Shinagawa Beach is a contemporary boutique hotel with a spectacular beach frontage in Balapitiya on the West Coast. The hotel is set in a secluded spot where the golden beaches are unspoilt and safe for swimming during the season from December to April. This modern 26 room boutique hotel is designed to take in breathtaking views of the Indian Ocean from its bedrooms and public spaces. Enter through the main reception and step out to a central courtyard with a lengthy swimming pool looking out to the gardens and sea beyond. Spend your days relaxing on the sun-kissed beaches and indulge in romantic candle lit dinners by the sea. Shinagawa Beach is the sister property of The River House in Balapitiya and Tamarind Hill in Galle, and is owned by Asia Leisure.
The 26 Deluxe Rooms and Suites are spacious and open out to private balconies with sea views. The well appointed bedrooms are furnished with king-size beds and ensuite bathrooms have bath tubs and h/w showers. In-room facilities include a/c, overhead fans, LED TV with satellite channels, mini-bar, tea/coffee facility, complimentary wifi, electronic safe, bathrobe and slippers, room service and laundry service.
Dine on Sri Lankan and international cuisine at the main restaurant. Special dinners are also organised on the beach or in the privacy of your own bedroom. Cool off with a dip in the swimming pool. The broad palm fringed beach that fronts Shinagawa is perfect for hours of relaxation. The ocean is safe for swimming only during the season.
Why We Like It
Beach hotels of this size are not common in Sri Lanka which makes this 4-star option, on an excellent beach, particularly distinctive.
Shinagawa Beach promotes energy and water-saving while also encouraging guests and staff alike to separate their waste. Menus can be accessed via QR codes, and the hotel readily provides information on how guests can be more responsible as travellers.
Balapitiya is located in between Bentota and Hikkaduwa where there are plenty of watersports on offer. The historic city of Galle is 45 minutes south. The journey from Colombo’s international airport takes about two hours via the Southern Highway.
