The hotel is quite old (but done up after the 2004 tsunami) and the swimming pool has a cracked tile but then it is a must to stay in this iconic hotel if you are in Nilaveli. The space between the hotel and the beach is full of trees and beautiful and worth the stay. Newer hotels have come up... More

Nilaveli beach hotel was our last stop after travelling from the West coast across the hill country. We had been very fortunate that all our hotels had been amazing, very welcoming and friendly with wonderful rooms and amenities. As Nilaveli was one of the more expensive hotels and also the one we had picked for our final 4 nights, we... More

I visited NBH with not a high expectation, but as soon as we entered we were just amazed as the place was breathtaking. The room was decorated differently every time the room boy(Bandulla) cleans the room. All the other staff were friendly and helpful.

I travel to Nilaveli Beach resort in June 2014 with my friends. We had very high expectations about the Hotel. Food is average and buffet spread is less compared to rate they charge. The room i stayed is very old and needs immediate refurbishment. The floor tiles are damaged and AC is not properly functioning. Also swimming pool is not... More

We spent couple of nights at lovely Nilaveli Beach Hotel during our honeymoon. The place has the ambiance of a very basic beach side hotel. I must say the food out here is AMAZING. Especially the crab curry and specials from the menu board. The staff were very nice to us through our stay. Exceptional service They even gave us... More

I stayed for a few days in this hotel and I'm really happy about it. It's really well situated. The personal of the hotel was really friendly with us. Sayuru helped us whenever we needed help or advice.

This resort has the benefit of having placed the restaurant near the beach - which is rare in this area. We only had a meal here, which was fine. But wished we had stayed here, we stayed at another resort. The Nilaveli Beach Resort looked lovely, nice pool area and common areas looked stylish and clean.
