Amaya Beach Resort Sri Lanka

Overview of Amaya Beach Resort

Amaya Passikudah Resort & Spa Sri Lanka sits on the pristine crescent Passikudah Bay, Sri Lanka’s north-eastern coast, bordered by shallow waters that are ideal water sport lovers. Situated 35 kilometres north of Batticaloa, the resort is five hours away from Colombo by road, taking both the Colombo-Katunayake Expressway Minuwangoda - Kurunegala Expressway.

Accommodation of Amaya Beach Resort

The resort has 125 rooms and suites, most of which overlook the sandy beach, and are designed in a fresh décor with touches of vivid colours that echo the ambience and warmth of this inspiring island.

Accommodation delivers absolute comfort to couples and families alike, for all rooms offer the option of either a king-size bed or two double beds while the suites comfortably sleep families of five or six and are equipped with bunk beds in a separate children’s area, or a sofa bed.

All rooms and suites feature ample living space ranging from 47 to 185 square metres with furnished balcony or terrace and a host of in-room amenities, including individually controlled air-conditioning, flat screen TV with international TV channels, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, in-room safe, IDD telephone line and complimentary wireless internet access.

Services & Facilities

Besides relaxing on the tranquil beach you will enjoy a wide range of facilities and activities including a large swimming pool, water sports and Amaya Beach’s award-winning SPA, a venue of pampering excellence and well-being offering subtle holistic experiences including the ever popular Ayurvedic treatments and other therapeutic treatments for you to unwind or restore your inner balance.

The resort is family-friendly, with a supervised Kids Club, Camp Safari for children aged 4 to 9, the teenagers’ own E-Zone, a children’s pool, and plenty of beach activities.

Water sports enthusiasts will enjoy kayaking and windsurfing while those who are fascinated by life below the surface will wish to explore Passikudah Bay’s own coral reef or venture out at sea to the well-known Mushroom Reef, just 15 minutes away, where at depths of 14 metres can be found a dazzling array of rock fish. A few minutes further away is White Rock, where at a depth of 16 metres can be found parrot fish, fusilier, trevally, sweetlips, emperor and bannerfish. At Marrakkala Gala, diving to depths of 20 metres will reveal schools of rainbow runners who inquisitively follow divers around the rock. There are two wreck sites within easy reach of the resort. Boiler Wreck, about 25 minutes away, is a habitat for a variety of colourful rock fish at a depth of only 9 metres, while less than an hour away is one of Sri Lanka's most famous dive sites, the wreck of the HMS Hermes, lying at a depth of 53 metres.
