Very nice house in a quiet surrounding located 15min walk of the gorgeous nilaveli beach. The manager is a really nice person and he is doing a great job! A huge plus is the free access to the pool area of the nilaveli beach hotel located on the beach side.

After having stayed at the (also excellent) Villa Araliya in Negombo, we chose to prolong our stay in Trincomalee/Upaveli/Nilaveli area in this guest house which is run by the same family. There are four rooms in total and we had three of them, being the only guests during this low-season period. Location is on the "wrong" side (not sea-side) of... More

After staying at surya lagoon's sister hotel in Negombo we decided to give this one a go and it did not disappoint. The rooms are large, beautifully clean and light, with clean and beautiful bathrooms with the coolest taps you've ever seen. The location seems very isolated when you first arrive, there is not sign of life except some sleeping... More

This place was superbly peaceful. a good getaway from the busy Colombo. Even though the hotel is in the land side, the beach is near by. The owner of the hotel is very helpful as well as the staff. The hotel environment is very calm and quite and do not offer meat at the restaurant. The lagoon is very beautiful... More

This place was absolutely beautiful, but like most other places in Nilaveli (and Sri Lanka) they were much over priced! The Bungalow is on a big lot off the main road. The whole place is very aesthetically pleasing and the guys working there are helpful, kind, and sweet. The included breakfast was good and was consumed around a common table,... More

The rooms in this small guest house are beautiful, and by far the most well-appointed that we stayed in during our family trip. The breakfasts here were very good - and I think we had the best curry and rice in Sri Lanka for supper here. Nilaveli beach is spectacular, and so uncrowded and unspoiled. As people have noted, the... More

We spent 6 heavenly relaxing days in surya lagoon this summer. The rooms are very nicely decorated and clean. The guesthouse is located in a quiet area surrounded by a huge palm tree garden with colorful birds, three cute dogs and a beautiful lagoon. Very friendly and helpful service, one of the best we had during our stay in sri... More

The 4 rooms of Surya Lagoon guesthouse are absolutely beautiful! Spacious bathrooms, great beds, tastefully decorated. The owners of this house have 2 other hotels in Kandy (Serendib) and Negombo (Villa Araliya) that looked equally beautiful. The caretaker of the guesthouse is a very friendly man who unfortunately doesnt speak a lot of english, but the owner does and was... More

Beautiful guesthouse; very clean, with helpfull staff. The house is decorated very beautiful, the most beautiful I've seen in Sri Lanka. At first the location seems very remote, but it's actually very close to the beach. The food is ok, but not special.

We stayed here on a family vacation in 2010, when the place had just opened its doors. The accomadation was very nice; beautifully decorated, great facilities, friendly staff and even better home-cooked local meals! The sea is very nearby and the lagoon area where the guesthouse is situated is everything you need for some peace and quiet.
