FOOD AND DRINK
The culinary brigade at Heritance Ahungalla is one of the best in Sri Lanka, having won numerous awards over the years. Most recently, in August 2011, they won awards for the Best Hotel Team and Best Culinary Team at the Culinary Arts Competition organized by the Chefs Guild of Sri Lanka.
So you can look forward to some excellent cuisine during your holiday!

SRI LANKAN FOOD
Traditional Sri Lankan food is a wonderful mix of taste, colour and aroma. Because the island's location made it a popular stopping-off point for foreign traders, indigenous spices such as cinnamon and cloves have been enriched by diverse culinary influences from around the world.For example, the Arabs introduced saffron and rose water, while the Portuguese not only brought chillies to the island but also culinary terms such as "temper", which is derived from the Portuguese word temperado, meaning to fry and season.
The Dutch introduced recipes rich in eggs and butter, like Breudher, a Dutch Christmas cake. There are also Malay influences, such as the steamed dessert watalappam and the rice dishes pilau and biriyani.

RESTAURANTS AND BARS
Our buffets in the Jute Restaurant will give you the opportunity to try a wide range of Sri Lankan food, as well as the best of international cuisine. With dozens of choices and regular theme nights, you need never eat the same dish twice!
For fine dining in a sophisticated ambience, we also offer a global à la carte dinner menu in the Upper Room.
And for special occasions, you must try our Heritance cuisine - an elegant Sri Lankan menu featuring the best local ingredients.
Or maybe you would like to dine where the waves break, on your private lantern-lit table on the beach.
If you're after something lighter, our 24-hour Mustard Coffee Shop offers a range of snacks, as well as a global à la carte menu and wine list.Or you could relax by the pool with an ice cream or celebrate with our signature cocktail in one of our bars.
The choice is yours!

SPA
At Diviyan Spa our philosophy is simple : we want to make you feel better and more beautiful. Our three fundamentals are professional expertise, professional treatments and professional products.
Our own line of blended pure massage oils and genuine herbal cosmetics are made in Sri Lanka from the finest natural ingredients.
Our honest and professional therapists from Bali are trained in our spa centre in Indonesia. They will ensure that you have a relaxing, rejuvenating, enjoyable and memorable experience.
Diviyan Spa offers a complete range of services to pamper you: choose from massage therapies, body treatments, facials and nail care. There is also a selection of packages combining several treatments.
Our treatment rooms include two rooms for couples, a manicure/pedicure room, steam room and sauna, and an open-air Jacuzzi. There are also lockers and showers.
We recommend that you book in advance and that you arrive 10 minutes before your appointment to fill in the consultation form. If you are having a massage, arrive half an hour early to use the steam room and sauna (this is free as part of your treatment).
Open: 10am to 8pm daily

MICE
With our superb pools and wonderful beach, we can't blame you if you choose to spend your time relaxing around the hotel.
We offer various activities, such as water aerobics and elephant rides, and entertainment - live bands and cultural shows in the Mirror Lounge by the Pool Bar in the evening. We also have our own nightclub and disco. As one of the few five-star hotel nightclubs in the area, we are also popular with the locals, and there can be a good crowd on Friday and Saturday nights.
If you'd like to explore a bit further, there's plenty to see in the local area, especially if you're a nature lover. You can learn what the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery is doing to help save local turtles, or go on a river trip on theMadu Ganga to see mangrove forests and prawn fishermen. Alternatively, you can take to the sea to go whale watching.
If you're interested in local culture and lifestyle, the nearest village of Ambalangoda is known for its antiques and masks, or you can see how moonstones are mined.
It's also fascinating to compare the landscaping styles of the Bawa brothers - hotel architect Geoffrey at Lunugangaand his younger sibling Bevis at Brief Garden
Slightly further afield, Galle is worth a visit for its brooding fort and colonial history.
If you do not have your own transport, we are happy to arrange a car and driver for you. Please ask at the travel desk for details.
Some activities or excursions may be seasonal or cancelled in poor weather. Participation is at your own risk.
