One Place... a Life Time of Memories

The resort is divided by a sand bank into two sections, the chalets, cottages, and main dining area at one end, and the camp-site and outdoor/adventure activities situated at the other end. The rooms and suites at the resort have a contemporary, yet ‘local’ feel, with a blend of earth-coloured walls and wide windows framing the magnificent views of the Kalpitiya lagoon and garden. The immediate environment consists of two distinct eco-systems – the lagoon, and the lush Mangrove forest containing several endemic species that is the breeding ground for crabs, prawns and a variety of fish. Several species of waders and other birds also nest in the branches, making it ideal for bird-watchers and nature-lovers in general. The gardens are scattered with Coconut and Palmyrah palms, as well as with several other indigenous dry-zone species of trees that attract a large variety of birds and butterflies. Nature-trails through the dense Mangroves add to the options with the added advantage of a secluded rustic summerhouse situated in the middle of the Mangroves to relax in. There is also a tree-house built on top of a Palmyrah palm from where there is a breathtaking view of the surrounding Kalpitiya lagoon and scenery beyond and around Kalpitiya.
