From the moment of the first welcome at Era Beach you know that you in for an experience of a lifetime.

Era Beach holds a very special place in my heart as we had our first family holiday here after we got married. We also organized a post-wedding celebration here and despite initial hiccups with planning, the hotel staff managed to produce a wonderful Sri Lankan dinner for our guests. They outdid themselves by setting up a bar on the balcony... More

I stayed there with my family for 3 days mid April and ahd the most splendid time. There may have been small slip-ups in the service following the reduced staffing for the Sri Lankan New Year but that was most certainly made up for by generel willingness to go to extreme lengths to make the stay pleasant.

The hotel offers calm stay for the traveler. But in comparison to other boutique hotels, this hotel needs to further improve their quality of amenities and dining options. I booked two rooms, one on the upper floor and one on the ground floor. The upper floor room is quite comfortable and the bathroom is spacious. But it was surprising to... More

The location of this hotel was fabulous and the staff were really helpful, particularly Sanjeeva. It is a small, colonial style hotel right on the beach so was lovely and quiet. However, it was only a short and enjoyable ride to the centre of Galle by tuk tuk. We were on half board but were disappointed with the half board... More

Compared with the other Jetwing hotels we stayed at in Sri Lanka, this was an enormous disappointment. Sheets were torn, no hot water in one of the showers, and bathroom tap in one of the bathrooms broken. Also from a location point of view it was a mistake - too far from Galle.
