“Good place”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We stopped there by chance. I completely recommend this place, to be short:
well located(beach front), nice view, Brendan the owner is really friendly, the staff as well, the food is perfect … totally worth it!

There is actually not much wrong with this place. Nice bedrooms (good matresses, pillows). Beautiful location. Nice food in the beautiful located restaurant. Friendly staff. So far so good! But why do you have a laundry service if you cannot handle it? One of my trousers went missing during this service. It's a mystery where it went. The staff hasn't seen it as it was not returned back to us. These things can happen but if you dont write down the number/type of items on a 'good receipts form' of items and check only the weight, problems will occure. These forms are perfectly working in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand etc... You cannot blame the customer for this non organisation. As we were the only two guests in the hotel the trousers mystery was not solved at end and went missing. Strange! Please, stop smoking pot and drinking arrak and solve these problems properly.

We had intended to stay 3 nights but had to stay longer...everything was too perfect to leave. The hotel is sandwiched between the beach and a lagoon with mangroves (you can hire kayaks and paddle around the lagoon where you can see monkeys, monitor lizards and so many different wild birds)...a perfect location. The staff are really friendly calling you by your first name from the outset...they are super friendly and go beyond the call of duty to help in any way you need. The food was beautiful, fresh and tasty, eaten in the restaurant on the beach overlooking the sea. The hotel itself is well designed...simple and quite elegant with very comfortable beds.

When we arrived they had no record of our booking but then proposed we stay in a different room which turned out to be the best one! Up the top looking over the beach with amazing views. Beach is lovely and literally 2 seconds walk from your room, and the staff all very friendly - they even bought my friend new hair ties when she lost hers in the (quite rough at times) sea! Hammocks and loungers are all provided on a nice quiet bit of the beach. The restaurant is also pretty good!

We stayed two nights at this hotel on our trip round south Sri Lanka.

The hotel is quite new and located a few km from Tangalle town, right on the beach with a fresh ocean breeze blowing. The days we stayed at the hotel the breeze was quite strong and the sea was rough but normally swimming should be possible at this time of the year.

The hotel has a relaxed and informal atmosphere. The team running the hotel is very friendly and service minded, supporting our requests arranging transports and excursions.

The rooms are clean and spacious. Our room had no AC but thanks to the ocean breeze there is no reel need for anything other than a ceiling fan. We stayed on the second floor, there are three floors in total. I guess higher is better.

The hotel restaurant “Zanzibar” has a choice of well prepared western and Sri Lanka dishes at reasonable prices. I can recommend their traditional rice and curry. There are several hotels and restaurants in the close proximity as well. The breakfast is good.
We only stayed two nights (as planned) so we did not have time to explore the area southwest of Tangalle. During our stay we had the time to visit the Kalimetiya Bird Sanctuary (morning) and the Rock Temple (afternoon), both highly recommended. The hotel supported us in arranging transportation and guiding, the excursions met (and even exceeded) our expectations.

This hotel is a good choice if you plan to stay in the Tangalle area, spending lazy days on the beach doing nothing and/or in combination with visiting places of interest near Tangalle.

There is WiFi however the signal is too weak in the main building/rooms so in effect only the restaurant area is covered.

Room Tip: The higher, the better (view and sea breeze)

We had such a wonderful time at Harmony Beach Bungalows - after the initial surprise that these were not actually bungalows, but in fact a lovely and comfortable hotel just on the beach. I couldnt say a bad thing about the trip or stay. Our hosts couldnt do enough for us the food was fantastic fresh fish everyday and I have never been more relaxed. Strongly recommend for a relaxing beach holiday.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a sea view, but there are less mosquitos on the beach side as opposed to the lago...

My Girlfriend and me stayed at Harmony Beach Bungalows for 17 Nights.
We were warmly welcomed the very first moment we arrived. The staff was very pleasent and helpfull everytime we had questions. They also arranged and organized everything. For example: We were there on Valentine´s Day and one of the Staff Members organized a beautiful bouquet of Flowers as a wished for my Girlfriend.
When we wanted to do a roundtrip for some cultural experiance - no problem. I just asked one of the staff members and it was done. Safari, diving, anything we desired was arranged within no time and we sure had a wonderful time there!
As mentioned in the Feedbacks before, the meals are really delicious. I cannot share the same oppinion as some other people who say, that the prices are to high there. They were not high at all, as i think.

One of the nicest things at all happened on our last night. Dihan (the Owner of this Hotel) invited us to a romantic candlelight Dinner on the Beach Restaurant under the Sky with Wine (quite rare and uncommon on Sri Lanka) and let the Chef prepare Lobster for us.

With no doubt, i can warmly suggest this place to anyone who wants a nice place to stay in Sri Lanka! I would book there anytime again.
