The Experience

A seaside retreat doubling up as a romantic hideaway, ‘South Lake Resort’ offers 2 types of chalets to choose from. Named after the Sri Lankan water lilies, Kumudu, Manel, Olu and Nelum - the Pool and Lake View Chalets are woven around a sky-and-earth theme.

Around and About

Conjuring up images of spread-out beaches and tossing waters, Ahangama elucidates a tranquil charm, on the Southern Coastline of Sri Lanka. The seawaters of Ahangama and Midigama are famed for their consistent waves that draw both the novice and connoisseur surfer. Witness the astounding sight of stilt fishermen seated precariously on a narrow strip of wood, above the rolling waters. Enjoy a sunset cruise on the placid waters of the Koggala Lake, alive with bird song. Immerse in the breathtaking beauty of islets like Madol Doova and Cinnamon Island.

As the sun dips down into the blue depths of the lake, the world looks like an old black and white movie. Stars quiver against the soft-spun skies.
