Leave you office job in the centre of London, head to the airport, board a 12 hour flight bound for Sri Lanka, drive 3 hours to the south coast of the island and you'll find yourself in PARADISE!!! You know those picture perfect postcards you see with the secluded cove beaches fringed with palm trees? Well that's exactly what you'll... More

The cabanas have no phones, no TVs, no artificial A/C - just a lovely wooden cabanas structure VERY near the Indian Ocean. At night, the sea breeze keeps you cool and you fall asleep to the sound of the waves breaking on the beach. At dawn, there is a bird dawn chorus - just throw away your alarm clock. Recently...

Coconut garden and old trees add... More

Some family debate about this one, 3 or 4 stars!! It is basic, without a/c, TV or in our case hot water, but it is a wooden cabana only 20m or so from the beach, open to the elements (mozzie nets) wig the roar of the dumping waves throughout the night. The 'saving' grace was the partner neighbour Tangalle 5... More

Palm Paradise Cabanas in Tangalle is a delightful little place, perfectly located on the Tangalle beach. It is great value for money. My partner and I spent four days there and we would gladly go back. The staff was helpful and pleasant, the room had a great view and it was a very relaxing holiday. I highly recommend this place...

The Vila was lovely, really clean and spacious. we were looked after extremely well by the House Boy Ramesh, he was really friendly and helpful and could not have done more for us. Also Thushara the duty manager was great. Between them they bought a beautiful cake for my son's birthday, it really made his day special, thank you.

Were shown a 60$ cabana which was dark and gloomy, and really basic. Furniture looked old and worn. At that price we didn't even stay - found a much better room just opposite, at Goyambokka Guesthouse. The restaurant did look quite inviting though. But at this price... No thanks.
