Location

Soul & Surf Sri Lanka nestles on jungly river banks a few minutes inland from the surf rich and beautiful beaches of the south west coastline of Sri Lanka. We’re close enough to get to the surf spots easily yet far enough away from the tourist heavy coast road with it’s insane buses and cheek-by-jowl villas to feel like you’re in actually in Sri Lanka.

We’re just 25 minutes from Galle, the historic, colonial fort town, with it’s stylish range of shops, restaurants, antique stores and cafes. About 15-20 minutes from Weligama and Mirissa, the most popular hang-out beaches of the region (although we can point you in the direction of some other great beach hang-outs if that’s your bag). And these days with the new highway completed we’re just about 2 hours from Colombo airport.

Our immediate location is on the outskirts of a rural village on an island within a coastal river delta region. It’s lush, tropical and teeming with wildlife. Although nothing too toxic or scary thanks goodness.


Getting to us

We can help you to arrange a bespoke taxi for you on arrival day from the airport, or wherever you may be. Just send us your arrival details and we can book in your taxi for you. We can also suggest a taxi share from the airport if a few of you arrive on the same flight. Please note, this is not a service we operate, we just connect you with a trusted local taxi company. Please pay the driver directly.

The previous week’s guests leave on Saturday morning, leaving our team a short turn-around and maintenance time. So if your flight lands earlier in the day, please note that we’re not able to receive guests earlier than check in time at 3pm. We can still arrange a taxi for you to Ahangama, where we can recommend some places for you to spend the day, grab a bite & relax by a pool. Or if you’d prefer to book a hotel in Colombo, we can arrange for a taxi to pick you up later in the afternoon.

If you’d like to make your own way to us, just drop us a line at  to enquire about directions.
Your room will be ready by 3pm, or earlier if we can possibly do it, so you can wait in the lounge if you arrive early.

Guest Reviews

I got back from my holiday at Soul and Surf on Monday (still slightly in shock to be back in the cold and rain!).  I wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone there for making it such a brilliant week and to let you know how awesome all the staff are (I’m sure […]
