Welcome to Sri Lanka

Kalutara

Kalutara or Kalutota is a large town in Kalutara District, Western Province, Sri Lanka. It is also the administrative capital of Kalutara District. It is located approximately 40 km south of the capital Colombo.

Holidays in Kalutara offer travellers a laid back and relaxed atmosphere with the combination of a generous helping of authentic Sri Lankan culture, not to mention a dash of old colonial charm. This is an up-and-coming resort town with a wonderful palm fringed beach, although the nightlife remains pretty low key, so you won’t get to dance till dawn. What you will get is plenty of beautiful, tropical scenery and several interesting sights, like the world’s only hollow Buddhist Shrine and an elegant plantation mansion, rather grandly named Richmond Castle.

If you’re looking for budget holidays in Kalutara, luck should be in your way. The hotels are mostly luxury, resort-style properties, so it’s not the kind of place that caters much for those on a very tight budget. Well known properties are the Tangerine Beach Hotel and the Royal Palms Beach Resort, both of which have superb facilities, including health spas. As for all inclusive holidays to Kalutara, there’s The Sands by Aitken Spence Hotel, where you can top up your tan, play a couple of sets of tennis, have a work out, revitalize with a massage and round off the day with a slap-up meal in one of the hotel’s restaurants.

Tell people you’re going to travel to Kalutara and, if they know Sri Lanka, they might mention the town’s main claim to fame which is the “mangosteen”. A slice of this luscious purple fruit with juicy white flesh is not to be missed, particularly if it’s washed down with a glass of arrack, a local alcoholic drink made from sweet, milky coconut blossom.
