We arrived at the Green Rooms in the early afternoon and after a short briefing with the Owner AJ all the uncertainties were clarified so we could move in to our cabana. Later on that day we had our first surf lesson and our teacher Jack showed us how to get on a surfboard. The waves in the Weligama Bay...

Fantastic place! My boyfriend and I stayed at Green Rooms last week and we could not be happier. We had been looking for a surf camp for some time and were very happy to find this place. It was just what we had been looking for! The atmosphere is very relaxed, friendly and chilled. It was great to hang out...

My boyfriend and I booked a couple of nights at the green rooms in advance of flying to Sri Lanka, just so we had somewhere to go to after the long flight. After those two days we didn't want to leave! We felt like family and soon became part of the furniture. The rooms were clean, well kept and had...

We visited in peak season and it was clear the staff were overwhelmed. This would be understandable if the place didn't seem to act as a base camp for a variety of local surf camps at the expense of the guests of the hotel. We paid for surf guiding and surf lessons up front. A big mistake. Our lessons were...

Hi Tom, we are sorry you feel you didn't get the service you paid for. We do have people from other surf camps come and hang out and surf in the bay, and this is the case when we go and surf at breaks near their accommodation. This is typical practise throughout the camps along the coast and we have...

The green rooms is the perfect laid back spot for a beach holiday. The staff were wonderful and we felt like visitors NOT customers, and truly welcomed. Accommodation is basic with outdoor ensuite bathrooms, but exactly what we wanted. At night the animals (dogs and crows)and the sea can be a little noisy, so if you are sound sensitive this...

Glad you enjoyed your stay. What a shame the conditions weren't right for a boat trip to the reef as it's one of my favourite things to do! Maybe next time ;) If you do come back don't forget to claim your 10% returning friends discount!!

I spend a week at the Green Rooms to do a surf camp. The place is lovely, directly situated at the beach. Heaps of different boards to chose from and plenty of cosy sun loungers to chill on after surfing. A trip to Weligama center costs about 200 Rupees. But its amazing how busy surfing and chillaxing can keep you....

Hey Jenny, so pleased you enjoyed your stay and the team could help you progress out of the whitewater! Yes, the pace of service from the kitchen is sometimes slower than we are used to back home but I agree, it does fit with the holiday vibe!

Stop looking for other places and stay here. AJ and the dudes that work there are absolutely awesome, the vibe is relaxed and no frills and if that's what you are looking for then look no further. You are treated like a local and the cabanas are right on the beach which means you get great access to the surf!
