Loved our stay at Sounds of Nature
We stayed at Sounds of Nature for 5 nights and it was the best accommodation we had in our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka. The hotel is only about 6 months old . Dima our Host was wonderful - cooked our breakfast, was very helpful, nothing was a problem for him, such a lovely person! Every morning around 5.30am the monkeys came to feed on the trees right outside our room. There were also squirrels, birds, tiny lizards - it truly was the "Sounds of Nature" . My husband and daughter also saw a Mongoose on their adventure walk, close to Sounds of Nature. It was walking distance to beach and places to eat or a quick bus ride. There were good cafes on the beach with fresh seafood, music and Happy Hour every evening. We hope to return one day.
Pros: Staff & Location, it was down a quiet lane not right on busy road . All new and is surrounded by lots of trees which attracts monkeys, squirrels.
Cons: Sign on Main road so drivers can find the Hotel. Perhaps a fridge outside in eating area, so guests can use at any hour to put own drinks etc
Location: Short walk to beach and also to main road can either walk into town or catch bus, tuk tuk.
