Staying at New Bay View Villa is perhaps the best hotel-experience I've ever had. The place is perfectly located with an especially beautiful view of the sea. A short walk takes you to a gorgeous and quiet beach, a short tuktuk ride will take you to the city center where you can choose from a range of restaurants as well as a beach perfect for learning how to surfe. The rooms at New Bay are great, food delicious, the service impeccable, and the staff became our friends. Leo was the best manager we could hope for and if you ask for tuktuk-driver Lahiru he will drive you to exciting places that you wouldn't have gone to otherwise (poor English is not an obstacle). Highly recommend this place!

We loved this place! The owner and staff were lovely, very friendly and always with a smile. It's a short tuktuk ride away from the center but for us it was perfect to stay a bit more secluded. Most of the time we were alone in the water on the private beach. The locals living next to the hotel greeted us with friendly smiles every day. We stayed longer than planned because we were so comfortable. The rooms facing the ocean have an amazing view. Cash only.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor facing the ocean have an amazing view

our stay at the new bay exceeded all expectation even though it was warmly recommended to us by friends whom had recently stayed. surrounded by friendly, helpful locals, beautiful red rock cliffs and overarching the magnificent ocean, the hotel is a natural gem. inside the walls of the new bay one immediately feels at home.

the food is of very high quality. we have tried high end restaurants in the area, and the bay hill kitchen by far exceeds them in taste, and at a very good price.

last but not least, the staff is the nicest ive ever experienced. leo, the manager, made the stay perfect by always helping us with everything practical and providing great ideas for what to do and places to go.

the combination of price and quality makes this hotel the best ive ever stayed at in asia.

We received a very warm welcome from the staff. They are very helpful and friendly. The room was clean and had a nice balcony. The views overlooking the bay are great. It is a very secluded beach which I love. The restaurnat is ok. We walked to the main beach which takes about 20 minuts, you can also take a tuk-tuk. I would stay here again.

We stayed two weeks in the New Bay View Villa and couldn't have picked a better place! Absolute perfect location with plenty of surf spots around, lovely beaches, most awesome views, the nicest, lovliest staff and great food. Would highly recommend this place to couples and single travellers, and we will for sure come back!
