Had a wonderful holiday at this lovely place... Its everything you wish for and more.. Private but just a hop away from one of the best restaurants in the area.. The place might be names Skinny beach house but its extremely spacious and well equipped and clean... the beach has a natural pool made by a reef... The rooms were specious well equipped... The main bedroom has a great view of the beach and a lovely balcony.. perfect place to getaway for a few days!!!
The location is just outside of the busy town and in surrounded by all the beautiful beaches. I would recommend every single person to stay at this house! Make sure to check the restaurant next to it as well!
My husband and I stayed 2 nights at Skinny Beach in Jan 2017 and absolutely loved it. The master bedroom has fabulous views directly over the ocean with a private veranda to sit and drink tea or cocktails while you watch the beautiful sunset over the ocean. Air-conditioning and ceiling fans keep you cool and there's a cute private plunge pool on the back deck. Stairs lead directly from the deck on to the sandy beach with sun lounges for those who want to lie around working on their tan. Wijaya beach is very protected so it's a great spot for calm ocean swimming which my husband and I did every day we were there. The fairy lights and night time pool lights make for a lovely romantic atmosphere on the back deck and the tropical weather's so warm that swimming in the plunge pool at night is wonderfully refreshing.
Even though the Skinny Beach property is right on the main Galle/Matara road it was surprisingly quiet inside the house. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with great water pressure. The mattress and linens in the master bedroom were super soft and comfortable, like sleeping in puffy clouds. Heavy curtains in the bedroom help keep out the morning light for those of us who prefer to sleep late.
There's a fully equipped kitchen if you want to prepare your own food (or have the chef do it for you) and It's only a few steps down to Wijaya restaurant which does really delicious food in a casual beach-side atmosphere if you want to go out - the mushroom and bacon risotto I ate there was fantastic.
It's only a short tuk-tuk ride down to Galle if you want to visit the historic Galle Fort area. There's lots of other great restaurants and bars only a short tuk-tuk ride away too. Sudda and CJ and warm, friendly and welcoming hosts who will help you out with anything you need. We had a wonderful time, only wish we could have stayed longer. Very happy to recommend them.
My husband and I were blessed to stay at Skinny Beach, one of the best experiences during our time together in Sri Lanka.
So beautifully designed: stylish and luxurious, private and spacious. Amazing fully equipped kitchen, plunge pool, huge bedrooms.
Great location overlooking my favourite Wijaya beach, also heaps of places surrounding for tourist and local food.
The stay was only made better by hosts CJ and Sudda and their beautiful family. The team is super knowledgable about places to check out.
Perfect for a couple, family or a few friends- I can guarantee you won't want to leave your perfect little paradise :)
I stayed at Skinny Beach over a long weekend with my wife and a close friend. As the name suggested the structure of the building is skinny but when you enter the villa and wander around you realize, how craftily designed the living spaces are.
It has a lovely ground floor with a living area, kitchenette and outside mini pool with a sitting area, that is lazily gazing at the beaches of Unawatuna, just a jump and a hop away.
There are two rooms upstairs, which are very spacious and air conditioned.
The Skinny Beach is an example of the owners tasteful approach in creating a home away from home. Thanks CJ and Suddha for an amazing stay.
