As always Nisala Arana was perfect. Such a tranquil place to unwind and relax, yet within easy reach of Colombo. Tony is the go-to man and with his team ensures all your needs are met. The food was excellent - the carrot soup was divine! Clean, fresh rooms with lovely soft linen, spacious bathrooms and plenty of fluffy towels! The... More

We decided to get married in Sri Lanka, and plumped for the Nisala Arana as the venue for our reception (and for them to organise the ceremony at Bentota beach) - which turned out to be a great decision. The hotel (with only 5 rooms) is situated a 10 minute tuk tuk drive back from the beach, and can be... More

Nisala Arana will always be most dear to us and holds a very special place in our hearts. Our wedding day and indeed the joyful week before it was absolutely magical. We cannot wait to return! We initially contacted Ben who was extremely helpful, attentive and responsive to our questions and really demonstrated a great understanding of our requirements. He... More

We had a few days here with our parents and stayed in the Doctor's House. Very charming, spacious and comfortable. Beautiful garden setting, nice pool and lots of places to relax. Food was fantastic, as was the service. Away from the hustle and bustle of the town, but within a few minutes drive of the beaches, lagoon and other attractions.... More

We had an amazing time at Nisala Arana. It is tranquil, peaceful and perfect for chilling out. The rooms are spacious, modern and very clean. Staff I should say were excellent hosts and the food was delicious. Loved the Sri Lankan breakfast. We will definitely go back.

We stayed here for a week in mid/late April culminating in our daughter's wedding. We were looked after by all the team incredibly well, the food was superb, and the various elements of the big day all came together perfectly as organised by Ben who was very thorough in all details. There were tropical storms on several days (luckily not... More

The garden is amazing, the staff is like family, the interior is breathtaking and the food is delicious. Just go. We had a great time at the pool, going to the beach, visiting tempels, playing cards, relaxing in the garden, playing in the garden, doing yoga - relaxing ! Michelle Hviid, Denmark

We had three nights at Nisala Arana last month for my sister's wedding. A beautiful venue - hard to capture in a photo! It's the kind of place we'd been hoping to stay at in Sri Lanka - a little piece of paradise. The wedding itself was amazing. Great food, and the staff were fantastic. Especially Jerome, who looked after... More
