This place is a complete relax. No rush here at all. Private beach with no tourists. The garden is quite large with 3 or 4 bungalows randomly deployed. In the center part of the garden the restaurant is located. Because the "Italian Management" was not present at the time we were here, all services took their time. But we did not care so much, because we were on vacation right? Rush we have enough at work.
So chill out and enjoy to be away from ordinary life. And yes, if you are looking for perfect services on time, go to some 4* hotel (and I suppose still will be hard to find in Sri Lanka though). This place is then not for you.
The only thing that should be fixed is missing mosquito net above the bed.
And the dogs were really suffering when Manuella was not there!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Surya Garden in Tangalle is a charming, small resort right on an unspoiled and deserted feeling beach in a secluded bay a short distance from Tangalle center with western management. The three private bungalows and spacious suite style mud house, open-air restaurant, as well as other facilities are hidden in the large and carefully maintained tropical garden. The three spacious bungalows for 1 to 2 persons are each very special in their own unique design and character. They are simple, but decorated with taste and love. All bungalows have large open-air bathrooms, fan, mosquito nets and private veranda. The larger beach-side mud house is perfect for families or larger groups to enjoy a large bedroom that sleeps 4, large private bathroom, and personal outdoor sitting and dining area just steps from the ocean. The Surya Garden restaurant is known for its internationally inspired beach cuisine, ranging from perfect fish, chicken or vegetable curries up to fresh pasta and world bbq created by an American 5-star chef who has traveled the world in search of the best dishes to offer. Also available is crafted island classic cocktails and your favorite local beers in a calm, unfussed atmosphere that invites pure relaxation and checking out from the hurry of life. The extensive garden just in the front of the large sandy beach offers not only enough space for the enjoyment of the tropical flowers and trees, butterflies and birds but also places for relaxing Ayurvedic treatments, massage, and yoga. Surya Garden is well secluded but also well connected to the town of Tangalle that is just few kilometers away by onsite private driver to explore the town and then retreat to your personal beach oasis. The surroundings are quiet and ideal for enjoying nature and the unique spirit and beauty of the southern Sri Lankan shores. Surya Garden is only about 240 km from Sri Lanka's international airport and 220 km from Colombo. With the opening of the new highway Colombo-Galle it is thus easy to reach the place within few hours. The resort is a perfect base to explore the south of Sri Lanka: watching whales in Mirissa, elephants in Uda Walawe, birds in Bundala, leopards in Yala or deep tropical rainforests in Sinharaja. All within a few hours distance from there and can be arrange by our onsite tour concierge. ... more less
