A truly memorable experience in all the right ways. Suraj was a mind reader and looked after everyone extremely well. The chefs ensured we experienced all the flavours Sri Lanka had to offer - and we definitely never went hungry. The villa and grounds were kept very clean and tidy. a beautiful pool to enjoy and the sandy beach is literally only 10 metres away.

We loved everything about staying at the Boat House - from the super-friendly welcome from Prince to the wonderful pool. The house is perfect for a family holiday - lovely open plan sitting room/dining room opening onto the garden and great spacious bedrooms. We loved being right on the beach and the close proximity of surfing. The market in Dikwella on Saturdays is not to be missed!! The best thing however was the service and the wonderful way that we were looked after by Prince, Mohammed and Premil - they really made our holiday so relaxing and comfortable and were always smiling! We didn't need to worry about anything and were able to unwind completely.

Thank you to everyone at The Boat House for making our stay so amazing. The food was insanely good, which is not easy with all our dietary requirements which were catered for. The view of the beach is stunning and the accommodation really needs to be seen to be believed. The pool is so tranquil and great for unwinding with a book and a coconut. 5 minutes walk to the amazing Hiriketiya beach which has 2 excellent breaks for beginners and advanced surfers. Even when there were flat conditions there it was a 10 minute tuk tuk ride to a good break. Can't wait to visit again!

We had an amazing time at the Boat House, really quite a special place. Firstly the location, walk across the pool area, down a few steps and you’re on the beach, a huge sandy bay, the sea was the perfect temperature for swimming and very clear water. The next bay along is a super cute coconut lined, a great surfing spot and a few other great surf spots dotted around the coast nearby. Good location for day trips to Galle, Mirissa, Uda Walawe National Park etc. Local shops a walk away in Dikwella, the house is in town but away from the main street so all you can hear is the sound of the sea, very restful. The house itself has been finished to a very, very high standard. Really spacious, big bedrooms each with their own character and huge living/kitchen/outdoor areas. The finishes are really impressive, very luxurious, feels like no expense has been spared, quite unlike anywhere I’ve stayed before. The staff were super nice, Prince who headed up the front of house and Mohamed were both very helpful and attentive and really nice people. The chef was incredible, we ate some amazing food and the local seafood in particular prepared by his skilled hands was to die for. Wish we had a few more days at the Boat House but hopefully we’ll be back again!
