Stayed @ thalsevana in late September for the 2 nights. This hotel has the largest bedrooms in any hotel that I have stayed globally, you can easily fit in 6 people . The toilet too is large. There is a balcony over looking the ocean and its a great sight. The hotel has been open for some time is still... More

I have stayed at Thalsevena 3 times and it gets better each time. They are really trying to make it a top resort and are doing a lot of work. The new block is finished and rooms have a great outlook to the ocean. The new swimming pool is almost complete..An old railway carriage has been made into a boutique... More

Visited with family and friends last weekend. We initially booked the dormitory but soon figured it wasn't for families with kids. specially with tall bends. Then luckily we found out that 4 luxury rooms were available and we moved into those. The rooms were very nice, clean and spacious. The staff was polite and tried to help in which ever... More

Nice rooms , very spacious, friendly staff, beach front, good food , one thing that we would recommend is having the light switches near the bed. The family rooms are very spacious but the shower cubicle is too small, suggest to expand that a little

It's a beautifully located hotel, run by very friendly & courteous servicemen. (Mostly Army) The traveller tip on not going for the cheaper rooms (R's.5000/) is a good one. The standard is not consistent. Some rooms are large & some rather limited in size......with minuscule bathrooms. The hot water doesn't work in most of them & the bidet showers are... More

Spend a couple of days and must say it is value for money! Air-conditioned, comfortable bedding was welcoming and helped with sound sleep after a day of travel in Jaffna heat. Friendly staff though service could be better with more training and I had dinner once, must say food was very good. Areas to improve are, since it is managed... More
