I totally agree with the previous review. I too was recommended by friends and it was the perfect place to stay. Prem can't do enough for you, I was on my own and she looked after me very well. The house is huge, with large bedrooms and reception rooms. Most rooms have a balcony, and there is lots of space... More

A friend recommended Prem Lanka to us. We stayed for 5 nights and it was like home from home, as Prem looked after us with her lovely home cooked meals. The house in airy and clean and in a very quiet location. Dickwella beach is 2 minutes to the right, but the best beach (5-10 mins to the left) is... More

We feel so lucky that a friend of ours told us about Prem and her wonderful, clean, and airy home. We were greeted with a big smile and flowers from her garden, and no sooner had we put down our bags than a tray of treats and freshly squeezed juice arrived to refresh us. Prem's home is just a few... More

Had to go there against my wish, but already did not like the pictures! It is not overlooking the sea, but up the road from a bay which is far from being the nicest in Sri Lanka. There is no view over the sea from the house & certainly no breeze coming from it to cool you down. No hot... More

We welcome feedback from guests and take all comments seriously. We are very sorry to read this review from someone who stayed only a single night. However, this review is very different to all other feedback from guests before and since, including guests who have stayed in exactly the same rooms, and who have later sent their friends to stay...

We stayed with Prem over Christmas 2012 and had a great time. This is a place for quiet and relaxation, deserted beaches and good food. We enjoyed watching monkeys, peacocks and all manner of colourful birds from our balcony. Prem is a smiling, welcoming host and we enjoyed her home cooked breakfasts and, on several days, dinners in the evening... More

Forget the outlandishly expensive resort at the far end of Dickwella Beach, this is where the smart traveller stays when he/she comes to town. Large, spotlessly clean rooms with balconies overlooking one of the prettiest gardens on the island. Monkeys and Peacocks compete for your attention in the lush surroundings by day and when it gets dark you're treated to... More

After a long flight and transfers the hotel was such a wonderful surprise. Shut away behind large gates, it was a beautiful and peaceful place.The gardens are glorious and well kept with an outside shower for those coming off the beautiful sandy beach. We were welcomed by Prem [the owner] with a bunch of flowers then shown to our room.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel is run personally by the English-speaking Sri Lankan lady owner. Relax and unwind in a friendly, family-run small hotel with modern amenities, to the sounds of tropical birds and the Ocean. Premlanka Hotel is also an ideal base from which to tour other parts of Sri Lanka and as a base for longer stays. Set peacefully in landscaped gardens amongst coconut palms, about 400 paces from a nice, sandy beach. Five en suite twin-bedded rooms with showers, toilets, ceiling fans, electric points and private balconies. All bedrooms have twin four-poster "canopy" beds with comfortable mattresses, equipped with full mosquito nets. These high-ceilinged rooms are cooled by sea breezes. The hotel is naturally cool, helped by the attractive "indoor waterfall garden" built into the stairwell. Most bedrooms have optional air-conditioning. One bedroom has a kitchenette. We can arrange for reliable drivers to meet your flights at Colombo or the new Hambantota airport. Their routes to and from Premlanka Hotel can include stops at interesting places. We can suggest and organize a range of excursions. We are also happy to help you plan and arrange your own itinerary. Our extensive local knowledge includes fascinating places and events seldom visited by overseas tourists. ... more   less
