Fabulous hospitality, Chathu & his team are great people. Nothing is too much trouble for them- they are 'service with a smile' personified. My only regret is not staying longer.

I strongly recommend this accommodation. It is situated close to the beach and many surf spots in beautiful village of Midigama. Rooms are clean and comfortable and there is also a big garden where you can chill. The food is great and owner and stuff are very friendly and helpful. You will love it!

What a great place! Chathu and his family are so welcoming. Surf spot 5' walking from the location. But surf is not the only activity here...just ask Chathu, he will be more than happy to give you valuable advices and even arrange your visits. The guest house atmosphere is also really warm and peaceful. We highly recommend Plantation Surf Inn,...
