Delighted from the moment we arrived. An elegant, charming and functional space that does its job in framing the stunning beach front view. Proof that boutique brutalism can work (if done right) even in the middle of the jungle. The entire team are trained far above the level of service typically experienced in Southern Sri Lanka. A great menu, wonderful coffee and breakfast bar. One of the best spots for an evening cocktail as the Sandhya has put together a unique list of original cocktails, curated with natural local ingredients in mind. The Sandhya is a peaceful, and stylish get away that will have you wanting to extend.

This is our second visit to The Sandhya and it didn't disappoint. This hotel is utterly amazing, beautifully presented and has fabulous staff. Positioned right on the beach you enjoy a view of the ocean all day, whilst the ebb and flow of the waves gently rock you to sleep at night. The food is wonderful and the staff very attentive without being intrusive. In particular, would like to mention Naveen who took care of our every need. The decor in the hotel is to die for. A contemporary stylish hotel that is a must to stay in. We will be back.

From start to finish this hotel has been absolutely incredible. We leave tomorrow and we don’t want to go!! Before we arrived we had a few communications with the hotel as we needed to check if we could arrange a PCR test as this was our last hotel of our trip before flying home. They always replied so quickly and were of such great help. I would say the most helpful hotel we’ve ever stayed in! When we arrived we were taken to our room and they had put out lovely balloons for our honeymoon and my husband had surprised me with some prosecco and flowers which was so lovely that he arranged with the hotel. The rooms are beautiful, so spacious and stylish and on the last few nights they even upgraded us to the best room as it was our honeymoon. They also supply great toiletries in the rooms with added mosquito balm from a local Sri Lankan supplier than was great and very helpful. The help with our fit to fly PCR tests back to the uk was organised so easily that we didn’t need to worry at all and we also organised a taxi for a day trip which they even managed to get discount for us on. The hotel is stunning with beautiful furniture throughout. An amazing location right on a stunning beach. The food was great, as we were here for 6 nights we tried a lot of it and it was all delicious. The service is outstanding, everyone is so kind and generous and they make you feel so welcome throughout. I could go on for days about how much we have enjoyed our stay here! Thank you Sandhya for the most amazing end to our honeymoon! We hope to be back to this beautiful country and your beautiful hotel again some day!

This place is absolutely breathtaking and exceeded all our expectations! We spent 6 days traveling in Sri Lanka and enjoyed our last 5 days at this beautiful boutique hotel. The staff is incredibly kind, competent, professional and always went the extra mile to make our stay perfect! The rooms are very clean and stylish! The food is delicious and we also enjoyed taking our first surfing lesson from the surf school next by. It is definitely a place to recommend if you want to enjoy the endless view of the Indian Ocean and relax with a great cocktail during sunset. We can't wait to come back to The Sandhya for a longer stay, enjoy the tranquility and learn how to surf better :) Thank you Sandhya-Team for these beautiful few days!
