Lovely stay, with a very good homemade cuisine, large rooms, pleasant common spaces. Very kind staff, with two smiling young boys. The tenant speaks various languages, Italian included. Small quiet structure, breakfast and dinner with buffet

Because we stayed two nights we got a free upgrade from a standard double to the luxury room with a huge! bed, a small balcony and a warm nice shower. Breakfast is included, with freshly baked omelets or... More

Stayed one night after arriving at the airport at 8 PM. It's conveniently located. Children (6 & 4) liked the small but cosy pool. Nice garden to get used to Sri Lanka climate and listed to all the birds. Extra bed (4th bed) had a terrible thin mattress, only good for very small child. The fridge was not working. Generally,...

This was the first place we stayed in Sri Lanka. Judith and Saman arranged for us to be picked up at the airport at 03:00 in the morning by the excellent driver Malin. What followed was an amazing combination of professionalism and warmth. We were only going to stay there two nights, but ended up letting Saman arrange a tour... More

Recently discovered Sri Lanka. Stayed at this hotel for my birthday celebration Apr 22-24. The hotel was great, BUT the staff was incredible. The young man that made our room, I regret not having his name, decorated patiently my bed with leaves forming Happy Birthday, took time to form towels into elephants and kept room spotless. Rooms were very ample,... More

We stayed at Suriya Arana our first couple of nights, when we arrived to Sri Lanka and the last night before departure. We felt lucky to start and end our trip here. Saman and Judith(the couple, who owns the hotel) are amazing people, who made us feel at home right away. We were offered a guided trip around Sri Lanka... More

Very nice place that feels like home! This hotel is close to Bandaranaike International Airport and only 10-minute walk from the beach. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the food is delicious.

On 28 December 2014 my mother, aunt, cousin and I spent our first night in superb Sri Lanka in the homely and welcoming environment of Suriya Arana. Judith and Saman made us feel immediately welcome and as though we were part of Sri Lankan family. The upstairs/downstairs family room was clean, comfortable and suited our needs. The outdoor patio and... More

Sam picked us up at the airport and Judith served us tea at 0500 when we arrived at the guesthouse. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Sam and Judith were kind and always able to help.
