To get up close with the beach, this place is def it! A colonial styled villa my friends and I shared. The room was neat, although we did face issues like leaking ceilings and air conditioners not working. Food was not really up to the mark. Pretty priced too. Orders took time to come. But I am happy about the... More

If all you want is a great view and a place to stay by the beach then by all means go to Era. The only highlight about this place is the view and the proximity to the beach. The rooms are rustic and nice. But the locks in the rooms were broken. One of our friends rooms - the AC... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in July. The hotel itself is stunning with an infinity pool and views out to the ocean. It is also set on a small beach which is private and palm fringed. Sun beds are positioned so you look out over the ocean and beach...it is rather dreamy here! The hotel only has 7 rooms... More

The room we stayed in was spacious, tasteful and beautifully maintained. The pool is completely safe, about wait deep for an adult. Being by the... More

Spent just one night at this wonderful place. Had a fantastic deal via Jetwing's "Room Rush" offer. A perfect retreat spot, quiet, small, personalised service, wonderful spacious rooms. The meals were super. Would go back in a heart beat if room rush would offer those discounts more often. Otherwise of course you are still paying for a fantastic holiday spot.... More

During a private tour of Sri Lanka, my spouse and I, along with one other, were booked into this hotel by our tour company. This was one of two of the most beautiful places we stayed during our 12 days in country. A colonial-styled hotel with white walls, heavy wooden doors and shutters that evoke a bygone era, it brings... More

From the moment of the first welcome at Era Beach you know that you in for an experience of a lifetime. True to its name Era Beach transports you back to an era of colonial extravagance which is not only reflected in the perfectly symmetrical, pillared and naturally ventilated architecture but also the spectacular and personfiied hospitality extended to you...

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
