Food & Beverage
Kumu Beach is the venue for fine alfresco dining experiences paired with direct sea views. The gourmet a la carte all-day fusion menu champions fresh fish and seafood, with platters for sharing and smaller, tapas-style dishes for light meals and snacks throughout the day. Long timber dining deck, fringed by lush seas of spider lilies and a verdant lawn, is the venue for sun-dappled breakfasts and evening candlelit meals beneath a ceiling of stars. Yet for that special occasion, why not dine in the garden, beside the pool, on the beach or even atop one of our garden-edged rooftops for the ultimate private dinner-for-two? The café-style bar is air conditioned, and ideal for chilled dining during the heat of the day.
The curated treatments at the Z Spa promise to relax, reinvigorate and replenish energy levels by a team of experienced, caring professional therapists. This upper floor spa has just one air-conditioned double treatment room facing the Indian Ocean.
The west coast of Sri Lanka is sprinkled with numerous photo-worthy beaches yet Balapitiya’s boulder-scattered stretch of sand feels relatively untouched. Other regional highlights include nearby Ambalangoda, a centre for southern arts and folk culture; Bentota for its wide range of water sports; and Hikkaduwa, lying further south, for its well-established surf culture. Galle’s 17th century Dutch fort is just 50-minutes away by road.
The hotel’s private elevated palm-shaded garden sits a boulder-scattered, sandy beach . The property is suitable for longer stays and it provides superb international fusion menu by Teardrop Executive Chef.
