Lake Resort Development
Dedduwa - Galle
The “Dedduwa” project has potential to be the only one of its kind in Asia. It is based on the concept of a nature-immersive, conservation-based, experientially rich, leisure sector development that will become a showpiece for the country.
Located in Southern Sri Lanka, the 1,800-acre site is adjacent to the Dedduwa Lake, in close proximity to the Bentota Tourism Zone. A rich eco-system comprising paddy, marsh, wetlands and mangroves provides a quiet, serene and rural atmosphere featuring interesting biodiversity.
The site is one hour’s drive from Colombo, and 1.5 hours from the Bandaranaike International Airport. Alternatively, it can be reached in 10 minutes from a sea-plane landing zone in Bentota. The project aims to connect Bentota with Galle via a waterway that would create a tourism-based economic corridor. This development will partially address the demand for at least 30,000 rooms needed to meet the Gov ambition of 2X 2019 tourist arrivals in the next 5-7-year period.
