I was staying at Nirmala's bungalow in august for 4 days and I have very good memories from that stay.The manager of the bungalow was helpful and very protective.He even organized a one-day trip with tuk-tuk for me since I was traveling alone and I didn't know what places should I visit.The driver took me to the most popular,touristic places around Hikkaduwa and he also drove to Galle.I would highly recommend the place to everyone who are looking a cozy room with great service and close to the beach(it's just on the other side of the road)
"Peaceful and serene setting with a colourful evening sea view."

Rathnagiri is a place where you will have a combination of nature and authentic Sri Lankan food. The charming beach view just across the road and the ample garden with a lawn is an ideal setting for relaxation. No matter whether you are old or young Rathnagiri will guarantee the value of your money you spend there. A place just few minutes drive away from the main tourist hub of Hikkaduwa gave the place a value additon blessed with calm and reposefull surrounding. Cosy room interior enhance your romantic stay. Nirmala and her huby created a a great place . Thanks Nirmala for the special sea food you served

We got a great opportunity to stay two days in Rathnagiri which is wonderful place for relaxing with the warmest hospitality of Nirmala and the family. The place is very calm and quite which doesn't bring us unfamiliarity at anytime and enjoyed lot with the real feeling of a trip but all the times felt that this is like our own. My son, wife and myself enjoyed lot with sea breeze and the sea bathing which is very enjoyable and safe with clean sea water. There were beautiful scenes in front of us in the sun shining and sun setting in the sea. That was wonderful!!! It is very convenient to access to the place as the place is facing to Gall Road, just 4km away from ambalangoda Town, where you can find all your requirements with nice supermarkets. Transport cost is very low as all the main bus routes and railways are close by. There is easy access to many tourist destinations such as Hikkaduwa, Galle, Kaluthara, Kande Viharaya from the Rathnagiri We enjoyed with very lovely traditional foods prepared by Nirmala being very committed, with the tastes of real down south foods in Sri Lanka. Her commitment for the house keeping and preparing meals added big values to the service. As an educated person she maintained very responsible and caring relationship with us. After two days very cordial hospitality we returned through the Galle highway which is around 15KM away from the place, but through very good accessing roads, And came to Kottawa within around 40 minutes with nice driving experience. My whole family enjoyed lot and always appreciate the place and the service of the Nirmala and family. This new year vacation was very fruitful because of the journey and next time too hope to select the Rathnagiri as one of our travel destination for new and cold sea breeze and fresh sea bath. We appreciate all the efforts of Nirmala and wish all the success!!!

We stayed at Nirmala's bungalow in March 2013 and have really enjoyed it. I like to travel and I always prefer to stay at homes/apartments, because it gives me the sense and feeling of how local people live. Staying at Nirmala's house was a great choice (which was actually made by my friends :), partly because I have never met such a friendly and caring host and partly because for me as a writer it was very interesting to speak with Nirmala about her life and her family, about traditions and habits of people in Sri-Lanka. I highly recommend you to choose Nirmala when you some day come to Sri-Lanka. P.S. Nirmala's cooking is great and there is only one problem: Nirmala cooks with great improvisation and it means that you can never repeat what she has done. P.S. Nirmala helps to organise your trip around the island so don't worry if you haven't planned everything in advance. Read more
