My Wife & 2 daughters stayed for 4 days after the Sinhala New Year in 2014 at Thenu's Rest. It is very safe with the Police barracks on one side & the Military protecting the Dutch hospital in front of it. The panoramic view from Thenu's is stunning all day around with the ramparts & the light house a stones throw away. The little beach which is approx 100 meters away is guarded by a coral reef. We were greeted by Preethi , Chamari , their children & staff & made to feel at home. We felt a home away from home & my daughters fell in love with the place. Blackie the little Dachshund was an added bonus to my daughters who love dogs. The food was great & the room we stayed in was clean. The ban on Alcohol in the Galle Fort was most welcome as I am a Teetotaller.
The local taxis are known to this place & have had no problem even travelling in the night. It cost only Rs. 100/= ( approx 00.80 US$ cents ) from the railway station / Central Bus stand to Thenu's rest.
Unawatuna, Rumassala are accessible under 15 minutes from here.
Preethi is full of helpful tips to make yr stay enjoyable & worthwhile.
Chamari has proved her culinary expertise beyond any doubt.
At the price offered by them it almost free compared to other places. They believe in Service more than a business.
I have already planed on my next visit to Thenu's rest.
I strongly recommend this little place as it is cozy & warm for a family.
