Opened in June 2011, this idyllic beach escape became the first to open in Batticaloa after the dawning of peace in Sri Lanka. It has a laid-back feel and is recommended for families or even for couples on a romantic honeymoon.
'Maalu Maalu' (meaning ‘fish fish’) is a cry regularly heard from the local fisherman when selling their day’s catch. `Maalu’ is also very much a part of the interior décor and the design of this wonderful beach resort which is bringing much-needed employment to a community hoping for a better future.
The resort is designed along the lines of a 'wadiya' or fishing village with the public spaces and accommodation in the form of eco-friendly timber chalets with thatched roofs. It is designed in a semi-circle facing the sea which allows for spectacular views of the Indian Ocean from every angle. An infinity pool is the central focus with a broad timber deck where hours can be sent taking in the sun. Maalu Maalu maintains a strict eco-friendly policy and is designed according to the green building guidelines on energy and environment. The resort welcomes families with children and offers chalets and suites with connecting doorways. Maalu Maalu Resort and Spa is for those wishing for an unhurried and relaxing beach holiday on a beautiful and secluded region of this tropical island.
