Skinny Beach House Living

Skinny Beach House is the epitome of a modern bohemian beach abode. The narrow building extends to a private deck with a sparkling plunge pool, which in turn is followed by the golden sands of Dalawella Beach.

Living Room

Skinny Beach House’s living areas are housed on the ground floor and separated from the poolside terrace by glass doors. The room features three white sofas and as the owners are not themselves big fans of television, a 50-inch flatscreen TV can be set up on request. Skinny Beach House also includes an iPod dock.

Dining Room

Skinny Beach House’s dining table is located on a level above the living room. The wooden table can comfortably seat six guests. The dining area is followed by a well-equipped kitchen. Good news for the caffeine addicts: the kitchen includes a Nespresso coffee maker.

Garden & Pool

Skinny Beach House features a refreshing plunge pool measuring at 2 x 3 metres. There are two sun loungers and a parasol on the poolside terrace, which is beautifully fringed by palm trees. On a level below, there are comfy beanbags and from here, you only need to take a few steps down to touch the sands of Dalawella Beach.

Skinny Beach House has two bedrooms, both furnished with a king-sized bed. The beds are draped in 400-thread count linen.

    “Fantastic location by the beach”

    Lovely house just a few steps to the beach – and what a beach! Perfect for swimming, relaxing and it was just magic to see and even swim with the giant turtles just outside the house! Breakfasts where great and dinners prepared by our hosts – so flexible and nice people!

    We did a safari which was fanastic, surfing in the warm water, great food in restaurant close by. Our 10 days passed very fast and we want to come back to the house again – soon!

    “Complete relaxation paradise”

    Cannot highly recommend this beach house enough, although don’t want to in case it gets too busy to allow me to re-book!

    We spent lazy days on the deck watching the turtles in the surf and then swimming with them in the lagoon at high tide. Sasia and Prohert did a remarkable job looking after us and could not do more to ensure we had the perfect vacation.

    The villa is really practical with all the space and facilities you need although I never moved too far from the bean bags on the deck!

    Cannot wait to return, only thing I would mention that you would need to be highly vigilant if traveling with toddlers.

    “Incredible beach house on beautiful Dalawella beach!”

    Incredible beach house on Dalawella beach! The house is beautifully designed with multiple levels; when you sit at the breakfast table it feels as though the sea is swirling right outside. High ceilings means the house stays cool as the breeze from the sea comes through.

    From the outside deck the beach is literally at your feet! Soft sand and beautiful clear water. As the beach is away from the main tourist town of Unawatuna, it’s much quieter with less tourists – it feels more private. There are only a few restaurants here, though we preferred to make our own lunch omelettes in the house.

    Bedrooms and living room are comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bed is perfectly soft, we slept so well! Hot water showers that are spacious, and a balcony on the main bedroom overlooking the sea. There’s a small plunge pool outside, perfect for a dip after swimming in the sea or lying in the sun.

    Breakfast is excellent. We enjoyed the Sri Lankan breakfast of egg hoppers, string hoppers, dhal, curry and fresh fruits. Good coffee too. Definitely recommend trying it!

    The house is just a tuk tuk ride away from the lovely Galle town, Unawatuna which has more restaurants and bars, and Weligama for good surfing and a different beach scene.

    Don’t miss this beach house!

    “The Ultimate Hideaway at Skinny Beach House Sri Lanka”

    How enticing it is for your eyes and blissful for your soul to have found a place away from home but just like home with the most exotic locations, super-comfortable accommodation and excellent hospitality at tow! Yes, I just talked about the Skinny Beach resort in Galle, Sri Lanka.

    Waking up to slide the curtains and feel ample of light, treat the eyes with white sandy beaches and calm blue sky can be a feeling that is difficult to express in words! Our exotic holiday in Sri Lanka and the stay with Skinny was one of its kind.

    Warm welcome and excellent hospitality by our dear host – Cecilia Jensen. She is the owner of this resort but is so down-to-earth and amicable. She welcomed us with so much love and affection, that it feels like home away from home!

    This resort was a perfect nest to spend lazy afternoon and pamper oneself in the relaxed evenings. With all the facilities by your side – from free WiFi connection to quick home-services, from boastful bathroom units to warm-cosy mattresses it has to be your ultimate hideaway in Sri Lanka. I am so glad that we chose this place for our stay! Absolutely contended.
