Large attractive room that is thoughtfully appointed. Rooms have chairs and tables that are great when you are ready to enjoy a bit of cool, air conditioning. The patio includes more chairs and a table, a daybed for snoozing and a rack to dry your bathing suit after a refreshing dip in the garden centered swimming pool. Wifi access is... More

I arrived dusty and tired from a 5 hour train ride from Kandy, entered the gate from the hectic street, and walked between flowering shrubs, a bright and shaded outdoor dining area, past a crystal clear turquoise pool, slipped my shoes off and dropped my backpack at the entrance of a room that is first rate by any North American...

We stayed here for two nights recently and really didn't want to leave. The villas are in a great location almost beach side (you just have to walk across the road) and only about a ten or fifteen minute walk from Tangalla town centre. The welcome we received was warm, and we were given two rooms at the back of... More

This resort has no driveway. You just take a few steps into the resort through a passage in a wall and and you have stepped inside Neve Shalom – - an oases of peace.That single wall is a dividing line between utter chaos on the highway and total order inside the resort. The owner of this resort was originally a... More

Beautiful shaded spot, with stunning sweet pool surrounded by trees. Rooms were huge and so well equipped, the owners had thought of every detail; from wooden drying rack on the balcony to extra plug points. Lovely staff, and lots of great touches such as meals on our large balcony. Great AC, big bathrooms. Just metres from the beach and the... More

Efficiently run hotel with a small pool to relax by. Raylene the Canadian owner was very helpful with plenty of advice on which beaches to visit and trips to go on. The restaurant serves both international and local cuisine, with a good pizza for a change. The local beach is safe for swimming and has a good beach cafe/restaurant -... More

Thank you for your comments - we really appreciate hearing that you enjoyed your stay here. And the good news is that an alternate business route is being developed which will significantly decrease the road use here. But still good to hear that it really was not disturbing, for you. Let us know when you are coming again. All the... More

Upon arrival we were given the room with beach view upstairs but we decided to stay in the back of the garden at room 9, which was quite new, with a lovely terrace and a view to the garden and pool. We really liked it. The owners are very friendly. It's located near the ocean but we found the most... More

Thank you Jeanine, for your comments about your stay at Moonstone Villas. We enjoyed having you both, and also happy that you appreciated Navajeevana so much as we also have a close connection. I think assisting our guests to experience the "real" Sri Lanka, such as the rehabilitation programs at Navajeevana, is important for some folks to feel their vacation... More

After a week of travelling and exploring the hill country, a bit of luxury was a welcome experience. Lovely big room, with a massive bed and balcony. Only a small complex, but vey well maintained grounds with a nice pool and sunbeds. Good choices and quality of breakfast in the restaurant area. Plenty of staff all dressed in a traditional...

Moonstone Villas are situated about 1 km from Tangalle centre and bus station. It is close to the ocean and there is quite nice beach within two minutes walk. I stayed in room number 3, which is in the second building from the road and on ground floor. No disturbing noise from the street. The room is lovely with both... More

We stayed here for three nights. Lovely setting away from the town. A bit noisy if you have a room at the front. However the front room does give an amazing view of the ocean from the superb balcony! The staff are lovely and although not expected its great to have staff speaking such good english and the owner herself... More

Thank you for your comments about your stay at Moonstone Villas. It is good to know that our website does portray our property correctly as you have commented. Good news is that an alternate business route is now being developed which will leave our road as a scenic drive and reduce the traffic noise a lot, however as you noted,... More
