My girlfriend and I got a fantastic massage here. We didn't stay but it didn't matter, 1 hr full body massage for 3,000 Rs. Would highly recommend! The lady who runs it is a charismatic person who does the massages and they certainly don't disappoint.

The location is good being right by the beach, but we booked 2 rooms at 2000LKR each and when it came to payment Priti said that as one room was large the cost would be increased to 2500LKR. We paid but felt that she should have told us upon arrival if the room price confirmed had increased. Also, the food... More

Firstly the internet was not working, staff said the internet guy will came and fix it but no one showed up amd of course Internet didn't work. We didn't mind it as much. But cockroachs and ants ... we did! The worst was that there was a big spider (15cm at least) who was laying eggs in our bathroom. It... More

Great location - quiet place, just by the ocean, 10 minutes from center. The manager (owner) is very friendly, caring person, excellent cook, doesn´t force you to buy any goods or services (which is elsewhere at Sri Lanka quite common). She doesn´t have any contract with tuk-tuk drivers, they have no commission here, that´s why some of them they don´t... More

I stayed in Kingfisher while I was in Tangalle. Beach was just next to rooms and area was quiet. If you want a simple and cheap accommodation next to the beach, go to Pretty's rooms. The owner Pretty, so adorable, friendly and warm woman who will make your stay really comfortable. She gives really nice massage also, she has "healing"... More

My wife and I ate dinner the other nite at Kfishers. It was very good. We had a craving for Thai and ordered the green curry prawns and the red curry yellow fin. They were both outstanding. We also ordered the avocado salad which was very good....lettuce, tomato, and lots of slices of avocado. The prices are a bit more... More

I haven't been staying at the Kingfisher guest house, but I have discovered, that they have very nice, always smiling and more languages speaking female owner. Priyanthi is also giving massage and her 30 minutes neck and shoulder and back massage was a great start of day.

The place has a very friendly owner and is a good location right on the beach. Unfortunately the room we stayed had a very low working fan, for that reason it was very hot and we didn´t sleep very comfortable. The food we had was not bad, but nothing special. To us it seemed a little bit overpriced. Also the... More
