“Very nice hotel !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, based on TripAdvisor recommendations.
We liked it :
- our room was pleasant, quiet, with nice furniture and very clean.
- the small garden was very pleasant as well
- breakfast was good
- location : close to several small and quite beaches in Tangalle

Only concern was the dinner. We just got one diner, but it was the worst we got in Sri Lanka. We took a fish with boiled vegetables, it was completely tasteless. Maybe we made the wrong choice, but I don't think so according to what we saw on others tables.

Staff was friendly, only became cold when we told them that dinner was not very good. We can understand the reaction, usually we don't comment what we don't like, but it is a pity to have such a good hotel like this with a so bad dinner.

We would come back anyway.

I stayed there for 5 days with a friend, and the food was unbelievably good. The staff are friendly, it is quiet and is like a little haven. The only thing I would say is take insect repellent for the surrounding area, and look out for the little lizards in the bathroom. Also the air con isn't very effective.

We had a fantastic stay in NugaSewana Eden where we stayed for 4 nights. We enjoyed the beautiful location, kind and helpful staff and wonderful food. The rooms were very clean, with airconditioning and mosquito nets. The room was cleaned for us and linen changed after 2 nights. The staff helped us to make arrangements for transport, and were very friendly. There's a great beach very near by where we swam everyday. This place was really the highlight of our trip, with excellent value for money and finally what we heard about the great hospitality in Sri lankan hotels rang true. Definitely a place to return to.

We've spend two weeks in NugaSewana Eden, the room was clean, staff extremely helpful, the owner organized all excursions at reasonable prices, food excellent, the view on the ocean is large and high, the bay across the road is always empty, the village/shops/banks are 3 min by tuk-tuk

We stayed in an 3-room appartment in this hotel for more than 3 weeks. Everything is good about it including price (see on their web-site). No noise except parrots and sea and rain, big balcony, it`s a perfect place to relax. Fridge with beer, TV room with DVD, music and big table in the kitchen, 2 spacious rooms and 1 small, 1 with AC (for small extra-price). They clean the rooms every 3-4 days, can bring tea and food from the restaurant upstairs (tips are welcome). Staff and hosts are very friendly. The restaurant is more expensive than the ones on the beach or on the road nearby, but sometimes it`s nice to have restaurant meal in your appartment or in the garden full of flowers. Fresh fish is very good. They can also organize trips to national parks, Galle and airport transfer at a reasonable rate in truly AC vans.
The beach is only 5 min from the hotel, but the closest place is not good for swimmimg, you must go a little further (10 min) one or another side to find a place. But when you find one, feels like paradise!

Рекомендую это место русским туристам, хотя в нем и так почему-то очень много русских останавливается. Мы целую неделю жили в русскоязычной среде. Приезжайте! Почувствуйте себя в настоящем раю, как в рекламе Баунти. Только не забудьте средство от москитов.

I just returned from my second stay at Eden ... it is a real gem. Everything about the guesthouse is solid ... from the location to the service to the food to the value. The staff is also wonderful and will do whatever it takes to make your stay as comfortable and refreshing as possible. I am already planning my next trip to Sri Lanka and I am sure it will include a week or two at Eden ...

We stayed here longer than originally planned, having shortened our stay in a more up market hotel since is did not really provide us with any experience of Sri Lanka and was too sterile for us.
This guest house is lovely. We will admit to not being totally convinced when we arrived, but another guest was right in saying you will soon settle into its charm. We did after the first night!
Rooms are basic but comfortable and clean. Linen changed daily and air con in some rooms. The beaches close by are lovely.
The owner and his assistant Amid could not be more helpful. We really liked this place and felt very comfortable here and would definitely recomment it.
Breakfast was good - try curd and trickle - I got hooked! Dinner was also good, but there are also placed to visit on the beach for lunch or dinner.
