At first I didn't want to write a review of this hotel since it might lead to me having trouble to get a room next time in Sri Lanka. This hotel is run by Harry and his wife. It is very close to the beach (a very nice beach) and they have a nice pool. The staff is extremely friendly...

When we arrived in Sri Lanka and before leaving home we stayed there. Best decision ever... It made our stay in the country so much more pleasant. Paradies @ Paradies + Pool, great food, perfect host's and family - Little far off everything (15 minutes walk at least)

Harry, his wife and the other staff were so welcoming and we really loved our 3 night stay here in a well appointed family cabana. Beautiful gardens and fantastic home cooked food. Beach right next door but it is an undeveloped coast line so beach is litter strewn and due to steep shelving one can only swim safely right next...

We spent 9 wonderful days in Sri Lanka and these lovely people, Harry and his wife Chamali (the owners of the hotel) helped us a lot. It is a perfect place for a calm vacation. We wanted to spend time without civilazation, so we took a room without a TV and enjoyed watching stars every evening. Though there is a...

This place is paradise. Harry and his wife Chamali run a beautiful set up right by the sea. The food is exquisite - mountains of fresh lobster and prawns and excellent traditional Sri Lankan breakfast every morning. Chamali and Harry are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The beach is very close, seconds away, but you can also...

We started our family holidays in Sri Lanka at Bridden's place. Harry welcomed us in person at 4 in the morning with a nice smile. The place is close by the airport and located in a isolated fisherman village where you can see the real srilankan daily life, far from major toutist attractions. We stayed 3 full days and loved...

Dutchman Harry Bridden has build this little paradise with his charming singhalese wife, Chamali, in a rather underdeveloped area just north of the airport and the more visited Negombo. It is a perfect starting (or ending) point for a round trip to Sri Lanka. Harry can organise a driver to pick you up at the airport (4,000 lkr) and can...
