        LOVE IT!”

        Beautiful! We arrived late at night and could only hear the sound of the waves. When we woke up the next morning, we were blown away with the gorgeous view from our room. Service was amazing too :) Definitely value for money!

        Hidden gem”

        We loved our stay at Mahena so much it was hard to leave. The hotel is located on the other side of talalla beach, and has its own private little cove so when you’re done swimming on the large beach, you can come back to the hotel and lounge around looking at waves crashing on the rocks. We were lucky enough to have room 9, with big windows and balcony looking out to the ocean. The room is equipped with a/c, fan, comfortable bedding, full bathroom with a rain shower, and even a small fridge. Service was great, the manager and his staff are very present and enthusiastic to show us around. There are possibilities to dine there and both dinners we had were good. Overall a great address to keep in mind!

        Great stay - great view - great staff”

        This was one of the best places we have stayed in Sri Lanka, it is a small hotel and the staff are very diligent in helping you (even helped us with a driver for safari and onto Ella when we left). Breakfast on the balcony was amazing. Only negative is the driveway to get in - if it’s raining it’s very muddy and there are no lights so bring a phone torch!

        This is a beautiful hotel with a nice location and the staff is fantastic. They're very helpful. We rented a scooter what makes it easy to explore the south coast. Thanks to the owner, Manju who made our stay unforgettable. Kind regards from Norway.

        Best place we stayed at in Sri Lanka”

        We travelled for a month in Sri Lanka and this was by far the best place we stayed at. This beautifull hotel on the top of the hill overlooking the sea has only four rooms, all furnished really well with everything you need. The staff is super super friendly and most helpfull. Manju, Chamul and Suru made us feel really welcome. The hotel has a private little Bay, where it is nice to sit and walk into the water. It is not fit for swimming, watch out for the sea urchins! To get to the main beach it is just a short walk over de hill. This beach is very wide and quiet compaired to the places further West. The meals are homecooked and are served on the terrace with seaview. Especially the rice and curry’s are amazing! Really good price value. A perfect place to relax amongst friendly people.

        Such an innovative welcoming staff!”

        The staff were just SO SO SO helpful and sincere. I can see they are thinking ahead eg: creating the private beach restraunt. Great bathrooms and clean rooms.

        It was great. We spent christmas there and the the staff went out of thier way to be available and helpful. The fresh grilled fish in the private beach restraunt was a highlight and suprise as it was opening night! A short walk to the beach was great in the early morning and it was lovely to pop in and laze about the natural pool back at Mahena followed by sunset on the rockpools. A great place for some peace and quiet where you can really STOP. We will be back and we NEVER leave reviews - these guys just deserve it!

        Schönes, ruhiges und neues Hotel.”

        Schönes neues Hotel. Zimmer sehr groß.Schönes Badezimmer. Sehr ruhige Umgebung. Personal sehr freundlich. Einziger Nachteil ist, dass der Sandstrand nur über einen fünfminütigen Fußmarsch entlang der Hauptstrasse zu erreichen ist. Ohne kleine Kinder aber kein Problem.
