It's not the fanciest place, but the location & the service of the staff will make up for it. They have 6 rooms. 4 of which are family rooms (quadruples) & the other 2 are doubles.

Make sure you get the quadruple or the double with the beach view, because it's simply stunning. It's just above the reception/dining area & has a view above the pool & up to the beach.

The staff is always helpful & helps you with your small personalised requests. You notice & feel the difference at the place, because they're able to & willingly cater to your needs, unlike in big hotels.

We stayed during my sister's birthday & the staff went above & beyond to make sure she had a memorable day. Thanks a lot for that.

The prices are also affordable compared to other big hotels & you can't beat the location. Right in the middle of the Weligama bay. I'm definitely going again!

A beautiful beach front hotel with friendly service. We booked a family room and it was superb. Enough space for our 3 kids who are 10, 8 & 6 years, there was an attached room with 2 single beds which was comfortable accommodated.

This is a beach front hotel with about 6 rooms.
Two families in our group stayed here in the two-sea view room, during last weekend.

This is my second stay in Weligama and first time at the Parangi Weligama Bay.
Great food, extremely friendly & flexible staff and the location made our stay truly memorable. Been a small hotel there is a better accessibility to staff and their friendly attitude undoubtably add on to your pleasant experience. Food they served was great and had a good variety.

Hotel has direct access to a long Weligama beach and few other hotels, two small fishing settlements are located in walking distance.

After very long time we used public transport for this trip (to come here from Colombo via Matara). Coming from Matara to Weligama was bit complicated to us as we were less prepared on travel arrangment. However, when returning we got advise from the staff to make arrangements for our return journey. However, access to hotel is not difficult and it is adjoining main road.

Everyone in our group shared the feeling that we should visit this place again.

I was at Parangi for three days with my friends. We were here for three days. Parangi is a beautiful cozy villa with a stunning view of its pool and the beach. I was in love with its interior. We booked the quadruple room and the double room with the sea view. The quadruple room was quite big and spacious. Even the bathroom was very spacious and have been designed properly in a way that it won't get wet other than the bathing cubicle. The room had a 59" TV which really added a value to the room. The two single beds in the quadruple room was in a partitioned area with more privacy is really a good concept. When you book the 2 rooms with the sea view you will get more privacy with easy access to the lobby, dinning areas, pool and the beach.

The place was super clean including their pool. The pool was quite big and deep enough for a good swim. The beach was right in front of the villa and a perfect place for a sea bath.

The service was also good. Indunil from the staff was the only person who was always with a smile and with a good sense of hotel staff etiquette. He made sure we were having a comfortable and relaxing stay and we felt homely thanks to him. His service was almost equal to a 5 star hotel.

We ordered rice and curry for the first day lunch and it was exceeding our expectation. There was a big range of curries and the food was so lovely. Sadly every other meal except the said lunch was not good at all. Chef was very demanding and not flexible at all when it comes to ordering food. We were not given a menu and asked to request the food we like for all 3 meals but chef was always reluctant to make the food we asked saying it's hard to find ingredients like fish, prawns and cuttlefish which surprised us as this was in Weligama.

Even though we were on FB, we had to pay LKR 1800 extra for a BBQ dinner and it was such a disappointment. True that it was raining in the evening and we ordered a late dinner around 9.30pm. It was not raining at all after 7.30pm but chef didn't put an effort at all to set up the BBQ station. Instead he served us a half baked chicken poured with some BBQ sauce which doesn't fit the standard of theme resorts at all. What surprised us more is all 5 of us got bad tummy, a skin irritation and sick after that so called BBQ dinner. So food was the only negative side of our stay at Parangi.

This place allows BYOB. Rest of the staff other than the chef was good and supportive. No matter how much we loved the place, we will surely not visit this place again just because of the food as we don't want to be sick after a good holiday.

Parangi was our little paradise in Weligama!

The sea view family room was amazing. It was big enough for the four of us. It had AC, a big bathroom, and a very nice balcony with a supreme sea view.
The property hade a small but lovely pool and it was directly on the beach. It layed in perfect geagraphic position close to surf schools, the town center, and Kurumba.

The staff were really friendly and just after a couple of days we felt treated like family. They had amazing food and the breakfast was totally amazing. We wanted to have the Sri Lankan breakfast and they made it. We loved it!

Thank you Lakmal, Jayanath, and Suresh. You are the best 🙏🏻

A perfect stay!

This hotel has a lovely beachside location - just a very short stone's throw to the most wonderful golden sands and the Indian Ocean. This is a surfers and swimmers paradise. The hotel is beautifully decorated and furnished, our air-conditioned room was airy and very comfortable. The attentive staff provided excellent food and poolside drinks. We loved our stay there and would certainly return. Richard & Aileen

I didn’t stay in the hotel. I walked in off the beach, having seen their Cafe Surf sign. I had a relaxing ice cold coffee and returned the following day for the most amazing breakfast, which was incredible value for money. Fresh fruit juice, fresh fruits, omelette with sausages, potatoes and mushrooms on the side, toast and jams and pancakes with syrup. All accompanied by water and Sri Lankan coffee. Service is excellent, staff are lovely and the view across the pool and to the Ocean is spectacular. I’ll be back for a final breakfast before I leave Sri Lanka. Worth looking for, it sits on the beach between the Marriot and Greenroom surfcamp.

This Hotel was absolut amazing! Very clean, top Beach, Big Room, very beautiful Garden far away from the noisy road, top pool !! And finally best food in Weligama !! You feel like you live in your own property with an amazing view to the sea.

The staff and the cooks prepared every meal for us according to our wishes and it was the best food we ate in Sri Lanka. Don't let the small menu put you off; if you want something specific, ask or pre-order a tsg. the service is excellent and they will fulfill your wish.

At least the staff makes the difference. The staff of Parangi Weligama was the best we ever had in 35years of Sri Lanka traveling. Special thanks to Lakmal and Suresh and all the others. ❤️ Now, after our return to Germany our Kids Somea and Ella always asking for you and want to have pancakes 😃. The staff at Parangi were very lovely, they were very on point, but not intrusive, the took care when a kid was close to the pool. They make you feel best in every situation. It was just an amazing experience at Parangi Weligama! Thank you very much 🙏🏽
