At the end of the road along the beach, direction South West, you will find this wonderful place. We had tried about seven other places before on this road and they were too small, no AC and overpriced. This one is right on the beach with a nice lagoon at the back and a big garden, swimming pool and restaurant.... More

Stayed 8 days Jan 2016, a family of 5. Noting that we had already travelled for 2 weeks across Sri Lanka we were hoping for some relaxing time at the beach. And we had a great time here, and actually given our experience at Unawatuna later on we felt relieved that we stayed here for 8 days. No it’s not... More

Stayed over Christmas and while it is not luxurious we spent a lovely 5 days here. It is very peaceful and nowhere near as bad as suggested in a recent previous review. Bearing in mind the disaster caused by the tsunami which included the death of the previous owner, the comments below by Glynnjudd are ignorant and distasteful. Moving on.....staff... More

We found Suwaya after wandering along the coast road of Tangalle looking for somewhere with a swimming pool. It’s a quiet, picturesque, pleasant resort of about 20 odd rooms sandwiched between a lagoon on one side and the beach/sea on the other, about 20 minutes’ walk east of Tangalle along the beach road, about 200/- in a Tuktuk. We chose... More

Having looked at the reviews and viewed the pictures we were duped into paying way to much money for a luxurious villa with a sea view. Firstly the photos used by agoda etc are over 10 years old. The place looks like a war torn high street in Syria. The pool had so much floating in it I actually thought... More

We stayed at this hotel for 7 days in November 2015, towards the end of the low-season. The location: the hotel is located at a fabulous location between a large lagoon and magnificent Marakolliya beach at the end of a dirt road, about 10 minutes drive out of town. Don’t be put off by the rough road. There are plenty... More

In earlier reviews I read maintenance was planned for the low season. Definitely not low season 2015! Property makes an aerie, declined impression. Swimming pool is good, though. As adding an extra bed to a room would be double the cost of an extra room, we booked two deluxe suites instead of a villa. Turns out that one of the... More

We read about the Suwaya Villa in the Lonely Planet. We were looking for somewhere nice to chill for the last few day of our holiday after traveling round Sri Lanka. The road to the accommodation isn't great, however went up and down it in a two wheel drive. The location is perfect with the beach on one side and... More
