I spend a week at the Green Rooms to do a surf camp. The place is lovely, directly situated at the beach. Heaps of different boards to chose from and plenty of cosy sun loungers to chill on after surfing. A trip to Weligama center costs about 200 Rupees. But its amazing how busy surfing and chillaxing can keep you....

Stop looking for other places and stay here. AJ and the dudes that work there are absolutely awesome, the vibe is relaxed and no frills and if that's what you are looking for then look no further. You are treated like a local and the cabanas are right on the beach which means you get great access to the surf!

Spent 5 wonderful days at the Green Rooms. The location for surfing is perfect at this time of year, so that my boys could easily go out and have their surf lessons, and my husband and I could bring out our SUPs and go paddling/surfing with not much hassle. The property is located right by the beach and our cabana...

My hubby and I only planned to stay here for 3 nights but ended up staying our entire duration of our 6 nights in Sri Lanka.

The Green Rooms was a fantastic place to spend the majority of our holiday and we'd have undoubtedly stayed longer given the chance. Starting and ending the day with a surf lesson was brilliant, with plenty of time to relax and explore in the middle. We had so much local insight from the team who were always ready to help...

The Green Rooms has a great atmosphere and good vibes and you'll leave here knowing you've made new friends. It's very easy to mingle with other guests and the staff are very friendly and happy to help in any way. The waves are right outside your doorstep and they are great for all levels of surfing.
