I can't imagine there being a better place in Galle. Peaceful. Quiet. Lovely owner. She was so nice to us, my wife was pregnant and even let us stay a bit longer whilst we waited for our taxi as she wasn't feeling well. What a lovely human being! We were welcomed with drinks and a hotel towel. Breakfast was amazing. Staff are really nice. Highly recommend.

8/10 Very good

Lovely boutique hotel
Perfect place to chill, excellent hosts and so relaxing, great pool. Shame no facility for making tea/coffee in room. Evening meal on first night a bit underwhelming, but excellent on second night- not sure which is norm. Very good breakfast. Wi-fi unreliable to non existent, even in public areas - but then that’s not why you stay here, although frustrating if you need to make forward plans. Would have stayed longer!!

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed every minute of it. The place is wonderful, the hosts and staff are very kind and attentive and the food is delicious. In sum, a perfect start of our holidays! We therefore highly recommend the Niyagama House and will definitely come back when we are in Sri Lanka again.

6/10 Good

service was good but prob won’t be back again
Looks nice and definitely out of the way which I already was aware of. However they did not have simple amenities like toothbrushes or bedroom slippers which you expect for paying so much. Even the fan was not working and they didn’t give us a duvet until we had to ask for it. Transport to the city area was not provided free which probably should have been. Appreciated the hospitality but won’t be back again..

Most idealic setting for a holiday get away
I stayed at the Niyagama House for 5 nights. It was initially supposed to be 4 nights but I was having such a great time I extended an extra night. A friend of mine had recommended it as a great place to unwind, so I knew what to expect, but what I experienced was a lot more than I expected. What a place! The house is set in a beautiful tea plantation. the rooms are beautifully decorated. It has a beautiful pool and a lovely dining area with amazing views of the beautifully manicured garden and the tea plantation. The food served everyday was delicious. The staff were very welcoming and accommodating, always aiming to provide a 1st class service. I didn’t get to meet the owner Elke as she was away. Her replacement was a lovely lady called Ewa. Ewa took the Morning 1.5-2 hour yoga/ meditation classes and a few evening we go on to the roof and experiment with different medication methods at dusk. The classes were all provided to accommodate the people in the class, they were fun and I learnt a lot from Ewa. She also provided a great Thai massage which I had never had before. I have a stressful life in London, and this stay was exactly what I needed to help me unwind, restored and refreshed. I would highly recommend Niyagama for a relaxed yoga and meditation retreat get away destination. It is also a 20 minutes tuk tuk ride from historic town Galle and also easy access to beaches.
