy the thrilling activities available at the water sports centre, from jet skiing, to banana boat riding. The location, facilities, and standard at the Eden Resort & Spa ensure that any stay here as part of a touring holiday around Sri Lanka is greatly enjoyed, be it spent relaxing and enjoying the weather, exploring the local culture, enjoying the sporting opportunities nearby, or a combination of all three.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    When staying at the Eden Resort & Spa, be sure to visit the Barberyn Island Lighthouse, or Beruwela Light, accessible only by boat. Then, spend a few hours soaking up the culture at the Beruwela Fish Harbour and the grand Kechimalai Mosque. Explore the history of gem-trading in this region at the China Fort. The Kalutara Bodhiya, or Buddhist Temple, is one of the most important sacred sites on the island, and is therefore essential in any tour of Sri Lanka’s heritage. Ochre-fronted Richmond Castle is a prime example of colonial architecture. You may also wish to witness the natural beauty of the Kukule Ganga, the serenity of the Wadiya fishing village, and the tiny turtles at the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery. Brief Garden, near Bentota, is the former garden of Geoffrey Bawa’s brother, and the Kande Viharaya, a monumental temple, is adorned with a formidable Buddhist statue.
