Taprobana by Asia Leisure

Sunning herself on the palm-tossed beaches of Wadduwa, roughly 30 KM from the urbanite skyline of Colombo is a resort straight off a tropical storybook: ‘Taprobana’.

Best Known For

Stranded on the serene coastline, ‘Taprobana’ is the distant, storied beach retreat that would conjure up surreal images in one’s imagination. From soaking in the balcony-bathtub whilst gazing at murky-red sunsets, to downing a tropical cocktail at the cosy outdoor tavern, a summer-like-never-before awaits the sun and sea lover.

The Experience

Tucked inside this luxury hotel and spa are 24 cockle-warming rooms and 2 suites, each equipped with a garden and ocean view balcony, seating area and king size bed. Splashed with colours from a coastal landscape, the interiors encapsulate the essence of a tropical summer. Quirky modern arts adorn the walls, their cascading colours - an immediate mood-pick-up. Dovetailed with contemporary trimmings, the Deluxe Rooms make for tranquil, elegant stays. The Superior Rooms are equipped with a bathtub in the balcony whilst the Suites feature a Jacuzzi.

4 dining retreats deliver varied gastronomic moments - from fine dining, to star-lit dining. ‘Salt’, the main restaurant, dishes out native dishes and Japanese charms, alongside fine dishes from around the world. The breezy bar, ‘Crimson’, shakes up sunny cocktails whilst ‘Raa’, the quirky al fresco bar dishes out the best of pub grub. The ‘Wine Cellar’ with its finest vintage gems beckons one to drift into that romantic mindset. This beach boutique hotel in Wadduwa also offers stunningly-curated dining experiences like champagne breakfasts and candle-lit dinners.

Appointed with daybeds, the poolside makes for a perfect sunning and chilling spot. The spa at this picturesque seaside hideaway offers an array of thoughtfully-curated treatments to soothe mind, body and soul.

Around and About

Nestled along serene, palmy beaches, Waduuwa is an illustration of a sleepy sea town, with ocean waters perfect for swimming and windsurfing. In the mornings, the quaint fishing village blooms into life with the arrival of the previous night’s fishing boats, laden with ocean’s harvest. Approximately 20 minutes from the resort is the historical city of Kalutara, filled with attractions like the Indian and British art hotchpotch of Richmond Castle, Calido Beach, mangrove-fringed Kalu Ganga River and the mural-filled Gangatilake Temple.

It’s the moment of twilight transfiguration. As you watch from your balcony’s soaking tub, roses, purples and saffrons pour from the jeweled cup of the sky. Ah, the mauve of this moment…
