Hotel RIU Sri Lanka

Extending Spain-based RIU Hotels and Resorts’ hospitality heritage to the tropical isle, ‘Hotel RIU Sri Lanka’ reposes under the wind-winnowed sky gardens of Ahungalla, 2 ½ hours’ drive from the cosmopolitan centre of Colombo.

Best Known For

Sunning herself on the tawny shores of Ahungalla, this 500-roomed, all-inclusive resort sums up the perfect family vacation. From balcony rooms that gaze across the oceans and sun bed-dotted swimming pools which convey the impression of being in a cruise ship, to dining retreats with auras of sophisticated cuisine and fragrant balms and oils that await one at the dreamy spa, ‘Hotel RIU Sri Lanka’ is the epitome of halcyon days by the seaside.

The Experience

Varied types of rooms sit within the modern structures that are spread out in the well-manicured gardens. Each standard guestroom at ‘Hotel RIU Sri Lanka’ is furnished with a balcony or terrace with views of the garden, city or ocean. All suites are furnished with seating lounges whilst some of them feature bathtubs.

The main restaurant at this beach hideaway serves up international buffets whilst 3 cosy restaurants specialize in Italian, Asian and Barbeque dishes. Stylish bars sit by the poolside, terrace and lobby. Stunning swimming pools are flanked by multiple rows of white sun beds. Other recreational choices at this seaside oasis include a wellness spa, kids’ club, beauty salon, gym and night club.

Around and About

Laid out on the sparkling ribbon of the Southern Coastline, Ahungalla is a living map of softly-blue seas, molten-gold shores and unbroken banners of apple-green skies. Calling the weary traveller to swim, sunbathe and wander along its pensive beaches, the shore town’s setting makes for a dreamy vacation spot. A whisper away from Ahungalla is the serene beach of Kosgoda, where turtles lay their eggs, in the secret of moonlight. A little south of Ahungalla is the Madu Ganga River, a glory of mangroves, bird life and little tropical islets full of exotic character.

The sun deepens and sea breezes gather. Dip your toes in the inky waters and life is good.
