Sun Siyam Pasikudah Reopens In Sri Lanka

Sun Siyam Pasikudah in Sri Lanka, a proud member of the boutique collection under Sun Siyam Resorts, has reopened after an extensive transformation and renovation.

The five-star boutique retreat is located on the unspoiled eastern coastline of Sri Lanka, approximately a six-hour scenic drive from Colombo’s Bandaranaike Airport.  Boasting just 34 spacious and contemporary, one-to-two-bedroom, garden or beach pavilions, with or without pools, Sun Siyam Pasikudah ensures an exclusive coastal experience, whether travelling as a couple, a family, or a group of friends.

Arshed Refai, General Manager at Sun Siyam Pasikudah, expressed his commitment to supporting and providing opportunities to local communities, particularly in the skilled fields of woodwork and carpentry. Arshed highlighted their extensive use of locally made and sourced products, showcasing their collaboration with local artisans and communities to create bespoke furniture, chandeliers and joinery items.

Originally launched in 2014 as Sun Aqua Pasikudah, the property underwent a rebranding in 2020, becoming part of the Sun Siyam Resorts collection and adopting the name Sun Siyam Pasikudah. The recent refurbishment undertaken by London based Studio Sixty7, has completely changed the interior design from design and colour concepts to new furniture, fixtures and fittings while preserving the property’s original structure.  This reopening marks a new chapter in Sun Siyam Pasikudah’s dedication to offering unforgettable experiences rooted in the beauty of Sri Lanka.

Deepak Booneady, CEO of Sun Siyam Resorts, commented, “The resort’s temporary closure and its subsequent hiatus during the global pandemic, allowed us the valuable opportunity to embark on a comprehensive journey of rebranding and property enhancement. Collaborating with Studio Sixty7, we meticulously redesigned the entire property, preserving its structural integrity while elevating every facet.’’

‘‘From the offerings and facilities to the level of service, we have refined the experience, aligning it with the renowned Sun Siyam vision. We take immense pride in reopening the resort as a distinguished member of the well-known Sun Siyam Resorts boutique collection portfolio, and extend a warm invitation to all guests to discover the magnificence of this remarkable part of Sri Lanka for themselves,” Deepak added.

Lee McNichol and Jose Rivero, founders and creative directors at Studio Sixty7 who played a crucial part in the interior design revamp said: “Studio Sixty7 are excited to showcase the rebirth of Sun Siyam Pasikudah, working alongside Sun Siyam Resorts, in the enchanting and richness of the Sri Lankan landscape. Our design philosophy for this incredible project was to create a boutique 5* interior with bold monochromatic interiors balanced with rich golden tones. For us, when designing this project, we wanted to create a unique, sophisticated, and chic interior on the magnificent and vibrant coastline of Pasikudah.

‘‘We were lucky to work with many local artisans and communities in creating bespoke furniture and joinery items throughout the resort, making sure we embrace and showcase the beauty that Sri Lanka has to give.  The project was truly a labour of love for all involved and has re-energised the resort to be ‘the’ place to be seen in Sri Lanka. We can’t wait for everyone to see.”
