our resort

Located in the heart of a fully functional, 25 acre coconut estate, only 25 min. from the airport and on the road to the main cultural sights, Ambarella Lodge is an ideal starting or ending point for your Sri Lankan experience.

Large, well equipped rooms and terraces overlooking the pool and the garden ensure a comfortable and relaxing holiday. 

The local village that can be reached by Tuk-Tuk offers visitors an opportunity to get acquainted with authentic Sri Lankan village life and numerous excursions from half day tours to longer trips are also organized. Negombo and its beach is only a 30 min drive away and Colombo is close enough to be visited over the day.

A pavilion by the pool hosts the Ambarella Café which proposes fresh fruits and delicious local meals, all based on ingredients mainly produced on the estate.

our philosophy

Kotaliyade Estate is an organic plantation and at the Ambarella Lodge we have opted for an eco-friendly approach as well. Instead of PET bottles we serve filtered water in glass bottles, straws in plastic have been replaced by organic alternatives and we avoid using plastic in the housekeeping as much as possible.

Ambarella has signed a sustainability pledge. You can consult it here.
