We enjoyed our stay very much and would like to return for another visit.

We had a nice stay but we did miss a nicer atmosphere at the hotel - more cozyness - otherwise good hotel, nice staff, good rice and curry

Small units, very quiet, beach across the road. Swimming was ok. We slept there on our way back to Colombo, a lot of hotels along the road. Did not eat there as it was closed, probably because of the elections in january 2015. Breakfast was good. thanks

We were very satisfied and we really would advise staying here. The place is very relaxing and the room very nice. The only (very very minor) downside is the dinner, decent but not something to die for. However there is plenty of restaurants nearby.

A very pleasant relaxing short stay. The hotel is fairly new and well looked after by staff.

      Room was sufficiently big and clean with a nice balcony looking out to the sea. Quiet beach in front of the resort and walking distance to restaurants. Please try the Swanbourne Restaurant which can be reached in 10mins walk. Had a great dinner there!

      If you are looking for a place to wind down, don't look further. Serein Beach hotel is very peacefully located between the beach and the lagoon. There are enough food options a short beach walk away, however the food in the hotel was also good. Check the cocktails in 'The Lounge Bar' 200 meters to the right, walking on the beach, just past and up the pier. Our room was impeccable. Nice view, clean, cosy ... only thing missing was a fridge but you can always use the one in the lobby. The staff and manager did everything to make our stay special. We stayed 3 nights and really felt at home. The road to the hotel is a bit bumpy, but once you reach Serein Beach it truly is an oasis of quiet and peace. I hope to visit again!

      A bit overpriced, but nice stay nevertheless”
      It is our first time staying in a property that is on the beach itself, other than the times we went camping. Overall it was a nice experience, the soothing sound of waves and refreshing breeze. We slept well with the balcony doors open. The tuk-tuk ride from Tangalle town to Serein Beach Hotel costs around 200-250 Rupees. Mr. Chaminda, the hotel manager, is friendly and helpful. We paid USD60 for a first-floor room for a one-night stay. Personally I felt that the property would be better priced in the USD40-50 range. If there is television in the room, and swimming pool, then USD60 might be more reasonable. If you like squirrels then you will love this place, because those cute little animals are scurrying here and there all the time.

      An amazingly tranquil spot right on the beach”
      Serein Beach Hotel lies at one of the most beautiful places on the whole of Sri Lanka. The hotel has just a couple of handfuls of rooms and the general mood is super relaxed and welcoming. It's located at a very remote (but safe) area of Tangalle (Medilla), so it's the perfect place for some serious relaxation and meditation. The staff was incredibly welcoming and helpful at all times and we knew instantly that we'll be coming back. If we had to pick on something, it would be the lack of dinner options. While they serve 3 different types of breakfast (Western, Continental and Sri Lankan), their dinner option was limited to just a few options. The food was however very good, so it's not considered a minus.

      Excellent beach holiday ”
      The hotel is excellent - room us huge and comfortable, with all the necessary factilites, beautiful balcony with view of the ocean, the atmosphere is very relaxed. Staff is very helpful and food in the restaurant very good. The only drawback is that sea in front of the hotel is not too good for swimming (there are stones in the sea, but lots of good beaches within a short walk. All in all - a great place for a beach holiday

      After staying in various places during our trip that was a retreat. Nice ambient and eco-friendly modern interior, almost spotlessly clean room made our stay unique. If we had time we'd definitely stay another night or two. Resonably priced and quality food. Bear in mind that you can't swim in front of the hotel (approx. 300m north).

      Very good hotel”
      Very clean and peaceful hotel. The rice and curry at the restaurant is one of the best we had in Sri Lanka. The only downfall for me is that the beach opposite the hotel is not suitable for swimming and not as nice as the beach further along the coastline away from Tangalle. We tried the food at the nearby restaurants and it is not nearly as good, so eat at the hotel. It is a quite place, more suitable for families and couples, if you want a party - better look for other hotels.

      Cozy hotel with comfy rooms that have beautiful view of the ocean. Good breakfast (eggs, fruit platter, plenty of toast, tea or coffee). Wifi is good but not everywhere. Plenty of nice restaurants nearby - right on the beach - where you can have dinner. The staff is really friendly and helpful!

      serenity at serein beach hotel”
      I visited Tangalle and stayed at this lovely place last April 2016. It was low season thus the ambience was very calm--- which I prefer.. As soon as I arrived to the place (which was around 2.5km from the bus station), I immediately felt relaxed. When they showed me to my room, I said to myself, "the long trip-- bus, train, tuktuk" was definitely worth it! All the rooms have a balcony and a view of the beach! If you open the doors, you can hear the sound of the waves, which has a tranquil effect on me.. There are hammocks and beach chairs out in the facade, close to the ocean and you can easily have a nap there. The food is ok, and you can opt to walk to nearby restaurants to try their food, but the food at the hotel is already good for me. What I like is that you have to pre-order and you can tell them what time you would like to have your meal. Breakfast was great! You can have a choice among western, continental and local sri lankan. Local cuisine is a must-try! I don't have bad things to say about this hotel.. You can even ask the reception to send a tuktuk if you want to go out..
