I had the pleasure of taking some surfing lessons at The Green Rooms with surfing instructor Jake. Jake was an excellent teacher and showed me and my friend the ropes of surfing. He knew this sport inside out and how to teach us all the techniques very quickly. His teaching style is calm and collected and expect to get great results. In our second lesson we were comfortable with surfing small to medium waves! Would highly recommend this place all thanks to Jake's lessons. If you're keen on starting your surfing experience this is the place to go and the instructor to see. Will definitely come again. Ten out of 10.

We came to stay at the green rooms for a weeks holiday. Clean and tidy accommodation, lovely staff and amazing location. All of the staff are so friendly and chatty (and fit) and we had a great time learning to surf, Ben taught us, he is a fab teacher. Also great for recommendations for places to go to eat or things to do if we wanted but the food at the green rooms was also amazing if we chose to stay in. Niran, Ben, Jake, Morris, Sven and all the other kitchen boys were so lovely and we hope to come back next year!

Green Rooms is an ideal place to really get into your surfing in a very friendly place right on the beach - at nowhere in Weligama (or nearby) can you just walk out onto the beach and surf, with a super friendly and smiley team that work super hard and are always in a good mood. It has a great vibe that rubs off on other guests. The twice daily surfing classes are well run according to your ability - they took me to my first reef break and they have their own boat so you can try different spots if keen. The rooms were comfortable and most have ocean views, and the food was delicious and pretty speedy. For anyone wanting to take their surfing up a level or to just try it out, and who likes friendly company and beachside chilling, then I can’t recommend Green Rooms enough. Thanks AJ, Yasir, Morris, Ben, Jake and others!

Ajith and the whole crew (from the kitchen staff to the cleaning ladies to the surf instructors) are simply awesome! Very easy going, cheerful & helpful! And the food is amazing! Legendary sunset surf. And best of all: it's right there! No need to jump in a tuk tuk, just take 5 steps and you enter the water!

The Green Rooms was my favourite place in South Sri Lanka back in 2016 and even today it´s my favourite place! It´s at the outer edge of tWeligama Bay and therefore slightly less busy - with a nice surf spot right in front. The entire set-up (restaurant, sun beds and hammocks) is lovely and invites you to have a lazy afternoon. I absoltuely loved the chilled vibes of the place! AJ, the owner, made sure I had a warm welcome when returning after three years and truly made me feel like I was at home. At Christmas and New Years a really nice dinner was prepared The staff is super friendly and helpful ... and the cook is preparing the best tuna in the area (I´ve tried many places, but The Green Rooms was the only place that didn´t disappoint me). The place also rents nice surf gear, does GREAT guiding and perhaps you´re lucky and get to to the Fisherman point by boat. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME!!!!!!!!
