Buckingham Palace Rakawa ***

Located ‘deep south’ overlooking Rekawa’s tranquil lagoon, Buckingham Place puts the fisher and farmer village of Rekawa firmly on the ‘must visit’ list, whether for an entire vacation or for those passing through. Expect something a bit different. Fairly contemporary in design, but not sterile, stylish though not slave to it and, interactive in the true sense of the word.

Special people and wonderful hidden away places contribute an indefinable uniqueness that inspires many of Sri Lanka’s visitors to return – year after year. Our simple aim is that by what we offer and who we are, you too will be inspired to return one day. Expect something different. Contemporary in design but not sterile or soulless, stylish though not slave to it, sociable and interactive but in the old fashioned sense of the word.

Overlooking Rekawa’s tranquil lagoon, eleven special bedrooms and suites are just moments from a long stretch of deserted Indian Ocean beach. By day – explore our environs by canoe and bicycle or take a stroll or early morning jog along the beach; why not just laze with a good book and a picnic by the Turtle Point rock-pool? At the end of a hectic day in paradise return to your sanctuary – to enjoy sundowners, great local cuisine or something unusual – from an ever changing eclectic menu!

When the day is finally done, relax into the ambient comfort of a great room or make plans for your next day in paradise – as you gaze from your veranda over calming still waters of Rekawa Lagoon.
