Stayed for 4 night and we loved all of it. The spacious room, with the lovely balcony, the nice pool, sunbeds and beach. We had a very friendly welcoming from the reception and she stayed being so kind and smiling all days. All staff were smiling and helpful. We stayed at 4. floor had a fabulous view over the ocean....

Great value and definitely worth the drive down from Colombo. Can't find any reason to fault the hotel. If you really need to relax and totally forget the rest of the world out there, this is the place to go. Food is good. Would recommend you have a beach barbeque at night and request the Devil's Dance for entertainment. Rooms... More

After a journey from 13 hours this was our first stop. And a good one! It has a perfect location and it' s a very agreable place to recover from an airplane travel. The wild sea, the two giant turtles that can be cuddled, the cocktails with a view... Staff is excellent and friendly, the food is good. The rooms... More

Just get the highway bus from Maharagama to Galle, and you can either catch a bus or a tuk tuk (approx. 800rs) to Chaaya. An excellent hotel... More
