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

Suwaya Villa is located directly at the beach, has a swimming pool and a restaurant and all rooms are quiet big with their own balconies and television. There's also a lot of green on the premises. We especially want to point out that the manager is extremely friendly and tried the best to make us feel comfortable here. So far... More

We had a really lovely time here, the beaches were so quiet and peaceful and the scenery was stunning. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and attentive. The rooms were spacious and clean and a good bargain for the price! They had canoes for guests to use to go out into the mangrove lagoon where you could see plenty... More

We spent 2 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The location is great with the sea in front and mangrove lagoon behind. The swimming pool is good. Food is great at very reasonable price. Thank you Panasa and Damith for making our stay nicer. You're very professional and kind to our kids!

Shan gets you the best service at Suwaya villa. His team is excellent at looking after the customer. Good food, good pool, right by the beach and lagoon and just snap your fingers and he'll get you a tuk tuk. Worth staying here.

We just popped in to the hotel on our last day and wished we's stayed here all week. The manager Damith made us feel so welcome, so much so that we stayed all day and had evening dinner at the restaurant (which was superb). Damith showed us round the pool rooms which looked lovely and such was the feel of... More

This charming little resort is heaven for those who wish to have a private sandy beach all to themselves and to rarely see any other guests. The rooms are cosy and clean and the staff friendly and helpful. They will even serve you breakfast at noon if you happen to sleep in late. The whole place has a serene, laid-back... More
