This property is the most idyllic beach stay. It feels like being on an island of Coconut Palms. Meals are at the Beach Shack under the palms. The staff are great cooks and the drinks (juices, milkshakes, cocktails) and meals are fantastic. The beach chalets are cleverly designed from polished concrete and wood. Even the bed bases are concrete. The...

This is an absolutely amazing location. The beach is superb. The chalets are lovely but the staff, mostly young lads, who run the beach cafe are the worst we have ever come across. Because of the location of the chalets, a few kilometeres out of Tangalla, the options for eating out are very very limited. This means having to eat...

We had red some excellent reviews of the food at the mangrove beach so decided to give it a try. We are staying the Good Karma retreat on Rakawa beach so it was about a 20 min tuk tuk ride to the resultant. The roads to/ from both the mangrove beach cabanas and the good karma are pretty basic and...

The best cabanas we stayed in Asia. You feel like you have the beach to yourself. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The food is also good. I would recommend renting a scooter if staying here as it allows you to explore the area

It's basic. It's on the beach. It's beautiful. This place is paradise. The rooms are open to the elements. Only a mosquito net keeps the bugs away. A glorious warm southerly breeze blows all day. This is barefoot luxury at a bargain price. You open the door of your room and go straight onto the beach. The rooms are clean....

We found Paradise. That was the feeling that overwhelmed me when we arrived. We went there for dinner, but we went immediately to the reception and asked for a room. We were lucky. We could get a villa and then a cabana. We stayed for 7 days in total. The staff is amazing, the view is even better. It is...

We didn't stay here but might do in the future. We stayed next door but ate here every night for 4 nights. The food was brilliant the best we are in Sri Lanka. The atmosphere was perfect, very relaxed, comfy seats and non-intrusive music. I highly recommend eating here or just calling in for a drink if you are staying...

We had a very good lunch with calamari and soup for a reasonable price. Excellent location on the beach, great view and comfortable chairs. It would have been 5 stars, but I had a small issue with flies on the honey of the dessert. However a very kind waiter promptly changed it for me.

WoW it's beautiful here, really amazing. In front of the chalets (only 50 meters away from the ocean) there is a 'natural' pool. So it's very safe to swim for childeren. The staff is realy nice and helpfull, especially at the beach bar where they serve (amazing) breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks! The Chalets are a bit dark inside, but...
