Eva Lanka Hotel

Reviewed 27 November 2013

After travelling around Sri Lanka for 20 days we finally had a few days to relax in Tangalle. Eva Lanka's rooms were exactly how we expected from the images however the location of our room was beyong expected. Our room was on one of the highest points and had direct ocean view. From our balcony all we saw was trees, flowers and sea, no other rooms or guests. It seemed as if we were the only ones there. Eva Lanka has a big pool however it seemed a little deserted. The entertainment area had a little bar, ping pong tables, TV and various board games. The restaurant had a nice selection of food and the waiting staff was very friendly. during the day we rented one of the scooters and drove around the area to explore Tangalle. The breakfast was nice but not exceptional, you get a nice plate of fresh fruits, a juice of the day, eggs to order, coffee or tea and some bread with jam and butter. The beach below the resort seems almost untouched and it was very nice to go for a walk. There is a little local hut with surfer dudes who also offer lunch and dinner but beware, they are not part of the hotel and they ripped us off a lot. We went for dinner there on the first night as it seemed very romantic though it was just too dark. They do not have a menu, you just tell them what you like and they prepare it. So we had beef, some salad and a beer. They charged a lot and asked us to come back the next day. As the flavours were good we decided to come for lunch. This time they made pork for us and added some rice as they didn't serve it for dinner. they charged almost double for a lunch so after that we obviously did not go back. instead we enjoyed the food at the hotel. We really had a great experience and if you want to relax and be alone this is the perfect place to be.

Room Tip: Rooms higher up the hill are more private and have beautiful sea view

We have stayed at some beautiful resorts around the world and this is now our new favorite! The landscaping and gardens on the property are beautiful and well groomed! The plumeria and the other tropical flowers perfumed the air as we strolled the pathways throughout the resort! The staff is EXCEPTIONAL...VERY friendly, helpful and knowledgeable...always greeting us with kindness and a smile. They went out of their way to meet our needs. The rooms were large, very clean and comfortable. We slept exceptionally well as the sound of the ocean lulled us to sleep~ The staff arranged beautiful arrangements of tropical flowers on our beds daily...so special! We could go on and on about how wonderful our stay was...WE LOVE EVA LANKA!!!

Room Tip: We love room 6...walking through a canopy of hibiscus to get to our secluded room with beautiful vie...

Our family travels all over the world regularly and Eva Lanka is our favorite place to stay. We have brought both of our parents here because we love it so much. From the beautiful lay out of the property, the 2 amazing salt water pools, the surrounding garden which is comparable to expensive botanical gardens, to the views, to the staff, it is absolutely breathtaking . From the owners all the way down to the gardeners we are always treated like king and queens. It is obvious this hotel has great leadership because the staff really takes ownership in what they do. The views are beautiful, the beaches are clean, empty, and full of sea shells. The Surfing is great and uncrowded and all the services the hotel provides are clean cut and very professional. I give it 5 Stars!!!!

Room Tip: We love the ocean view rooms but the pool view rooms are also awesome too.

Location is stunning and unbeatable overlooking the Indian Ocean and far enough away from the main road. Huge compound with amazing flora & fauna, the sandy beach is just for you and a few local fishermen.
Accommodation is spacious, well kept and spotlessly clean, with zircon, fan and fridge. Two pools and fantastic restaurant; try the seafood!

we have looked for the best ayurvedic clinics in Sri Lanka last year december and found a real unspoild pearl in Tangalle; named : The Eva Lanka Hotel.
We never had a experience so good and so friendly as in this resort. Do your self a favour and book your aryuvedic weeks here ! The Eva Lanka is also a normal holiday resort but if you book your ayurveda stay you will be treated as a VIP. They do everything to comfort you! They coock special meals if requested for your diet and you will have massages every day, steambath etc.
All in one ( unbelievable low price per week ). There is only one thing: the rooms are dated, you must be aware of that but on the other hand good food and the resort is hughes, so no nuisance of other guests.

The setting and scenery are stunning, and the facilities are great (for the reasonable price), although a simple coat of paint would smarten things up a bit. Everything is absolutely fine, and yet..... there is something that's missing, and I don't know what it is! It may have been that we were there towards the end of the season. The staff were helpful and friendly, but seemed like amateurs. It didn't help that very few of them spoke even simple English (the international language, whether you like it or not). Somehow 'the spirit' wasn't there. I think it might be a management problem. Having said that, we left a bracelet behind by mistake, and the Manager took great pains to get it delivered (free) by his driver back to Colombo for us. If only the same energy had been put into realising the full potential of the hotel.
