We stayed at the Lonely Beach Resort for two nights, we wish we had stayed longer! Rooms are spacious and overlook the picturesque beach through the palm trees. Our room didn't have AC but there was a fan. Breakfast is served in the cafe and we opted for eggs and fruit platter, simple but tasty. If you want to eat... More

When me and my wife arrived to hotel, the first impression wasn't good, but after few minutes we understood that the place was great. The cook-waiter was very friendly and the food was very good, we stayed there for 5 nights and the food was different every night. There you can see al lot of birds, every mornig about at... More

We can't stay away from this place. The rooms are spacious with good bathrooms and our sea facing room has a very large balcony. The staff are very attentive and Vijitha the owner is on site every day to ensure everything runs smoothly. The beach here is one of the cleanest we have seen in Sri Lanka and never crowded.

I really liked my stay even though it was raining a lot. The staff is friendly but the younger guy could be more motivated. You have to ask for everything.he wont ask if you want to drink something even though you are sitting in the bar, which s a bit weird. but after asking you'll get everything in the end... More

Just stayed at Lonely Beach Resort at the beginning of December 2014 and really enjoyed my stay. The room was basic (could use a softer pillow and softer sheets) but we had a lovely view of the lagoon (second floor facing the entrance). The shower pressure wasn't good but the water was nice and hot. Our room was very clean... More

Exactly what you'd expect from aa place called lonely beach. Quiet beach resort. Exceptionally attentative staff with a great manner. Breakfast is slightly overpriced and the beach front is slightly hidden by sand dune but it's only a 20 metre walk. Restaraunt could be better but again there's other places on the beach. Rooms are great, with hot water are... More

While traveling Sri Lanka we open for us LONELY BEACH Resort. It is one of the lovely place we saw. We travel with two children 14 and 5 years old so we were afraid of different poisons very much. We always have breakfast and sometimes dinner in Lonely Bech. It was near the place we swim. Everything was very good:... More

Firstly the location is great right on beach & we had the upstairs room with a nice view (now somewhat restricted as the trees have grown) Our friends had the downstairs room but had to keep their windows & door closed for privacy at night thus missing the cool breezes. The bed was a good size king with a decent... More

Pros: The beach is stunning. Lovely rooms, right on the beach but still private. Short walk to Mangrove Spa (excellent and v cheap, highly recommend). Breakfast excellent with generous portions, dinner a little pricier but tasty and reasonable value. Friendly and helpful staff. Room furnishings were functional and adequate. Small but nice ocean view. Best to go by tuk tuk... More

We stayed 2 nights in Lonely beach resort. The place looks really peaceful. We had the Deluxe room with terrace and seaside view. It was a nice place to stay with a really nice manager ! But the rooms ... We didn't feel comfortable in it. The light made us depressed, so many Mosquitos and no decoration. It really looks... More
