We spent four nights at Suduweli. The guesthouse and the rooms are simple and tidy and we enjoyed the beautiful garden with pond and peacock as well as the big veranda, which is comfortable, airy and in the shade. The home cooked breakfast and dinner were delicious. The owners Shenaan and Karin treated us warm-hearted and helped us a lot... More

We had a beautiful stand alone bungalow and really enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was clean and well appointed. The owners were friendly but not overbearing and were able to provide good advice on the area. We used it as a base to visit Yala NP (which I do not recommend.. See separate review) and to birdwatch around the nearby... More

We arrived here on the day it was pouring heavily so much it had flooded the owners property also. Karin and Shantha are lovely hosts. The rooms are basic but neat and clean. The owners were very flexible and even when we cut our stay short due to heavy rains they did not mind it all. We had booked safaris... More

Why? * the price is quite steep (6000 rps for a bungalow) * no hot water * no shade at the bungalow * no Wifi. When we left, the owner told us that he has wifi and you can use it for half an hour per... More

Hello Mr. Alex S, thanks for your review and for the 4 star valuation of our guesthouse. You did’nt book in advance and came by car. My partner showed you the bungalow. You started a price negotiation and told, you checked more guesthouses in our area, which are cheaper, but you didn’t want to stay there….?? My partner gave you... More

We stayed here for two nights, and it was all very good. The room was basic but clean, and the common area outside was really nice. There are peacocks in the beautiful garden and a few very shy crocodiles in the pond. The owner was very friendly, and so were his two dogs. We organised a safari through the guesthouse,... More

My friends and I stayed here for a night.. I booked via email, which was quite convenient. The owner Shantha is very friendly, hospitable and the whole place has a homely and inviting vibe. Shantha's two dogs playing around only added to it in good measure. The property has a beautiful, peaceful garden(where a peacock was dancing for hours in... More

When I heard about this place through a promotional offer, initially , I was bit reluctant thinking that this is just another "me too" ECO tourism place. But when I visited this place I was overwhelm by the atmosphere and the comfort it offers. It is simply a paradise, an ideal place to relax in calm an quite environment.

They were extremely helpful from the start of the booking process through to our stay. We arrived in the afternoon and had some time to kill and Karin suggested we go to the a nearby beach... More

I found out about this place in a guide book and contacted Karin and Shantha to reserve the place for 1 room since we were visiting Yala national park. They responded very fast and answered all the questions. We arrived 15.02 afternoon and decided to go to the beach. Shantha kindly recommended the exact place where we could swim, which... More

We stayed here in November 2013 and had a very relaxing stay in one of their little bungalows which was lovely, quiet and clean. Karin and Shantha were great and looked after us really well and gave us lots of helpful advice. Breakfast and dinner is lovely and freshly prepared how you want it and I had the best pot... More
