Situé sur les hauteurs de Galle,cadre idyllique,au calme,des singes à proximité et une grande piscine a dispo. Les chambres très propres avec eau chaude, le tout à un prix défiant toute concurrence. Possibilité de goûter à la cuisine de mamie (la gentille et très accueillante propriétaire ) Un grand moment dans notre périple Sri Lankais

After 2 nights in Colombo the four of us arranged for our contact Shalika to pick us up from Kalutara railway station as that is as far as the train currently goes. He was there on time and basically made himself available from that time onward for the whole of our stay. We had two lovely meals at the guest house, one of which was a gift from the family and also used the laundry facility which was fine and cheap. As the cricket finished a day early Shalika took us to a Buddhist temple close to a secluded beach. Ideal for a swim and a light lunch. On the way back we stopped at a turtle hatchery and the following day went whale watching where a discount was negotiated on our behalf. All drop-off and pick-ups including our airport drop for the flight home were at reasonable rates. The lovely beach resort of Unawatana is a ten minute drive away. I stayed in an air-conditioned room which was fine. There were a couple of small problems that were resolved quickly after being reported. The shower is basic and not very powerful but I can only comment on the one in my room. There was a supply of water, cold beer and snacks available until late evening. These were also very reasonably priced. Bear in mind that you are a bit rural and so you will encounter all sorts of wildlife. Shalika and the family really do go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable and nothing seems too much bother. If you like peace and quiet while being in easy reach of the beach bars and restaurants then Ranthil is ideal.

I found Ranthil while looking for a peaceful hill top location conveniently placed for both Galle and Unawatuna. I loved watching the variety of birds visitng the beautiful gardens and the visits of troupes of monkeys raiding the fruit trees. An added bonus was the charm of the host family for whom nothing was too much trouble. I am addicted to Sri Lankan food and Lalani is the best cook in Sri Lanka, shopping each day to swerve the freshest food and pandering to your particular taste. Also Shalika is a mine of information and very helpful, especially in my case when I had computer problems! I shall come again and stay for longer.
