Travelling inland, you can visit a number of very important and lovely temples passing rice paddy fields and tea/cinnamon plantations along the way.

Sri Lanka is also famous for its precious and semi-precious stones with jewellers available to make pieces on request. Take photos along so you are well prepared if this interests you.

Reviews

Perfect vacation! The house was wonderful! My husband and I took the front bedroom, connected to the indoor bath with an ocean view. Our friends took the back bedroom connected to the outdoor bath. Our two girls used the daybeds in the tv room. Plenty of room and privacy for all. Those 3 rooms have a/c. The great room (dining area and kithchen) has ceiling fans and the walls slide completely open to the deck. Incredible view from the deck! The staff was attentive and available the banana smoothies served with breakfast were the best! Nice casual restaurants/bars within walking distance. Gentle swimming area sheltered by a reef a short walk just around the point to the west. Easy drive to Marissa, a great swimming and boogie boarding beach, and into Unawatuna and Galle. Weather in April was HOT so the a/c was nice. One night a big thunderstorm blew through and weather the following day was cooler and breezy. Highly recommend Marleys beach house!
Had a ball - loved the house, especially the outdoor bath and shower. Make sure you take your own wine/champagne as difficult to find good stuff locally. Great food (Deepika's curries etc) but no deli food readily available. Very relaxing and good times had by all. (Kate & Will Wilkins, Dec 2007)
Fantastic location - right on the beach and a perfect blend of indoor/outdoor living. Ranga is great, and helped us out with everything we needed including some delicious lake prawns and crabs plus lobster caught out front of the house. We will definitely be back.. (Antoinette Keith, Nov 2007)
