The rooms are very rustic but charming. We had quiet and fresh nights, the shower was perfectly working and there were not too many bugs. But the breakfast is one of the worst we had. Service slow and not particularly nice, bread was dry, coffee almost hot brown water with no taste. Don't take the breakfast option and go look...

+ Cabana was good, nice bed and clean. + Just in front of the beach + Very friendly and helpful owner + Quiet place to stay, nice location + Extremely delicious rice and curry Two points for improvement: better WiFi and the quality of the hammocks and beachbeds.. They are old and need a fix.

Me and my friend stayed there for two nights and we loved it. The beach is almost empty, although you couldnt swim because of the strong waves. Cabanas are clean and lovely, especially ones with sea view. Location is right next to the sea, breakfast is served on the terrace looking over the waves.

So my boyfriend and I were traveling in Sri Lanka, and instead of moving new somewhere every day we were hoping to find a little gem we could stay at for a week or two. Well this was absolutely the place. First the location is great, its just outside of the busier area, but a small walk or tuk tuk...

We booked the hotel a few weeks in advance. We read that it was a nice cosy place..plus it was situated right on the beach-so we thought that paying 80 eur/night would be OK. I would like to say that I would be very satisfied with the place if we paid 25 €/night. But for 80 I would want more....
