I may recommend the place. if you are looking for the tourist facilities, a lot of shops and bars that is not the place for you. That is for the nature lovers and those you prefer to meet the real local culture and try origin local food. if you wish to go somewhere as a couple to relax and enjoy yourselves that is also a good place to stay for longer.
It was a perfect choice for relaxing holidays in Sri Lanka, quiet surroundings, only nature around, few tourists in the whole Nilaveli, almost not seen. Hotel is placed near a beautiful beach. However the beach is partially full of rubbish from the sea, the hotel staff takes care about their part. Tasty breakfast, possibly not very rich for some travellers, but for this climat perfect, and always fresh with delicious choice of fresh fruit. You may order the dinner or supper, which is delicious! Local fresh cuisines served by the cheerful staff (thanks to Raja we have had a few marvellous dinners). Although the staff does not speak very good english, they are very communicative and helpful. Young Tamil guy (do not remember the name now) is a perfect match as well. He was serving us the fresh juices to the beach, and also helping us to deliver some items form the store which was in the village. Our apartment with the garden view and terrace was really spacious, clean, and with a great double bed and all necessary facilities. There is no radio nor TV what we really loved, only the nature, birds and.. monkey in the neighbor garden ;) wifi in the main area working very well. I love the patio and the garden. and your own beach is just behind the fenster :) Sam the owner takes care about her visitors, she may organize a driver (perfect idea to have a one day tours around). Raja has also organised for us the fisherman to see the Pigeon Island (love that, and that is the one of the best places I have been snorkeling so far). To Trinco city that is around half an hour by tuk tuk or bus. Easy to get there.
Nearest shop is in the village, around half an hour walk, but who cares if you are in so beautiful place ;)
Road from Colombo airport may be not very convenient, 6-8 hours by car, so take the driver or just stay somewhere in the middle for a night.
Trincomalee region is noth east coast, and that is far place to visit the whole country staying only there. I advise that to stay for relax after hiking or after visiting the south. However one day trips to Sigiriya, Dambulla or Wilpattu national park are possible if you hire the car or the driver with the car. That costs, but it is worth it, if you have a limited amount of days in Sri Lanka.
