Lovely experience! Would definitely recommend it to anyone! Ideal hideaway experience for the whole family; away from the hustle and bustle, but with all the amenities. Sisira and Indrani were great and the service was very good, not to mention the food that was absolutely fantastic.

This was the second time I have stayed at Alankuda and the second time around was better than I remembered. Its the perfect place to let everything go and just relax. We were 6 people (3 couples) travelling together and rented we one of the houses. Given that the house only had 2 rooms the management organised so that we... More

Perfect hideaway for relaxation off the busy lives of Colombo. Absolutely loved our stay at Alankuda beach . The location of the pools both sea water and normal water were blissful. Very friendly staff who attended us attentively and excellently. Really love the Eco concept and the unique way in which the rooms are designed. Looking forward to come back... More

We had a wonderful and ideally relaxing time in this secluded little hideaway... It almost felt like we had the whole place to ourselves... The place was made even more welcoming by the friendly staff, especially Sebastian, who gives you an excellent level of service along with allowing your privacy... If you want to just relax and get away from... More

We stayed there for 3 days and got the impression this is one of the places where we normally do not pay more than 40$. The accomodation is not bad, but we are speaking about hutts. The beach is long and empty, but with strong winds, nice for windsurfing , but not for beach live. For dinner there is a... More

Thank you Roberto, Vera and Sebastian for the wonderful time we had at Bar Reef Resort. This is barefoot luxury - so it is not for people who need air conditioning, room service or towels everyday. But the Villa Samara - where we stayed - was clean, bed was comfortable, the fan worked. There is no doubt that a few... More

We could not enjoy our stay here as many of us lost money from our wallets kept in the rooms. We were having breakfast and when we went back to the rooms the money was stolen. Even the drivers wallet was stolen from the drivers quarters. After writing to the owners for months only we were able to recover the... More

Although the people are friendly and the food was good. I wouldn't go back or recommend it. It's over priced and for my three young kids, boring! I've traveled all over the world and here you don't get your moneys worth, I felt riped off!

12 of us (8 adults and 4 kids) had a rare and novel experience when we stayed 2 nights at a villa in Bar Reef Resort. Resort was very clean and the villa with its large veranda, big garden and open air showers gave the feeling that we were staying in a village house. Veranda has 2 sets of L... More

There are four main spots on this beach within different concepts but all of them are so beautiful and cozy. I stayed at Udekki but visited all the Alankuda beach small resorts and I wouldn't know which one I will suggest. Alankuda is becoming one of the best hot spot in the world for kite surfing lovers. From May to... More
