About Heritance Hotel
Heritance Ahungalla is a five-star luxury hotel with 152 rooms located on 15 acres of beachfront on Sri Lankas southwest coast. It is the ideal place to enjoy a relaxing beach holiday while being pampered by our world-class service.
It is also the perfect luxury base from which to go on a river safari along the Madu Ganga, visit the Kosgoda turtle hatchery or take in the culture and history of Galle and Sri Lankas coastal villages.
Heritance Ahungalla was designed by local architect Geoffrey Bawa, famous for blending interior and exterior spaces, connecting buildings with the natural environment.
You can see this for yourself as you first approach the hotel. Your first view is of a group of stately coconut trees reflected in a mirror-like pool, before your gaze slides across the polished floor of the open lobby straight through to the ocean beyond.
The infinity pool makes you feel as if you are in the ocean itself when you get in and your eye level is just above the water.
Our stylish bedrooms and suites offer wonderful sea views. As well as the delicious buffets and theme nights in our Jute Restaurant, we offer fine dining in the Upper Room and some more exotic, unusual options . In particular, don't forget to try our special Heritance cuisine.
Heritance Ahungalla has won numerous awards for its food, and we have reached the Green Globe benchmark for our environmental practices.
Our staff, in locally printed batik uniforms, are eager to help you in any way they can just ask.
We look forward to welcoming you to Heritance Ahungalla!
Our main restaurant, named after the batik fabric on the ceiling, has full-length glass windows overlooking the lush grounds of Heritance Ahungalla.
It is the setting for our sumptuous buffets, where you can choose from delectable displays decorated with amazing pastry or sugar sculptures.
There is always something going on at our chef action stations, from waffles and omelettes at breakfast to devilled prawns or kebabs on our theme nights.
