The hotel is small and intimate, but poorly maintained and the service is sometimes non existent - to the point of becoming quite annoying. The hotel rooms are tired, bathroom floors are dirt stained and even the ornamental bamboo plant appeared to have died several years ago. Upon closer inspection, the walls are dirty and seating upholstery stained. The location... More

We happened open this gem by accident. We were booked into Jetwing Lighthouse however the cricket team took it over. Maybe for the best as our stay at Era Beach was the most enjoyable and relaxing few days to finish off our hectic itinerary in Sri Lanka. While the property could do with some maintenance, the staff, atmosphere and setting... More

We ended up at this "boutique hotel" after our 1st choice hotel was booked out by a sporting team. The initial impressions were mixed but the ocean view location was very impressive.The welcome was very friendly & check in very easy. My comparison to the movie Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, well, I will provide reasons:- 1. Our bathroom door could... More

I arrived and was blown away from the time I walked into this hotel. We were greeted with fresh papaya juice and warm scented hand towels. The house was exactly how you would want your house to look if you won the lottery and the staff made it an even better experience. The food here is nothing short of amazing... More

We went there on June 2015 under Room Rush offer. It's well maintained villa type small hotel with a nice view of beach. We stayed in villa outside the main building and room was spacious and clean.

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

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
