We came here during two complete days and we really enjoy our stay here. Food was very good and the service as well. The beach is amazing and if waves are too strong, you can still go to the swimming pool.

We booked Sanjis seaside cabanas for 20 nights because we looked for something authentical, not too touristic and well embedded in nature. The surrounding is amazing for people who love nature, many birds and other wildlife and you are just in the middle. In addition, the staff is very friendly and always helpful, and last but not least, any Sri... More

Spent three nights at Sanjis Seaside Cabana in January It is a perfect place to unwind and relax . Also to enjoy calm and tranquility . There are only eight cabanas on the property so there is privacy and quietness . One can enjoy miles of virgin beach. The cabanas are well furnished with basic amenities and an open air... More

When we had an unexpected last-minute cancellation at a hotel nearby, Sanjis offered us a cabin at a very competitive price. He runs a friendly, comfortable and very relaxing place with a nice pool, good breakfast and candle light dinners on the beach. The cabins are perfectly designed for the tropics with open air bathrooms.

We really enjoyed our stay at Sanjis Seaside Cabanas! The place is located in the middle of nowhere, so perfect if you are looking for a little piece and quiet. You drive into the grounds and find four little bungalows (2 rooms each). Behind the bungalows, the open air restaurant building and a brand-new pool. Behind the pool, palm trees... More

Dear Guest, thank you for your comment and your suggestions. We are happy that you liked your stay at Sanjis. We have ordered a few chairs with backs now, so that our guest can sit more comfortable if they like. For beach dinner we use our chairs with no backs, as these can be brought to the beachside.

Sanjis has the most friendly atmosphere and helpful staff. After entering the gates, from the small dirt road you find the lovely architecture of the two guesthouses and the kitchen/ dining area set just back from a perfect paradise beach. The rooms are large, well kept, and the outdoor showers are a dream! On the long and totally unspoilt beach... More

The biggest advantage of Sanjis is the location: its remote (14km away from Tangalle) so in the off-season you will probably have the whole beach on your own. There are only 4 rooms in Sanjis: excellently designed, with an exquisite outdoor bathroom. Perfect for pairs. No air contition, but it's ok with the open bungalow design and a fan. Good... More

This could be a good choice if you’re looking to really get away from it all. The hotel has 4 simple but comfortable cabanas set in a lovely garden, right on a magnificent, palm-tree-lined, almost deserted beach a few kilometres away from Tangalle.
