Hotels in Puttlam


A quiet town set in the remote north-west wilderness

This little-known part of the country is stunning, rural and varied. Head to Kalpitiya, a quiet coastal town which is a popular spot for kitesurfing, or those seeking a secluded beach escape. The more adventurous at heart should go inland and explore Sri Lanka’s rural north-west wilderness – the area is renowned for its picturesque lagoons and ancient tanks that were constructed during the Anuradhapura period almost 2,000 years ago, and Wilpattu National Park, the oldest wildlife park in the island and also one of the most beautiful. From here you can also explore the fascinating ruins of Anuradhapura, the first kingdom of Sri Lanka.

There are several special hotels in Kalpitiya and Puttlam. Try one of Kalpitiya’s beach resorts, both of which have a deliberately rustic feel and offer secluded accommodation in individual cabanas – we love the salt-water infinity pool at Bar Reef Resort. A truly magical experience is had at The Mudhouse in Puttlam, an eco-retreat immersed in nature that operates without electricity and remains one of the most truly peaceful and escapist properties in Sri Lanka.
