This is a place where you immediately feel welcome and well looked after. A clean, beautiful and homely place situated between the beautiful beach and the idyllic temple. Moreover, with incredible, superb dining. Here, we want to return many times again!

We stayed three nights here and had a great time. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, the room was spotless and had everything we needed. The location is great - just off the beach and nice and quiet. The hot water pressure was not great, but who wants hot showers in this heat anyway? The wifi was also painfully slow... More

We're STILL here at the Ancient Tree! Pushpa and Lal have finished the work on their two new upstairs rooms! They are spacious and bright and one of them even has a kitchen so you can cook for yourself if you wish. Of course, you should still try the meals prepared by Pushpa as it is easily the best home...

They will give you precious tips for your stay and your holidays ! The breakfast is delicious and the beach nearby is perfect for swimming. If you are keen on surfing, it takes 15min by bus... More

Had a wonderful stay. The hospitality & breakfast is superb. Location is great. Night life is a step away Me and my friend was walking around looking for this Guest house for a while when we spotted a lady who called us over, to our amazement it was the owner Push Pa who was out looking for us and it...

The rooms and bathrooms are perfectly nice and clean. There are ceiling fans ins all the rooms and mosquito nets as well. But the major reason... More

We stayed almost 3 weeks with Pushpa and her lovely family even though we didn't plan to stay so long. We liked the place so much that we kept staying longer and longer. We loved the location of the house since it is not next to the main road and the beach area which is very busy and kind of... More

We stayed for three months at the Ancient Tree while doing a long yoga course and the place truly felt like home. Pushpa, Lal and their sweet kids little Ritmi (7) and Pahan (2) were wonderful hosts. Ritmi kindly gave us flowers every morning, Lal's big smile helped us to start the day and Pushpa is an excellent cook. The... More

The owner and a mother of two Puspha restored our faith in Sri Lankan people. She was nice, polite and effective. If you have time, try her dinner, we had a delicious vege curry and there was not a problem for her to fry an egg for our teenage (not eating anything) daughter. She has a cold beer in a... More
