Ramani, the owner, makes great rice and curries- cooked with fresh ingredients. She also makes fabulous banana pancakes! The prices are reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area which are mostly overpriced.

We didn't stay at Ramani's home because we had already found accommodation and would only be in Tangalle two more days, but I would not hesitate to recommend her family home to travellers who want to live with and learn from Sri Lankan people. We had a fabulous afternoon and evening learning how to cook a complete family meal, which...

Although we did not stay at Ananda I popped in to see If I could arrange a cooking class with Ramani. We then came back the next day and had the best time cooking a range of Sri Lankan dishes. She was so lovely and accommodating, making a menu that we wanted to learn to cook and showing us how...

This is a special place. It felt more like a home than a guesthouse. Host Ramani is fabulous, very helpful, and a great cook. She's like a mom! She makes the place great! Ramani told me of a direct Tangalle to Colombo express morning bus that uses the highway and leaves from Tangalle (so you're guaranteed to get a seat)....

As soon as we set foot in the door we were made to feel at home and Ramani was incredibly helpful; from organizing...

The reviews have all said it before, the kindness of the host, the amazing food, the sounds of the waves make this a special spot. Beach bars and restaurants are on your door step and are littered along the beach for miles. Some of the beach cabanas in other places look incredible (and I would be tempted if I returned)...

We've spend 4 great days here. The biggest bed we had on our trip! Room was facing the ocean, you can fall asleep to the sound of the waves. Host welcomes you with a big smile, her hospitality is amazing. You have to try coconut pancakes!
