Make your way to a sun-dappled beach through lotus-filled ponds and a lush green blanket of gently swaying palms. Watch the waves dance gently by and let yourself be lulled to sleep as nature, in her perfect harmony, croons soft melodies of distant birds resplendent under brilliant blue skies and of waves softly lapping the shore. Open your eyes only long enough to contemplate the heady sight of nothing but miles of beach stretching far, far out. Bliss? It’s a way of life at The Palms in the sunny south coast of Sri Lanka – our teardrop-shaped paradise isle or as the Persians aptly called us in days gone by, “Serendip”.
Exuding understated elegance, The Palms is cocooned in a sprawling sun-bathed 8 acres on the ‘Golden Mile’ stretch of reef-engulfed, honey hued beach in the coastal city of Beruwala. Simply strolling through the hotel soothes the weary traveller as sweeping green foliage gently fans all its walkways, making the journey that much sweeter. The Palms’ distinctive design also means that the hotel’s rooms all open out to a brilliant turquoise-tinged sea.
For the sun worshipper in you, soak in the golden rays of paradise in the comfort of your own room terrace, or try a lounger by the pool as it calls out enticingly for a relaxing dip. Our mini-island bar also stands ready nearby, as you enjoy the lazy evening breeze in quiet contentment. For our guests who would love a little pampering, let the cares and worries of everyday living glide easily off your shoulders at the hotel’s Ayurvedic Centre as a luxurious array of massages, healing baths and curative wraps whisper of exquisite bliss and dreamlike escape. It’s a hard life isn’t it?
