We came from the beachfront after having checked several other places. Found a place with a little bit off seasonish atmosphere. Immediately we were greeted by a very friendly owner who showed us our room and offered a very reasonable price. The room was well furnished (nice wooden bed!) they even had candles to support the feeling :) Every morning...

Only 3 of 25 chalets occupied when we visited (in the August off season) so hard to judge the place in some ways. Rooms had AC and were very clean. We only ate hear for breakfast - which was absolutely delicious. We ate lunch and evening meals at the places either side, which were busier and had their restaurants right...

At the end of the road along the beach, direction South West, you will find this wonderful place. We had tried about seven other places before on this road and they were too small, no AC and overpriced. This one is right on the beach with a nice lagoon at the back and a big garden, swimming pool and restaurant....

Stayed 8 days Jan 2016, a family of 5. Noting that we had already travelled for 2 weeks across Sri Lanka we were hoping for some relaxing time at the beach. And we had a great time here, and actually given our experience at Unawatuna later on we felt relieved that we stayed here for 8 days. No it’s not...

Stayed over Christmas and while it is not luxurious we spent a lovely 5 days here. It is very peaceful and nowhere near as bad as suggested in a recent previous review. Bearing in mind the disaster caused by the tsunami which included the death of the previous owner, the comments below by Glynnjudd are ignorant and distasteful. Moving on.....staff...

We found Suwaya after wandering along the coast road of Tangalle looking for somewhere with a swimming pool. It’s a quiet, picturesque, pleasant resort of about 20 odd rooms sandwiched between a lagoon on one side and the beach/sea on the other, about 20 minutes’ walk east of Tangalle along the beach road, about 200/- in a Tuktuk. We chose...

Having looked at the reviews and viewed the pictures we were duped into paying way to much money for a luxurious villa with a sea view. Firstly the photos used by agoda etc are over 10 years old. The place looks like a war torn high street in Syria. The pool had so much floating in it I actually thought...

We stayed at this hotel for 7 days in November 2015, towards the end of the low-season. The location: the hotel is located at a fabulous location between a large lagoon and magnificent Marakolliya beach at the end of a dirt road, about 10 minutes drive out of town. Don’t be put off by the rough road. There are plenty...
