Heritance Ahungalla

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

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.

Great Stay

Review by athular1966

We were on a short visit to SL in October and stayed at ‘Heritage Ahungalla’. Hotel was just starting to getting back to some normalcy after a long spell of closure due to the pandemic. The staff were extremely accommodating and the service was exceptional as well...

Duty manager ‘Jay’ and his team were doing great job , would definitely send a friend there.

Amazing get away and a great family time!

Review by MManorie Colombo, Sri Lanka

I stayed at Heritance Ahungalla from 20th to 24th October 2021 and had an excellent stay. Such a great get away from the pandemic fears and stressful life were just what my young family and I needed. Beautiful beach and great ambiance at the hotel made our stay pleasant and full of fun, especially for the kids...

The service was excellent and staff was ever more polite and friendly, attending to all the needs of my young family. I need to specially mention about the food, which was healthy and full of variety. Delicious dishes ranged from all kinds of cuisine mesmerized our taste buds with that aromatic deliciousness. Desserts were so awesome and very healthy. I even wrote a poem after having so much desserts (I am not a dessert person) because it was truly delightful and full of variety! Thank you so much for the wonderful Chefs, and their teams as well as for the hotel staff. We are sure to return very soon! Found love in desserts! Marshmallows in rainbow colours Ginger and coconut pudding Sweet spices and crunch in white So many cakes mouthwatering guests Vanilla cheese cake, raspberry/passionfruit pools, chocolate mousse, white chocolate and coffee crème brule Float you up to the clouds Aroma of fresh pineapples, star fruit, papaya, passionfruit and watermelon Sugary and sour with fragrance of exotic power Say all about our home. Sri Lanka!
