The beautifully secluded Turyaa Kalutara, formerly the Sands Kalutara, is such a wonderful place to stay. It's a bright, contemporary hotel with a host of exemplary facilities and an amazing seaview. For many, it's the quintessential kind of Sri Lankan holiday hotel - right on the beach and boasting a wonderful sense of style.
So, what will you do first? There is no shortage of possibilities. Sri Lanka's capital, Colombo is less than 24 miles away and is a must see on many people's itineraries. While Kalutara itself boasts a rich mix of colonial styles and cultural heritage, including the world's only hollow Buddha shrine.
And, of course, there's plenty to keep you entertained at the Turyaa Kalutara. The fabulous lagoon style pool is hard to resist; it's surrounded by beautiful lawns and beyond that, there's the beachfront itself.
The same attention to immaculate standards can be seen in the design and upkeep of guests' rooms. They're all tastefully furnished, with rich wood, cool stone floors and crisp, clean white décor.
From your Deluxe Seaview room you'll have a wonderful view out over the ocean from your balcony – just the place for a leisurely cup of coffee before the day begins in earnest. You'll also find your room well-stocked with a satellite TV, telephone, hairdryer, room safe, with an optional mini fridge.
You'll find even more wonderful amenities as you make your way about the hotel and grounds. As well as the lagoon pool, there is a Jacuzzi, steam bath, sauna and the relaxing Diviya Spa. Other activities include beach volleyball and in-door games.
Your stay at the Turyaa Kalutara will ensure you have the most memorable Sri Lankan holiday. Its idyllic location and mix of facilities make it the perfect base for a relaxing and rewarding holiday.

hotel and staff so friendly
Welcoming and helpful service from the staff, so impressed in how we were treated during our stay. Food and drink is varied and of good quality. We had plenty to choose from for all meals of the day, we couldn't fault the food!
Our room was lovely, a deluxe double with sea view, such a lush view to wake up to every morning. We cannot fault our stay at Turyaa, we loved our time there.
Fabulous hotel, lovely large rooms with sea views and fantastic pool. Charming staff who couldn’t be more helpful. Good food but only one restaurant . The seafood restaurant only opened on a Saturday evening and you paid extra. Would really have liked the odd bbq.
Hotel was very good, although the location could have been better. In the complex every thing was perfect but outside there was no where to go. If we went out we needed to have a car or tuk-tuk, we couldn't just go for a walk.
This was a really 5 star holiday hotel
The staff were extremly helpful and very efficient
with a most friendly manner
fantastic place to relax,hotel staff cannot do enough to make your stay enjoyable
A very well run hotel with a high standard of food amenities and cleanliness. Excellent and very friendly service from all staff at the hotel.

Fantastic response from our rep and the agents whom took us to and from excursions. We were driven everywhere in air conditioned cars, such a luxury! The agents were polite, knowledgable and helpful. Could not fault the service we received.
Hotel was great. Staff really good. Lovely place to stay.
Lovely location, quiet but not too far from the local town. Grounds well kept and extremely tidy. Food varied and plentiful with local specialities also. We were allocated a room in the new part of the hotel so everything was shiney and new. Lovey and modern with good quality bedding and everything always kept clean and tidy.
Well my husband and I have just returned from what was The Sands Hotel, now The Turyaa Hotel. We had an amazing time and could not fault the hotel at all.
The staff were very attentive and could not do enough for you. They would remember that I liked tomato sauce with my breakfast and made sure I had some on my table every morning.
A special thank you to Ajith in the lounge bar who made our holiday and Nelum in the Resturant for being so attentive and professional.
We are hoping to go back in November 2016 and take some of our other family members.
Very happy with this hotel. Would consider going back next year. Staff excellent.
Great hotel with lovely staff. Good food with adequate variety. Good location. Would specially mention Ghisili, Front of house Manager, Thilini, Guest relations Manager, barstaff Theekshana, Lakmal, Wasantha and Charindhu. All the "poolboys" for great service and Asiri and Tarakha, our room attendants. We'll be back!
Always treated with respect and friendship and mad to feel part of The Sands family
All the hotels on the tour were good but Mount Lavinia was special.
