We booked for 3 nights in January during our 6 week holiday travelling in Sri Lanka, and loved it so much we stayed 6! This has to be one of the most beautiful, peaceful places in the world. Staff, particularly Kusum the chef, were amazing. We were fortunate to be present during a turtle hatching beside the restaurant, it was... More

Sweet wooden chalets on the beach, hammocks, relaxing lounges and a nice vibe. Bed was comfy. Fans no air con but don't need it. Bathroom clean and modern. Food at the restaurant was great - recommend the grilled fish. Chamal is particularly a great host to us. Organised everything we needed. He is an asset to this place. Thanks Chamal!

Awesome cabanas in our best place in south Sri Lanka. Really excellent, quiet and wild place. If you go in the south, you must go in Mangrove. Awesome cabanas in our best place in south Sri Lanka. Really excellent, quiet and wild place. If you go in the south, you must go in Mangrove.

This is the place to kick off your shoes, find a hammock and switch off the rest of the world! We enjoyed a really chilled out week here, it was the best start to our 3 week trip to Sri Lanka. The cabanas sit right on the beach and although they are basically furnished they are very comfortable. The little... More

Tangalle Cabanas are just great. It really is the idyllic beach paradise. Rooms are basic and not any hot water but you don't really need it. Bathrooms are down some steep stairs through a hole in the floor so be careful. Would not be good for physically impaired. Restaurant is good and breakfasts serve good omelettes. VERY laid back and... More

Staying at mangrove chalets at the moment. Spotlessly clean EVERYWHERE, nice chalets, great value & very good massage. Beach side breakfast is great. Best of all are the crew (staff) here, nothing is ever too much trouble & the guy who appears to manage everyone does so very well. Would stay here again without a 2nd thought. Fairly quiet at...

The cabanas are rustic but are perfectly formed.They have a massive 4 poster bed with a view straight down to the sea and a bathroom accessed via trapdoor in the floor!! There are 3... More

We had a wonderful stay here in one of the beach cabins. It was simple accommodation but charming - my husband had a bad back so I found lifting the trap door, giving access to the shower room below, rather heavy. The beach is glorious, completely unspoilt and peaceful, you can walk for miles. The sea is dangerous for swimming... More

Had a great stay here, it's right on and the beach is amazing. Imagine white beach, palm trees, serene music.. The wooden cabana was clean, the bed was nice. The food is not special, but the environment is more than worth it. When you want to relax... go here!

Mangrove is on a gorgeous, long quiet beach. We stayed in one of the beach villas situated right on the beach furthest away from the bar and restaurant. The villa was beautiful with a large day bed on the deck perfect for relaxing with a drink whilst watching the sunset. Inside the villa has a four poster bed overlooking the... More
