The most amazing staff, food and all round good vibes 👌🏼 So close to a great surf break - our favourite holiday destination after travelling to bali for 3 weeks. A must for couples looking for a chilled holiday. Minimal crowds and very peaceful. Nawoh the owner, is a legend! I love cricket so he took me to play cricket with a local team, one of my best experiences while travelling. A true testament to the person he his and the amazing place he’s established! Can’t wait to go back 🙏🏼

Wedged between the beach stretch of Hiriketiya bay and a small stream that joins the sea is this lovely holiday home. The food including the cocktails were amazing and we’re meeting the European standards. They also offer surfing boards to then houseguests free of charge. The bedrooms were of average comfort. The hotel staff were quite friendly and helpful. The overall deal was value for money.

The food was amazing, each ingredient was fresh and wholesome. The ambiance and chill music helps you relax and take in the chill beach vibes. All in all one of the must visit spots if you’re ever in Hiriketiya.
