A tropical retreat, in touch with nature

Away from the hustle and bustle of modern life, Club Palm Bay is nestled within lush tropical mangroves and natural fresh lagoons on the Sri Lankan coast and offers a serene atmosphere for your holiday. Its extensive swimming pool is one of the largest in Sri Lanka, whilst its restaurants and bars offer a splendid assortment throughout the day. Your room is simple yet comfortable, with a terrace or balcony and lovely views, and you'll have a lot to do during the day too; with golf, tennis, squash, and traditional ayurvedic treatments to discover. Nearby is the sleep fishing village of Marawila where you'll find local culture and there are also bird sanctuaries and an eco-park nearby.

  • One of the largest pools in Sri Lanka
  • Bordered by a natural fresh lagoon and beach
  • Plenty of activities to experience
  • Wedding Packages Available

Top Tips from our Experts


Destination Executive

Because of its short airport transfer time, this is a great place to go for a pre/post tour stay. Combine the cultural sites of the heart of the island with an All Inclusive resort on the coast for a great taste of Sri Lanka.

Kotte, Sri Lanka

We came to Club Palm Bay for 2 week holiday. We were very surprised how nice the service is; The stuff is very friendly and tries to help in every case. The roomservice ( Nimesh Shashika) was very good too. They did their work very well and keeps the room very clean. The mans on the front desk were very nice as well. In case of any trouble they helped immedeatily. Our favourit places to be were on the Pool and the Main Bar. Where we relaxed with Cocktails and good food. We are very happy that we chose Club Palm Bay for our vacation & Guest relations officer Miss.NISHADHI very friendly we come back,

Great hotel but undertrained staff.

The rooms were extremely spacious. Buffets were amazing. It’s worth your while getting all inclusive. The pool was a little on the cold side though. The staff were so so friendly but very undertrained. We were there for the New Years Eve Dinner and there was just no organisation. It would take forever for drinks to arrive, the entertainment was shocking and they missed the New Years eve countdown! Also during buffets, children were allowed to run around and handle food. Drinks weren’t great.
