*New from November 2019: plunge pool in rear garden for guests to enjoy!!* Bright airy apartment with balcony and semi-open air bathroom, situated opposite a cinnamon field in a peaceful green spot. This is an ideal base from which to enjoy the beach life of Hikkaduwa, in a relaxing environment.
“Just spent two amazing weeks at Banana Leaf Apartments with my wife. Hannah and Amila were perfect hosts, full of local knowledge and always helpful and on hand to help with any questions. From the moment we arrived they made us feel welcome with their amazing hospitality and by the time we left it we felt we had always known them. The apartment was perfect, spotlessly clean and had everything you need for your holiday whether your there for a couple of days or a couple of weeks. Hikkaduwa is an amazing place to spend time but it can be very noisy and chaotic. Banana Leaf is perfectly positioned. Hidden away in a jungle setting amongst cinnamon and palm trees, waking up to the sound of chipmunks, wild peacock, sun birds and parrots but a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute tuc tuc ride puts you at the Galle road with all the shops, bars and restaurants you could ever need and the fantastic beach. I couldn't recommend Banana Leaf enough, perfect for nature lovers and beach lovers. We cant wait to get back there next year!”
Sailors' Bay is a beautiful guest house situated right on the shores of the Indian Ocean. Guest House offers A/C and non A/C rooms with a huge sea view terrace. This room is not a sea view room but if you sit at the balcony area of this room you will have some scenery (like in the pictures). Guest House consists of 6 bed rooms each with an attach toilet. It also provides free private parking, Wifi and hot water. Guests can enjoy the beach as their own private beach.
“If you are looking for a paradise beach, with a sunset to die for, look no further than Sailors Bay, at Dodanduwa, just two hours drive south from Colombo. It is a family run business, with six, spacious, self contained rooms with good WiFi, good electrics and great shower facilities. The breakfast is served outside under a thatched canopy, as you listen to the waves tumble on to the beach. Real coffee, four fruits, spicy omelette, toast and the most delicious coconut honey pancakes. Dilan and his brother were attentive and cared for my every need. It’s the little things that made it so good, a self catering kitchen, with fridge space, or their wealth of knowledge about transport and places of interest. They have thought of everything. I travelled alone and at 71, felt welcome and safe.”

“We spent 10 days at Sailor’s Bay, and by the end of our stay, the place felt like home. The room was very clean and comfortable. Good breakfast is available at the property, and if you wish, the hosts can arrange a fish BBQ or cook some delicious local food for dinner – we had some rice and curry with fish, which was amazing. The beach at the property is just perfect – very clean with only a few people around. There is plenty of good restaurants near the property worth visiting: great kottu in the local place just across the road, fresh fish and seafood at Sunrise and A2 within walking distance, and a lovely ambiance and home-made pasta at Mangrovia on the lagoon just a 5-minute ride away on a tuk-tuk. The hosts are great – very kind and helpful people, fluent in English and always available. They helped us arrange great surf-lessons, a trip to the jungle (Kanneliya) and a lagoon safari at Maduganga lake, which were all worthy and unforgettable experiences for a really friendly price. We’d be happy to come to this place again.”
