This was the most comfortable place that I stayed in Sri Lanka during my week visit. There is hot water in the shower, which is a rare find. The bed is comfortable. The breakfast is good. It is only a dollar tuk tuk ride to the restaurants. This was a nice place to start and end our tour.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night at the beginning of our trip. It's more of a homestay than a hotel. The room was very basic but everything was clean. The owners were friendly and sat to talk with us. They also tried to sell us some tours or services but we have already had everything booked before we... More

After our 10 hour flight and 15 minute drive, we were taken to this hotel. We we're welcomed with a nice cold drink and friendly welcome by Judith. Our room was beautiful, clean and tidy, and was very quite. Would go back to this hotel. I don't know how much this hotel cost as we done a tour package.

The first experience was very bad. We came at around 12 in the night and were given a small room which had no hot water shower although we booked an apartment room (which comes with a small kitchen). We were not given the apartment room until we asked about it the following morning. Beak first was ok ,but nothing much.... More

We chose this accommodation for our last two nights in Sri Lanka - proximity to airport, beach, last minute shopping were all guiding our choice. Add to that the wonderful traditional food, if that is your fancy, friendly multilingual owners, pleasant garden areas for meals and relaxation plus beautiful orchids, spacious comfortable rooms ( with more modern ones being built...

We stayed twice at Suriya Arana. Saman helped us plan our first two weeks in Sri Lanka. Thanks too him we had a great tour. The rooms were spacious and clean with good beds. Judith is a very good cook and we had some tasty meals!

I arrived in to Negombo early hours with a few changes to arrival times. The Guest house owners were very good in accommodating for these changes. They collected me from the airport and actually allowed me a few more hours stay in the room to allow me to rest before travelling on. This was my first time travelling alone. They... More

We stayed here as a base for getting to the airport in the morning. We were welcomed with a delicious fruit smoothie on arrival, and feasted on wonderful grilled prawns fresh from the lagoon. The owners were extremely friendly, and obviously very experienced. The rooms seemed to vary in quality, I'd recommend getting one of the new rooms as they... More

We arrived into Colombo airport in the early hours of the morning so it was both lovely and surprising to be greeted by the owners who couldn't do enough for us. This place is simple and basic. Room was clean, bed comfy and breakfast was served on the lawn.

Suriya Arana is located off the main street of Negombo, so it is a very quiet and private place. You can walk to the beach in 4 minutes, best through the Jetwing-Hotel-Complex (just walk through). It is also very clean, and the owners Judith and Sam are very friendly and helpful. They will also cook for you, if you order... More
