I loved this one so much the staff were professional, accommodating and warm. The food was excellent - I use to ate outside overlooking the ocean on both nights.My rooms was clean and spacious with very good air-conditioning No doubt the rooms are great with sea views, a great pool etc.Unfortunately I had on access due to covid but more than that staff attitude I would highly recommend Superb management ever seen. thank you so much once again to ekho surf team and I would like to especially thank G.S.M Kanchana for his kind hospitality services.

I visited in the last period of usual travel time, at March. In March its already hot and humid. Average temperature is 35C. You need to relax at your hotel at day time and of course it need to be comfortable. Ekho surf is that kind of property which is having a great seaside location. It has more than a kilometer stretch of green lash lawn.

Myself & family was allotted to stay during the quarantine period from 31st March to 6th April 2021. Guest handling was very good, very friendly front office staff more than willing to assist you..Service was very good so as the Food was very good, very punctual , set menu to suit your palate, request for any changes is allowed . Room is big enough to accommodate an extra bed with other amenities , FFE etc.. Replenishments are promptly attended upon request.. Critic for improvements: Formerly this property was well known locally & internationally as LIHINIYA SURF, Bentota.. Property needs overall refurbishments in keeping with the trends & competition, though it's not possible for now due to the prevailing situations.. Staff is a major asset as they are very courteous, professional & disciplined.. My guest experience was very good & I personally recommend the resort without any biased opinions.. Wishing all the staff , Management all the best in making our stay comfortable & memorable
