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. Sam helped us sort out a cell phone dilemma and arranged for transport to Colombo to catch the train to Kandy. The pool is... More

Very nice little guest house with friendly staff and nice rooms. Pool is nice for a cool off and the beach is a five minute walk away. Not many activities around but good for a first night in Sri Lanka if you are heading on. The breakfast is quite standard.

Saman & Judith made my daughter and I and our party most welcome before our long trip back to England. The room was so comfortable and the food brilliant, their hospitality limitless and nothing was too much trouble. The pool and dining area were really pleasant and welcoming to all guests and a very pleasant last evening of our holiday... More
