An ancient rest for travelers, an 'Ambalama' was usually built under the patronage of village or regional elite and maintained by the Sril lankan villages. A pot of drinking water was on hand to quench the thirst of a tired traveler – a concept based on the Buddhist philosophy of `Dhana’, the act of giving.

Age-old literature characterizes the Ambalama additionally as a meeting place for the king's court to consider matters of state, as well as a place to collect a levy or to mete out justice. It was a place to spin a yarn, recite a verse, and narrate a story or just gossip. One could hold a meeting or consultation, or just partake of a meal in enjoyable surroundings.

We formed this resort as an ancient Ambalama – an ancient name meaning ‘rest pavilion providing shelter for travelers’, with added touches of modernity. Ambalama Leisure Lounge is one of the finest boutique hotels in Sri Lanka, taking the boutique concept to a whole new level on this wonderful island.
