Latheena Resort
Ranked #6 of 115 Weligama B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 January 2014

We dined at the restaurant 4 nights while we stayed in Merissa. It was without doubt the best place we ate during the entire vacation. They are much faster than the other restaurants (and hotels for that matter) and they speak very good English. We tried a lots of different things from their menu but I would in particular recommend their prawns, crab and lobster, which are also cheap compared to the other restaurants.
Finally we also took a look at the rooms of the guest house/resort(called Latheena) they also run – and we are going to stay there the next time we come to Sri Lanka. Overall a must-go when in Merissa.

i recently came back from Sri Lanka and amongst all the places i traveled to and all the resorts i camped at, Latheena was a little memorable.
its located right across the beach so you can quite literally walk into the Indian Ocean with your tea in hand, surf, stroll or just read a book basking under the sun.
however, i know that there are many such hotels available and so not really a unique thingy...but what really captivated me is the amazing food.
Oh God, trust me, fresh fruit juices, and some finger licking naans along with gravy and daal ?(in case you are a fan of Indian cuisine) is to die for. Whats more, the resort people grow their own vegetables and fruits so you know whatever ur ordering is getting plucked fresh out of the garden :) and also, the hotel is run by a most friendly family...

The most charming place to visit, if you are looking for a place to relax with Nice food and a friendly atmosphere.
If you are impatient and looking for an efficient service,This is not a place for you. But we -a family of 4 - came to stay for 4 nights and extended our stay. The food is excellent, and Worth waiting for. The selection of food is large, and shows The families experience from abroad. My teenage sons enjoyed the italian and mexican dishes, while we could choose more local/ or delicious fish courses.
You feel very welcome and is quickly becoming a part of the environment - in a nice way.
I hope to be able to return very soon!

From our arrival the proprietors couldn't have been more helpful: not just the welcome tea but also a massage and treatment for my backstrain resulting from the five hr drive from Ella! The location is good if you like laidback and beachfront and probably better placed than Weligama or Mirissa unless it's big surf you're after. Certainly the small messy waves and free use of surf and paddleboard are a plus for beginners. Our standard room was great (#1 Marigold) opening onto the garden and breeze. The proprietors are very friendly and trying hard to make their guests stay as comfortable as possible. Breakfasts were good (fruit and yoghout) and their new beachside restaurant has just opened ... and the fresh fish with ginger & cucumber sauce ... always a good option.

This lovely little hotel is run by a very friendly family. The rooms are fastidiously clean. It's undergoing some construction right now so I expect the view would be nice when it's done. the rooms are spacious. The food is delicious here. Rice and curry here could be quite good. You case use the surf boards and paddle board they have lying around. It's also a great value.The family couldn't have been more helpful. Highly recommend it.

I was in Sri Lanka for 9 days and stayed in Latheena for 8 days. It was an brilliant stay with the warmest of the hospitality I have received in my life.
The resort itself is beautiful with plenty of space around it and a secluded beach right in front of the doorsteps. The family of Mr. Priyankara were very nice to us and the food were the best in Sri Lanka. Mr. Priyankara being a trained chef, had us trying his culinary specialties. The rooms are beautiful and very spacious, looking over to the sea.
It was an amazing experience and I would definitely recommend anyone in South to give them a visit for few days.

Room Tip: They have all kinds of rooms to accommodate single traveler to a huge family.

On the (quiet) beach!

The host is so lovely, we didnt found a friendlier person in Sri Lanka.

And dont forget the food, the Mexican food is amazing, good in price and so welcome after all those rice and curries ! (the cook lived in Japan for a while). So cheap and so good! Go there!
