We pre booked 4 nights at the simple beach cabanas for 50€ a night.
The place is wonderful set, right by the beach, surrounded by palm trees and hammocks, we felt like Robinson Crusoe.

We decided to change our plans and skip 2 nights. We did not accept a refund for the 2 nights, but without a question the management gave us the money back!
Wow, what a great service.

Breakfast by the beach was great, and the staff very kind and helpful.

Thank you BEACH CABANAS!

The cabanas are a great place for relaxing and just enjoying a piece of almost empty tropical beach. The sea is too rough for swimming, but luckily there's a natural pool close by. It's also possible to use kayaks for free in order to explore the lagoon. Nice! Staff and food is also top notch :-)

We stayed in the Mangrove Cabana for 3 nights and it exceeded expectations. It was the perfect way to finish our fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka. It is incredibly chilled out, quiet and we often felt like we had the run of the place and the beach to ourselves. The food was great and the service was fantastic although unobtrusive. A lot more low key than Unawatuna and Mirissa with less people and more space. The Cabanas are lovely- simple but spacious and clean. They have the recipe right here.

We were 2 families staying in 2 chalets for 6 nights around Christmas. The service was very good, the chalet confortable. Being in a quiet place just on the beach is really great. The restaurant provides good food. We were with our driver that was provided with bed and food for free.

Why not 5 stars? Well, we were unlucky with the weather, with rain for 36 hoirs non stop, and 3 days without sun. So when hot water works only with sun, that was a little problem for us travelling with 5 kids. I know the situation was exceptional, but with very humid weather and in absence of back-up like gas boiler, the staff should have been more proactive by giving hot water from the kitchen, what we received after asking 3 times. Again, exceptional situation, so comprehensible. We received discount at the restaurant to compensate that problem.

Do not forget anti-mosquito!

Wifi is free, but only available from the restaurant or the reception.
