Our most expensive accommodation in Sri Lanka and also our worst. We booked into the hotel and quickly realized that the pictures on the internet were out dated and very flattering. The accommodation is dirty and seems like they are running out of funds to upkeep the premises. When we confronted the manager he acknowledged that the marketing material are...

Checkin: We arrived at the hotel a day in advance, we checked the status and everything was supposed to be fine, at arrival the hotel was "totally booked" meaning that somehow our original booking wasn't available either... Without us knowing. This happened to another couple during our stay, the hotel sent a mail to a "noreply" adress the day before...

We arrived here on New Year's Day with hour 3 year old daughter having book. A 'private luxury villa'. On arrival we were told our booking had been cancelled and Agoda had been informed (via email at 8pm on 30th to a noreply@agoda.com address. (Please see pics). No apology was given and the extremely rude staff didn't seem to see...

This was a comfortable, secluded little "resort" sandwiched between a glorious beach and mangroves. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. The grounds and pool area could use some TLC and a woman's touch but it was adequate and we were sorry we could not stay longer. If you enjoy hot water, be warned that it is available but only for...

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...
