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

We booked at Suriya Arana after being put off by the prices of some of the 4* and 5* hotels in Negombo. Suriya Arana is a bed and breakfast, with the facilities of a hotel. We were fortunate to stay in the newly opened suite that had a big king bed, 2 single beds, a large balcony and spa bath.... More

NIce guest house run by a friendly couple. Other staff is also helpful. Very warm welcome, big rooms with clean bedding and bathroom, nice pool (3 x 5m), decent breakfast and other food. Will definitely stay again if I visit again. There is free Wifi but recption is not always working 100%.

Really clean and neat family owned bnb a couple minutes away from the beach. The manager/owner is very friendly and genuine and in addition cooks great home made food. Service could not be much better and the whole family makes you feel right at home which was nice for me as a lonely backpacker. Best wishes /Hampus
