Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Very comfortable and lovely location on the beach. We hope to return soon!

  • 5 of 5

Ranjan made us feel welcome and looked after us. Despite having worried about being so close to the road, we all slept really well. The kids felt completely safe and made very good use of the pool. With Wijaya Beach right around the corner, it was very easy to get to the lagoon and the bar/restaurant. A great stay - but too short! Thank you

Owner's Response: Hi guys, Thanks for staying at SALT. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. You're right, all the southern coast beach houses are located on the coastal road. Luckily, SALT is on a comparatively quieter stretch! We hope you come back for a longer stay next time!

Honeymoon Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at peppers jungle for 10 nights on our honeymoon. What an amazing experience it was being so comfortable up in the jungle. The service was amazing, with the food being a stand out for us. James, Chaminda and Lahiru helped us with all our needs. Pure luxury, highly recommended. We will be back in 2017!

A hidden gem of a haven!

  • 5 of 5

My mother & I arrived early evening for our 2 night stay, and even at dusk we were immediately enchanted and enthralled by this place - and couldn't wait to wake up the next morning and discover it by daylight! Salt Beach House is stylishly, simply, comfortably and elegantly fitted out - with an easy, calm and carefree attention to detail - just what you want when the hustle & bustle of Sri Lankan life is right on your doorstep! The beds are heavenly and the shower rooms with the open air ceiling a treat night or day. The house staff were welcoming, attentive and discreet and the breakfast and fruits, divine. A highlight for me was also the pool on the ocean front. I'm a water baby and what a treat it was to dip in & out as we pleased with the sound of the ocean. Can't wait to come back for another dip. Thanks for having us.

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!
