We stayed for 3 nights here (2 nights in a chalet and one night in a villa) and had a wonderfully relaxing time. All of the staff were so friendly and laid-back - it really added to the chilled out environment. A special mention to Sully in the beach bar, who might just be the nicest person we met during...

We arrived by bus and tuktuk after our Yala safari and this place was just the ticket. As the cabanas were full, we checked in to the more upscale Mangrove Chalets, which I can't recommend highly enough. Suli was an amazing and helpful host. In fact, all of the staff were helpful, polite and attentive, but his efforts truly stand... More

We recently spent three nights at this property. Two nights at the chalet side and one night at the beach cabana side. In retrospect, I wish we would have spent the entire time on the beach cabana side. But, both were nice. The property is not located near anything you can walk to in terms of restaurants and stores, so... More

good friend of mine suggested me to step at Mangrove beach cabanas. So we went there for 3 nights. We couldn't imagine how beautiful was this place. All the cabanas are faceing the beach and the ocean. During the night you fall asleep listening the sound of the ocean. Extremely quiet. Cabana has the bedroom on the groundfloor and the... More

At the moment of writing we're still in paradise. The most beautiful place we've ever slept. Cute, clean cabana right on the beach with a fantastic bathroom underneath the cabana. Waking up everyday morning with the sound of the ocean and a view to die for. Staff is one of the best we have experienced and the food is delicious.

Spent two nights here and they were not enough. The beach is stunning, the staff friendly and the food and cocktails were perfect. The rooms are simple and tastefully done, and there are a bevy of activities from kayaking to night walks to find sea turtles. Fresh fish cooked to order, long leisurely breakfasts--and a friend group of guys working... More

We stayed here for two nights towards the end of our trip - we spent more than our budget to stay in a chalet as we felt in need of some serious R&R. The location is simply beautiful, and we received a warm welcome, including a welcome drink and a promise to organise a trip to see turtles laying eggs... More

We stayed here for two nights during a guided tour of Sri Lanka. We had chalet number one nearest the beach. Once at the Mangrove Chalets you only require flip flops as walking from the chalet to the beach or bar/restaurant is white soft sand. Lovely beach but limited swimming. however a fantastic place to chill out and relax. Breakfast... More

We stayed at mangrove cabanas for 2 nights in May.. Despite it being the start of monsoon season in the south we went anyway and had pure blue skies to the whole time! When we arrived we had been upgraded to a luxury beach cabana as they were doing work on the room we had originally booked.. It was amazing!... More

We stayed at Mangrove beach cabanas. We really liked it here. Best location, best beach, very nice atmosphere, staff was very nice. We also enjoyed the mils shakes, appetizers and dinner. Breakfast is not included in the price. I recommend this place.
