We had a chance to stay at this property one night at the day of arrival. The place felt like home and perfectly suited for a family. The owner was really helpful and the rooms were spacious. The swimming pool is rather small (but they do have one), the staff was helpful, rooms clean (though some items were old and... More

This guesthouse is in a quiet street off the main street at Negombo Beach. Rooms were clean and spacious. The pool is a nice touch after hot days at the beach Hosts very accommodating. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet Saman, but he was very helpful organising transport for us by phone.

The room was clean and very comfortable. The service was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent, food made to order. We also had some food... More

Judith is amazing! She arranged collection from airport and onward travel for us - both drivers were fantastic. It was a wonderful, personal stay. She cooked the best jumbo prawns we've ever eaten by the pool side. Room was very high standard, very clean and a very big comfortable bed! Perfect before or after flying or for a trip in... More

A nice place, some beautiful rooms and a family atmosphere. Judith is an excellent cook (her rice and curry is an experience) and her husband Saman is a perfect travel organizer. If you want to plan everything they will help you with the maximum level of flexibility

No wifi in the room had to come down to the lobby... The room was average. Had a mosquito net as there were plenty around. Not worth the money. Breakfast was average, however the two young boys working were extremely polite and helpful. Always greeted us with a smile.

We stayed one night at Suriya Arana on arrival in Sri Lanka. The hotel was recommended to us by our tour company, Off2SriLanka tours, and I can understand why. We were met by very friendly faces, a welcome drink and were led to our room. The room was comfortable and clean. The hosts are ever present and always willing to... More

Most travellers end up in Negombo at the start and end of their Sri Lankan adventure. We were no exception, but having foundSuriya Arana our time in Negombo will definitely become longer than the one or two nights of previous trips. This is a small, family run guesthouse and the lovely hosts Judith and Sam and their boys do anything... More
