Looking out over the Amethyst Resort you'll see lush green gardens, and beyond, a clear expanse of beautiful blue water. The reefs are teeming with colourful fish. While the sea is warm and surprisingly shallow - you can walk out for kilometres and the water only reaches ankle high. The hotel sits right on the coast at Passikudah on the east of the island. With its long sandy beaches and beautiful horizons, it is a stunning holiday destination.
When you stay at the Amethyst Resort, you'll always be within easy reach of the beach. Just step out of the hotel and take the bridge over the river down to the beach. It's one of the real treats about staying here - everything you need is always close at hand.
Inside, the Amethyst Resort is a wonderfully bright and welcoming place. There's a fresh, contemporary feel to the décor. Furnishings are stylishly modern too. Your room at the Amethyst Hotel is bright and spacious with a veranda opening out onto the gardens. It's also air conditioned and comes with various facilities including a TV, iPod dock, mini bar, telephone, safety deposit box, hairdryer and drinks making facilities.
The hotel's beautiful swimming pool is another wide open space with sun loungers and a perimeter of trees. At night, the pool is illuminated so that it looks like a starry sky; just one more special extra touch that makes staying at the Amethyst Resort such a treat for the senses. There are great places to eat and drink at the Amethyst Resort, including the hotel's very own pub. The hotel restaurant specialises in freshly prepared local specialities, with enough choice to keep everyone happy.
