Dining in Pasikudah

Sri Lankan cuisine ignites the senses, from the heat of aromatic curries to salted fish in all its permutations. Curries are irresistible – the cornerstone of Sri Lankan culinary arts. They’re served up in myriad forms and colours – fish, beetroot, jackfruit – fresh, fragrant and full of flavour. Rice is rich with coconut cream; roti is soft and doughy, perfect for soaking up a warm lentil dal. Snacks and treats are more-ish – crispy cassava chips, fried nuts and seeds, and the comfortingly calorie-rich stir-fried kottu. At Sun Aqua Pasikudah, our kitchen serves up the full spectrum of authentic Sri Lankan dishes, along with a select range of international cuisine. Simple yet elegant dishes from the world's greatest culinary traditions are authentically prepared with the finest ingredients, including locally sourced organic produce and herbs from the garden. 


Irresistible flavours from around the world paired with top drops from the wine cellar. Fresh-caught seafood is offered daily, with zesty sides of homegrown veg or tangy fruit and coconut salads. Share a light crispy pizza for lunch. Charge up with a sugar-laden iced coffee in the afternoon. Enjoy the sumptuous serenity of evening with dinner al fresco, watching dusk turn to night. Count the stars with a smoky, aged Scotch before a late-night stroll along the beach.
