Wonderful and invigorating

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Salt Beach House for 10 days. That was the two of us and my two children (who are 10 and 13). The house is really lovely inside with plenty of light and great views out to the sea. Being October the weather was quite wild so the sea was rough and the sound of the waves breaking on the shore can be heard in the house. That makes you feel alive.

The road the house is on is busy and noisy but this is part of being in Sri Lanka and it was something we grew to love over our stay. We could walk straight out the gate and jump in a tuk tuk or we could walk along the beach for miles. There were turtles in the surf and the most spectacular sunsets. The children were happy trying to train themselves to do underwater lengths of the pool for hours when needed.

There are sometimes power cuts and there might be a noisy bread van in the morning but this just adds to the experience of being there. Ranjan looked after us incredibly well and was very gracious and considerate of us all. He cooked us a great curry and told us lots of interesting things about his country. James, the house manager, came to see us regularly and gave us some great tips on where to go; a thoroughly nice chap. The night watchman is a wonderful character and stands in the middle of the road with a small torch to flag down a tuk tuk for you after dark. We left him a head torch to try and make that a bit easier.

If you want to stay somewhere that makes you feel connected with power of the sea whilst also allowing you to dip into the busyness of everyday life, this place is perfect.

We both run businesses in the UK and get very little time off so we needed to feel invigorated and rested at the same time. This holiday achieved this in spades; thank you all at Salt Beach House for helping it happen.

We will return.

Everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I, my husband and 3 kids fell in love with the house at first site. The house is located off the main beach, so it felt very private. Yet the main beach is within 100m walking distance and there we could find good places to eat and drink. The house has lovely interior and has everything you need, and is very well maintained.

The guest manager, Ranjan is very helpful but modest and we liked him a lot. The night guard, Ran, was great as well and one night he came to knock the door to let us know that a sea turtle just landed 10m away from the house to lay eggs. It was a life time experience! Rashka, the house manager was very helpful as well to help us arrange transportation to next destinations and we had a comfortable ride in a spacious van to the Udewalawe national park then to Ella.

Most of the time I was just sitting in a long bench in the living room just looking over waves and kids playing in the garden pool.We totally enjoyed our experiences at Salt Beach House and felt refreshed from head to toe. Looking forward to coming back to the house in the near future.

Brilliant Beach Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time at Salt Beach House. The house is really lovely and very well set up. We spent hours in the garden watching the waves roll in from Indian Ocean, as well as the amazing turtles!!! We were incredibly well looked after by the staff. We simply cannot wait for our next holiday to Sri Lanka..we will definitely be booking Salt Beach again!

A wonderful stay at a very special place

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two young daughters and I spent a wonderful week at Salt Beach House and did not want to leave!

The house is very stylish with two spacious bedrooms and beautiful en suite bathrooms. The shower area in the master en suite is open air and if the sun shines in the right place you can shower in a rainbow! The small garden with several coconut palms is lovely and the pool is fantastic. The garden gate leads directly to the beach and you can watch the waves from the garden or the house. Our daughters are 2 and 4 and we felt very safe and secure in the house, especially with Ram, the nightwatchman keeping an eye on things after dark.

The location on Dallawella Beach is excellent with lively Unawatuna and swanky Talpe both very short tuk-tuk rides away. Ten minutes walk along Dalawella Beach there is an amazing natural coral lagoon which is perfect for swimming with children. As others have said, the road is quite busy but the noise didn't bother us over the pleasant sounds of the sea and the ceiling fans.

Ranjan, the guest manager, was brilliant. He makes a lovely breakfast every day, cleans the place up and is on hand should you need anything. We asked him to make curry for us one night which was delicious and a bargain! The nearest large supermarket is in Galle, but with so many good, casual places to eat dotted along the beaches, and breakfast provided, we didn't self-cater much at all. We also met Rasika, the house manager, who was lovely and speaks fluent English, in the unlikely event you need anything Ranjan can't arrange.

For a family of four, or two couples, Salt Beach House is a superb choice and we very much hope to return some day.

Wonderful house, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Salt Beach House, especially watching the turtles feeding on the coral reef on the shore just beyond the garden fence. Stunning location, and the house had everything we needed.
