We spent the last 3 days of our Sri Lankan holiday here at Drifters and after a hectic week, the tranquillity was fabulous.

Lalith was a fabulous host and his hotel staff could not have been more friendly and more helpful. We had a great 1st storey room with a balcony overlooking the beach. A fabulous place to sit when the evening thunder and lightning storms passed through.

The restaurant food was a limited choice, but great non the less. My daughter would have omelette for breakfast, while my wife had fruit and I could have curry- what could be better ?!?

There is a small shady pool in the heart of the hotel, but with the beach on your doorstep, we didn't get a chance to use it. There was even WiFi available in the public areas of the hotel.

Sri Lanka is such a beautiful country and when we next visit, we will definitely return to Drifters.

Awesome place!

Loved the place!

Stayed at Drifters for 2 nights and payed only 2600/- (meals excluded) which was a really good deal!
Having tea in the morning facing the beach is the best feeling.

All you need is the beach and the swimming pool to relax and have fun at the same time!

I want to come back
KamilChar... [TA], , Bratislava, Slovakia

Really enjoyed our vacation there. Actually we wanted to travel around the island but after three days we decided to make just a three days trip and came back. The swimming pool was incredible, very clean and refreshing. The beach is close to the surfing spot, waves were great, it was always fun to go to the water. Sometimes I find myself day dreaming about the beach just like girl in Groove Armada video - My Friend. Do I need to say more?

Loved it
Steve P [TA], , Bristol, United Kingdom

We stayed in the hotel drifters across the road as it was cheaper, but still got to use the pool in the main hotel. The reception team were really friendly, the outside beach area was very clean and tidy. Was on,y going to spend 3 nights here but stayed for 6 as really enjoyed the atmosphere

Lovely for relaxing!

I had a lovely stay at Drifters. The owner is really accommodating to flexible vacation schedules and can give great suggestions about where to go for services and sightseeing when asked. Having a seaside balcony room was great to spend a rainy hour or two reading and relaxing.

Room Tip: Seaside balcony is the way to go!

Unbeatable service
Napoleon... [TA], ,

Spent an initial 2 nights here then extended it due to excellent service and facilities of the venue.
Beach is right in front and the pool enables you to get a couple of laps in when you are not crashing into the surf. Staff were always on hand with the owner paying special attention and sorting out any of our needs. Cannot recommend high enough

Кристина... [TA], ,

You can find anything you need here. The room with a balcony for 2 was the best on the seaside. The staff is funny and helpful, same as the owner Lalith. If you love surfing, it is just on the surfing beach. If you don't like the waves, they have a pool. The food was also nice, the place is quiet at night and nothing will disturb you. I hope we will come back one day, highly recommended!

Room Tip: The best rooms are those 2 with comfortable balconies just for you

Perfect Getaway
david r [TA], , Braintree, United Kingdom

This hotel was recommended by our daughter who used to live in Sri Lanka working for an NGO.We are both in our 60's and were a little concerned at what we might find. We should not have been What we got was the best beach holiday we have had. The rooms were simple but very clean and quiet. The food was very good especially the curries which consist of 4/5 dishes,which the owner cooked for us. When we explained that we did not like sambol ( a coconut dish) he produced alternatives the next time.
One literally steps out of the back of the restaurant onto the beach and the sea is only a few feet away.Go out the front door and there is an abundance of shops and alternative restaurants and bars.
Most of the rooms are in a courtyard round the very clean pool but there are a couple with balconies that face the sea. Get one if you can.
The owner and all the staff were really helpful. Can recommend a trip round the walls of Galle Fort at dusk which was organised for us.

Great hospitality

We stayed for 9 days. Lalith the owner went out of his way to make us comfortable. He is eager to help everyone at the hotel. He organized trips, hotel pick-ups and drop offs and late check-outs. He is very reasonable with his prices. The hotel offers excellent food, no need to eat any where else! The hotel offers a beautiful beach. The location of the hotel is exactly on the best part of the Hikkaduwa beach. You will find surfing schools next to the hotel and the staff of the surfing school also acts as lifesavers, so no need to worry! I would highly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: The rooms facing the pool (ground floor) are little loud when people swimming early in the morning o...
