Such a good place to relax and learn surfing. The staff is friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The price-performance is good as well. The complete Hotel has been recently renovated. The breakfast is ok.

We had a wonderful time here in samaru beach house. Located next to the surf point, samaru offers great rooms with great price, and the most important -great service always with a smile. When we left the place the staff was in the middle of recolouring and refixing the rooms, so there's much more to wait!

I had a bad experience learning to surf here. The surf instructor was unreliable and dishonest. He cancelled the lesson twice (one day he was hangover and the second time he got injured). It took me 2 days to get my money back. When I complained about this situation the hotel and surf staff weren't interested in helping and turned... More

My family and I came here to surf and tour South Sri Lanka . We found everything was perfect and safe for the children. The wave out fron of the hotel is perfect for beginners to intermediate surfing. Kabalana is close if you like more power in the waves. The staff are super friendly and honest so you will not...

We spent just one night and enjoyed being close to the beach watching the surfers. We had a room which was basic but more than adequate. Comfortable bed with mosquito net and fan (also a/c) and good shower. No fridge but they happily put a few bottles in the kitchen fridge for us. The fish meal was fine but there... More

Stayed here over the weekend for one night. The rooms fared much better than expected (for USD 70 per night, BB). They were spacious and clean, with a well functioning AC, and the bathrooms were clean. Not much of a view from the room but that didn't matter because the hotel itself has a great location right on the beach... More
