Exelent service, very clean rooms, the staff was professionals, polite, helpful and very discreet. Lovely Breakfast, cool drinks (with or without alcohol) and very good food. I do not want to write a lot......The only thing you have... More

This place is truly set in paradise- sandy beaches, palm trees, hammocks to sunbathe in etc... We stayed in the top floor of one of the chalets. The rooms are big but fairly simple and you have your own balcony which is nice to relax on in the evening. The lighting was a little minimal which made it hard to... More

This place is a complete waste of money. You're better off staying at Ganesh gardens just down the beach as we did after staying here. The room is so so - old bed and very old sheets and towels, dirty shower, no mosquito net in the room. We spent over double here for one night and two meals then we... More

We had a wonderful time here and really appreciated the reviews from other guests to help us choose the right accommodation for us. Although we heard that chalets 1 and 2 were closer to the beach, the main requirement was A/C as only two chalets have this and it can get HOT!! I believe the two chalets with A/C are... More

Two years after initially staying here, we returned as newlyweds - we always knew we would. The beach cabanas are minimalist, but with your front door opening up onto unspoiled beach and the waves of of the wild Indian Ocean. A trap door leads to the bathroom beneath the bedroom. Loungers and hammocks dot the sand in between the palm... More

Lovely if you want to live as Robinson Crusoe, otherwise it's far from Tangalle. In the cananas you have no windows no AC and it could be warm in the dry season. Bathroom is in the underground and the trap and stairs are not so easy to use by night. The baddest point is the beach as in march there... More

Simply excellent! From the rooms (we stayed at the chalets) to the staff and the bar/food. The beach is beautiful and clean. The only negative point (and it is an important one as this is not well explained on their website): you can't swim at the beach, except at the "natural rock pool", as the waves and currents are very...

This place is a little piece of paradise. We have just stayed for 3 nights in the beach cabanas and loved every minute of it. This is the place if you want to get away from it all and unwind. The cabanas are simply furnished and it was lovely to go to sleep hearing the waves lapping on the shore.... More
