We found this guesthouse in a serendipitous way and spent here 2 lovely nights. The guesthouse is set in a beautiful garden with a perfect breeze, overlooking the lagoon (amazing sunsets!). It is clean, well serviced and tastefully furnished. It is located within a 10-15 min walk from the beach and the great thing is that once we arrived we... More

Lovely little guesthouse in quiet, off the beaten track Nilaveli. Our room was perfect (there are only 4 in the place). Comfy bed with lovely open plan bathroom (and hot water!) Fan only but room was very light and airy so no a/c wasn't an issue. It's a good 15 minute walk from the beach but the stay comes with... More

The Surya Lagon is more boutique B&B than a guesthouse and is very well furnished and finished. The elegant bedrooms and communal areas are spotlessly clean and well maintained by the helpful staff who can also provide a simple but delicious evening meal. We rated the rice and curry as good, if not better that the Heritance Kandalama, and there... More

Charming house with four rooms, two large and two smaller ones. No air condition and at night it was pretty hot. Very good wifi even in the room. Ceiling fans in every room. Simple breakfast and nice dinner upon request. We took three rooms and had the entire house for us. Convention with Nilaveli Beach Hotel, where you can swim... More

Clean, relaxed and at a short tuktuk distance from a very exclusive beach resort (use included in price). Very nice rooms. At quiet and special location. Beautifully decorated. Best bathroom we found in sri lanka. We sleept with 4 in 1 room which was a little tight (one on matress on Floor). Taking this into account, we found the price... More

Very nice house in a quiet surrounding located 15min walk of the gorgeous nilaveli beach. The manager is a really nice person and he is doing a great job! A huge plus is the free access to the pool area of the nilaveli beach hotel located on the beach side.

After having stayed at the (also excellent) Villa Araliya in Negombo, we chose to prolong our stay in Trincomalee/Upaveli/Nilaveli area in this guest house which is run by the same family. There are four rooms in total and we had three of them, being the only guests during this low-season period. Location is on the "wrong" side (not sea-side) of... More

After staying at surya lagoon's sister hotel in Negombo we decided to give this one a go and it did not disappoint. The rooms are large, beautifully clean and light, with clean and beautiful bathrooms with the coolest taps you've ever seen. The location seems very isolated when you first arrive, there is not sign of life except some sleeping... More

This place was superbly peaceful. a good getaway from the busy Colombo. Even though the hotel is in the land side, the beach is near by. The owner of the hotel is very helpful as well as the staff. The hotel environment is very calm and quite and do not offer meat at the restaurant. The lagoon is very beautiful... More

This place was absolutely beautiful, but like most other places in Nilaveli (and Sri Lanka) they were much over priced! The Bungalow is on a big lot off the main road. The whole place is very aesthetically pleasing and the guys working there are helpful, kind, and sweet. The included breakfast was good and was consumed around a common table,... More

Surya Lagoon is situated 18 KM north of Trincomalee town, where the most beautiful beach is. The house in on a old coconut plantation, which has eight acres. The land is facing the lagoon where you find quietness, peace and calmness. The over 50 years old house has been renovated and has now four room all with attached bathroom, small restaurant and nice living area facing the garden.
