Turtle Bay, Tangalle Sri Lanka, The Deep South
Turtle Bay Sri Lanka is a small boutique hotel located on the quiet sands of Kalamatiya. The area is known primarily for it's wildlife sanctuaries and abundant bird life and tourism has yet to really take off in the immediate vicinity.
The property itself is well appointed, with large, airy bedrooms with king size beds. A large swimming pool sits invitingly between the main building and the beach. The staff are extremely helpful and really go out of their way to ensure you are well looked after. The in house Ayurvedic and traditional spa also offers a range of serious treatments for healing and pampering.
The location of Turtle Bay Sri Lanka is close to Tengalle on the south coast ensures that guests are treated to spectacular views of both sunrise and sunset and the deserted beaches around the hotel are great for whiling away lazy days.
Excursions in the region include Yala National Park, Kalamatiya Bird Sanctuary, Udawalawe National Park and trips to the beautiful beaches at Mirissa, Weligama and Tengalle. Turtle Bay Sri Lanka takes it's name because thousands of endangered turtles return to the beaches of this area each year to lay their eggs. Between January and March guests are highly likely to be lucky enough to witness this incredible spectacle.
Turtle Bay Sri Lanka is a little gem of a hotel - comfy enough for you to feel pampered, remote enough to be a real hideaway and yet surrounded by interesting and exciting things to do. Recommended.
Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
