Located in Ahangama on Sri Lanka's South Coast, the Kabalana Beach Hotel & Spa is an excellent boutique-style resort with all the facilities to make your stay unforgettable. Built and furnished in a colonial style, it boasts its own private beach and offers sweeping views over beautiful white sandy beaches and the Indian Ocean.
Kabalana Beach Hotel has been a popular hotel among surfers for a long time, especially in the mid-October to mid-April season. Recent extensions and renovations have moved the hotel a little more upmarket and it has been attracting a wider segment of clientele since then. The hotel is built and furnished in colonial style architecture and the interiors are decorated with local art and antiques. The gardens scattered with coconut palms lead to a beautiful beach stretch. The Indian Ocean waters here are just perfect for surfing, swimming and snorkelling.
The hotel is situated at one of three best surf points on the south coast. Built in the coastal village of Ahangama (7km from Weligama, and 38km from Hikkaduwa), the hotel is centrally located to explore Sri Lanka’s southern heritage, cove-like secluded beaches, and wildlife parks. The historic city of Galle is less than half an hour’s (20 km) drive away. The journey from Colombo’s International Airport takes about four hours (135 km).

A good range of accommodation is on offer at Kabalana to suite any budget. There are bungalows, villas, and double rooms (standard rooms & suites). All are tastefully designed with wooden flooring and furnished with four poster beds fitted with mosquito netting. All accommodation opens out to a private balcony or veranda with sea views and has en-suite bathrooms with showers. Other in-room facilities include air-conditioning, satellite TV, telephone and mini-bar.
It is the perfect place for honeymooners and surfers, but also for anybody who looks for an uncrowded and affordable stay at one of Sri Lanka's best boutique hotels surrounded by fine antiques and tropical gardens. In the middle of the tropical gardens, you'll find a large swimming pool next to an open-air restaurant and a picturesque bar. Kabalana specializes in Italian, Chinese, Indian, Russian, western & eastern cuisine and it boasts a couple of well-designed bars with great selection of drinks including cocktails. The bars are used to host theme nights during peak season.
