This is the most beautiful place I have been to in Sri Lanka. It is hard to find words for this amazing place. You will quickly feel like home and don't want to leave. The temperature is refreshing thanks to the nice trees of the jungle, you wake up with the sound of the birds, can do some Yoga under the trees and maybe you can watch some monkeys playing in the Jackfruit trees while you enjoy your amazing breakfast. You have some of the most beautiful beaches in walking distance which are not very touristic (sometimes you even have a beach for yourself). Sanke is an amazing cook - you should not miss his seafood! If you want to learn surfing, go snorkeling, do a day trip with the scooter, enjoy the beautiful sunset at the Rocktemple... everything is possible from there. But the most beautiful thing is the atmosphere of this place, created with so much love and passion by Sanke and Mahalia. You cannot do anything wrong with staying at into the blue! <3

Wow! Hands down my most favourite accommodation during my 3 week Sri Lankan journey. Into the Blue - such a natural and tranquil space, set in the lush jungle with monkeys in the trees, hammocks in the garden, with beautiful 3 newly built cabanas to stay in. Not to mention the power team looking after us. Mahalia and Sanke thanks for for such an incredible experience and for making our stay here so great. Breakfasts were power * and the beaches exquisite and secret. Was hard to leave - and I am so looking forward to returning again. Would highly recommend this spot to my best friends and family. It’s top class!!! Thank you

This place is filled with so much love for details. Mahalia and Sanka are lovely hosts who made my stay perfect. They know the area and give you tipps for beautiful beaches around. I went surfing with them in a beautiful bay where turtles swam around us!
Into the Blue is away from the masses but close enough to Tangalle when you're also looking for some city vibes.
Into the Blue has huge Cabanas and rooms in the villa. You can get fresh breakfast or tasty Sri Lankan Dinner.
If you are looking for a beautiful place to stay in Sri Lanka: it should be Into The Blue! :)
Good luck with your project, Mahalia and Sanka! Hope to see you soon again.

Last October I spend a month in Sri Lanka with my best friend and we stayed for a week at Into the Blue... if you find yourself in Tangalle you should definitely book a couple of nights (I recommend more than just 2nights) at this magical guest house!!!
Mahalia and Sanke will show you everything about the Sri Lankan jungle and you ll get the chance to taste everyday fresh handmade food surrounded by a breathtaking nature!!! I’ll definetly Stay here next time I go back to Sri Lanka!
You won’t be disappointed...see it to believe it!

We spent 4 nights at Into The Blue, which is owned and run by Mahalia and Sanke. We are a family of 4,2 of which are teenagers. Mahalia and Sanke are great hosts, very welcoming and made us feel at home. Opened in 2018, Mahalia and Sanke have renovated the house - it has 3 bedrooms which share a bathroom. The kitchen is at the back. In the grounds are 3 further Cabañas - all with en suite bathrooms. These are simply decorated with plain wood slatted walls, a bed, mosquito net, desk and chair, hooks to hang clothes on and bedside table and lamp. On the terrace is a chair and table. The bathroom has cold - warm water. The water is heated by the sun on the black pipes and water tanks, so the temperature varies depending on the time of day you shower. The bathroom has a polished concrete floor and concrete walls with wooden shelf with the ceramic sink laid into it. The shower head is large and the toilet modern and flushing.

The grounds have many plants and there is a patio outside the main house where yoga or pilates takes place, as well as doubling up as a chill out area and the dining room. There are hammocks in the grounds and they are planning a yoga shala and a massage hut - yet to be finished. We were there over Christmas and the meal laid on on Christmas Eve was perfect. We had a choice of seafood and vegetarian. Delicious. Breakfast was a choice of oats and fruit or Sri Lanka breakfast of egg, dhal etc. Bread, jam, honey, tea and coffee too. Fresh coconuts are available daily. Jackfruit curry was delicious made from fruits found in the grounds.
There are two dogs and the gorgeous little kitten, Leo, who we fell in love with. Monkeys and squirrels play in the trees. We were watched by four large grey monkeys in our last yoga session, who enjoy teasing the dog.

Into the Blue is reached by a narrow road the main road. The hosts organize surf lessons for you in Tuk Tuk Bay, which is 5-10 minutes walk. They do organise Tuk Tuk transport for you to the surf locations, whether they are in Tuk Tuk Bay or elsewhere. The yoga, breakfast, surfing, transport to the surf beaches and back, as well as the accommodation were inclusive of the price we paid.

Would I stay there again? Yes
Would I recommend it? Yes

It is basic, clean, chic, comfortable, friendly, relaxing, welcoming, eco friendly, stomach-filling and heart-warming. Mahalia and Sanke are kind, decent, non-judgemental hosts. We couldn’t have wished for anything else.

Thank you for a lovely stay, Mahalia and Sanke.
