Accommodation, Dry Zone

Maalu Maalu


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.

We were absolutely thrilled by the whole experience and can only commend the helpfulness and friendliness of everyone who made our holiday so special. We cannot speak highly enough of all of our guides who were extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to enhance  our Sri Lankan wildlife encounters. We felt very privileged to be with guides who have so much expertise.
