There is a wholesome quality to the property with an organic vegetable plot; comfortable ambalama by the pool; hammocks amongst the kohomba and acacia trees; driftwood showers and stunning roof terraces on top of all three villas. Up here you can sleep under the stars or enjoy the magical fiery orange sunset.
The white-washed buildings with palm-thatched roofs reflect the traditional style of the fishing huts on the beach and blend seamlessly into the dry, scrubby landscape.
Alankuda beach has soft golden sand, clear calm water in season and no currents. Crabs scuttle in the froth of the broken waves. On the fringes where pine trees merge into the beach are two cadjan huts where you can enjoy an ayurvedic massage.
NOTE: On the coastline, approximately 4km from the hotel, there is a major power plant. When on the beach looking left, the power plant and the peer serving it can be seen. We have been working with all the hotels in the area since the inception and to date a very small number of people have brought this to our attention. The immense majority of clients are very happy with the overall experience in all the hotels of the Kalpitiya stretch, however in order to better manage the expectations of our clients we feel it is important to mention the fact.

This beautiful two-bedroomed villa, just a stone’s throw from the pine bordered pool, is an excellent choice for a group of friends or a family.
The villa has a large open-fronted veranda, which is ideal for lounging and reading on the comfortable cushioned ledges. All the buildings have real character because of the use of antique doors and window frames, as well as ornaments collected from the owner’s travels.
Walking into the villa, you come to the living area. The double room leads off from here, and then another door takes you through an open courtyard with a his and hers bath and then to the second bedroom, which has two double beds and can sleep four people. This room has A/C and a TV. The bathrooms are complete with good showers, and nice details, including towel racks and antique cupboards. The laid-back beach feeling.
This one-bedroom villa is ideal for honeymooners and couples who are looking for privacy and comfort. It is built in the same style as Villa 346 but has a more open-plan lay out.
There is a spacious kitchen with a fridge, microwave, coffee machine and a satellite TV. The central courtyard is charming with Persian mosaic tiles, aloe vera plants and a frangipane tree in the centre. The highlight is the jacuzzi bath.
You walk through the courtyard to get to the master bedroom, which has a view of the sea through the large antique windows. Large Persian carpets decorate the floors, giving a homely feel. There is a spacious en suite bathroom.
The rooftop is a romantic spot for sunset drinks and you can even sleep up here under the stars or under a thatched area.
Extra beds can be added to sleep 4 or 5.
