Eva Lanka might have seen better days, but it is a charming place, secluded from traffic and noise. The beach is good for swimming on both sides of the patio. There are two salt water pool, but at least one of them had chlorine added. AC functioned at all times, and the chalets are spacious. There was, however, a leak...

Booked Eva Lanka through booking.com, for cheaper rate, including breakfast. Visited in July (off season), hotel had only few guests staying at that time. We had a beachfront bungalow. Pool was nice and clean, the beach had rough waves to swim in. Great place for families with kids. Easy to get a tuk-tuk in and out of Tangalle, or surrounding...

Me and my wife visited here on a trip around Sri Lanka and this has been the worst place by far. I believe in the saying "you get what you pay for" however even though we paid around $80 USD a night we didn't get even close to that value at the Eva Lanka. Pros - place has two pools...

Loved this place for it's off the tourist trail position. The beach was awesome and great for sunset photos. The two pools of the hotel clean and refreshing. The staff were very attentive and the massage good value. Make sure you book an ocean view room as you will be disappointed if you don't. We went off season in September...

I spent a week here with my family and we were all able to relax in the great rooms with a beautiful sea view and lovely swmming pools. Not to mention the delicious food, we've had fresh fruit and grilled fish and several delicious breakfasts. Staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Strongly recommend the Eva Hotel.

We have been in Sri Lanka for 2 weeks and stayed in 5 different places. This is the best. There are two beautiful pools, not too cold to swim. The staff are incredibly friendly and willing and looked after us extremely well. The food is by far the best we have had in Sri Lanka; mixed grills with several varieties...

Only stayed on night but thoroughly enjoyed time here. Setting is beautiful with a high standard of accommodation. We had a 4 person bungalow, hot water is solar heated so not consistently hot.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Like in Paradise: far away from hustle and bustle the Eva Lanka Resort is situated: On a little hill, surrounded by a wonderful tropical garden and bordered from one of the most beautiful beaches in the south of Sri Lanka. Descrizione The Eva Lanka Hotel is located in one of the most beautiful parts on the south coast of Sri Lanka, set in a secluded jungle-like area, near the little and typical fisher town Tangalle. Hidden under leafy trees, the big cottages are perched on a slide hill, overlooking a gorgeous piece of the Indian Ocean. The white-sand beaches surrounding the Resort, the clear water of the coral bay in front of it and the 30000 sq m hotel garden with thousands of tropical trees, plants and flowers, make a natural paradise of it. Informazioni generali The Hotel is 190 km distant from Colombo. You can book the transfer from Colombo Airport to the Hotel in one of the Hotels mini busses or an air taxi transfer offered by Sri Lankan Airlines. ... more   less
