Stayed at Lara's Place for 5 nights and we were not dissapointed! The room had a wonderful terrace where breakfast was served every morning. Sittning on the terrace you can see monkeys, a lot of different colorful birds and not to mention a nice sea view. The room was spacious, and the bathroom stylish and clean with hot water. A...

Wonderful room with beautiful views over the beach. Love the use of polished concrete throughout. The room was huge, the bathroom the best we had on our trip and having a mini bar was fantastic! We enjoyed the food but we had dinner there one night and it was far far too salty for us. It is a bit of... More

I cannot say enough good things about Lara's place - having come from a terrible hotel in Hikkaduwa, arriving at Lara's Place with its tasteful decor, comfy beds, minibar etc was like heaven. I was so impressed that they had a safe, minibar and even tea-making facilities. Like everyone else has said, the homecooked food was superb - my partner... More

My stay at Lara's Place was definitely one of my favourite whilst in Sri Lanka. Lara and his family are great hosts, they really made us feel at home and helped us with planning our trip around the island. The accommodation is clean, modern and reasonably priced with great views over the beach, it is a short walk (around 15mins)... More

Very clean rooms Very helpful owner, has a lot to share and can give explanations on nearly everything Close to the beach, but main beach, towncenter is a bit far (20 minutes walk) I would definitely recommend the place.

The place is perfect. Very quiet and located 5 minutes up the mountain from the beach. The rooms are big and new with all the services. The owner is very friendly. You can see the sea from the room terrace. Very recommended place. The area is better than the ones from the beach side.

We stayed here for 10 nights in February, the apartments are a very nice size and there is a beautiful view of the Sea from the balcony. Lara goes out of his way to make your stay a welcome one any help you need for a transfer or a driver for a trip he will organize for you. We had... More
