We had a really lovely meal on the beach with such a beautiful setting. They were so friendly. My husband had an amazing massage in the afternoon too. We were staying at the Kalutara Beach Hotel which is literally next door.

Family run business where we were made to feel very welcome. Had an evening supper right on the beach with a campfire, just for us. Prawns were delicious.

The restaurant people are friendly and welcoming. Also i had an amazing massage done which was very relaxing. The bamboo shack is out of this... More

Beautiful location in a tranquil cove, the owners are welcoming and accommodating, nothing is too much trouble at all. As well as the restaurant there is the massage centre, considerably better value than the hotels price and really focused as you desire. A must visit.

Thank Stuart W
