A beautiful stay with great hosts!
We arrived to this hotel quite late in the night with family and a private driver. We were only staying for 1 night and were planning to leave straight after breakfast the next day. Staff were extremely friendly and warm and met us with big smiles. Accommodation as well as breakfast for our driver was provided free of charge. Shortly after we got into our rooms, we were welcomed with fresh flower garlands and freshly squeezed juices in our room. We were a bit surprised when we heard the knock on the door but it was a nice surprise! The rooms were very clean, neat and tidy and had everything we could need. I was very happy to see the mosquito nets draped around the beds! Had a comfortable night sleep. The food in the morning was very tasty and varied- with traditional Sri Lankan foods as well as fresh fruits. The location of the hotel was also amazing- very scenic and you can hear sounds of the sea. The owner was wonderful. We were quite sad to learn about the death of his 2 sons from drowning a few years ago in the sea (whilst their father tried to save them). Pictures of them are seen in the dining area. We were amazed at his resilience and positivity to continue on with a big smile. Sadly we had already visited a turtle conservation area the day before and also did not have enough time to see the nearby one. Perhaps next time we will try to do this! We were very happy with our stay and will definitely return if we visit Tangalle again!
