The Thumbelina Apartments in Aluthgama, Sri Lanka offer you 5 luxury apartments with all facilities overlooking the Bentota river yet only a stone's throw away from the wonderful white sandy beaches. Each apartment sleeps up to two people and has a kitchen (with crockery and cutlery), bedroom and bathroom with hot water and A/C. Free wi-fi is available in all the apartments. A washing machine and ironing facilities are available communally. The adjoining Nebula Garden Restaurant, also known as Pier 88, offers a tantalising riverside dining experience where you can dine in the open air garden by the water or inside the restaurant at the entrance. The restaurant specialises in sea food but offers many other dishes too. Or you can simply have a drink and use the free wi-fi. Underneath the apartments there is a supermarket which stocks everything but is famous all over Sri Lanka for stocking European products that are difficult to find elsewhere on the island, such as German pate, Dutch mayonnaise, Collmans mustard from the UK and countless other things you may miss on your stay in Sri Lanka. Boat trips are available from the premises to see the magical Bentota river, complete with its mangroves, crocodiles, water monitors, age-old fishermen on their catamarans, ancient temples and much much more. Watersports are available on site too.

My family decided to stay in a ace closer to the lake near Bentota. So we found this place very nice place but little hidden. It's on theain road towards Aluthgama very nice apartment. We stayed there for o my one day. But the experience was really good. Very nice staff friendly

Don't be put off by the haphazard process of confirming your booking and the appearance from the road. These are the best apartments in the area and make a great base for exploring the beaches and the local town.

Great room with great views. Restaurant down stairs is more than worth going to. Recommend you stay and visit. From there you can do a river cruise and handle a live croc, visit a coconut plantation and ride among the mangroves.

"Ask for room with river view 1st floor"
"Go into the mini mart to check in."
"There are three rooms on the first floor, all have balcony facing to the Bentota River but the second floor gets a better river view. I think room no. 3 is the best, with a small open kitchen attached. There are 4 rooms on the second floor, only one room facing to the road."
"One apartment has a street view but it is larger and might sit a business traveller."
