Rooms are of a reasonable size and were clean.The secluded beach is the best feature of this hotel. There are beach umbrellas you can borrow. As it is in...

We traveled in a group and booked A/C rooms, no A/C at all some fans were not working. Dinner was terrible, we ordered BBQ dinner but gave us grilled fish and fried prawns and fried chicken with lot of spices, but charged BBQ price,couldn't eat. Very poor service.

Accommodation suited to young backpackers who are on a budget. Hard to communicate in English. Lovely pristine beach. Great clean swimming in July , no people. Great to see the fishermen come in with their catch in the morning. You need a car to get to town.

Set right by Kalkkudah Beach, it is one of the very few hotels fronting the ocean. We stayed here for two nights and absolutely loved the deserted beach! We were the only one for kilometers around! The hotel itself is quite basic, but they do have a restaurant with affordable prices. The owner was very kind and helpful too. :)

We booked via online and were greeted by the owners of the resort upon arrival. It was far from the city center and the nearest restaurant or shops is around 1 or 2 kilometers away. Kalkudah Beach is just 2 minutes away and the wide stretch of the shore was lovely. Our room was basic with fan and ensuite toilet...

We stayed 3 nights at Nirma shadow inn and wished we could have stayed longer. After 2 days in disapointing Trincomalee, Kalkudah was just the perfect place for us. The beach was absolutly stunning with no one to be seen for kms around, only cows and crabs! Try waking up early and walking along the beach til you meet the...

We spent 4 nights in Nirma Shadow, rooms were ok, we don´t mind ants and frogs in the room, but we had to fight with mosqitos very hard. We asked for net, but it was small size and mosqitos always find the way in. The beach is wide and long, occupied by local fisherman only, it is cool. Hotel offers...
