As we were staying in many budget accommodations during our trip, we wanted to give us a treat with this seemingly nice hotel in Talalla. I have to say, many of the budget ones were better than this. 1. - the atmosphere . The hotel is run by 3 sisters. They all seem to treat their staff very rough. Everyday...

We spent 2 nights here in a bungalow and really enjoyed it, nice and relaxing with friendly staff, beautiful gardens and great location next to the beach. The Sri Lankan breakfast is amazing, don't forget to order the night before! We will definitely be back!

After a long trip from Adam's Peak we were welcomed quite strange. Apart from the fact that we had to carry all our...

We've spent four days in this hotel and we were almost the only guests there. Unfortunately, 250 Euro got stolen from our valuables, although the hotel is equipped with a video camera system and writes explicitly that there is only one key, which we had with us. After we have confronted the manager (woman) with the fact nothing came out...

I could not sleep all night with the chatting monk on the speaker. How can the bring good luck to a place it they don let you sleep. Seriously? Stay away from this place. Go next door instead to Talalla Beach Retreat best kept secret in Sri Lanka

We got relocated from another hotel to Secret Bay Hotel - what an upgrade! Small hotel with unique location just 20 meters from the beautiful Talalla Beach. Great people, great food, decent standard of rooms and unique location!

My second visit to this beautiful hotel was happened last month with my family [two kids 8 years and 2 years]. I was surprised to see the improvement of their garden and room's interior.
