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

The "guest house" has a nice place in front of the bay. 6 rooms with fans and a/c and 8 more soon. The beds are ok and relatively quiet. The cooking is great and the staff is very friendly. They also have boards to rent and they are in good state (NSP). We stayed 4 days and 4 good days.

They are quite rowdy bunch of people running this place. Who can turn violent very easily. Saw them pick fights w/ multiple guests without good reason. Rooms and rates are reasonable. But would recommend staying at another place.

I stayed at the Samaru Beach House together with a few friends in July 2013. It was the last station of our round trip, just a few days at the beach to relax before flying home. And it was truly a nice experience to stay here. The manager of the house was most welcoming and helpful in every matter. He... More
