Space is located in one of the greatest beaches in the world for turtle nesting. There are 5 different species of turtles migrating to this beach each year for nesting. This is the only beach in Sri Lanka where you can see turtles laying eggs. And these tours are done by professional from home town who runs a project to save turtles and which benefits the local community. We also have a beautiful and peaceful beach full of seashells and rocks where you can have a dreamy sunset.
“I had a wonderful time at Sumudu's place. I was looking for a quiet place in nature at the beach and this is exactly what it is. It is very simple but beautiful. You see peacocks (!), large lizards and small monkeys in the garden and its surroundings. It was incredible to see the stars and the fireflies in the bushes that looked as if shooting stars were falling into Sumudu's garden. Sumudu and his business partner, the cook did everything to make my stay as comfortable as possible. They organized a yoga math for me and brought me to an Ayurveda treatment nearby. As a single female traveler, I always felt safe and relaxed at Sumudu's place. I wanted to try the local traditional curd with palm honey (highly recommend) which was not on the menu and they bought it for me, so I can try it. I had a wonderful time and highly recommend this small paradise.”
Beautiful private suite with bathroom, balcony and garden. Walking distance from the beach. My family and I run a small restaurant close to the room where you can enjoy the best view over the bay and have delicious food.
“This is such a wonderful place. A small lovely village (unakuruwa) right next to the ocean, fishermen selling their fresh fish in small restaurants on the beach. A choice of three beaches to go to within minutes: a big picture perfect large beach to go swimming under the palm trees, a beach to learn how to surf and hang with the locals, and a small beach to go snorkelling and see giant sea turtles. And all this without many other tourists. Nilan & Shani are really friendly people, and you meet the rest of their loverly family aswell. They took such a great care. Surprise cups of tea and coffee, free use of their snorkling gear, fresh flowers in our little garden terrace every day. Just perfect. We could go out and enjoy the beach, but after that relax for some hours in our house or in our private garden. Hungry: walk 2 meters to the restaurant and enjoy good food overlooking the ocean. Would highly recommend to anyone that is looking for something else than crowded tourist beach life.”

Breakfast is incl in the price. A cook is also available for lunch/dinner.
“A simple, relaxing place in a beautiful spot, BvR is the perfect way to get away from it all. We were a family of 4, with two boys aged 13 and 10. There were two small double beds, and our kids were (just) able to share that. The housekeeping was amazing. Sisira was a charming concierge. His English is limited but he manages to communicate and is lovely. He went above and beyond to help us, even coming with us to see the turtles on New Year’s Day despite there being a big family party for him at home. Athula’s food was great, we ate brilliantly every night. The property is simply decorated, and gives you all you need. The real highlight is the beach which is stunning and - literally - just at the end of the garden. It is practically empty during the day and we saw turtles laying their eggs two hundred yards from our steps one night. Walk twenty minutes along the beach to the left as you look at the ocean and there’s a cool little rock pool for swimming. We also ate at Ruwani which I can really recommend. Doesn’t look like much but the lady that runs it is great and the curry and rice was among the best we had all trip.”
