I had a wonderful stay at Silaa Cabanas. The family is taking very good care of you and I got a really early breakfast because my bus was going very early in the morning. The breakfast was freshly prepared and tasted delicious! The beach is in walking distance and there are many restaurants around. The bus station to Trincomalee is also reachable within a 10 minutes walk. I really enjoyed my stay and would definitely come back again! Thanks for accommodating me!

We recently stayed three nights here & it was lovely. The owner was away & his father & the housekeeper looked after us so well. The cabanas are so nicely fitted out with everything you need. We had air conditioning & a lovely balcony to sit on. It is a very restful environment & walking distance to nearby cafes & restaurants. The housekeeper cooked us breakfast each morning, beautiful banana pancakes & fresh fruit, so delicious. We can highly recommend a stay at this lovely place.

Silaa cabanas is situated along the “hotel and hostel route” of Uppuveli. It is easily overlook as there is just a wooden sign. A massive tree gives shade to a small compound surrounded by small cabanas – on one side with fan, on the other and slightly bigger the ones with AC. There is a small restaurant where breakfast is served. There are dishes on the menu for lunch and dinner although I am not sure if those had to be ordered in advance. The cabanas are small and dark but cosy. There is a nice veranda-like place with comfy chairs to sit in the evenings. As we needed an additional bed for our children there was virtually no space left in the room to set your foot on – no problem as we were in only for meals and at night. The mattresses were a bit too soft, the linen a bit unpleasantly smelling but nothing really to complain about. Mosquito nets were there, old, with some holes but still acceptable. The room was clean. Bathroom was clean as well, the shower with an additional heater to provide hot water, equipment was working but very basic. We had a non-AC cabana and although two fans were working hard it was really hot during day time and in the evening. The nights were ok for sleeping with both fans. As the cabanas are built of wood in an individual style there are good chances for ants, bugs, spiders and other insects to come in but we had no unpleasant visitors. Breakfast was tasty and served in the garden under the big tree. We could use the kitchen in the evenings for preparing our own food which was very kind from the owner and made things easier for us and the small kids. Access to the beach is a five minutes walk and there is a very cool restaurant – Fernando´s – directly beachfront. There are a lot of restaurants and shops within walking distance, to Trincomallee it’s a 10 minutes Tuk-Tuk ride or slightly longer by bus. In summary, the place is nice, huts are still ok, staff is friendly and very very helpful and the location is very good. So don´t hesitate to stay there.

There are about 10 cabanas facing a small garden. A quiet neighborhood with only a small access road. It's 5 minutes walk to the beach on side roads. The beach was not very nice (full of trash). The room was small but had a tiny desk on which I did some computer work. There are some shelves to keep stuff and clothes and two bedside tables. There is a mosquito net and it even has AC! There is also a small fridge and free WiFi. As small as the room is, it is perfectly equipped and we spent a good night's sleep in the comfortable big bed. The bathroom is also ok with hot showever. It was all clean. The dinner (a la carte) was very good and I loved the pancake I got for breakfast.

We loved staying and dining at Silaa Cabana! Not only are the cabanas absolutely great and furnished with love, also you'll find the best hosts there. It is just a few minutes from the beach, it's cosy to hang out there, and many bars/restaurants are close - Max is a fantastic chef, though so you don't have to go anywhere ;-) Thank you Silani, Neville & Max for having us!
