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

Fantasic hotel located just on the beach among coconut palms. The staff was great. The hotel is located a few kilometers from the Tangalee city center, so you can feel the atmosphere of a real "Lonely Beach". We stayed in a very nice and clean room with a wonderful terrace with a view on the ocean. Food offered in the... More

We stayed in the room on the first floor and had our own large balcony with views to the ocean. Clean, good size room with a fan and mosquito net. The bed was also large and quite comfy which makes a change! We had some meals at the hotel and they were all delicious and the setting was lovely right... More

This was our third time here and we never tire of this peaceful location. the staff are great, the food good and simple. The beach was not quite so lonely this year but even when it was crowded it only had 12 people to about 3 kms. We also had at least three turtles come ashore to nest within 400... More

The place is in a lovely spot, right on the beach and I'm sure we would have had a different experience if we had booked one of the rooms (especially the ones facing the beach) but... ... we stayed in the only cabana they have, for 1 night (out of 6 booked) and we left straight away. It's tiny (3m... More

Thanks for you review and I'm so sorry that we couldn't meet the expectations.Unfortunately we were fully booked on those dates so that we were unable to provide you with other room type. This room "Budget Cabana" is the cheapest room in our hotel I do agree with you its bit small and not comfortable as other room types.This used... More

We spent 12 truly beautiful days here. The location is superb, the rooms with balcony are about the most private rooms in the area and the food is some of the best you can get, but what makes this place also very special to us, is the feeling that everybody who works here, really cares for the place and for...

If you go to Sri Lanka and like beaches, you have to come to Tangalla and to this space specifically, it is so special and so beautiful. The hotel was basic but very nice and indeed you feel alone, which is great for holidays. The cook and the owner were particularly nice. We loved everything at our stay there, and... More
