With Sri Lanka bouncing back stronger than ever as one of the most sought-after tourist destinations, this is an ideal time for Sun Siyam Resorts to exhibit its unwavering commitment to this beautiful island nation and be a part of its journey.  Originally launched in 2014 as Sun Aqua Pasikudah, the property underwent a rebranding in 2020, becoming part of the Sun Siyam Resorts collection and adopting the name Sun Siyam Pasikudah.

This reopening marks a new chapter in Sun Siyam Pasikudah’s dedication to offering unforgettable experiences rooted in the beauty of Sri Lanka. The five-star boutique retreat is located on the unspoiled eastern coastline of Sri Lanka, approximately a six-hour scenic drive from Colombo’s Bandaranaike Airport.  Boasting just 34 spacious and contemporary, one-to-two-bedroom, garden or beach pavilions, with or without pools, Sun Siyam Pasikudah ensures an exclusive coastal experience, whether traveling as a couple, a family, or a group of friends.

“The design philosophy for this incredible project was to create a boutique 5* interior with bold monochromatic interiors balanced with rich golden tones. For us, when designing this project, we wanted to create a unique, sophisticated, and chic interior on the magnificent and vibrant coastline of Pasikudah”, says Lee McNichol and Jose Rivero, founders and creative directors at Studio Sixty7 who played a crucial part in the interior design revamp.

The resort provides distinctive culinary experiences that immerse guests in Sri Lanka’s vibrant flavors and elegant colonial traditions. Notable options include The Cellar, the largest wine cellar on Sri Lanka’s eastern coast, the Tea House, offering a huge tea collection and bringing together tea pioneers for a delightful tea-tasting journey, the Slice & Grill, a fast-casual poolside dining concept with an early seventies feel and design, offering pizza and grill favourites, or the Beach Shack, a tropical beverage beach paradise featuring Caribbean vibes.

At Sun Siyam Pasikudah, guests can uncover the unique wonders of Sri Lanka, dive into the sublime underwater world off the pristine Pasikudah coast, snorkel or embark on scuba diving adventures to explore vibrant coral reefs, or take part in more exhilarating options such as jet-skiing, kayaking, and tube rides across the bay.

Alternatively, romance seekers can opt for a serene sailing excursion along Pasikudah’s idyllic coastline or a romantic private dining experience under the stars. For adventure enthusiasts, the resort offers day-long safaris to some of Sri Lanka’s most iconic destinations, such as the awe-inspiring Sigiriya Rock, a visit the remarkable Dambulla Cave Temple, an unforgettable whale-watching trip from May to September where one could see blue and sperm whales, or an excursion to the ancient kingdom of Polonnaruwa before climbing aboard a private jeep for an unforgettable wildlife safari in Minneriya National Park, where guests can spot wild elephants and a variety of bird species.
