We went to W 15 for dinner - Perfect location and atmosphere on the beach.
We were seated and attended to very promptly. The menu offered a good selection of food and drinks. The place is pricey but the service was good, prompt and attentive.

Room Tip: Did not stay at this hotel

Dear Ashok S,

Thank you so much for reviewing our beautiful boutique hotel and restaurant!

Aura Beach Club is located right on the beach of Weligama, where all surfers and families spend their holidays. We are glad that you came to our restaurant to find the right balance between a relaxed atmosphere and a luxurious service with gastronomic food. Our chef strives to select the best items of the Southern Province to deliver the most beautiful and delicious dishes of the coast.

The team at W15 is absolutely pleased to read such good reviews and would like to thank you for that.

We hope to welcome you at the hotel next time,
Best regards,
Margo

We stayed at W15 for five nights after a busy 11 day tour of Sri Lanka’s cultural triangle and the wildlife parks in the south. The hotel is splendidly situated right on the beach and offered the perfect relaxation we’d hoped for. All the facilities are really good and we should like to praise and thank Kamal and his fine team for looking after us so well, making our stay a tremendous end to a fabulous holiday in Sri Lanka.

Good boutique hotel in good condition. Awesome location on the beach. Very nice loungy bar area with a DJ, mood lighting and good music. Food is good but pricey, service often good but inconsistent. Great place for a beach dinner for the larger budget. Avoid the drinks as they are expensive and not well made; stick to beer and wine or straight mixed drinks.

Dear urbanemson,

Thank you for sharing your experience with us,

We are absolutely delighted to know that you enjoyed the convenient location of the hotel as well as our restaurant. Hosting DJs for sunsets, our Beach Club offers a very charming atmosphere and transports our guests to a loungy heavenly ambiance.

We are glad that you enjoyed our food, our chef selects the best items of the Southern Province to deliver an exquisite cuisine that matches perfectly with the exclusive view of the Indian Ocean.
All our cocktails are mixed by our talented mixologist that creates fresh-made cocktails. We are surprised that you did not enjoy our cocktails since W15 Aura Beach Club is reputed for the quality of the liquors. We are therefore glad to know that you enjoyed our qualitative wine selection.

Looking forward to welcoming you back soon,
Best wishes,

Margo

A group of us spent the day at W-15. Given how lackadaisical most places are in terms of service down south in Sri Lanka, w-15 was a breath of fresh air. Service with warmth, executed perfectly under the watchful eye of manager Andrew (who was brilliant) and done with style. The room was beautiful, the food at aura cafe yummy and delivered to our group of 16 without a single error and on time - this is a place I can't wait to return to!

Amazing locations with a beach front you could spend days. The place is great with super service and lovely food simply a place to chill, wind down.
The sea is calm, beautiful and seem to attract surfers. It is a must visit location
