We have visited Malu Banna during our holiday. Our family of 3 has stayed at Vivanta by Taj hotel, so Malu Banna was very close to it (you can actually walk from or simply take a Tuktuk, which will bring you there in 5 minutes). Since my father is an experienced fisherman and always tries fishing experiences abroad, we have... More

Post our Galle Fort visit we went to Malubanna Water Sports. They have Jet Ski, Water Ski, Speed Boat Ride, Water Boards etc.. for about $35-$50, one can enjoy all sorts of rides for 15 minutes.. The main instructor spends some time to teach the nuance of the sport. Be sure to carry your own swim wear. They also provide... More

The resort has most of the water sport activities and the location is ideal; large and shallow open lagoon makes it an ideally safe place for people to take part in water sports.

We where shown this place by our driver, The staff where friendly and attentive without being pushy. My 2 teenagers went jet skiing with an instructor ( due to age) who let them drive as soon as they where confident they knew what they where doing. My partner and 2 smallest children leant how to waterski. They where good at... More

It was one of a kind experience as we enjoyed jet skiing, banana boat rides and many other water sports. The food was so awesome, my friend ordered a second plate as well. Keep up the good work.

To my experience Malu Banna is one of the best operators expertise in water based activities. The proprietor Chathura is a PADI certificate holder in conducting many water based activities. The prices are relatively higher, but you are FULLY INSURED with them and the services are standardized. The boats and jet skis are new and other equipment being used are... More

Dont pay too much for this trip. If your a keen fisherman looking for big game fish like I was I wouldnt recommend it. They ahve a few trolling rods and lures which they troll for about 45 mins on the way out- don;t go any deeper than about 8km from the shore and then bottom fish using live prawns... More
