Maalu Maalu was one of the pioneering hotels on Passekudah Bay, north of Batticaloa on Sri Lanka’s east coast. It has a more local feel than most of the other hotels, with thatch-roof duplex blocks containing rooms with en suite bathrooms, double or twin beds, balcony/terrace, air-conditioning, TV, minibar, tea/coffee, safe, telephone and free WiFi. The pool bar encourages bare feet, the main restaurant serves very good local food, the beach is sandy and the swimming warm and safe.

[Our guide] was brilliant. Always on time and very helpful. All transfers were great. The bird watching trip was excellent and our guide was great at spotting birds. The elephant orphanage was also great.
