Laya Waves

Passekudah | First Class

Set on pristine Kalkudah Beach on Sri Lanka’s east coast, Laya Waves really does have an enviable location. Whilst it's likely you’ll only have to share the sands with a few local fishermen (or possibly the occasional cow!), it’s still within easy reach of more developed Passekudah Bay, and its’ excellent watersports facilities.

Accommodation comprises of just eight rooms, occupying four low-rise chalet-style buildings. Rooms themselves are understated, clean and modern, with a spacious split-level option ideal for families; and all benefit from sweeping unobstructed views over the Indian Ocean.

The simple but colourful restaurant area is also set up to take advantage of the ocean vista, serving a variety of local and international dishes, with fresh seafood a speciality. Despite the fact the hotel is part of a group run by the Sri Lankan Army, service hasn’t quite reached the level of military precision you might expect. However, staff are still unfailingly warm, friendly and hospitable.

Keen swimmers will be spoilt for choice between the inviting infinity pool and the warm shallow waters of sheltered Kalkudah Bay. There are also an abundance of opportunities available to explore below the surface, with plentiful diving and snorkelling sites nearby.
