We were lucky enough to choose Moonstone for our stay in Tangalle. It was a beautiful spot. The rooms had spacious beds and lovely baths that were kept immaculately clean. The pool was very well maintained, as were the rest of the grounds. The restaurant was amazing, offering both delicious western and local cuisine. Raelene and Anil were wonderful hosts,... More

Raylene, the owner at Moonstone and her staff are very helpful and committed to ensuring your visit is magical. The food was delicious, rooms beautiful and the pool welcoming and always clean and inviting. Don't look anywhere else to stay in Tangalle. You have just found it!!

Photos don't do it justice. There's a sense of relaxation and charm that you enjoy from the minute you walk up the steps. As you continue past the restaurant area, the buildings look clean and bright and the pool so inviting. Moonstone exceeded our expectations. Not only is the facility great but the staff are wonderful, topped off by the... More

Small charming property wth 9 roms. Clean, hospitable with great staff and food. Canadian owner is on site and always helpful and accommodating. Good location, a short tuk tuk ride to Tangalle. Worth a stay. The entire property and gardens are well looked after and the pool area is a terrific way to chill and relax. Across the road from... More

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.

Thank you TJ for your kind and informative review.

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.
