We stayed in a chalet for 3 nights at the end of our holiday. It was simply perfect. What a beautiful beach! Totally unspoiled. And we were impressed with generous 'garden' - particularly given that there are only 9 rooms. On equivalent beaches in Thailand, we've seen rows and rows of chalets squeezed in to similar spaces. The beach bar... More

The overall setting is great: not too many chalets on the beach (we were in the Mangrove Beach Chalets), providing basic luxury and good authentic charm, good beds. Most stunning spot for breakfast and lunch at the beach bar, perfectly integrated in the natural environment between the rough sea (however with a "natural rock pool" which allows safe and very...

A wonderfully peaceful hotel cabanas setting long the beach. It is a real special place to chill, relax on the beach and bath on the sea. This place offer a special and safe little bay to bath. We stayed in the chalets surrounded by coconuts and palms. Amazing restaurant area on a well designed platform over the lake. Delicious food... More

You know all those idyllic, Palm-tree fringed beaches that you see in movies and guidebooks? Well it's a fact that they took all the photos here! Seriously, a very laid back place - bonus points for the rocks which create a natural, safe swimming hole in the sea and the expansive neighbouring lagoon which you can explore in kayaks. We...

My wife & I got mmarried at Mangrove in July this year and it was the perfect piece of paradise. We have stayed in Tangalle 4 times before at different places but Mangrove is definitely the most beautiful spot (hence getting married there). The staff are amazing (Jeevan you are a legend) Ranil without you the place wouldn't be the... More

We loved this place. We stayed in one of the family chalets, which are set back from the beach in a coconut grove, but really are just meters from the water's edge. This place is perfect for spending a few relaxing days. We only stayed for three nights but could have stayed a whole week. Personally I think the beach... More

The fist thing we thought when we arrived: WOW!!! Its so beautiful. The cottage is really nice, with a bathroom in the cellar. The room is basic, but has a musquitonet and a fan. Really special to hear the sea and the animals. The people working there are great. Very friendly and helpful. They arranged our yala safari and driver... More

We stayed in a family chalet which is located in a beach garden with palm trees. This garden takes away most of the direct view to the ocean, but also provides shade and tranquility. The chalet is very comfortable with a great shower. It does not have an airco, but the open structure of the windows and the fan provide... More

This place is paradise... Creating pure and utter relaxation! We stayed in one of the villas on the beach front and would highly recommend it, lots of space with a great outdoor bed in the shade which is ideal during the hottest part of the day when you're in need of shade. Staying in a villa also means you have... More
