|Palmyrah Avenue, Alankuda, Puttalam, North Western, SRI LANKA.|
Description: Bar Reef ResortCradled between Puttalam Lagoon and the Indian Ocean at Alankuda Beach on the Kalpitiya peninsula, Bar Reef Resort is a charming small eco-resort, surrounded by rustling palms and offering fabulous views of the ocean. With just seven cabanas and two villas, Bar Reef Resort offers unique accommodation, delicious food and a fabulous range of activities in an idyllic tropical beach-front setting.
The perfect spot to get away from it all, far from the hustle and bustle of the cities or the cookie-cutter tourist resorts, Bar Reef Resort features eco-friendly cabanas and villas with a rustic semi-open design, palm thatched roofs and carefully chosen furnishings and fittings, hand crafted from recycled timber and driftwood, shells and stone, along with a unique selection of hand-carved artefacts.
A haven for nature enthusiasts and water-sports lovers alike, Bar Reef Resort offers whale-watching trips between November and December and also between March and April. Dolphin watching is possible between November to March, while kite surfing is also a huge draw between March and October. Other activities available on-site or close by include snorkelling over the spectacular coral reef, or cycling on the peninsula's maze of trails. Guests wishing to venture further afield can book an early morning trip to Wilpattu National Park, complete with a packed breakfast as well as a cool box with snacks and cool drinks, and enjoy the spectacular wildlife, with the enigmatic leopard among its many fabulous attractions.
