Our story

Miriam and Laurie opened PALM in 2019. They traced Miriam’s Sri Lankan roots, discovered a sprawling old coconut plantation between the mangroves and paddy fields of Ahangama and instantly fell in love.

The boho spirit of south Sri Lanka’s beaches and surf breaks that first drew in the hippies and surfers in the 1960s seemed like the perfect place to create their own unique blend of Shoreditch-infused tropical architecture.

PALM now bring a little slice of East London modernism to the Ahangama jungle.
