Returned again and greeted now as family, As before the professionalism and hospitality of Royston and his staff surpassed all our expectations. The Beach lodge is about 20 minutes from Colombo Airport at the quiet end of Negombo beach. This time we stayed in the new room (number 9) which is directly on the beach with an outside sit out...

The Beach Lodge is located at the northern end of Negombo beach, everything walkable. From the airport you have 20 min by car. The rooms are set up with love. No AC, bed and hot shower ok. Nice setting with palm trees, they use for making Arack. Travel Agency of the hotel was top, we booked a car with driver... More

The staff are super friendly. We just had a traditional lunch in the back yard facing the beach. Good experience. The airport is not too far from this place. Though we didn't reserve a room, but looks like a good place for night-life.

Travelled for R&R from busy work in Maldives, my first destination in my one week Sri lanka trip. Beautiful, calm, peaceful with just enough activities and nightlife in nearby bars and clubs. Staff was very friendly and accommodating, remember your details as what you prefer for breakfast and similar. Location is beautiful just on the beach, the owners are very... More

Super friendly staff, we stayed here twice on our travels & felt at home both times. Recommend getting a room on the first floor with a view of the beach. The rooms could do with a spruce up, a bit dated but still okay. Good location too just north of the main strip. Also a real bonus Rohan's Place is... More

Good place to stopover to begin your journey in Sri Lanka. Amazing food and extremely friendly staff especially Tissa. Beautiful beach area, dodgy spa across the road but Jasmine spa was quite good. Basic room, nice views though. Really enjoyed place.

We were staying at Jetwing Sea close to The Beach Lodge, so we used to walk over for a small meal at lunchtime. Good location direct on the Beach with choise to set outside on the sand or under roof. They serve really cold beer. And the meals we had were ok. Not too much and not to little. Give... More

If you want a quintessential beachside holiday, Negombo is the place to be, and the Beach Lodge is the place to stay. Located on the shores of the Indian Ocean, this picture-postcard guesthouse and restaurant provides everything you need for a perfect seaside escape. It’s got rolling waves in a tepid sea and sand that stretches from the shore right... More

After sending many colleagues to The Beach Lodge I recently finally got to see it for myself. On the periphery of Negombos' nightlife it is a quiet, beachfront hotel with a lovely laid back atmosphere. The staff were exceptional in the friendliness and making sure that there was nothing I needed. The food - freshly caught Sri Lankan style crab... More

Came to this place a couple of times during our stay in Negombo. It was recommended by our guesthouse to chill out on the beach (Morning Star). Everyone is so friendly, great service and good food as well. Only drawback was the lack of good coffee, but that seems to be a major problem in Sri Lanka.
