“Lovely hotel in a wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful place perfectly situated close to several beaches. Lovely, spacious, clean rooms, and lovely balconies for evening drinks. Great food too. Best of all was the perfect, friendly, accommodating service we received from the owner and his son. Like so many others we stayed longer than originally planned... And will definitely be coming back!

Stayed here two nights and despite having the cheapest room had a really enjoyable stay. Room was basic but clean with hot shower. Were happily surprised by the small bill when we left having also had a nice dinner.

Breakfast wasn't anything to write home about but in fairness we came down late and so there wasn't a great selection. Next morning we decided to skip breakfast but woke earlier and saw a much nicer selection. So basically the early bird gets the worm.

Staff were all really helpful and friendly. Efficiently organised a trip for us but at no point 'pushed' a trip on us.

We really liked this place.

I found Eden through rough guide Sri Lanka. After reading reviews on trip advisor I was reassured and went ahead to book a room. It was so reasonable and while the location is not great the service is impeccable! Clive and his team are amazing and make u feel very at home. My husband and I would stay here again in a heartbeat because of their hospitality. The rooms are basic and clean. Very well ventilated and clean all around. Thumbs up!

I just returned from another restful holiday in Sri Lanka. I again had the fortune of getting a room at the NugaSewana Eden Hotel in the Tangalle area. The rooms are very reasonably priced, very clean and feature Wifi, satellite TV and large bathrooms. The food is exceptional and the hotel is close to the best beaches in the south. But perhaps the best reason to stay there is the friendly, helpful and attentive staff of Eden. You are made to feel as important as family, which is how I always feel on my trips there. If you travel to the southern region of Sri Lanka, it is hard to find a better spot than NugaSewana Eden.

This hotel was recommended by a local man, we had nothing booked. Booked for 1 night and extended our stay by 4 days. Paid in US dollars, its cheaper. Rooms were very clean and en-suite well cleaned. Great views form the second floor. The resaraunt was Ok, good selecton on the menu. This guest house the owner was on site all the time. We used the mosquito net, just in case, but only saw two, which I killed.

We stayed for four days at the beginning of Dec 2012. I am still wishing we could have stayed longer! The whole experience was perfect.
Our large,spotlessly clean balcony room with bathroom overlooked the beautiful beach with palm trees where the parrakeets come to roost every night. We were served beautiful food, cooked fresh whenever we chose to eat, including an introduction to "Yurt" which is the best yoghurt I have ever tasted (made from water buffalo milk)and the Sear fish..delicious!
Clive and his family looked after us in every way and arranged a friendly tuk tuk driver to take us to visit local attractions. Clive, with whom I booked direct, also arranged our car and driver for the rest of our stay in Sri Lanka he certainly kept his promise to provide a safe car and a good driver...Thusith was the best!! Thank you so much for a wonderful time. Gwyneth and Lorraine.

This is a great value mid-range hotel at US$35 a night for an aircon room. The hotel is situated behind a road which crosses in front of a lovely beach, with usually nobody on it. This beach doesn't have umbrellas etc but everything is just a short tuk-tuk ride away. The rooms are clean, the aircon is good and the beds are very comfortable indeed. The beds also have mosquito nets. There is wifi access included.

The staff are friendly and helpful but never overbearing, very respectful of their guests. The owner has trained them well and also asks gently if everything is ok. The food in the restaurant is good and I enjoyed the Sri Lankan coffee for breakfast, and in the afternoon after beach time.

The only quibble I have is that the wifi was not strong in my room, which was up the back of the hotel. Sometimes I would need to sit on the patio to have wifi. The wifi is strongest right at the hotel restaurant where you can sit anytime. However this would not stop me staying here again.

Thanks to the owner and lovely staff.

Room Tip: It's worth getting a room with aircon.
