what a beautiful and tasteful place. The charming couple, Monique and Chanaka put loads of effort in to make this place what it is. A TRUE GEM! We had a fabulous time there. Everything was perfect. Thank you!

A place magical worthy of the biggest dream. What is better than one night in Nil Manel ? Nothing. A warm reception and a team more than perfect. Thank you very much to Monique and Chanaka for this stay which we will never forget. I can't wait to return for ambience and peace of this splendid home.

We were lucky enough to stay at La Maison Nil Manel over the New Year's holiday 2015. What can I say? It was fantastic. We arrived just in time to enjoy the wonderful family-like feast they had created for their guests. The owners Chanaka and Monique went out of their way to make us feel welcome and their staff are...

We (myself and my 2 daughters) spent a week at Nil Manel over new Year 2015. It is a small haven where you are made to feel as if you were staying as guests in a beautifully decorated private home ( which it is) with a very large pool. Breakfast were heaven in the beautiful gardens, and evening meals prepared... More

We stayed at the Nil Manel for 4 days in mid December 2014. The quick and easy review - book it, you won't regret it. The decoration, the location, the comfort, the food, the staff, the management/owners... everything is just right. The more detailed feedback... Nil Manel is a perfect mix, that was perfect for us. It's a huge boutique... More

If you want to know what a bubble is, try it. You will have the feeling ton be at the same time a guest, a friend, a member of the family and a visitor of a museum. Chanaka will allow you to appreciate the local food according to your personal taste of spicy things. You will also have the opportunity... More

We arrived at La Maison Nil Manel, a place extremely well-run by a charming couple, a place really peaceful with serene atmosphere for a holiday with surrounding plants, flowers, and multitude birds . La Maison Nil Manel is certainly one of the most beautiful place in south, the warmth welcoming by Monique and Chanaka in their luxury colonial house. The... More

Nil Manel is the right place to spend relaxing holiday thanks to Monique and Chanaka's warmest hospitality. Charming and elegant guesthouse, beautiful tropical garden with swimmingpool, stylish rooms design and finest srilankan cuisine between tradition and fusion prepared by Chanaka. Nil Manel is ideally located 200m from the beach. There is not much to do in Ahungalla but Monique and... More

We stayed at Nil Manel for 7 days and wished we had more time to enjoy it. The villa is stunning, super well taken care of, spotless clean and decorated with lots of love for details. Every day we discovered new details, in the beautiful garden, the restaurant with an extraordinary good kitchen or in the pool area. We arrived... More
