It was the best place in Sri Lanka. Me and my boyfriend stayed here 4 nights and we really enjoyed it. Room was so big and comfortable. Samantha is really nice and he helped us a lot. He prepared us lunch (I have never eaten such good spaghetti with calamari in my life). He also prepared us fish for a... More

Fine rest at careful and kind Samantha! We borrowed in its boarding house of 3 rooms. Rooms are modest, but are pure and in them there is all necessary. But the most important is Sam's care. Its food was more tasty and cheaper, than at restaurants ashore. The excursions organized by it were also inexpensive and are very accurately organized.... More

We spent a while trying to find lodgings with lots of greenery and some quiet. Most places were either booked or did not have much in the way of plant life. However, FF was a veritable botanical garden, coconut trees, bushes, shrubs (and grubs). There a monkeys far up in the trees and we saw a 6ft monitor lizard just... More

This is a beautiful place to stay surrounded by trees and water it feels like you are in a treehouse on an island and not on the main road. Sam is an excellent host who helped us book whale watching at a very fair price and helped us with all our queries. Definately the best value so far. Great shower... More

Great place, basic rooms with own bathroom. Cold water only, right across from the beach. Cooler coz under shade of trees and right across the road from the beach. A great place for only 1250 rp a night.

Guesthouse has great location, 50m from the beach, restaurants and shops are very close, but main attraction is guesthouse itself - it is surrounded by real flora and fauna. There is small wooden bridge across the river, which connects guesthouse and reception, owners are very friendly and price is around 3000rs, which is OK. Only troble is that there is... More

The name says it all, Flora & Fauna is full of it! We seen Monitor Lizards, Snakes, Iguanas & the Allusive Blue Bird. Samantha is a legend, helpful and knowledgeable. Reletively cheap too only around €17 per night. Close to beach.

Stayed here on my second week in Sri Lanka and repeated two weeks later. Quality rooms, clean and comfortable. The owners are really friendly and hospitable who leave you to your own devices in this beautiful tropical garden set by a little river and enriched with exotic wild life. We were never hassled to spend money on tours, etc. However,... More

Great guest house. Clean, well priced and across the road from beach. The staff our friendly and have a hands off approach e.g. Not trying to sell you tours etc and not bothering guests. However, when they are requested upon they are prompt and friendly. Like I said in the title a great guest house, however I am not a... More
