We stayed a week at nisala arana - we knew the place was going to be beautiful - you can tell from the website - but we were a bit worried about the location. the location was perfect: immersed in a quiet tropical village life, with bikes available to go to the local temple and lotus pond, and a 2 km bike to the beach which is beautiful, serene, and a great boogie boarding beach. and plenty of fun tuk tuks / 3 wheelers if you don't fancy the bike ride. we stayed in the coconut cottage, the outside bathroom was a bonus - lovely to have a shower outdoors under the palm trees. And the chef was outstanding - best food of the trip by far. In fact all of the staff were outstanding - harry and tony were fantastic - not something we encountered anywhere else on our trip. At nisala arana you get to enjoy a serene garden and pool, a beautiful beach life but without being part of the massive resorts or being surrounded by tourists.
