Are you dreaming to watch the sunrise and lay along the sandy shores, not getting disturbed by the simple and calm waves? Longing for a home away from home? Need to LIVE few days for yourself with recollecting memories, without been disturbed by your office hazards, the line of emails coming to your office mail, not getting stressed over never ending assignments or the presentation you would be having the next morning? I had one of a kind. Sri Lanka – the living paradise.
It was my college & the most awaited one to rest & relax from strenuous exams & line of assignments. I was dreaming of a time to LIVE & FEEL.Though I have traveled a lot to hill country & cultural triangle, I have never been to the east coast of my country. After hearing fascinating stories about the golden beaches with breathe taking scenery in Nilawelli & Passikudah, I was so impatient toward my holiday plan.
I would say Passikudah on the east coast is undoubtedly one of the best beach destinations in Sri Lanka. Starting from Colombo, it was quite a long drive, but it was of course a scenic drive through some charming landscapes and traditional local villages. The thoughts I had about Passikudah to be a rural area with nasty roads & pat holes, were completely changed to see the flourishing development in the areas. Together with the charming, crystal clear water & sandy beaches, I was completely lost in the paradise.
Being a tropical destination, the temperature in Passikudah is very warm with of sunshine, but I fall in love with the lovely setting which consoled me with the constant wind. We spent the overnight in one property that stands out to offer the best; Uga Bay, an elegant luxury beach resort hotel. My stay for 03 nights there, offered me with the perfect tropical-paradise charm.
Most of the time, I spent on the beach recollecting all memories, enjoying the breeze & feeling like heaven. Not only the beach front with the soft white sand and calm waters, but the lush greenery that surrounds the property gave me the perfect colour and feel. And at night, the best view was the pool area, lit with twinkling illuminative tiny bulbs reflecting the shining stars in the far away milky sky.
I could enjoy the luxury, comfort and elegance at its best way during my holiday, which still gives me memories to recollect on when I am busy with all hectic life pinching me with office burden & stress. Even the thought of the curved coves Passikudah beach resembling the shiny edge of a serrated sickle & the white sand to walk on, giving the sensation of a warm wooly surface, gives me the heavenly feeling to run on to beach again & again.
