Aditya is an all suite boutique hotel on the glorious palm fringed coast, just 25 minutes north of Galle in Rathgama. It’s contemporary, open and spacious with excellent food, a large glistening swimming pool, and direct access onto a quiet beach. The décor is chic and modern with brightly coloured walls and fabrics making a welcome and fun change from the sleek and slightly serious boutique hotels found elsewhere in Sri Lanka. There are 12 glorious suites in total; each one has its own private Jacuzzi tub. The suites are named after Hindu sun gods and there are three choices: Shanthi Suites (these open out to small garden/courtyard), Sagara Suites (these all have ocean views and balconies) and the Surya Suite (this is an indulgent two-story suite with a large sun terrace). We feel that service here is excellent and very attentive. It makes a relaxing and indulgent start or end to a trip in Sri Lanka. The only downside is that it books up quickly.
