Bar Reef Resort


Bar Reef Resort (Formerly known as Alankuda Beach) offers superb oppourtunities to see and photograph Dolphins and Whales. The sea offers the treasures of dolphin and whale-watching as well as snorkelling over nearby spectacular coral formations.   In addition there is deep-sea fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, kite and wind surfing.


Situated on an undiscovered and deserted two kilometer stretch of a pristine private beach, Alankuda offers a truly relaxing, discrete and romantic getaway. The azure, warm sea is almost always mirror-calm and welcoming during the months of November to April.

Available services

Situated 3 hours north of Colombo and just over 2 hours from the airport, Alankuda Beach features a mix of four open style single roomed wattle and daub cabanas, two double roomed cottages, a striking open pavilion restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean,  a beach bar, and a 40 meter fiber optic-lit pool, all laid out in a pleasing and improbable mix of the traditional and the new.
