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.
