Guesthouse in Sri Lanka, Sri Lankan beach guesthouses, value guesthouses, Family guesthouses

Great value and high quality Sri Lanka guesthouses for your sri Lankan holiday. Located in village, river or beach environments and decorated to a high standard. Most guesthouses are family run with friendly service albeit a lower staff to guest ratio. Many have a separate restaurant open to non-residents ensuring exciting local menus and daily fresh food. Characterful architecture smaller in size and sometimes compromised by their lack of a swimming pool.

Our specialists have reviewed and selected the best beach guesthouses and we have negotiated rates far lower than you will experience by booking direct.
