Customer Reviews


At Ketature Beach House we have made some super nice families and friends who have stayed with us and come back each year. 

Some have very kindly helped us with our marketing and taken some lovely pictures, made videos and written travel blogs. It’s great for us to build a family and hopefully, when you return you may see some familiar faces.

We work with Surf South Sri Lanka and Google reviews mainly avoiding the more commercial booking platforms.

Very nice place. If you are looking for a quiet place, it's perfect. I loved the design. The brakefest is included and great. It's 500 meters from the main road so it's good if you have a motorbike or tuktuk driver that knows this hotel. Thank you 🙌

A great place to stay. This lovely family are very friendly & helpful. Clean and comfortable rooms and so close to Ketature Beach, a small cove just 20m away. There is a small beach bar there being run by the family too 🌈

The nicest beach in SL, correct service, not the fancy place but you have to spend your time at the beach!

What a gem. In a quick changing Sri Lanka this place is full of love and good food. We stayed here in January. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The beach is a dream with almost no one there but some people are comin through for one of Sammie’s curries or delicious juices. You can have a nice beach walk to a nearby beach town. The town is a tuk tuk ride away. It’s not set next to the main road so bless your ears. We traveled with a 4 old and intended to stay for 5 nights, we ended up staying for 12 :) it was just perfect. Sweetest hosts and their family!!!!!

We had the most amazing time here. The premises are clean and comfortable. The family was amazing. We were here during and a few days after the bombings in the north and we didnt feel unsafe. The family made sure we had the best time. Siryanis food is also amazing. The best meals we had in Sri Lanka were here.

Amazing beach amazing food and most of all amazing family, thanks.

If you wanna wake up among the jungles listening to birds singing and sound of the surf... If you wanna swim or surf in ocean right before exclusive local breakfast with fresh tropical fruits... Laying whole day long on a lonely beach... Exploring reef while snorkeling... If you wanna get total relaxation... Visit Sami's and Sriyani's Ketature Beach House. Hospitality, kindness, heartfulness... We feel here like at mother's home. It's like a flying on a clouds, sleeping in a silk. We love this place, it will remain forever in our hearts. Hope to stay here for a long long time.

My favorite place to stay in Sri Lanka. Right on the beach, quiet and run my the most wonderful family. Plus the home cooked meals are fantastic. Thank you so much for having us.

We were so happy that we stumbled upon this place whilst in Sri Lanka. Away from the busyness of Weligama with basically its own little sandy beach were you can sunbathe and relax after an early morning surf. It sits between lots of the good surf breaks; many of them walking distance along the coastal path, or through the friendly village in the opposite direction. But the family were definitely the highlight. So friendly and welcoming, funny and chatty, and really caring. We were spoiled with great food, hammocks and endless coconuts and were made to feel right at home. We didn't want to leave!

This was one of our very favorite places that we stayed during our month-long trip in Sri Lanka. Ketature is exactly what you want from a guest house: a homey vibe, as much interaction with the amazing host family as you want, the most delicious home-cooked meals, other friendly travelers who are just as happy to be there as you are, and even an adorable dog and cat. The private beach is a stone's throw (although this private beach is not the best for swimming...but there are plenty of those nearby), and there are peaceful neighborhoods to meander through and explore. Our stay here was a welcome relief from the tourist crush of Weligama and Mirissa, and the hosts were some of the friendliest and most accommodating that we ever could have hoped for.

Sriyani and Sami are two amazing people/hosts. Their place is located right near a small beach where you can relax and swim and not far from great surf spots where you can walk or take a tuk tuk to. The place is wonderful and their food is delicious. We will come again next time. They make you feel at home !

such an amazing family to stay with. they have different types of rooms and an apartment. this is a family stay environment next to a secluded beach, perfect for living the sri Lankan experience, with great cooking andfruit juices thrown in.

Lovely family run guest house right near the beach. Can see why people stay here for weeks at a time. The beach is secluded, although pretty rough at high tide. We hung out with monkeys in the treetops and saw some green turtles feeding near the rocks at sunset. Curly the dog was an added bonus. The rice and curry was delicious!

it doesn't get any better than this - a beautiful bay almost of your own, a great house, and above all the loveliest-imaginable hosts. It feels like you're invited by a family, and that's not far from the truth. Sammy and Sriyani & the kids are awesome. We had such a good time, it was very hard to leave once the time came. Already making plans for our return next year!

We stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. Away from the hustle and bustle of most of the south coast tourist scene with an almost private swimming beach practically on the doorstep. Awesome location with great surfing breaks a short walk away. Decent food options nearby but the hosts are also good cooks and bring you coffee or tea in the morning, breakfast included, dinner (rice and curry, fish, pasta) if you request it. The best part is the wonderful Sri Lankan family that runs and lives at their guest house. They are absolute gems and made us feel so welcome, joyfully played with our kids, attended cheerfully to our every needs, negotiated local prices for rides and services, and made us fall in love with them.
