“Best time in Sri Lanka!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We had the best time at "The horizon bay tropuical paradise", we definitly recommend this beautiful place!
The two romms were nice and clean and were the best we had while our stay at Sri Lanka. We dicided to get dinner at the place, which was super delicious, no matter if it was Sri Lankin or european Food.
It was served at the terrance by wild nature and an awesome seaview, by the nicest staff and cooked by Nuwan, the owner himself!
The service at "Horizon's" was the best, they tried to fulfil every wish and whim while our stay.
There was a Driver who picked us up from the Airport to bring us to "Horizon".
Nuwan calls tuk tukes or Drivers for daily trips and he helped us to plan our route throught Sri Lanka!
Apart from differentand exiting excursions we had the most relaxed time at some of the beaches, which are in walking distance from the Horizon. Especially the silent beach blew our minds!
In the end it was the best Price-Performance Ratio at all, parred with indigenous hospitality! We had a blast, thank you Nuwan- we hope to see u again!

“Sri Lankan Hospitality Overflowed”
Reviewed 27 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

This was my first visit to the island of Sri Lanka. Horizon Bay really knocked it out of the park for us. Nuwan, the owner, really worked hard to make sure we enjoyed our stay and helped us see all of the beauty Tangalle has to offer. He is an excellent chef and as a result we ate all of our meals(breakfast and dinner) at the house. Ask for it and he will make it for you! He also fixed any problems we had with our accommodations immediately!

Rooms were spacious and beds were comfortable. The property had a great view of the ocean and a good breeze on both verandas. A lot of fruit and flower trees around as well. Sometimes the shower was a bit difficult to get the right temperature but not a huge deal. Another slight draw back is the property is situated close to the road, therefore a lot of road noise. At night it calms down quite a bit and I didn’t notice it when I was sleeping but if you like to sleep with the windows open it might be bothersome.

The best beach within walking distance is Silent Beach. The locals that live along the way are very friendly and make sure you bring sweets to give to the children (but it’s not necessary just fun to do). In March the water was a bit rough for swimming at this beach so not great for kids but the beach was almost private with not a lot of tourists. There are other beaches with in a short tuktuk ride away and Nuwan will be happy to arrange this for you.

The house’s driver, Mahinda, did an excellent job picking us up at the airport and taking us to Yalla and Bundala National Parks and other day excursions. He found great restaurants along the way and was willing to make stops whenever we asked and even suggested places we should see. He was very knowledgeable about Sri Lankan history, customs, and made sure we had a great time. Another staff member, Ranga, who was our waiter for our meals, also took us to hidden beaches, fishing and taught us Sinhalese. All the employees did an awesome job and were very respectful and giving of their time.

If you are a traveler that really likes to dive into the culture of the country, this place will go out of their way to help you experience it!

“TROPICAL HELL”
Reviewed 5 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

We were excited about our trip to Sri Lanka. We booked 39 days at the Horizon Bay Tropical Paradise and paid in advance. This is an act of trust and good faith, but one that I doubt we will ever repeat.
Despite what it says in the Trip Advisor ad you do not get a whole villa or anything like it. It is actually four dark rooms up many flights of stairs right next to a noisy main road. The decor was cheap and the place smelled of Napthalene and drains an ambience more like a youth hostel than a tropical paradise. We insisted that we couldn’t stay there and so the owner Nuwan placed us in a small family home near Silent beach. Although the house was cute in a rustic kind of way it was not a holiday let. When we arrived there was no hot water, no AC and no WiFi. There were no cooking facilities, no garden furniture (in fact not much furniture of any kind) and the place was filthy. The bathroom and kitchen in particular were really nasty. This was gradually improved upon over the first ten days we were there by a constant stream of workmen and helpers though the results were not satisfactory. The ancient second-hand AC took three days to put in and then broke down after a week. It then took another 2 days to fix. When it was running in was a bit like sleeping next to an idling tuk tuk. It broke again the day we left. The hot water arrived after ten days, and only then in the shower. At least the WIFI worked most of the time even if it was more like dial-up than broadband. Nuwan constantly told us how lucky we were to have him solving all these problems for us. For this we were charged $108 a night, which Nuwan told us was a fair price. Considering we are now staying in a four bedroomed villa in an acre of land with a 40’ pool for $150 a night it was actually extortionate. But we were naive, and we thought it would get better.
Things actually got worse as we realised over the next few days that we were in the middle of a busy village. There were dogs barking until the small hours, screaming kids, revving motorcycles and tuk tuks, blasting music, sawing, banging and chopping, burning plastic fumes and even a crazy man howling and shouting at 6 in the morning.
After almost two weeks we were tired and irritable and decided we had to go. Nuwan talked us out of it. He apologised for the problems and said he would fix everything. We took pity on him, but we lasted another few days at which point we went for a massage in another villa and the unsuitability of our house became glaringly apparent; we really had to leave. It took us another week to find somewhere but we had no choice but to tough it out. When the day finally came Nuwan presented us with a fairly hefty bill for food and other services he had provided (there was no menu, he just decided what to charge us) and rather than argue we agreed to knock it off the refund we were due for the 13 days left on the deposit which we had already paid. He went berserk, shouting and barking orders at us and threatening us with the police. At this point I had had enough. I told him to fetch the police, which he did later that day. I ended up answering an official complaint which he made against me in Tangalle police station and at the time of writing this I still don’t have my money back.
Nuwan ruthlessly exploited the trust we placed in him. If he is allowed by the police to keep our money he will have conned us out of $162 per night for this house. As I write this I am sitting in a beautiful villa in Unawatuna but it doesn’t alter the fact that we wasted three weeks being manipulated by this person and I still don’t have my money back despite all the aggro and spending hours in the Police Station. At least we found the right place in the end, with wonderful, gentle hosts who are genuinely caring and our faith in humanity has been restored. I have no axe to grind. I just wanted a nice place to stay with a little peace and quiet for a fair price. I have travelled all over the world and of course one has problems but this was a stressful on a level beyond anything I have ever had to deal with and the last thing anyone would want to put up with on holiday.
It’s not over for us yet; we will be taking further action to resolve our issues through the appropriate channels in due course. Not what you want to be doing when you’re trying to rest. I really hope you manage to avoid what we went through. Tropical Hell.

“ABSOLUTE EXCELLENT!!!”
Reviewed 15 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

The best Sri Lanka Trip you can get!!!

The house location ist perfect and you are in 1 minute directly at the beautiful beach. The rooms are very clean and the service is still perfect. Every day fresh cooked fish, chicken or whatever you want. The food is much better than in every 5 Star Hotel in Europe. Haven't aten better and fresher in my whole life.

Also you´ve got a 24h Security and Service. Luxury Breakfast in the morning, Tea, cold beers... whatever you want.

With this House, this service, the absolute friendly and awesome people you can begin your perfect holiday.

Moreover there are no things in my mind that you can handle anything better here in Sri Lanka!

5 Stars for Mr. Nuwan and his team
