This place is decent. The location by the beach is great which enables a lot of surfing and swimming which is fab. The room was fine and breakfast was OK. So in general it is a decent place. The main upside as said is the beach and also that you can easily go travelling in the region from here.

Stayed here for 4 night and had a pleasant stay, don't come here if your in a rush (this place is slow paced) or looking for 5 star luxury but my room was spacious and neat with a good bathroom and hot water (though it's cold showers most of the time to cool down) it's situated directly on the beach...

Right at the picture-perfect beach with a nice elevated terrace looking out at the ocean, where you can have breakfast or dinner, Samaru Beach House definitely is a great place to chill out. A vast choice of surfing equipment for rent and even a few fitness and balance training tools make it a great place for surfers - the staff... More

Samaru has a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere in a nice location, which seems less crowded than Mirissa. It's quite a unique spot worth staying at. The staff are flexible with an open, welcoming attitude towards visitors. It's a great place to learn surfing. As a female, you might wish to establish a no-touch policy to help everyone remain focused during the... More

Hello, we had a very good time for about 2 weeks in February at the Samaru Beach House. The Staff was very friendly and the all over atmosphere relaxed and welcoming. We had a room with ocean view and paid 5000 Rupies per night including breakfast. Good stay for surf beginners. You can also rent boards or a teacher there.... More

We pitched up at Samaru Beach House on our hunt for accommodation. Fortunately, they didn't have any availability as I'm sure it would have been an experience worth forgetting. We ordered some food off the menu anyway as it was lunchtime. We asked the waiter what was good to eat and he basically said nothing. He told us that the... More

I came for the first time in 2009 by recommandation and at that time it was definitely much cheaper to stay at Samaru's. Can't blame the tourism to be back but the prices tripled and the rooms stayed in the same state since i last visited. No Hot water in the shower and no pressure which anyway forces you to... More

I don't usually write reviews, but for this I will make an exception. Do not stay here if you are a female alone or with a group of females. Me and two other friends stayed here for just over a week and we were treated very poorly. Firstly- during the first and only surf lesson we had, the owner of... More
