We had a lovely stay at Nisala Arana this Christmas and New Year. Beautiful property set in an amazing garden - the staff could not have been more helpful. Delicious fresh food every day. Easy to get a Tuk Tuk from the property to the beach. Clean and well appointed rooms - excellent for a larger group with multiple families.

Beautiful property with ample space to relax and enjoy. It's very family friendly and our kids had a great time. The rooms were well spaced, clean and comfortable. Loved the architecture and the well kept gardens and pool area. We were well looked after by their incredible and friendly staff. The food was delicious and accommodated all our requests. Ben, the owner of the property was very kind and considerate and was readily available to contact right throughout our stay. Thanks Ben and the team. Looking forward to going back again!

We had a great time at Nisala Arana. The excellent services and this remarkable place with unique architecture made our stay beyond expectations. The staff was excellent and very helpful always. The food was delicious. The place itself was absolutely nice specially with the blend of Sri Lankan heritage. We loved the enchanting greenery and beautiful outdoor setup. The hotel is situated in a very calm and quite place. The rooms are spacious and clean. Its noteworthy mentioning the distinctive furniture and architecture this place maintain, I’m sure any guest would appreciate them. This note is not complete without mentioning Mr. Benjamin who runs the place. He is very friendly and supportive. Thank you, Benjamin for giving us an early check in and extending the departure time. We love the place, love the services !!! We would definitely visit Nisala Arana once again.

It was one of the best locations if you want to get relaxed in close distance to Colombo. We had a really good time and the staff were excellent. The location is superb. This place is ideally suited to stay more than one day. Would recommend to anyone

I based myself here for a few days to mainly visit the Brief and Lunaganaga gardens. It is a small place, away from the beach but not so far. The property and grounds are beautiful. In the “Sri Lankan style’ with a historic Doctors house and newer buildings all with authentic furniture. Pool lovely. A highlight for me though was the food with Haiendra “Harry” going out of his way to educate me about Sri Lankan food, planning different and interesting meals and telling me about them and the cooking techniques. All expertly prepared by Amila. He also showed me around the garden pointing out all the species especially the edible one. I learnt a lot. Thanks.

We can’t speak highly enough of Nisala Arana as a place to stay and as a wedding venue. The location is quiet and beautiful with lots of birds and the occasional monkeys passing through. Most importantly the whole team from gardeners to managers are delightful and go out of their way to make the stay excellent. The food is delicious and highly recommended. All in all a 5* stay
