We spent five days in this magnificient place, amongst nature's green and the golden beach. We arrived in the late evening to Suwaya, after hours of travelling by train and tuc-tuc, tiredness was present and we wouldn't have wanted to start our stay here with an problem with the room,wich was solved by giving us a bigger room.

Wonderful resort with a near perfect setting. Lake on one side which you can canoe on, and a near deserted golden sand beach on the other. We stayed in the villas which were really well kept and clean and I thought quite luxurious. It was very quiet when we were there - only eight or so guests - but it... More

This place could be superb with a little more care of the grounds and rooms. The manager and staff were very friendly but spent the day watching cricket instead of cleaning the rooms(the first time our rooms were not cleaned when we stayed two nights. A lot of renovations needed in the rooms in the main house, we did not... More

We've spent 4 days in the Hotel in february 2015. Rooms and hotel are very simple. But hotel staff are very nice and cheerful always ready to help. It's also plenty things to do: cannoeing on the lagoon, beatutiful and empty sandy beach. You are very close to nature, with monkeys, monitors, iguanas. Very good breakfast try the Sri kankan...

I went to Tangalle with my girlfriend and an other couple. The Villas are very well located, on a white sandy beach and only 10 minutes away from town by Tuk-tuk. The rooms are spacious with AC and fan. The menu is international but also offer Sri Lankan food. One of their specialty (can't remember the name) as to be... More

We stayed 4 nights in this wunderfull Villa, with a nice swimmingpool. The room was fantastic, clean, hot water, airco and a kingsize bed. It's 5 steps from the sea. A lot of birds are singing in the morning. The staff was verry friendly, including the manager, Jeannette and Baukje , Netherland

Deluxe suite is lovely, huge four poster bed, separate lounge, beautiful bathroom, private balcony. I looked at the non - deluxe rooms and they were poles apart. Beaches are untouched yet unswimmable due to rip tides. Food was disappointing with limited choice, had to wait a minimum of an hour before dining. What stood out most was the overall eerie... More

Staff here are lovely the manager could not have been more friendly and helpful. Rooms were fine, they have comfy beds, AC and a hot shower. The pool area has potential to be lovely but the pool looked a bit cloudy and sun beds could do with being replaced. There was a pool bar but it wasn't open. However the... More

I don't know how this place can get excellent reviews. We were supposed to spend 2 nights there and we only spent 1 hour. This place is located at the very end of the beach, we thought we were lost but eventually arrived. First impression was not that bad althrough no one around was speaking English and we had difficulties... More
