Located close to a quiet stretch of beach in Kirinda boulders is good for a group getaway. There is a single AC room with TV and attached toilet downstairs which I did not use but upstairs has bunks for a group and is open all around. Pick a windy season to go an it's very comfortable. Great for relaxing, card... More

One THE best holiday bungalows I have ever stayed at. I travel fairly regularly within Sri Lanka and Boulders exceeded my expectations by a fair bit. Extremely clean, fantastic staff & food, clean bathrooms & toilets, comfy beds and very well designed architecturally.

Loved everything about Boulders. Great staff, super chef and the whole set up;clean and simple. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. Everything was so conveniently situated with great attention paid to details. For instance, every bedside had a socket and it's bedside light doing away with the hassle of each one charging their phones in turn. Good job Boulders!

My family chose this bungalow when ever they think of going to Yala. We have stayed at 5* 4* hotels and resorts everywhere in Sri Lanka but I should say this charming bungalow gives the real family holiday experience.

We stayed there for one night. The staff was very polite and helpful. They have a chef so we can take groceries and he prepares them very well.
