First things first: This cabana was the absolute BEST hotel/guesthouse experience my partner and I have ever had! We felt like home from the very first moment of our arrival at the Galawatta Beach Resort. Everyone was friendly in a way that my partner and I never had really experienced in another accommodation. The staff gives you the feeling of being very special and they try to do everything possible to give you the highest comfort that you can ever ask for. Everything you order is served on your own private Cabana terrace and you won't find a better menu outside the resort. Also the ayurvedic treatments I received were absolutely amazing. My partner had his 30th birthday when we were at Galawatta, so Viki and the staff helped me out with organizing a very delicious birthday cake, and make him I guess one of the bigger surprises of his life (: Besides that, we went diving a lot and the resort organized our transfers from and to the diving center. The Resort itself has about 4 cabanas which are directly located at the front row of the beach and another building a little more away from the beach (like 40m). Only thing thats between your personal breakfast table and the sea is a small fence and 5m of beach. And now comes the cherry on the top of the ice cup. The beach where the resort is located is home to some giant turtles who come to the beach every morning and stay there during the day. That means that you can actually swim next to these amazing animals and enjoy watching wildlife giant turtles. One more word to the staff, because they really deserve it. Before we arrived we asked via text message if there is a possibility to extend our stay. We got a very quick respond that this will absolutely be no problem. We had a lovely stay at the Galawatta beach cabanas and hope to see you guys again! <3
I guess, the only thing that I can write here, is the fact that we were too late to book this hotel four our entire stay at the Dalawella beach (:
Beautiful place and excellent staff! Very accommodating. Thank you so much!
Staying at Galawatta Beach Resort was a great experience. Staff is extremely helpful and always available for anything you might need. As we enjoyed staying there so much, we decided to return at the end of our vacation. Management did everything in their power to find us a room even though most of the rooms were already booked. Food is amazing and for good price. Better and cheaper than in restaurants near by. Beach has a natural pool because of coral reef blocking the waves. There are turtles swimming in that pool waiting for you to feed them with sea grass. Overall, amazing place to spend you vacation.
The location was picturesque, stunning and so beautiful. The proximity to the beach was amazing, with gorgeous views from the cabana's. Staff were very attentive and friendly. Super helpful, and professional!
The location here is very pleasant - the ocean is virtually on your doorstep with a lagoon that provides a really nice place to swim unlike any of the surrounding areas (would recommend swimming early morning). The area is frequented by sea turtles too. Admittedly it’s quite a busy section of the beach but you have the advantage of the use of a fenced area with plenty of sun beds, seating areas and swings to relax on. You can also order anything you’d like to the cabana and the staff are very helpful and friendly.
The accomodation is quite simplistic. Any problems we had were resolved with an understanding and friendliness from staff which was appreciated.
