Plantations is orientated towards surfers and it is perfectly located for surfing at Rams Right or Lazy Left at Midigama. This family-run guesthouse is friendly and well-suited to the budget traveller.

The place has a great family vibe, Chatu, the host is friendly, helpful, he does not rip people off (like other establishment owners in Midigama..... you have been warned) and takes care of everything the travelling surfer may need. The location is incredible so close to the best spots.
I would have to recomend this place above all the rest in the village and trust me when I say that over the years I have stayed at them all. Well done Chatu, you have set the accomadation standard for all others to try and best!!!!
I will be coming back again soon.

Lovely quit place just off the noise from the road. just a couple of meters walk from some of the best waves in the region. If you are a surfer be sure to check this one out. Chathura and his family will definitely take good care of you, and the food they prepare is the best. Top budget guesthouse where you can easily spend weeks!

Great quiet place where Chathura and the whole family give you a warm welcoming...Perfect food,beautiful garden to chill out.Rooms are basic but clean and equipped ( fan + mosquito net)and makes it a great value...The surf is just in front...walk 50m and you are on the beach.

Plantation surf inn is exactly what we were looking for when wanting to stay in Sri Lanka. Chathura and his family looked after us 100% of the time we were there (3 weeks). The food was exceptional and prepared and served every breakfast, lunch & supper to perfection. With the location being off the main road the noise was less than the other guest houses in the area. The beach is absolutely stunning with snorkelling being safe with the reefs further out protecting the inner rocks. The outer reefs and various breaks providing excellent surf for both beginners and experienced surfers. Also being more quiet than other beaches in Sri Lanka the time spent on the beach is peaceful and hassle free. I would highly recommend plantation surf inn to any one wanting a quiet, fully pampered relaxing break, for an incredibly low price.
