We really enjoyed this hotel. Location is great. It's located on top of a hill far from the main road, which makes it really quiet. Get an ocean view chalet and you will not be disappointed. Views were fantastic! Pros: The hotel has yoga classes, massage, two pools, beach access, a great tuk-tuk service, it's clean and just an overall...

This place has a nice beach access and the staff are pleasent and that is it. Breakfast was the worst we have had since being in Sri Lanka we basically ate toast as the rest was of a very very poor standard. The pools were filthy and although they tried to clean it was just covered in bugs and leaves...

We had a great time here. Granted, this is probably a resort that was once quite upmarket for the area, with its two pools and waterfront location, and I can see how it's probably become a little shabby by comparison to places like the nearby Anantara - however, for a family wanting simply to relax without being worried about every...

Very disappointed with the wonderful tropical gardens they mention on their TripAdvisor page. Maybe 10 years ago the gardens was well kept and neat but now there are remnants of nice gardens with loads of weeds growing in between. Most concerning was the coconuts above the walkways and old coconut leaves falling down. In four days I saw 3 leaves...

This is just my opinion. It seems many people have been happy here but I was not and left after seeing my room. I guess the reviews were what swayed me to stay here but I didn't read closely enough. One big issue was wifi. It was only available in one small area of the hotel. It wasn't available in...

Eva Lanka might have seen better days, but it is a charming place, secluded from traffic and noise. The beach is good for swimming on both sides of the patio. There are two salt water pool, but at least one of them had chlorine added. AC functioned at all times, and the chalets are spacious. There was, however, a leak...

Booked Eva Lanka through booking.com, for cheaper rate, including breakfast. Visited in July (off season), hotel had only few guests staying at that time. We had a beachfront bungalow. Pool was nice and clean, the beach had rough waves to swim in. Great place for families with kids. Easy to get a tuk-tuk in and out of Tangalle, or surrounding...

Me and my wife visited here on a trip around Sri Lanka and this has been the worst place by far. I believe in the saying "you get what you pay for" however even though we paid around $80 USD a night we didn't get even close to that value at the Eva Lanka. Pros - place has two pools...

Good morning and thank you for your review, we will consider your suggestions and we will do our best to improve. I think your review is exaggerated and untruthful and I`d like to answer just to some points as your own is one of the few negative reviews. First, you came in off season for south Sri Lanka, that the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Like in Paradise: far away from hustle and bustle the Eva Lanka Resort is situated: On a little hill, surrounded by a wonderful tropical garden and bordered from one of the most beautiful beaches in the south of Sri Lanka. Descrizione The Eva Lanka Hotel is located in one of the most beautiful parts on the south coast of Sri Lanka, set in a secluded jungle-like area, near the little and typical fisher town Tangalle. Hidden under leafy trees, the big cottages are perched on a slide hill, overlooking a gorgeous piece of the Indian Ocean. The white-sand beaches surrounding the Resort, the clear water of the coral bay in front of it and the 30000 sq m hotel garden with thousands of tropical trees, plants and flowers, make a natural paradise of it. Informazioni generali The Hotel is 190 km distant from Colombo. You can book the transfer from Colombo Airport to the Hotel in one of the Hotels mini busses or an air taxi transfer offered by Sri Lankan Airlines. ... more   less
