Where to begin? In a word, paradise. Eva Lanka is, as far as one can tell, paradise. My wife and I arrived on a Saturday evening and were met by the ever smiling and charming manager, Manju. We were issued with delicious welcome drinks then we were escorted to our ocean view chalet by one of the members of staff,... More

Despite this hotel being recommended to us, we were rather disappointed with some aspects of it. The good points - the view from the chalet, the spacious room, two salt water swimming pools, attentive and beautifully turned out staff, availability of yoga/ayurvedic treatments on site, peacocks and birds in the lovely garden, private beach, Manju (?) manager's helpful attitude.

Having travelled "the world" we have now met the highest level of service-minded hotel-managing. Ever. Whatever we asked for, it was possible - even cutting down trees, for a better view of the ocean! Manju, is worth a goldmine. The setting is lovely and calm, and most rooms are quite private. Be sure to get an ocean-view chalet. The pool... More

The hotel is located in a huge garden with 60 different species of plants. Squirrels, iguanas and peacocks go by in front of your eyes. The bungalows are almost unseen in this garden and some of them have a view to the ocean. We had number 20 and we could hear the ocean while sleeping. There are two pools with... More

The staff do their best to keep them clean but they are hardly suitable for staying in. We liked the restaurant and food test and quality very much. The staff of the hotel... More

Our stay in this hotel was perfect. We stayed in a sea view bungalow which was in the middle of a wonderful tropical garden with more than 500 species. Lots of birds too. Here, luxury is about being in the middle of nature. We paid a very reasonable price for half board and breakfast and dinner were amazing. The staff... More
