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

Had two nights in Tangalle before heading to Mirissa. Should have stayed in Tangalle at Mangrove Beach Cabanas. The surroundings are fantastic, the beach nice, safe and clean. the nearby Rekawa turtle sanctuary makes the beach unspoiled which is great compared to Mirissa and Unawatuna where litter and shacks sort of spoil or at least devaluate the wonder. The cabanas... More

We were there with my wife in November and this was really the best place we visit in Sri Lanka. If we have known all the other places (some of them great as well, like Palm Villa in Mirissa) we would have stayed there for couple days longer. We took small cabana with a sea view. It was modest but... More

This really is the epitome of paradise! Everywhere you look you see picture perfect views and almost every photo that we took could be the back of a postcard! The chalets are good value, basic but spacious. Good shower and nice bathroom (albeit a little dark). The restaurant is good although the menu is a bit limited, but the food... More

Service, food and accommodation From the moment myself and my travelling companions arrived for our five day, half board stay, the service was exemplary, nothing was too much trouble from all of the staff. We arrived to a tranquil setting in Paradise, the cliche of lounging in a hammock watching the Indian Ocean waves, with a fresh coconut juice in... More

Fantastic location right on the beach. The cabanas were simple but characterful and close to the main eating and sitting area. The bathroom is accessed via a heavy wooden hatch downstairs, which presents its own dangers, but where else is your shower head a conch shell and the looroll holder another shell?! Loungers are provided for every room, along with... More

Stayed in a chalet , basic and clean. Not value for money. What you pay for is the beautiful beach and the fact that you are right in front of the rock pools. Try to get your hammock or lounger early as there aren't enough for everyone (people from other bungalows seem to also share these). There are other beach... More

We trudged up and down the beach to find some accommodation as most places were fully booked and luckily found this place which is absolute paradise. THE best place we stayed in our whole time in Sri Lanka. The rooms are actual chalets in the sense that they're not just a room. It's very spacious, modern, stylish, separate toilet and... More

Quirky inside with sea shells for toilet roll holder, Celing fan and didnt have any problem with mosquitoes as all windows had screening on them. Restaurant pleasent with wooden tables facing the sea and food good quality. Wifi signal strong around restaurant area. Hammocks... More
