It has been a pleasure to stay at Raja's place. The room is nice, clean and very quiet. Raja and his wife are lovely and always available for a friendly chat or to give you suggestions. The house has a big terrace where you can enjoy the sunset or chill out. We definitely recommend Raja's place.

A brilliant place to stay in Negombo. Clean room, comfortable bed, good breakfast, and the best bathroom (shower) I had anywhere in Sri Lanka. The hosts were very kind in arranging me an early morning tuc tuc ride to the airport, which was not far at all.

My husband and I spent two fantastic days in Negombo hosted by the wonderful Charmaine and Raja. We made a last minute booking and Raja was very communicative ahead of our arrival, which put us at ease. The property its self is a brand new building which could only be described as a modern mansion. The room we stayed in was en suite, very clean and nicely presented. There was plenty of storage space and the bathroom was stocked with shampoo, conditioner and shower gel. Guests also have access to a very spacious terrace where you can watch both the sunset and the sunrise. The property is also in a fantastic location within walking distance of shops, bars, restaurants and the beach. Charmaine and Raja are a charming couple. They were brilliant company and answered my many questions. The breakfast served was also very tasty. Do not hesitate to book this accomodation. They are a new listing, therefore do not have many reviews but this is the perfect stay in Negombo.

We had a good stay at Raja's place after one month of travelling Sri Lanka. Raja was very communicative before we even got to Negombo and helped us with our route. He and his wife were very welcoming when we arrived and communication was always brilliant. They have a nice sun terrace to spend your time planning your trip ahead, watching the sunset or just enjoying the soft evening light. The room with ensuite bathroom was clean and comfy, with a massive fitted wardrobe, a table and a fan. The shower was one of the best we've had and the breakfast was simple but nice and nicely prepared by Raja's wife. They were very accomodating concerning the breakfast time when we had to leave quite early in the morning. The house is just inbetween the rather touristy area with loads of restaurants/shops and the more local city centre with the fish and vegetable market/railway station. The whole building was much bigger then we expected, there are security cameras here and there and the house rules were strict but reasonable and understood. The beach - which of course does not lie in Raja's area of responsibility - is not so nice, since there's a lot of waste scattered among the rocks and plants. If you have your travels ahead or are going back home via Bandanaraike International Airport, this place is good to finish or start your journey. Looking back, Negombo is much nicer to get used to the Sri Lankan way than Colombo, which might at first be a bit overexerting.
