When you first open the door, what you see is a beautiful and colourful nest, the ideal place to end a honeymoon round trip in Sri Lanka. Monique and Chanaka make you feel welcome as soon as you pass the door, and that will not change until even after you've left when they're checking - just like you family would...

For our honeymoon, we had a wonderful time in Sri Lanka, and especially at La Maison Nil Manel. Monique and Chanaka are perfect hosts and their Boutique Hotel is a wonderful place with gorgeous rooms, superb swimming pool and amazing gardens. Everything was perfect or so, even the weather! We definitely recommand that hidden gem.

We spent a perfect but unfortunately too short week in an exceptional residence. The welcoming by Monique and Chanaka is warm, friendly and professional, and they remain attentive to our requests. Staff at the Maison Nil Manel is courteous, smiling, discreet and always ready to help. The rooms are furnished with lots of character and exudes a great serenity. Monique...

A place magical worthy of the biggest dream. What is better than one night in Nil Manel ? Nothing. A warm reception and a team more than perfect. Thank you very much to Monique and Chanaka for this stay which we will never forget. I can't wait to return for ambience and peace of this splendid home.

We were lucky enough to stay at La Maison Nil Manel over the New Year's holiday 2015. What can I say? It was fantastic.

We (myself and my 2 daughters) spent a week at Nil Manel over new Year 2015.

Breakfast were heaven in the beautiful gardens, and evening meals prepared...

“By the nature of our family configuration we had the two adjoining rooms on the first floor. We had a four poster and bathroom and our kids a shower room. The kids' room had three beds in a row... really cute temple beds with mozzie nets over making 4 posters- which they loved.”
