About
Description
The undisturbed, pristine coastline, with golden sands and clear blue waters form the beautiful region of Passikudah. Google Maps calls it one the prettiest beaches in the world. Situated about 28km North of More Batticaloa town, in the Batticaloa District, of the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka, Passikudah is an approximate 5 hour journey from the Capital, Colombo. The Bay of Passikudah is a crescent-moon shaped inlet of shallow water. The bay is flat and sandy; and provides a very soothing effect on the feet. Its panoramic views and clear, cool waters, ideal for swimming has made it a much adored destination by holiday makers. The amazing tranquility of the beach lends itself beautifully for moments of blissful solitude, with gentle waters lapping at your feet. For more adventurous vacationers, the 4km-long wide and sunny beach provides a great location for bathing, windsurfing and water skiing. Nature lovers will be pleased to find that the bay comprises of a shallow fringing coral reef towards the outer bay with scattered coral communities within. A hotel by the ocean’s edge, a hotel by the banks of a rippling stream, a hotel amidst lush tropical greenery and mangroves… Amethyst resort encompasses all these comforts rolled into one, to offer you the perfect retreat. Immaculate, untouched beaches bordering the beautiful Bay of Passikudha provide the setting for this luxurious holiday destination we call Amethyst resort. Set on 10 acres of the bay, this beautiful coastal gem is a 97 room hotel, facing possibly the most beautiful beaches the island has to offer. Amethyst resort’s uniqueness is emphasized by a beautiful flowing stream running through it; adorned with lush greenery and mangroves. Less
