Kosgoda

Located on the warm, golden sandy beach in a cosy fishing village in Kalutara lies a place that some call heaven... an enchanting Sri Lanka beach hotel that is tucked away in a vast coconut grove... where tranquillity meets paradise...sun, sand and sea lovers have discovered their ultimate getaway. The Mermaid Hotel and Club is nestled in a vast coconut grove along a stretch of golden sandy beach in Mahawaskaduwa, a cosy fishing village in the city of Kalutara, situated along the southern coast of Sri Lanka.

The most favoured amongst Kalutara beach hotels, the hotel opened its doors in 1983 and, through regular refurbishments, has kept pace with international standards. The hotel boasts fifty four standard rooms equipped with modern amenities, nine sea view rooms, nine superior sea view rooms and nine spacious deluxe sea view rooms that afford absolute luxury and comfort with direct views of the garden and sea beyond. Other facilities include two swimming pools, a restaurant with an alfresco dining area, 4 bars, sahana spa and a sports centre which offers a range of activities.

With its main swimming pool surrounded by sun lounges and its beautifully manicured gardens extending to the shoreline, this is the ideal retreat for relaxed getaway. The Mermaid Club is located adjacent to the hotel away from the main buildings offering a wide range of sports and recreational activities.

Kalutara derives its name from the ‘Kalu Ganga' or Black River. During colonial times, Kalutara was a hub for the spice trade and has many must-see fortifications that date back to the Portuguese, Dutch and British occupations of Sri Lanka. Another attraction which is considered a must-do is the most revered three-story high hollow stupa that was built on the premises of the Kalutara Vihara in the 1960s.

Travel time from the Bandaranayake International Airport (BIA) to our Kalutara hotel is approximately two hours (45 miles) and a little over one hour from the capital city of Colombo (24

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Good place with a potential to be among the best!

Review by asimnaveed Islamabad, Pakistan

Pros: Beautiful location, easy access to the beach. Good room size and nice view. Pool is clean and well maintained...

Restaurant has limited menu but good food.

Cons: staff is not as welcoming as we have seen in other places in Srilanka. Our booking instructions were not followed but later they sorted out. Washroom amenities did not include a conditioner. Pool side bathing area needs an uplift as it’s very dark and gloomy.

itMini bar refrigerator was not working.

Fab hotel in Sri Lanka

Review by gill s Staines, United Kingdom

I stayed here in feb 22. Accommodation and location perfect. It’s on the beach but no swimming in that area, pool perfect...

The turtle sanctuary is a 5 min walk away on the beech. Bentota 20 min drive. Rooms are perfect with excellent housekeeping. I stayed for 12 days buffet breakfast is great with lots of choices. Depending on the amount of people staying rules if buffet or Al a carte meals in the evening. Only 30 rooms so staff make it very personal. The road to the hotel is a dirt track and my taxi driver complained. I would go again, beautiful stay. My only complaint would be that on settling my bill to leave the Hotel the staff spoke to my Sri Lankan male friend in Sinhalese and not to me a woman who was paying the bill. I had to ask reception to speak to me. This has happened to me in Sri Lanka before. This app will not let me add photos.
