Our stay at Subodinee was perfect. We had a few reservations on arrival as the cabanas are set back from the beach and left point (across the main road) but the room was immaculate, bathroom was clean and shower was powerful and the staff were incredibly friendly. It was a shame to hear that a number of French guests have taken it upon themselves to write poor reviews of Subodinee in order to keep prices low for their future long-term stays, it shows how much of a gem this place is when certain folk want to keep it to themselves. If you are staying in Midigama and want to explore some of this coastline, stay here. Also get tuk tuks from 'big-boy', he knows all the best places to get a munch and a wave and also hires some boards from his own guest house if you need them (we didn't but he was dying to show us them! You won't miss him, he's a big big fella, incredibly friendly and doesn't muck about with prices) Subodinee offers lovely cabanas at very reasonable prices with staff who couldn't have been more friendly. We couldn't recommend this place enough

Room Tip: Get a cabana!

The staff/owners are very friendly and helpful. The home-cooked dinners (rice and curry) were fantastic.

The rooms are however quite basic and incredibly hot and stuffy (no a/c, very poor ventilation). They are however quite clean and the showers have hot water (not required with the heat). The mattresses are not particularly comfortable either. However considering the price I guess it is not too bad.

Subodinee is for surfers. It's in Midigama, which has a well known left reef break. There are about half a dozen guest houses in Midigama and not much else. No shops or restaurants apart from a small shop selling water and biscuits, and a roadside shack that does fantastic rice and curry! The larger villages of Ahugama and Weligama (where there is a good beginner's beach break) are a short tuk tuk ride away.

Subodinee itself is not right on the beach, which is good as the coast road runs right behind the guesthouses that are on the beach. It's about a 5 minute walk away on a local road perpendicular to the beach. There's a range of accommodation with different amenities and different prices on different sites. Email communication was somewhat unclear as to what exactly I was going to get, but i ended up with a nice room. Prices are good. My room, with no AC or hot water, was 20 euro per night including a good breakfast with choice of fruit, yogurt, eggs, toast, pancakes or hoppers plus tea / coffee. Most people ate dinner there too, which is good Sri lankan food (not too spicy) served family style. The site I was on had cabanas arranged around a large grassy area, plus rooms above the restaurant area. Most guests are French. You can also hire surfboards at a good rate.

The owners are incredibly nice and friendly. I found the people in Sri Lanka to be the nicest I've ever met and the owners of Subodinee were top of the pile! The beach is beautiful, the food is good and the pace of life relaxed. So what are you waiting for??

Room Tip: Clarify exactly what you're getting, if this matters to you. Helpful if you speak French, as th...
