When we had an unexpected last-minute cancellation at a hotel nearby, Sanjis offered us a cabin at a very competitive price. He runs a friendly, comfortable and very relaxing place with a nice pool, good breakfast and candle light dinners on the beach. The cabins are perfectly designed for the tropics with open air bathrooms.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sanjis Seaside Cabanas! The place is located in the middle of nowhere, so perfect if you are looking for a little piece and quiet. You drive into the grounds and find four little bungalows (2 rooms each). Behind the bungalows, the open air restaurant building and a brand-new pool. Behind the pool, palm trees... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your comment and your suggestions. We are happy that you liked your stay at Sanjis. We have ordered a few chairs with backs now, so that our guest can sit more comfortable if they like. For beach dinner we use our chairs with no backs, as these can be brought to the beachside. Hope to... More

Sanjis has the most friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. After entering the gates, from the small dirt road you find the lovely architecture of the two guesthouses and the kitchen/ dining area set just back from a perfect paradise beach. The rooms are large, well kept, and the outdoor showers are a dream! On the long and totally unspoilt beach... More

The biggest advantage of Sanjis is the location: its remote (14km away from Tangalle) so in the off-season you will probably have the whole beach on your own. There are only 4 rooms in Sanjis: excellently designed, with an exquisite outdoor bathroom. Perfect for pairs. No air contition, but it's ok with the open bungalow design and a fan. Good... More

Sanjis is perfect if you are looking for a quiet retreat to get away from the hustle and bustle of moden life! It has four lovely, well appointed, clean and spacious cabanas. All are equipped with a wonderful private outdoor bathroom and a veranda with a swing. The cabanas are set in spacious grounds with a variety of birdlife and... More

This could be a good choice if you’re looking to really get away from it all. The hotel has 4 simple but comfortable cabanas set in a lovely garden, right on a magnificent, palm-tree-lined, almost deserted beach a few kilometres away from Tangalle. This is perfect for rest and relaxation if you want to get away from the usual tourist... More

We arrived at sanjis by chance and so delighted that we did. The accomodation is set in beautiful gardens right next to a deserted beach. Complete paradise, the most beautiful and peaceful location imaginable. The cabanas are spacious and very stylish with a lovely 4 poster bed. The best thing about the room was the lovely outside shower experience again... More

We decided on a whim to spend our last night in Sri Lanka at Sanjis and found this to be an excellent decision - actually we would have liked to stay longer, considering the beauty of the place and the friendliness of the staff. The four apartments are laid out in such a way that everybody can keep their privacy... More
