Palm Garden Village

A perfect retreat for relaxation after busy days exploring Wilpattu and Anuradhapura

Palm Garden Village

Palm Garden Village sits in 50 acres of lush private land originally used for chena (shifting) cultivation, close to the city of Anuradhapura.

Its location is perfect for sightseeing tours and, being set amongst lush gardens with a large swimming pool, is ideal for relaxation and recharging of batteries after a busy day of exploring.

There are 60 en suite rooms including 10 suites styled to give a home from home feel, all with air-conditioning, writing desk, large wardrobes, minibar and satellite TV. The lush gardens, in which many native tree species have been planted, attract many birds, squirrels, endemic toque macaques adn deer. Elephants occasionally visit the lake at the far end of the grounds, particularly in the dry season. There is a large swimming pool with sun terrace, a pool table, a restaurant and bar.

The restaurant has a good spread of Sri Lankan and European cuisine presented in a buffet and there is a nice bar for drinks and light snacks. Other facilities include a games room, gym and an ayurvedic health centre and spa to enjoy.

Quite a lot wildlife can be seen in the grounds and by the tank (lake) at the far end of the property, where water birds congregate and wild elephants are occasionally sighted. Be careful, and don’t go walking around the lake on your own – you don’t want to encounter a wild elephant on foot.
