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

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights during a trip around the south of Sri Lanka. On the whole, this is a lovely hotel. The room was spotless and huge, with large double bed, walk in wardrobe and sofa area. Bathroom was also very clean and equipped with shampoo, shower gel etc. Food at the restaurant is brilliant!...

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.

We stayed at the Era Beach for six nights and we had a wonderful time. It is a very intimate, small hotel and for us, this is part of its beauty. The location is perfect as it is right on the beach with fabulous views and gorgeous sunsets. We had a sea view room which was large, clean and very... More

This was our chill-out in January after touring Sri Lanka and was perfect. An architectural gem of a boutique hotel, built in the minimalist Dutch colonial style of perfect symmetry, with only 7 rooms, nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. Our room (Sea View 1) was massive with excellent shower room and storage space. The hotel aims... More
