Refurbished in 2019 Udekki provides guests with a rare combination of luxury, rustic style, and seclusion. The villas have been designed to fuse the unique style and influence of the Middle East and North Africa with the colour and vitality of tropical Sri Lanka. The beautiful antique features of the villas highlight the rich heritage of the island. With two private villas and a shared villa consisting of five individual suites on the estate, Udekki provides complete privacy along with first class accommodation and hospitality. Each of the two private villas incorporates air conditioned bedrooms, spacious living areas, satellite TV, a central courtyard, and large open front veranda with views to the pool and sea. The five suites in the shared villa are spacious and airy, with ceiling fans and air conditioning, and views through the gardens. The new additions to Udekki, Loft D situated above Villa 343, and Loft M situated above of Villa 346, have stunning views of the ocean. They are spacious and the many large antique windows provide ocean views from your bed.

We stayed in one of the spacious villas and everything else was amazing, thanks to Dean and his staff. Lunch at the beach hut was wonderful and we were served some of the best Sri Lankan rice and curry around! Udekki was walking distance from Dolphin Beach Resort, we were lucky to stay at both properties and have lovely meals in between!

We ended our two weeks touring Sri Lanka with a three day stay at Udekki and it was without doubt the highlight of the holiday. We were so well looked after by Dean and his team that we felt nothing was too much trouble. The food, suggested and prepared by Dean and chef, was superb and we were very spoilt as there was only us and one other guest at the hotel during our stay. The trip to see the dolphins was enormous fun, just sad not to see any whales but a good excuse to return. Thank you to Dean and team for such a perfect finale to our wonderful holiday.

We loved Udekki. It is a perfect boutique hotel set on a magic stretch of beach and with oudles of character. We started in the rooftop loft suite and were then upgraded to a Villa: I am not sure which we preferred, they were both wonderful. The hotel is managed by Dean, who really cares that we enjoy ourselves. Honestly nothing appears to be too much trouble for him, and he does provide excellent,excellent food. Make sure you have dinner or lunch in the tree house overlooking the beach. We were on full board but Dean was delighted to cook anything for us, including crab curry and an outstanding tuna tartar. Total generosity for a full board ticket. We adore the setup in the hotel, particularly the individual dining areas and also the feeling of space around the pool and the beach, with masses of varied places to relax, in sun or shade. Drinks are good value for money. The Dolphin watching is not to be missed, and also do the lagoon trip. Thanks Dean, it was a lovely stay.

The Udekki Resort in Alankuda, Kalpitiya is a wonderful place to stay on the north-east coast of Sri Lanka. With a large pool area, a great selection of food and even and opportunity of receiving real ayurvedic massages this is must visit gem. The staff is very friendly and helpful! A great place to relax and rest. Highly recommended!
