    Our opinion

    Heritance Ahungalla is a superb luxury beach resort hotel with facilities and services to suit all ages.

    Hotel description

    The Heritance Ahungalla is a five star luxury resort hotel with 154 rooms located on a 15 acre beachfront estate on Sri Lanka’s south-west coast. A sense of grandeur greets you at the entrance as your eyes are drawn across tranquil water pools and gracious columns to the Indian Ocean. Originally designed by the architect Geoffrey Bawa as the Triton Hotel, its most stunning feature is the aquamarine infinity pool, which appears to drop straight into the sea.

    Heritance Ahungalla is decorated in contemporary shades of black, beige and gold with modern lines, and elegant contours. Every bedroom is set at a different angle to its neighbours, another signature of Bawa’s genius, so once you enter your room, you feel as if you are alone on the beach, cocooned in five-star luxury. This first class beach resort offers an extensive range of facilities for adults and children, including, tennis, table tennis, a nightclub, a luxurious Spa and a kids play area. Three restaurants serve international and traditional Sri Lankan cuisine to satisfy all tastes (supervised by a world-class Chef who has won nine gold medals at the Culinary Olympics and the Culinary World Cup). As well as sumptuous buffets and fine dining, you can enjoy succulent dishes and snacks in the ‘Coffee Shop’ 24 hours a day and sip a beer or glass of wine while feasting your eyes on the vista of the ocean, lulled by the sound of the waves. Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery and the Madu Ganga (river) lagoon are amongst the places of interest nearby, whilst historic Galle is within an hour’s drive away.
