          A very well run place by JoAnne and Sadru Teja. Excellently trained staff, good food , well appointed rooms , good access to the sea and personalised service. Good value for money. JoAnnes , rescued animals add a flavour to the place.

          Why does TripAdvisor allow the owner of Ngalawa Beach Village to mention our names and other people that visited the resort also whilst our reviews get edited or removed becai5of honest feedback to warn other travelers not to make the same mistake. I wrote close to 90 reviews, and this was my last 1 as we feel TripAdvisor doesn't allow fair negative reports of actual experiences.

          I see people mentioning the price of drinks but our agent advised that drinks are included in the package, please advise. Also advise if the resort caters for an Indian vegetarian (no meat or seafood) diet.
