First of all, Thanks to all the people who have helped us
The tsunami destroyed everything within minutes and we lost everything we had. It was terrible ... But lots of visitors, who had stayed with us over the years, got in touch and tried to help us in whichever way they could. It wasn't easy to keep going. But with a lot of support we succeded and could rebuild our little paradise ...

November 2017: Nicole, Mike mit Jari from Switzerland
We felt very comfortable with Amal and his family. They are very welcoming, helpful and generous. The view from the bungalow is beautiful, directly to the sea! 200 meters away it is ideal for swimming even with toddler. We even saw a big turtle and some fish. We would definitely recommend this place!

August 2014: Martina and Benno
At the end of our two and a half weeks round trip through Sri Lanka we spent another four days in Amal's Guesthouse and you can be sure, there is no place nearer to the beach. It is a simple but very clean accomodation, marvellously located. We could see the beach from our balcony. We were warmly welcomed by a very nice family and were spoiled. Whenever we wanted to we were brought to our destination in a tuk-tuk. We were served the meals according to our wishes and we were given useful advice. We highly recommend this accomodation to everybody!!

We were mid-November 7 days in Amal's Guest House and were surprised at the small Guest House right on the beach. We were very warmly welcomed by the father and felt very comfortable. The location was great and you could see from the balcony onto the sea. These days we have been spoiled by Amal's food. Amal and his family gave a lot of effort so we are doing well and we felt at ease.Thanks for the final 7 days Dalawella, we enjoyed it very much!

We got a tip for Amal's Guesthouse from our Swiss friends. So glad we discovered this small paradise. Amal and his family did everything for us. Cooked amazing meals, which we asked Amal to make for us. They deserve our best wishes, as they had such a devastating experience losing their livelihood. We stayed for 3 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Totally relaxed before we went back to the UK.

Having visited Dalawella several times, this was my first stay at Amal's Guest House. With the sea a pebbles throw away, the guest house literally being on the gorgeous beach, everything from the room with breakfast and evening meals catered for if required to the cleanliness and hospitality of the owners was perfect.
Amal and his lovely family cannot be faulted and I would recommend this guest house to anyone from those wishing for either peace, quiet & privacy in a beautiful location to visitors wanting to view more of the Sri Lankan scenery & culture, which Amal will gladly arrange for you if wanted.
Having not been home 24 hours I'm already missing your beautiful home.
Sent with a special hello to Manuli, Amal's delightful daughter!

Marianne & Christian from Vienna, Austria, March 2013
We have been from March 11th until March 14th 2013 at Amals’s Guesthouse, which we’ve found online in the word wide web. We’ve been very lucky, that at this time a room has been available. Best place on the beach, we  felt like Robinson on his island… Especially we loved the food – breakfast an dinner have been soooo delicious!!! Thank you very very much to the hole family! Good luck for the plans of revitalising your Guesthouse! We are looking forward to come again to this gorgious place!

Hi Amal, Thanks a lot for my great sweet holidays 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 in your fantastic place. Thanks for your delicious singhala foods, specialy the lovely breakfast and i missed that really in Swiss.
I recommend this place is ideal for any kind of traveller because of great hospitality,nice view of the sea in balcony. I am looking forward for my retourn back to my second home.
Specially greets to Manuli :-)

I spent my holydays in 2006, 2009, 2010 and 2012 in Amal's Guesthouse at the beach of Dalawella and stayed each time appr. 3 weeks. I felt very much at home in this familiar atmosphere. The view from the balcony is fantastic. I appreciated most that the rooms in the first floor are very safe because of the gate locked through the night. I recommend this place specially to women travelling alone!

I spent a few days in Amal's Guesthouse in 2006. The beach was enchanting, the room was clean und the family of the host was very welcoming und friendly. I would recommend this address to any traveller looking for a cosy place at the beach at a very fair price.
