Kalutara North

Updated: April 2014

Petter’s Beach Inn is a nice Norwegian owned Guest House / Hotel with  a nice and good restaurant built in 2004/05 . It is situated by the beautiful beach at the south west coast (Kalutara North) 40 km South of Colombo.

The hotel consists of four houses and a nice garden. The family house is fully equipped (two floors/ 260 square meters) with three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, livingroom, kitchen and a 90 square meters terrace. Another house (one floor) have 5 nice rentable double rooms (standard double rooms) and a nice restaurant with a good kitchen. We also offer a large triple room in a separate bungalow with 2 fans, bathroom, cold/hot water, kitchen, sitting group and with a big terrace facing the ocean on top of the triple bed bungalow. On this terrace, we also have a mini-pool with a shower.

All rooms are decorated with original paintings by famous Sri Lankan painters. All double rooms have A/C which is included in the price. The fourth house is mainly for the staff.The beach is long and sandy with coconut palms. As an alternative to the nearby beach (5 meters), we recommend our swimming pool.

The rooms are clean and hold a high, western standard. Nevertheless, we offer very reasonable prices.

The restaurant offers both western and eastern food, also at reasonable prices. Breakfasts are included in the price. Please check our attractive prices. Our restaurant offers a la cart menu. 

You pay in cash (local currency, Euros, US dollars, GBP or NOK).

A daily breeze makes your stay comfortable even on the hottest days. The Kalutara area is also a perfect starting point for visiting other interesting places on this beautiful Island, like Colombo, Kandy, Hikkaduwa and Galle. We can arrange 1-2-3 day tours with A/C van, driver/guide and hotels, boat trips up the Kalutara river or out in the Indian ocean with or without fishing.
