Riu Sri Lanka
Located right on the beach, the U-shaped Riu Sri Lanka Hotel boasts spectacular sea views from all angles. It offers activities that suit the entire family…when the children aren’t splashing around in the pool, they can enjoy a range of dedicated activities at the kids club. Adults don’t get left out from the diverse program of activities and entertainment though. These include a RiuArt workshop, and live shows. Or if you want to completely disconnect, the Renova Spa and treatments are always available. The hotel’s five restaurants offer delectable Sri Lankan cuisine, as well as Italian and Asian dishes, while four bars provide tasty drinks and snacks all day.
Overview of Ahungalla
Exotic holidays to Sri Lanka should always include a visit to the west-coastal town of Ahungalla in the Southern Province. The stunning stretch of beach here is enticingly pretty, and invites you to bask in peaceful solitude, as the Indian Ocean flows against the shore. Most activities take place around the amply-supplied Riu Sri Lanka Hotel and the scenic beach. However, excursions on the popular Sri Lankan railway will transport you to scenic areas like Colombo and Galle, as well as boutiques and historical points interest.
Things to do in Ahungalla
The little coastal haven of Ahungalla is the perfect gateway to the wider charm of Sri Lanka. From the comfort and luxury of the hotel, the rest of this popular holiday-seekers’ destination is waiting to be explored. Nearby activities include visits to Kosgoda Beach, home to one of many turtle sanctuaries along the southern coast of Sri Lanka, and authentic boat tours of the Madu Ganga river. Two-thousand years’ worth of ancient architecture and culture has led to a whopping eight areas of natural beauty – including Galle, which is accessible by railway – being protected and listed as Unesco world heritage sites.
