Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My friend and me booked fir 2 nights but had to extend for one more week. We had a super nice stay in this guesthouse... It is located directly next to the beach.. It is a place to relax and to come back down on earth. Harshan is a super friendly and attentive host. He let us ride his scooter if we needed aomething from the shop... If you don't have a license you are able to rent some bikes! All in all we were very lucky that we chose this place!

I liked everything about it. It's a perfect spot to relax after visiting busy cities around the country. The host, Harshan, is such a gentleman. He's very friendly and works really hard to make sure all the guests are happy. The place is super chill, with a nice outdoor shower and great views from where you can enjoy the sunset. I could stay here for days...

The two hosts Harshan and Bernard are not only two amazing souls but also will make you feel like you are part of the family while respecting your privacy as well. The simple life in the cabanas will give you the privacy you are seeking for while the common area offers enough space to relax and socialise with the other people that are staying at araliya villa. You can always reach out even after your stay to the two in case you need any help or just want to stay in touch. I could not recommend a stay at araliya villa more!

What a special place it is here. Come here for rest. For swimming, For a kitesurfing course. Borrow bicycles for free to explore the area. We stayed 2 days longer but really have to move on. Cozy cottages. A good mattress. The owner Harshan a man with a golden hearth, does everything to make you happy. Mother and aunt are magicians in the kitchen and love to make the most delicious dishes for you for very little money. Great curries but also other Sri Lankan dishes or if you wish European dishes, which are always surprisingly tasty. Coffee tea and water as much as you want. For little money. A place to linger!

The mum, who is adorable, will always make you feel at home with a bright smile:)! I would definitely recommend this place!! (Tip: own vehicle is nice to have here, to go wherever, whenever)

The loveliest guest house in Kalpitiya!
Little bungalows well displayed around a big patio with an outdoor gym. Homemade by the owner, it has enough machines and weights for you to work out. The owner, a professional gym instructor will be happy to give you advice and maybe run a session with you.
Everything is well decorated and nicely thought.
The family who owns it is the best and they will do everything they can to make your stay as pleasant as possible.
Highly recommended!

The super friendly owner and staff make you feel at home and at ease. They are always available and willing to help. There are big rooms with a comfortable bed, mosquito net, and a private bathroom. Besides, there is a vast green garden to chill on hammocks and enjoy the wind. Also, there are chairs and tables outside your door to relax and drink something. We had a really memorable stay here and highly recommend this place.

Upon arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the owner and his extremely friendly and attentive staff. The room was at a great standard, clean and comfortable. The food was, also, outstandingly delicious. Such a special atmosphere that it felt like home to us.
The location is excellent too, right in the middle of where you want to be. I truly enjoyed walking through the village. The scenery was beautiful and it was a relief to walk in such a quiet and peaceful environment.
We had a long stay there, which added up to our experience. The owner and staff deserve special thanks for doing this great job here.
