This review is for Mangrove Chalets. It needs to be made clear that the Mangrove Cabanas and chalets are separate accommodations along the beach from the each other. They are separated at the point at which the lagoon reaches the beach with the Chalets situated to the west. When you first arrive in Tangalle you come down the main road... More

I wondered how i would manage 4 nights but i didn't want to leave. Yes you can relax but you can also kayak the lovely lagoon behind the chalets. Visit the town and the old Dutch resthouse. Walk the beach and help Saman collect shells to make his bracelets. Stay up until after midnight waiting for the huge turtle that... More

Hubby and I spent three nights in chalet #1, right by the beach. We had an excellent stay here! It was so nice to relax and unwind and listen to the waves rolling in. Hammocks and beach chairs abound! We enjoyed our daily beach walk and we also ventured into the water near the reef; the staff can point this... More

We stayed at this place after 1,5 week travelling through sri lanka and we wanted a place at the beach. Well this was really perfect! Welcoming drink at arrival, nice views, hammocs, soft music, and a lovely cabana. At the beach! We were surprised that we could sleep that close to the water, it was nice to hear the waves... More

This is paradise! On a postcard. With a lot of really white people. The rooms are amazing, the beach and facilities are way above standard and the staff is excellent (though somewhat distant). Everything here, except the food, is very classy. If it weren't for the below average mixed western look alike overpriced substitute they serve here I would move... More

We were recommended to stay here by a friend - and it exceeded all our expectations. The beach cabanas are incredible; beautifully made out of driftwood and local wood with really thoughtful touches. The bathrooms are hidden down a trapdoor, which is fun. The beach is beautiful, but sadly you can't swim here. But there are hammocks in the shade... More

Stayed in Sri Lanka for 6 nights in Fantastic Mangrove cabana on the beach! 3 restaurants on the premises serving really tasty food, fresh fish and good coctails. Staff really friendly. Quiet place, great for relax, beaches almost empty. A bit of a shame we couldn't swim in the Ocean, there was a small area where you could jump into... More

I did not stay overnight, however, i ate a truly fantastic meal in a very dreamy tropical setting. There are young coconut trees planted in the sand for roughly an acre or more. The setting is very clean and serene. The salads I ate were very tropical and gourmet delicious. Service was of course exceedingly friendly and the rice and... More

Amazing surroundings, excellent food, nice service...and possibility to go conoeing for free on the beautiful lagoon. We spent 3 weeks in Sri Lanka and found the Mangrove Beach Cabanas very good value for money.

We booked for 3 nights in January during our 6 week holiday travelling in Sri Lanka, and loved it so much we stayed 6! This has to be one of the most beautiful, peaceful places in the world. Staff, particularly Kusum the chef, were amazing. We were fortunate to be present during a turtle hatching beside the restaurant, it was... More
