  • About this holiday

    The five star Turyaa Kalutara is a luxury resort in South Western Sri Lanka. With an abundance of pools, restaurants, sports facilities, and relaxation opportunities, within reach of a pristine golden beach, we would recommend this resort to anyone looking for indulgent relaxation on this magical island. Spend a few days soaking up the sun, enjoying the water, and exploring the nearby fishing villages and towns, before moving inland or further along the coast as part of a luxury Sri Lanka touring holiday.

    This luxury five star resort comes highly recommended for couples looking for a romantic break, families looking for a summer oasis, and other groups looking to experience and enjoy enchanting coastal Sri Lanka.

    Hotel description

    On the shore of South West Sri Lanka, near the towns of Wadduwa and Kalutara, the five star Turyaa Kalutara is a valued member of the Aitken Spence hotel group. A leaning row of swaying coconut palms, a stretch of golden sand, and a pool garden of lush grass are all that separates the hotel from the lapping waves of the Indian Ocean. Two outdoor pools, one freeform and one sleek and geometric, act as relaxation hubs amidst the hotel grounds. Sun loungers with parasols cultivate pockets of shade, away from the heat of the sun. Guests may choose from a variety of room types, each elegantly decorated in rich, earthen tones, and each with stunning views across the tropical trees and the sea. All rooms are luxuriously furnished and bear a distinctly Sir Lankan mark. The cabanas, which sit closest to the sea, are a much more modern twist on the thatched, wooden structures that are so central to the heritage of the island. It is here that guests will find the most idyllic privacy. In the evenings, guests can dine in any of the on-site restaurants, including the Pink Lobster seafood restaurant, which serves beautifully fresh seafood with Thai, Chinese, and Sri Lankan flavours, as well as a selection of chic bars, coffee shops, and special dining options such as the Arabic-themed restaurant. The food itself is always prepared and served with gourmet flair and an expert understanding of regional delicacies. The Turyaa Kalutara is an exceptional luxury resort, perfect for a three or four night stay as part of a longer tour around Sri Lanka.


    Right on the beachfront in Waskuduwa.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    Guests of the Turyaa Kalutara may wish to head into Kalutara itself for an afternoon excursion. This colourful town was once an important spice-trading centre, formerly owned by the Dutch, the Portuguese, and the English. Richmond Castle is an ochre-fronted manor house with landscaped gardens, originally designed to imitate an Indian palace. Situated at the top of a small climb, the Fa Hien Caves are encased within the oldest natural rock in Sri Lanka and are said to have been occupied 37,000 years ago. On the banks of the Kalutara River stands the Kalutara Bodhiya, a Buddhist temple; this is one of the most spectacular religious sites in the area, and is crowned by a vast white dome. To truly enjoy the Sri Lankan weather, explore the Calido Beach, a strip of land that separates the river from the sea, or Kalutara Beach, which is often almost empty, though the sea is not often totally calm.

    Sports nearby


    Family suites are perfect for adults travelling with children, and the playground and children’s pool ensures their holiday is as enjoyable as their parents’. The hotel’s professional team organises specialised entertainments for different age groups. A children’s menu is available in the restaurants.
