Sunilanka Guest House  Price rating for Sunilanka Guest House South West



A classic Sri Lankan travellers' guesthouse in the tourist town of Aluthgama with a friendly, sociable atmosphere.  It is simple, but comfortable, with a popular riverside restaurant.

A modern collection of 6 rooms and 1 apartment at a very reasonable price.  Sunil, the owner, wanders through the garden courtyard and restaurant most days, ensuring your every need is met. This will include a rather keen push for you to visit his jewellery shop, go on day trips with his drivers, take a fishing trip with him(!) or the neighbouring water sports centre.

Romantically set on the river overlooking a collection of riverboats and fishing boats, just a 5-minute boat trip from Bentotaís finest beach.  Sunil has an interesting group of local beach boys who bring a sociable selection of tourists to the restaurant each night, which makes for a fun evening.   Sam, the manager, and his staff are not as enthusiastic as Sunil and service is wanting at times.

Lonely Planetís founder Tony Wheeler has favoured this guesthouse since conception but we fear that standards have slipped over time.  Outside the gates, the riverside road and surrounding streets run through to bustling Aluthgama town.   

This is an unusual hotel for Boutique Sri Lanka but believe us when we say its brimming with young, fun atmosphere and is always a hit with travellers - even just as a place to drink and make friends.
