Just opposite the famous Nallur Temple, this traditional Tamil home gives you an unique opportunity to experience Jaffna from within. Price is per double room and there are three rooms available, with optional A/C.

The space

Built as a traditional Tamil family home right next to Nallur temple, Saranya’s is a special kind of place. It consists of three double rooms with attached bathrooms, built around a central courtyard with a small well. The courtyard also serves as the living room. As the house is next to the Temple food cannot be prepared here, but tea and coffee can be made in the kitchen. The small veranda offers a great view of the main temple square.

Interaction with guests

Taking care of this home is Mr. Kumar, a friendly middle aged man who lives with his wife, young daughter and puppy in separate spaces next to the house. He’s worked in hotels in Lebanon for years and speaks enough English to arrange everything you need, such as food from outside the house and transportation with his tuktuk.

Great welcome from Kumar and Viji. They made me feel right at home. The room in the villa was modern, clean and quiet with a lovely shower with a funky open ceiling and a patio door to my bedroom so I could hear birds in the mornings. My hosts were very helpful and warm and made my experience in Jaffna memorable. The villa is located just in front of Nallur temple, and although it is not very central, it is easy to walk to the areas of intetest, it's located in an attractive neighbourhood (Nallur) and quieter than than staying right in town. It's also next to the tasty Indian vegetarian restaurant, Mango's.

Kumar and his wife, the caretakers here, were incredibly friendly: Kumar drove us all the way to Delft in his tuk tuk, and he and his wife helped us out with laundry, train tickets, restaurants, and everything else we might need. Would certainly stay again.

Amazing place, the guest house was exactly as advertised, just what we wanted. A family home ambience. And the hosts were truly wonderful.

A wonderfully serene and quiet property close to the centre of Jaffna. The caretakers were absolutely lovely, very keen to recommend places to eat and things to do. Very accommodating, 10/10.

Saranya's Villa is incredible. A stone's throw from the Nallur Temple, the rooms here are gorgeous - ours even had a private courtyard and the most stunning tropical outdoor bathroom. We loved this place so much - beautiful!
