Eraeliya is amazing. Set away from the hustle and bustle of town and other crowded beaches, Eraeliya is calm, quiet and beautiful. The unique draw is the gorgeous boutique rooms, which genuinely look like something out of a design magazine. The staff are very kind and accommodating, the food is good (including for vegetarians), and the location - manicured front lawn overlooking the ocean, small, beautiful, and unbusy “Jungle beach” within a one minute walk - is pretty much perfect. If you are looking for a place to truly relax and appreciate Sri Lanka’s amazing south coast, do not miss Eraeliya.
We stayed at Eraeliya during 12 days. This experience was awesome. The place is very very beautiful and quiet in comparison with the center of Weligama bay. We lived in a perfect villa Nelum that was comfortable to stay with a baby. All Weligama and Midigama places/bars are very close and easy to go. There were no problems with the food for a 2 y.o. baby. Breakfasts and dinners were delicious, the design of the buildings and a garden is super cool! The service was above our expectations. Thank you, each member of the personnel, for our wonderful vacation💘 Hope to visit it again!
We had a pleasant stay at Eraelia this October! The weather was rainy but that was the only disadvantage of the weekend. The place was amazing! The villa was so artistic and colorful! The view from our balcony was just everything 😍 The food was very tasty and the service was great! That you very much for our pleasant stay! Hope to come back again soon!
Spent 2 relaxing and unwinding nights at the nelum villa which has a granite bathtub in the bedroom. How cool is that?. Lovely secluded and quiet location to relax and simply do nothing. Took a long walk on the beach and had a lovely spa treatment as well. Food and service was very good. Highly recommended place to stay in Weligama. Will definitely be back,
We stayed at Villa Muhudu Bella at Eraeliya. It is the villa closest to the beach and the most private one. It's right by the beach so you'll hear the sound of waves throughout your stay, and of course have a great view right from the bed. On the day of our return from Eraeliya I didn't want to leave. Stay here and you'll find out all the reasons why. The food was some of the best food I've had in all my hotel experiences in Sri Lanka. The ingredients are fresh and every meal is prepared deliciously and presented beautifully. I would recommend at least half boad, here. The main dishes we tried were the Country Breakfast (the jam that comes with the country breakfast is hands down the best jam I've tasted), Lime Pancakes, Nasi Goreng, Sri Lankan Rice & Curry, Grilled Mahi Mahi and BBQ Chicken Leg. Can't pick one as the best but I'd say the Mahi Mahi is a must try! They also serve delicious soups and desserts with every meal. The service is smooth from booking, to check out. The staff are friendly and helpful. Dulshan and Tharaka were really great in handling everything. Everyone at Eraeliya does a stellar job to keep you comfortable and happy. If you're going down South definitely stay at Eraeliya. Thank you to everyone once again for a wonderful experience. We will be back!…
I took my mother, who is usually very particular about ambiance, cleanliness, freshness and quality of food, and value for money! I was truly nervous taking her even though it was for a night! From the point of making a reservation, to the point of getting back in the car to return home, we both received "star class" service. The staff are exceptional, caring, friendly and go more than the extra mile to make your stay comfortable and memorable!! Tharuka, who handles booking was such a "delight", was consistently, polite, extremely friendly, looked into our every need, ensured that every single detail/requirement was taken care of, and constantly communicated changes etc to ensure that everything was to our liking and satisfaction! Chef Deemal, was exceptional, all our seafood orders were fresh, and cooked to perfection, which was beyond our expectation! Every effort was taken to cater to our every need, even if there were diversions to the menu at times to respond to our requests. Butler Minuda, was very friendly, courteous, very responsive and and so were housekeeping staff Sajith, Shani, Hemantha and Lahiru. We did not expect the property to be maintained to the standard that we found it to be, given close proximity to the sea, and the decline in tourist visits, but we were pleasantly surprised with the effort that is put in with every aspect of maintenance, including the garden with the commitment that Bandu and Jine, puts in, constantly watering, ensuring that manure and fertilizer is put in etc. I took a gamble by booking the property, with no one reliable recommending it, not knowing of anyone of my contacts staying in it, and stumbling upon the property via and ad hoc search on the internet. I'm sure glad i took that gamble, as I am definitely looking at going there again!!!! Everything about the place is tasteful, homely and EXCEPTIONAL!!!! Thank you to all staff, but very specially to THARUKA, as it her interraction that built my confidence..... she is an excellent staff member! Keep it up Eraeliya!!!! Sajani Ranatunge…
Very comfortable, beautiful hotel with fantastic stafe! The room is always clean, the breakfast is always tasty, the view on the swimmingpool and ocean is wonderfull!!!! I recomend this hotel for comfortable rest!!!
The place is absolutely beautiful.. the art, furniture, villas everything.. we stayed at Walauwa, all my photos are taken from it, a two bedroom Villa with a pantry and a nice veranda with beach view.. Food however is a different story.. we went on a FB and only the main course for dinner was excellent! Which was fried tuna 👌🏽 all the others ( pumpkin soup, cream of mashroom, Nasi, brownie) were average or below.. I’m assuming their main menu might be better which is in charged in dollars.. There were noticeable delays between courses too 😞 If the food was good, I would surely recommend this place.. but if you are happy to stay just cause of the view, definitely try.. 🙂
Stayed in an Amazing Villa with a sea / pool view the meals were served on time and they were also very good. Lovely for a weekend gate away for a couple. We stayed on full board basis So the meal selection options have a good variety. The “Diviya” villa was very spacious and was an cozy home for the weekend. The staff was very friendly as well.
Amazing place. Excellent hospitality. Everyone had smiling faces which was very welcoming. Wonderful service. Spacious room and calming lights. Really happy with the stay. Special mention to Ms. Tharaka. She was helpful with booking and meals choice.
