“Loved it!”
Reviewed 12 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay. We arrived over the Chinese New Year and after a rocky drive there and car sick kids, we settled into the home like it was our own. The kids loved having a front yard (we currently live in Malaysia on the 30th floor) and did not leave the pool or beach in front. beautiful rooms, Ranjan was great and it was just so nice to come home to after a day of sight seeing. The only down side was 2 days we were without WIFI and power overnight so rooms got hot without air con and the water supply was off - but life is short, and the view out the front was more important than the above. So thankyou!

Hi guys, glad to hear you had a fantastic holiday at the house. Thanks for the lovely review, we enjoyed having you stay!
The beauty of Sri Lanka is in it's simple way of life and old world charm, at times that can unfortunately mean the odd district wide powercut. These usually only last a few hours so we are really sorry to hear that that you had an unusually long one. We hope to welcome you back to the house in the not so distant future! Thanks for staying with us.

“Perfect in every way...”
Reviewed 11 May 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Stayed at Salt Beach with 5 girlfriends and we had a ball. Such a beautiful property, gorgeous decor and all modern facilities. The pool was a huge hit and many hours were spent just lounging under the palm trees and taking relief from the sun in the pool. It was a very comfortable stay and I would be very tempted to return when the funds replenish. Definitely one to recommend....

“Amazing beach side property with private pool”

Salt Beach House is divine and I can't recommend it highly enough! Right on the beach, amazing views, gorgeous house and private salt-water pool! Perfect place to relax with a friend after a busy few weeks travelling.

The beach immediately in front is a little too rough for swimming at this time of year, so you get an uninterrupted view all day long... apart from the occasional turtles cruising along in the waves. Two moveable lounge chairs and some large palm trees means even the palest of pale can shade-bake throughout the day, dipping in the pool for a quick cool off when necessary.

About a 100 metres up the beach is a beautiful coral lagoon perfect for swimming, with local restaurants for a meal or sneaky lunchtime cocktail. A surf school is also just a short drive away if one is feeling adventurous - ask Ranjan to direct a tuk tuk where to go!

The house is classy yet casual and very clean. Couldn't fault the big, comfortable beds, the gorgeous ocean facing lounger, outdoor dining area and well equipped kitchen. The fresh flowers throughout the house deserve a special mention!! Simply beautiful. The laundry was a godsend after weeks of travel and hotel stays.

The guest manager Ranjan was amazing, freshening the place up every morning after cooking us a beautiful breakfast - eggs, fresh fruit and coffee. I was also really impressed with the booking manager Antoinette - she was prompt in responding to all my questions and organised airport transfers for me (available on request, extra cost). It was great to have a car waiting to whisk me to Salt Beach House (1.5 hours when no traffic) on my arrival in Colombo at 4am.

Free wifi made keeping in touch with home a breeze.

I loved my stay at Salt Beach House and will definitely return!! Highly recommend a visit!
