Note - this hotel is now called Suwaya Villas, and e stayed for 3 relaxing nights after sightseeing all over Sri Lanka. We stayed in a beautiful bungalow with flowers clambering over the balcony, air con, and a view of the beautiful pool and beach. We had the place to ourselves, the beach was tropical, unspoilt and quiet, but there... More

Pro: Quiet Location in idyllic Beach, Perfect for those who want to relax with a view of Palm trees. Attentive and Good Service by Damith and his Friends. Food much better than in places of similar Price range. Contra: property would benefit from some Investment. Only Bar area is New. More privacy than at neighboring places however.

They have older rooms which appear better near the pool but general comments from others was dirty and many faults. Our room was 4x3 meters including bathroom a wet room, best... More

it was a little bit difficult to find this place, as it has changed name and management recently. it is a little remote place but it actually adds to its appeal as the hotel is situated on one of the most pristine beaches we have seen on Sri Lanka. it is surrounded by lagoon with plentiful bird life. management is...

I wouldn't want to go back here. Almost no staff and no smiles from the ones that were left (but three managers, no one to make the room up, non functioning air con,no decent food, no beer, nowhere to walk except the beach, probably not a good place to swim with a strong undertow, lots of ants in the room,...

You like it when: - the van driver sent by your hotel rather stays in the airport parking 45 minutes instead of coming to greet you at the exit with a sign like everyone else, until finally he shows up when you least expected him. - the van driver was not given directions so you spend a half-hour around Tangalle...

This place has just changed its name to Sunawaya Villa because of the bad publicity about the murder here. They were very short-staffed and nobody cleaned the room or made the bed. Most of the items on the menu weren't available. There was an endless stream of large ants and the ones we squashed were still littering the floor when... More

We stayed for 4 nights in this hotel and it was a good place to stay. Some things to know - its location is about 20 mins (10 mins of it on dirt-road) via Tuk Tuk (200-300 Rupies) from downtown Tangalle. It's too far to walk. So you're a little outside of town and there is not really a chance... More
