General

Luxury-laden and decadence-dipped, Sun Aqua Pasikudah lies on the east Sri Lankan coastline, sapphire seas unfurling beyond. Accessible via seaplane to Batticaloa or scenic drive from the international airport or the capital of Colombo, a getaway here is devilishly indulgent, interiors draped in buttery linens, cool, contemporary spaces meeting every need. In the gardens, palms lean into the breeze and a carpet of bahia grass bends underfoot. Off shore, silver skipjack glint like lightning, flashing past reefs, wrecks and metal hulls. At Pasidukah (also known as Passikudah, Pasikuda and Passekuda), the days are drizzled in sunshine, the nights laced with laughter – a recipe for bliss.

Activities

DIVING

Dive into a glittering underwater world just off the shoreline of Pasikudah beach. The bay extends in a wide, lazy crescent, with toasty warm sand giving way to brilliant blue seas. A certified Five Star PADI dive centre onsite equips divers for excursions around HMS Hermes, a sunken aircraft carrier from WWII. Now guarded by shoals of silver sweetlips, with bright beds of coral blooming on its bridge. Even a leisurely snorkel in the shallows reveals a kaleidoscope of iridescent corals, curious tropical fishes flitting between.

WATERSPORTS

Whipping through the waves at knots, skimming over the sea – Pasikudah Beach’s watersports centre offers windsurfing, skiing, kayaking and all manner of ways to explore the ocean. Whet your appetite for salt spray with a paddle in the clear, cool waters – it’s a deliciously serene, impossibly pristine swatch of beauty.

SPA & FITNESS

Retreat to a luxurious spa room for a sumptuous skin-nourishing scrub or an aromatic oil massage. Four treatment rooms provide serene spaces for renewing body and mind. Treatments are complemented by a harmonious hydrotherapy zone, complete with steam room, sauna and juicy Jacuzzi. A modern fitness centre is also at hand for workout sessions or one-on-one training. Guided yoga and meditation offer deep, soul-soothing respite.

INFINITY POOL

Sprinkled with stars, our sprawling infinity pool is littered with the twinkling lights of fibre optic constellations. Sidle up to the edge for a fresh coconut water straight from the husk, or laze on a shaded lounger with a glass of bubbly and wedges of juicy pineapple and papaya.

TENNIS & BADMINTON

Launch into the day with a high-impact feel-good game of tennis, or work up an appetite with badminton on our floodlit courts, nestled under the watchful gaze of tropical toddy palms. A coach can give you a little help you with your swing, or get the family involved in a fun game of doubles.

EXCURSIONS

Ripe mango and banana bunches scent the air of local markets, gleaming game fish whip in the wake of a deep-sea cruiser, and elephants crush fallen jackfruits underfoot in the Sinharaja rainforest – join one of our cultural day-trips or sea excursions for a taste of Sri Lanka’s irresistible charms.

Culture and history info

The culture of Sri Lanka mixes modern elements with traditional aspects and is known for its regional diversity. Sri Lankan culture has long been influenced by the heritage of Theravada Buddhism passed on from India, and the religion's legacy is particularly strong in Sri Lanka's southern and central regions. South Indian cultural influences are especially pronounced in the northernmost reaches of the country. The history of colonial occupation has also left a mark on Sri Lanka's identity, with Portuguese, Dutch, and British elements having intermingled with various traditional facets of Sri Lankan culture. Due to Sri Lanka's prominence as an ancient trading hub, cultural influences ranging from East Asia to the Middle East have shaped the island, particularly that of the Sinhalese people. The country has a rich artistic tradition, with distinct creative forms that encompass music, dance, and the visual arts. Sri Lankan culture is internationally associated with cricket, a distinct cuisine, an indigenous holistic medicine practice, religious iconography such as the Buddhist flag, and exports such as tea, cinnamon, and gemstones, as well as a robust tourism industry. Sri Lanka has longstanding ties with theIndian subcontinent that can be traced back to prehistory. Sri Lanka's current population is predominantly Sinhalese with sizable Sri Lankan Moor, Sri Lankan Tamil, and Indian Tamil minorities.
