Heritance Ahungalla

TripAdvisor Review
Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean
Ahungalla

Quite simply, the Heritance Ahungalla is in one of the most beautiful five star hotels in one of the world's most beautiful holiday destinations. 'Perfection' is the word that comes to mind when describing the Heritance Ahungalla Hotel; everything about it is perfect. It's location, its views, its facilities, its ambience. Set in stunning grounds, on the very edge of the beach and a vast expanse of dazzling blue sea, it is utterly beguiling.

The exquisite setting and facilities of the Heritance Ahungalla make it Sri Lanka's dream destination:

This is a five star facility in every single respect. Everything about it is special. Even the view from the lobby is spectacular – looking out over the vast pool, its lights twinkling as the sun dims and crimson fills the sky.

Guests' rooms are superbly appointed. Luxurious fabrics and rich timber fittings give them a stamp of impeccable quality. Furnishings are rich and tasteful.

Comfort is given equal priority – so you'll enjoy a wonderfully well-equipped en suite bathroom (with a rain shower). All rooms benefit from a balcony or terrace and you can upgrade to a Deluxe Ocean view room for a small daily supplement. Additional facilities include satellite TV, radio, telephone, minibar and drinks making facilities.

Half and full board options are available to you. In fact, you can upgrade to full board for just a little extra per person per day.

As you might expect of a hotel of this quality, facilities are top notch throughout. There are two wonderfully large swimming pools as well as a gym and Jacuzzi and then when it's time to start some serious relaxation, take a trip to the fantastic Spa for a treatment or two. You can also enjoy a little gentle sporting activity on the tennis courts, or a civilised game of billiards in the hotel games room. There are three restaurants for you to choose from (and the hotel coffee shop) as well as four bars.

The Heritance Ahungalla Hotel even has its own nightclub. In other words, everything you'll need is right here. You can unpack, unwind, relax and revel in the Sri Lankan lifestyle without ever going further than the beach. There isn't another hotel quite like the Heritance Ahungalla. Looking out over the beach where clear blue sky meets clear blue sea, you'll know that this hotel and this destination are truly special; this could just be your own little slice of heaven on earth.

The Local Area

The Heritance Ahungalla (formally the Triton Hotel) was Sri Lanka's first 5-star beach hotel and in 2005 it was completely refurbished and extended. As a result this famous hotel has been restored to its former days of glory with tasteful furnishings, luxurious fabrics and rich timber fittings. Guest rooms now assume a new standard of elegance and comfort with lavish en suite bathrooms.

One of legendary Jeffry Bawa's creation

Review by sarath L Galle District, Sri Lanka

We stayed in this hotel in down south possibly for the forth time. It still maintains the standards of care and service. This is one of the very early creation of Jeffry Bawa, the legendary architect in Sri Lanka...

Food was excellent and the staff were helpful.

Restrictive, unfriendly and irrelevant

We booked a double room and from the time of our arrival it felt like we were in a quarantine facility. For a beach hotel that should exude a relaxed vibe, the entire entry was roped off!! We were taken over by a hostess from the time of arrival and directed like school children - "stay here, do that, etc". Walked through an xray scanner which is quite okay but which was the only entry...

Ordered to sit down, ordered to wear masks etc. It is a really open space and we are all triple vaccinated. The elevators were not working. The room was good but was definitely overrun with moisture issues. "Double" meant two single beds pushed together!! Tried to order a cocktail in the bar but was told that because of "supply issues" only Arrack cocktails were available. Had dinner in the coffee shop and were served french fries cooked in rancid Coconut Oil!! When asked why, was told "supply issues". I was offered a replacement but wondered how was I going to receive a replacement if there was indeed a supply issue?? Was a victim of overt racism at breakfast. As a Sri Lankan, I was singled out and ordered to wear a mask!! At a buffet!! All the other non Sri Lankan guests were exempted including my partner. I did complain to the restaurant manager who was very receptive and apologetic. Tried walking on the beach - impossible. All the vendors and touts just follow you around and obviously there is no control from the hotel. Overall a disappointing experience

Exceptional service

My family stayed two nights in the hotel. It was a memorable experience considering the exceptional service, kind staff and the facilities that it provides. My children loved the two large pools, the badminton court, table tennis and the beautiful beach...

The food was excellent. We highly recommend this hotel and are definitely considering coming again next time. Prasantha Hapuarachchi

Calm and Relaxing stay

Review by Pasanabey Colombo, Sri Lanka

We enjoyed our stay at Heritance Ahungalla (during Avurudu weekend) which is immaculately kept. This is my fourth visit and enjoyed as usual…The room was very spacious overlooking the sea - the bed was very comfortable. There is always stock of tea, coffee, water in the room along with the mini bar...

Pools are fabulous, both me and my daughter enjoyed. Staff are lovely and service is excellent. Especially Dhananjaya who is very supportive and take care of us at entire stay….. We enjoyed sun bathing on the beach and had a perfect morning walk. The buffet restaurant is excellent with extensive choices. All three meals were excellent and more choice in the main buffet restaurant. Overall superb stay…Pasan_Abeygunawardane
