    Amazing Haven

    Amazing family run haven with exceptional friendly service; minutes from a stunningly wild beach. Lovely swimming pool set in exquisite gardens. Add to this the best Sri Lankan food we've had in our month long trip and you have unbeatable place to stay. Cannot recommend Sankarest highly enough. Many, many thanks to Sunita, Sanka, Surangi, Thamale and Koni fot making our stay so memorable.

    Best place to stay in Sri Lanka

    We had an absolutely fantastic 5 days at Sanka Rest. The place is wonderful and the food is definitely the best we tasted in the whole of Sri Lanka. Everyone, Koni, Sunita, Sanka Thamali, Surangi and Sameen were so kind and helpful it felt like they were family! The rooms are huge and nicely decorated with lovely seating areas outside. The pool is spotless and refreshing set in a lovely garden. The property is really well situated one minutes walk from a great beach and you can be in town in less than five minutes by tuk tuk or bus. The tuk tuk is on site and driven by Sanka or Sameen. We originally booked for 3 days and ended up staying for 5 days and it would have been more but it was at the end of our month away. Everything about this place is brilliant,the food is yummy, the setting wonderful and the really friendly hosts - thank you again.

    Sankarest is the perfect guesthouse with the best food on the island. Rooms are stylish, immaculately clean and arranged to ensure guests have privacy on the spacious upper and lower verandas. The pool is as clean as the guesthouse and surrounded by beautiful plants. The beach is just down the lane. The hosts are fluent in English and German. They are there to assist and they take the time to answer questions.They have a tuktuk for local trips or for a day trip to Galle. We took a taxi directly from the airport and used this guesthouse to recover from jetlag...and then stayed four days. If you are not looking for a spot to relax, I would still recommend having dinner there (call in advance).

    Sankarest villa

    We spent 5 great days in the pension. Despite the initial embarrassment, this is not a classic beach holiday, we appreciated the excellent food and service including the comfort and tranquility of the pool and the lovely garden.

    Absolutely perfect! We enjoyed our stay here so much that we came back and spend the first and the last days of our vacation at Sankarest. The proximity to CMB airport makes this place great to start and end your vacation (2h from the airport). Sanka and his family are amazing people and did everything they could to make us happy. Sanka drove us around with his TukTuk, showed and explained, answered all sorts of questions and showed us a sea turtle laying eggs at night. His mother Sunita cooked the best food we could find in 5 weeks Sri Lanka. She even took us to the market, found exactly the kind of fish we asked for our little daughter and showed us how to cook her wonderful curries. She went out of her way to make our little picky eater daughter happy, preparing her special dishes most of the time. The beds are comfy, rooms nicely furnished, they do basic cleaning every day. We especially loved the great and clean pool and beautiful relaxing garden. The place is very close to the beach (4 min walk). It is beautiful but not very good for swimming but there are plenty more beaches you can quickly reach by TukTuk. Kosgoda is a quiet area which was exactly why we chose to stay here. You can easily reach the touristic areas by TukTuk or bus in 15 min. There are plenty of things to see and do in the area. You can hear the street and the train however, if you close the door and windows at night it wont keep you from sleeping. We will definitely come back here on our next visit!

    Прекрасно

    Останавливались вдвоем на две недели в феврале 2019.Все очень хорошо.Отель содержит семья.Все очень стараются чтобы обеспечить достойный отдых постояльцам.Много живности вокруг: обезьяны, попугаи,бурундуки,черепахи выходят откладывать яйца по ночам на пляж.Из минусов-отдаленность от цивилизации, пляж из за волнения океана не всегда пригоден для плавания, но хозяева обеспечивают собственным транспортом ,за дополнительную плату, для поездок в Бентоту на пляж и шопинг.Очень дорогой алкоголь.Запасайтесь для кого есть в этом необходимость.Питание достойное , но достаточно дорого.

    Idyllisch & familiär

    Das Team um Koni, Sunita, Sanka und Surangi ist herzlich, offen und macht alles damit man sich wohl fühlt. Das Essen ist vorzüglich. Der kleine Pool ist sauber und traumhaft im Garten gelegen. Wir hatten ein Zimmer im oberen Stock und somit einen tollen Sitzplatz mit schönen antiken Möbeln nur für uns. Wer eher ein ruhiges Hotel in familiärer Führung sucht ist hier genau richtig. Wir können nichts aussetzen und werden auf unserer nächsten Sri Lanka Reise bestimmt wieder hier buchen! Können das Hotel nur weiter empfehlen - es lohnt sich auf jeden Fall!
