The extended family and I stayed here for 3 nights for a friends wedding near by. The villa is clean and is of ample size for 3 families. The pool was amazing for the kids ( we had four under five between us) to cool off and if you get the timing right ( like my father in law) you can escape the sun too! The team / chef, who also reside on site, were always around to be of assistance but not in an intrusive manner , in addition to cooking delicious srilankan food. Best feature for me was the fact that it sat right on the beach so you have local fisherman offering up the indian oceans freshest treasures daily for our chef to cook in any manner we please. A wedding brought us to the region but the scenic location and friendly staff will certainly bring us back ! A big thanks to the Ranna beach team for making our stay comfortable and safe.

I stayed here with family for 3 days to relax before wedding . Great place... amazing pool and beside the sea. It's quite rough waters but has a lagoon beside it which is calmer. Food is ridiculous!!! The chef was very talented and the cost of each meal was excellent value. Fresh fish bought off the fisherman who are out on the beach every morning! The villa is pretty remote which adds to the charm. I must say the staff were absolutely superb... couldn't of been more helpful ... even helped to stitch my aunties wedding sari blouse before the big day !!!! Thank you

We spend 10 days at the end of January and bigining of February 2020 at the villa which have 3 bedrooms, a private garden and a pool. A sandy beach is just at the end of the garden, with fishermen's boats. The place and the beach are very beautiful, calm and quiet, And we saw lots of animals, it was great ! The team is very nice and helpfull, always smiling, they made everything to make us feel good and comfortable. They organized everything for us, it was perfect. Special thanks to Kumara and chef Prasad for the delicious food (srilankan breakfast and fresh fish and lobster !) We enjoyed our stay and recommend Frank and Myriam from France

We came to Sri Lanka to celebrate my cousins wedding in Hambamtota and chose this gem of a place to stay before and after the wedding. We stayed one week and we cannot say thank you enough for the wonderful stay at Fox Resort Rana Beach and making the family wedding an experience amazing. A big thank you goes to Kumara, Prasad, Chanuka and the rest of the team. They did everything to make us feel welcome and at home and assisted us with so many things. Drove us to Udawalawe national park, to the Mehendi party and even helped us with fixing a saree! The food was wonderful, better than a 5 star resort! The beach and location breathtaking and pool was wonderful. We want to come back! Thank you so much! :)

I came here after checking out early from another hotel in Tangalle where I had a terrible experience and the Ranna made up for it! I was originally looking at another place which is a couple of doors down from here which was full up hence why I booked here. You could see that other villa from the garden of the Ranna and it appeared to have more of a hotel vibe to it than this villa. Everyone was sat on the sun loungers there next to the pool close to each other whereas in the Ranna there were only 4 rooms and if there were 8 people here you could still comfortably spread out the sun loungers in the garden and have your own space. I am pleased I booked here instead of there. Location – Great! – Obviously if you are looking for a hotel here you are aware it is a remote location with a beautiful beach. In the 2 days we were here we walked a couple of kilometres up the beach West in the afternoon and East in the evening and saw just a handful of people. There are only 3 or 4 other smallish hotels down the beach either way so you are never going to run into that many people. The beach itself was clean and with some natural swimming pools close to the hotel just after the fishing boats. The sea itself though is rough though so not sure you could really swim in it comfortably. Room – Good! - The room was clean, the bed was comfortable with a mosquito net and the air conditioning worked well and there was an overhead fan. The shower was hot and there were two sinks and a bath as well. The room also came with added extra protection against the mosquitos as occasionally one of the cute little frogs from the garden would come in the room and sit on the shelf going around the room waiting for something to eat! Food – Great! – The food was really great here. For breakfast there was toast, jam, omelettes, bacon, sausages and a kind of egg on top of a pancake thing which was nice! The dinners though were really great! I recommend the mixed rice and the fish. We asked them to get us some tuna and they cooked a really nice tuna dinner along with the rice which was one of the best meals I have had in Sri Lanka. The chocolate mousse was good as well. Rest of the hotel – Good! - The hotel had a pool but did not use it and as per the original comment in the intro the hotel had a decent sized garden you could sit in on the sun loungers. There were enough trees around as well that you could find shade to put them under. Staff – Great – The two guys running the place, Prasad and Chanuka, were nice guys who were always smiling and happy to take your orders for variations from the menu for dinner and breakfast. I didn’t ask them to help with anything else but they seemed very accommodating and I’m sure they would have been happy to help out with any queries or requests I might have had.
