I was the first guest lucky enough to stay at Chatura's place. The highlight has to be his dad's cooking, he used to be the chef at one of the 5* hotels in Colombo). Also, it's set back from the highway so you don't get the traffic noise that affects the beachfront places. The places on the beach have the view of the waves, but really if you want to see if the swell is good you just walk down the treed lane and you are there in a minute, but without the full surfer scene and the noise of the road.
Chatura has a big smile and goes out of his way to welcome and make things right, unlike a few other places I stayed. If it hasn't changed, look for the surfboard sign next to the highway about 200 meters south or the much more expensive and sceney Ram's.
Would love to go back!
