Heriance Ahungalla






Welcome to a beach hotel where style and substance mix like a classic cocktail. Just as the turquoise infinity pool seems to blend into the ultramarine Indian Ocean, award-winning cuisine fuses the best of east and west.  Welcome to Heritance Ahungalla, where we weave a little magic into your holiday memories while promising you the finest hospitality and best luxury services among Sri Lanka beach hotels.

Heritance Ahungalla is on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast, just south of Bentota and 76km from Colombo. If you are looking for Sri Lanka down south hotels for accommodation, it takes 2.5 hours to drive from Colombo and 3.5 hours from the international airport to our hotel.

Heritance Ahungalla is a five-star luxury hotel with 152 rooms located on 15 acres of beachfront on Sri Lanka’s southwest coast. It is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing beach holiday while being pampered by our world-class service. It is also the perfect luxury base from which to go on a river safari along the Madu Ganga, visit the Kosgoda turtle hatchery or take in the culture and history of Galle and Sri Lanka’s coastal villages.

Heritance Ahungalla was designed by local architect Geoffrey Bawa, famous for blending interior and exterior spaces, connecting buildings with the natural environment. You can see this for yourself as you first approach the hotel. Your first view is of a group of stately coconut trees reflected in a mirror-like pool, before your gaze slides across the polished floor of the open lobby straight through to the ocean beyond.

The infinity pool makes you feel as if you are in the ocean itself when you get in and your eye level is just above the water. Our stylish bedrooms and suites offer wonderful sea views. As well as the delicious buffets and theme nights in ourJute Restaurant, we offer fine dining in the Upper Room and some more exotic, unusual options . In particular, don’t forget to try our special Heritance cuisine.

Heritance Ahungalla has won numerous awards for its food, and we have reached the Green Globe benchmark for our environmental practices.

Our staff, in locally printed batik uniforms, are eager to help you in any way they can – just ask.

We look forward to welcoming you to Heritance Ahungalla!


When you are on a beach vacation in Sri Lanka, luxury accommodation by the golden sandy beaches in the island is a must. Our 152 rooms at Heritance Ahungalla all face the sea, with private balconies from where you can drink in the ocean views and take in the spectacular sunsets. Polished wood is a big feature, along with stone floors in the bathrooms and locally woven throws and cushions or handmade batik hangings. Sophisticated monochrome colour schemes highlight the clean, elegant feel – this is stylish seaside living at its finest. The glass-panelled bathrooms let in natural light, with blinds for privacy. Here you can refresh yourself before dinner under giant rain showers or in a Jacuzzi. Each bathroom is tastefully supplied with custom-made Ahungalla toiletries.

The rooms are fully equipped with energy-efficient air conditioning, TVs with satellite and local channels, a comprehensive minibar and a digital safe. The free bottles of Hethersett Water come from the mountain spring of our sister hotel, Heritance Tea Factory, and we also provide coffee- and tea-making equipment. All rooms are accessible to wheelchairs, and we offer driver quarters if you have your own driver. We also provide free Wi-Fi in every room, as well as laundry service, porter service and 24-hour room service. Smoking and non-smoking rooms are available.

Free cots are available for babies; we can also provide an extra bed for a child on request.

Incorporating all these luxuries, we promise you the best modern facilities and services any beach hotel in Sri Lanka could offer.
