Staff made our stay very enjoyable and informed us of where to eat and surf in quite season. We will definitely return and stay for longer. We felt very welcomed and comfortable at... More

He always replied within a few hours, he provided insight, suggestions and general help. We booked our transport from CMB airport through Chamara as the arranged price was... More

We had the top room here, which was very spacious, clean with a huge balcony. Neela's was very quiet at the time of our stay, but we still had a nice stay, and their restaurant is right on the beach. The staff are also helpful

We chose to spend a couple of days chilling out after a long tour of the island. Neela's provided a lovely, quiet space for this - the rooms were very well presented and (in room No.10) we were far enough away from the main road too. As usual, the air con was very welcome! The restaurant stretching out onto the... More

We stayed here in February. We chose Hikaduwa as my husband wanted to surf and I wanted to chill on a beach for ten days and we both loved the destination. The Guest House was lovely, we had a really nice four poster bed with an en suite wet room and a nice balcony. The whole family and staff made... More

2013 we came for two nights and stayed three weeks. This time we came for 18 days: It felt like coming home. Neela's son and guesthouse manager Chamera welcomed us like old friends, as did Suranga, the wonderful head waiter. Last year we ate out a lot, but we found that the food at Neela's is better than elsewhere, so... More

We stayed there for two nights in March 2014. Rooms were very clean, and I have to say the first place in Sri Lanka where it all smelled like flowers during our whole stay!! It was very nice to stay there for end of our trip. Only negative thing is that restaurant was a bit pricy for the offer. But... More
