In total spent more than 2 weeks at Ocean Tribe as I had to come back for the second time. Once you enter OT, a feeling of private paradise and community will overwhelm you. Situated not even a 1 min walk from the beach and main road, OT gives you the best of both worlds, calm, peaceful, and quiet surroundings while bustling streets are just a minute away. Surf Camp was great, everything has been running smoothly and there were no issues with it. Small 2-3 person groups ensure you will have the attention you need (Thank you Simba ❤️). Great character and even better surf teacher. Food & Milan's coffee is one of the best ones I had during my 2-month stay in Sri Lanka. Becky still has to practice a bit more in order to reach Milan's level of excellence 😉. A Smoothie Bowl and Avocado Toast were my go-to breakfast, you can't go wrong with them. Every night we had dinners together which made sure to create a friendly/family atmosphere. Facilities are the best I saw in Sri Lanka and the most Western out of any. A big bed that can suit 3 people for sure. Another big and important aspect was to work remotely. I have managed to do work in the room, on the porch, and in the cafe. Plenty of opportunities where you can have the privacy or coworking space atmosphere, depending on which one you prefer. For sure Milan and Becky will make you feel at home. Thank you for everything and hope to see you next year!

This was my 2nd visit and stay with Ocean Tribe, it’s an absolutely a magical place. So calm and peaceful. The crew is very friendly and helpful. I’ve been traveling as an annual surfer and the instructors are entirely great. They understand your skill level based on your first few sessions and gets you progress further. The whole experience is adventurous. I never wanted to leave, and hands down the best place in town. The food is amazing. It’s so yummy and healthier too, personal favorite: Avocado Toast (Fried Egg) 😉 I’m sure, everyone who visit this place, they will have their own unique happy memories. I will be back soon 🥹

I was in Sri Lanka for two months and immediately became a loyal customer of Ocean Tribe! Although I didn't sleep there (definitely gonna stay there once I'm back) but only visited the restaurant I have heard only good things about it and the accommodation looks extremely nice. Ocean Tribe has a relaxed vibe and I always felt good after leaving. But let’s not forget the food: It is suuuper tasty and healthy! Every dish is delicious in its own way. My personal favourite: The smoothie bowl and iced americano haha! ;-) Also the staff is very friendly and always ready to help you. Special thanks to the owner Milan with whom I had such interesting and lovely conversations all the time! The whole space there is so beautiful and I'm really excited to see what's coming next! Thanks a lot for the good times, take care and see you soooon! :-)

I started my journey through Sri Lanka @Ocean Tribe and came back 2 more times during my 5 weeks in Sri Lanka because it is the best place ever!! The atmosphere is very calm and relaxing but you can still meet other people there and have fun together. The food is delicious! It is a about 15min walk on the beach to the surf spot in front of the Marriott Hotel in Weligama, but you can also take a TuTuk that will take you there within 1 min. I worked remotely from Sri Lanka and Ocean Tribe provided me with the best internet connection and a lot of iced coffees and brownies all day long ;-) Milan & his german girlfriend Becky, as well as the whole team, are the best and helped me with every question, issue or spontaneous hunger that i got during my stay and also afterwards. I will be back for sure <3

Clean, air conditioning and warm water plus great hospitality from Milan (the owner) and Becky. Very close to the beach and the main road, yet quite. They also have a place to store surfboards if you happen to bring yours. They also serve excellent juices (ask for the Itamar special, which is actually a Lior special).

I highly recommend the OCEAN TRIBE - it’s a great chilled relaxing place with the best coffee in Weligama (maybe Sri Lanka). The warm welcome and friendly hosts, Becky and Milan take care of everything. The entire stuff is amazing. They offer surf lessons, there are a bunch of Surfboards you can rent, they know where the party’s are or where you find a relaxing massage. The place is quite new, the rooms are big with A/C and big private bathroom - the whole place is very clean. The open bar at the entrance is very nice to chill with coffee, beer, also the food is very good and fresh.

A small green paradise, tucked away from the busy main street but still just a short walking distance from the Weligama beach surfbreak. Not only can you have the best coffee in town or grab something equally as nice to eat from the onsite cafe/restaurant but also the rooms are modern, spacious and equipped with powerful AC. The true highlight of this place is however the kindest owner and his beautiful vision of the place. He can literally help you with anything and will take care of you. I stayed here for a month and could've stayed another. I had absolutely the best time with my lovely German neighbours haha. Can't wait to come back and see how this place turns out to be !

The Ocean Tribe crew made my stay unforgettable! They are super friendly, caring and make you feel at home. Super close to the ocean and many restaurants. The rooms are spacious, clean and the bathroom is incredible with their rain showers! The food is amazing and they have a waterfilter to refill your water bottle. Definitely will come back again in the future, maybe for a longer period as a digital nomad;). Thanks again Ocean Tribe! I'll miss your freshly made coffees and kindness, see you soon!
