I came for my first visit to Sri Lanka and stayed here for four nights with a group of friends on the final leg of our Sri Lanka trip. I can not speak more highly of this fabulous boutique beach house nestled among palm trees, located near town. Each room is tastefully designed and our rooms were extremely comfortable. Heaven!!
The hustle and bustle of Sri Lanka can be challenging at times but The Boat House was a true oasis! We loved our stay here. The house, as many have said before, is beautiful. Each bedroom has it's own character, own bathroom and allows you to be on your own in a comfortable way. The new pool was a real bonus, a great place to cool down and sit beside with your evening G&T!
Being right on the beach was fabulous and so unique, step out of the back gate right on to the sand but due to the trees and bushes around the house you still felt very private.
The staff were delightful, really couldn't do enough to make your stay as perfect as could be possible.
I don't think you'll be disappointed!
You could not get a better location in Weligama. Being able to walk straight out the back gate into the ocean made it easy to surf multiple times a day. It's a great beach for beginner surfers. It's also a stone's throw from sunset cocktails at the nearby hotels, or you can even just make them at the house.
The house was amazing with rooms and common areas to cater for large groups. Beds were comfy too.
The staff are super friendly and always happy to help. They helped us book a safari tour which turned out great. Our stay for a week flew by, I could have easily stayed longer.
My family and I travelled to SL in November last year, and had a fantastic time at The Boathouse on Weligama Bay. The house is well designed for an extended family (we had my wife's parents with us who had the private cottage suite), with numerous sitting areas but also spacious, bedrooms and ensuites.
We had planned to do a lot more site seeing around the area, but ended up staying at the house most of the holiday - just what we needed in terms of reconnecting and not having a time agenda. The staff were accommodating and organised dinners for us with short notice, and we sat on the beach or deck for sundowners every day. Perfect.
Thanks again for having us - we really enjoyed this trip.
