Beautiful place

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Sept 2019
We stayed here for 4 nights with beautiful people and great service. Everyone was very friendly and made us feel so welcome. The manager was extremely helpful and all staff had a smile on theirs faces 24/7. Food was great as we had breakfast included. Room very clean and Great size with a big balcony, definitely 5 star service x

We loved this hotel, friendly welcome, fun pool, big rooms with romantic mosquito nets, excellent food and inspiring yoga teacher for 2 hour morning session. They offered treatments, but not pedicure ( my brother had this locally) There was a tailor nearby and lots of beach seafood restaurants/ interesting shops.
We walked to Jungle Beach where the locals bathe. Needed Tuk Tuk back!!

Whether you are here for yoga, massage and spa treatment or are just another tired traveller looking for a comfortable place to stay - the Thambapanni Retreat is to be recommended. The rooms are fairly large with very comfortable solid beds and a stylish en suite shower area. There is a table and tea / coffee facilities in the rooms. Wi-Fi isn't always great but that may be an issue with the area rather than the hotel. The breakfast is very good - sometimes a buffet if enough people are staying. In the evenings the menu is limited for vegetarians but the chef will improvise if you ask for a variation to what is advertised. The staff are brilliant and will do anything to assist including booking trips to visit local places of interest etc. The location is also good as it is away from the noise on the main road in the evenings while still being only a two minute walk to the beach.

Room tip: The higher up you go the better the view of the wildlife in the morning when you wake up

We were here during 3 days and rented 2 apartments. The building is very near the sandy beach (2 minutes walk). The rooms were clean and the sight was beautiful. The breakfast is great. You can choose between an English or Sri Lanka breakfast. We also have had lunch and diner. Both times we were surprised by the high quality of the product and taste. The chef Mudcitha did a wonderful job 👍🏻
If you’re going to visit Sri Lanka don’t hesitate and book here 😎

We stayed at the Thambapanni Retreat for three nights at the start of our holiday. It was a super relaxed arrival after a long flight. We really enjoyed breakfast, drinks and dinner at this place. We didn't do the morning Yoga, but it looked quite good. The best thing about Thambapanni is the hospitality and so many people always ready to help you fast and with a smile. We had a great stay!
