Excellent location for the beach and great value rooms for travellers. Very helpful man at the desk with local information and let us use the shower facilities after we checked out. The nearest town (Trinco) is 16km away so be prepared.

There are two great things going for this establishment, Mohamed the manager is a gem. Lovely guy, happy to give help and advice on what to do, and equally captivating telling about the 2004 Tsunami, and sad stories it created.

The owner, Mohamed Sadiq, was happy to make arrangements and negotiate with us although we made a last minute booking. The room was slightly on the hot side and outside the there were many bugs, but other than that we were happy to stay at such a great location right near Nilaveli beach. From there you can see and go... More

He'll kindly give you advice on how to get around and more. Beach is just a 2 min walk. Boats to pigeon island lay ready on the beach. The room I had... More
