Location description from owner

Southern Province region

Sri Lanka is characterised by its breathtakingly beautiful nature with tropical forests, mountains, waterfalls, nature reserves, large inland lakes, unspoilt beaches, palms, tea plantations, elephants, the inconceivable blue colour and the turbulent surf of the Indian Ocean and an extremely friendly population.The southern coast belt is a lovely place to stay. From November till April the ocean becomes calm, the sky blue and in evening time wonderful sunsets. May, June and July are the hottest months of the year with mostly in the evening tropical rains what is then very refreshing.Galle is the capital of the southern province and has a colourful history. The magnificent Dutch fort was declared World Heritage Site by the UNESCO. The 300 year old Dutch atmosphere is still very much alive in the fort.

“excellent experiences in Sri Lanka”

Reviewed 7 Mar 2013

we stayed here for 6 nights, the location right on the beach, we particularly enjoyed having breakfast ,dinner in front of the sea. excellent service, impressive atmosphere and facillities, highly recommended!!!

We were pleased having you and your friends as our first guests from China . Thanks for recommending The Old Lady at the Sea .

“Absolute tranquility and relaxation”

Reviewed 19 Apr 2012

Stayed here in February 2012 for two weeks with a lagre group of friends (16). Location right on the beach is perfect, but waves right at the front can be large. For kids and adults looking for calmer waters there's a nice strech of very shallow beach just short stroll a away (150 meters or so). Location is very quiet but there're good connections to south coast sightseeing. Pittiwella Boossa is located right between Hikkaduwa and Galle so the tuktuk's don't cost too much to either of these places nor to Unawatuna's brilliant beach. Service is really good so you won't have to lift a finger unless you want to;-D The cook prepared all our meals and they were gorgeus and plentyfull. The only problem was that the food was so good that all of gained extra weight and all our winter clothes were really thight on departure. The food was also amazingly cheap even though we had several diffrent courses on every meal! And always a dessert - try the local curd. The manager is really helpfull and organized many trips for us. Take a whale watching trip from Mirissa if you just have time! You have to leave dead early but it'll be worth it. And we all miss the house puppy, Buli!

We liked your review as you understood why we choose this location to build The Old Lady at the Sea !

“Perfect for 2 or more families or large group of friends”

Reviewed 15 Apr 2012

We stayed at the ''Old Lady by the Sea '' for 1 week this Easter holiday 2012 with 2 other families (9 children from aged 10 to 15 and 7 adults ) . It had good a/c bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms and plenty of space for everyone to find time to themselves or join in . The staff were friendly and helpful , and at same time you could also make your own coffee, tea or snack anytime you pleased . It was our ''home'' for a week and would recommend if you want more than a hotel room. We bought fish and groceries from the market and had some wonderful dinners and cooked breakfasts freshly made during our stay. Is also easy to go to nearby restaurants in Galle or Hikkaduwa . Location was good for accessing local area including Hikkaduwa for beach and surfing just 10 mins away and further south to (45 mins) Mirissa for whale watching and 45 mins to Bentota in the North . Galle Fort just 5 mins away in tuk tuk ! Really enjoyed our stay and great memories . we will definitiely go back

Thanks for your review and indeed our core business is families and large group of friends .
