I was in Sri Lanka on a Business Trip (mid november 2016) and went to the Sri Lanka Surf Camp / 7th Sky Idyll Guesthouse over the weekend. It was absolutely amazing: After having been in Surfcamps in Bali and Portugal, I can say this one in Sri Lanka is the BEST! Beachbreak in front of your room, so just... More

It's a good place if you are on a budget. great for surfers. When we checked in, the bed sheets on some of the beds were not in good shape. upon request, they were replaced. They also had an issue with the water supply and we didn't have water in the morning for a few hours. but overall, the place... More

Stayed here to go surfing with the crew from Surfcamp SriLanka. Matty has a great set up for all levels. Lessons twice a day with qualified instructors, improvers or advanced surfers can hit the two spots near the hotel which are usually not too busy. Great level of surf in lovely warm water. Possibly one of the best places i... More

Firstly, a few words of defence for the 7th Sky Idyll. The cost of the place is appropriate to its comfort; basic, clean and comfortable. The speed of the service in the restaurant is entirely fitting with the entirety of Sri Lanka; slow but friendly, extremely cheap, safe and tasty. There are running repairs around the place consistent with some... More

i spend 3 weeks in december 2013 here at this awesome place. I must say its one of the best spots I've ever surfed. You have a beach break, and 2 reef breaks right in front of the house. The instructors did a really good job too at that time. Matt is not only a great surfer but most of... More

Full disclaimer - I was taught to surf by Matty in Portugal. After a chat with Matty last October, he persuaded me to venture away from my usual Algarve beaches in search of warmer waves - so I booked up a trip to the Surf Camp Sri Lanka @ 7th Sky Idyll Guesthouse. On arrival after a long flight and... More

Spent 3 weeks there in December - Magic place & spots! You get a good taste of Sri Lankan vibes, with great food and the locals working there - Matt & the team of surf coaches make sure everyone is looked after. The camp is literally in front of 3 surf spots :-) Rooms are nice and clean - You... More

During our 2 ½ week trip through Sri Lanka, we spent one week at the Seven Sky Guesthouse for surfing. As we were both beginners with less and more experience, we participated in the surf camp. The negative noise we read upfront in Trip Advisor raised our curiosity. What will we really find on site! In a nutshell, we had... More

I had a wonderful time at 7th Sky Idyll. It's not one of those generic hotels owned by a European guy, it's 100% Sri Lanka and that makes is so nice. No over polite stuff, just honest friendly people. Your room might not be cleaned automatically every day, but you just ask for it and someone will take care of... More
