Property Description

Welcome to Dream Lanka Surf House!

No matter where you are in the world, do you love to feel at home? Do you yearn for personality and character, rather than superficial, soulless, “conveyor belt” experiences? Do you appreciate natural authenticity rather than “plastic comfort”? Are you eco conscious with a desire to protect our beautiful planet? Are you looking for an abundance of friendly hospitality, delicious local cuisine and drinks, qualified surf instructors, a great location and attractive deals? Then Dream Lanka Surf House is where your heart is.

Located right on the beach in Dewata, a place renowned for being the best spot for both first time and intermediate surfers. With a north/north-westerly wind and waves ranging from 3 to 5 feet, held up to 2M +/6M+, the conditions for beginners are perfect and our lessons will guide you through the basics of safe surfing, how to stand up on the board and catch the waves, turning techniques etc.

Dewata bay is also very safe for children and the elderly, so we can ensure unforgettable fun with us for all, but if you fancy discovering another spot for surfing or exploring (Hikkaduwa, Cabanas, Weligama or Unawatuna) we’ll be more than happy to transport you.

Our house has its own beach bar and restaurant as well as providing 18 beds in 2 dormitory rooms and 2 separate deluxe rooms with double beds, extra bed and ensuite bathrooms. We also have a funky open veranda. An ideal spot for relaxing whilst enjoying an amazing view of the Indian Ocean.

Join us at our restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner or the day long buffet, where we offer both local and international cuisine, have daily special offers, and focus on healthy food sourced from local producers where possible.

The supermarket is a mere 2 minutes walk away from the property and Galle city reachable on foot in just a 10 minutes stroll.

If you wish to do a little exploring we are also more than happy to organize a trip where one of our tour guides will escort you to wherever you desire within Sri Lanka. These tours can be arranged after arrival and we’re always on hand to help devise a detailed excursion plan.

Our primary objective is to satisfy our guests needs and desires to the best of our ability.

Please contact us, let us know what you’re looking for and we can build a plan to suit your needs together. You can request pricing information for any package without any obligation to purchase.

Our only request to you is not to bring in or purchase any plastic bags or bottles in Sri Lanka in an attempt to support the local peoples quest to keep Sri Lanka plastic free. We also offer free drinking water for our guests who help us in this respect this initiative through the purchase of our dedicated aluminium Dream Lanka Water Flask to be used throughout your stay and beyond.

We speak English, German, Hungarian and a little Russian :)

See you in Dream Lanka!

    We chose to stay here instead of central Galle because we wanted to chill out more. Glad we did. The main road is busy but just behind the row of buildings is the beach, surf shops, and places to eat. Lovely welcoming hosts and staff. The hostel restaurant and chill out zone is literally meters from the water. Spaces are cleaned constantly. They have surf board hire and an excellent surf instructor Randy who was super helpful in correcting some issues I had. Would stay again.

    Unreal hostel. Right on the beach in Katugoda just outside Galle. Lovely bay with really nice waves. The staff are super friendly and there is a nice community based around the hostels and surf schools in the area. The boys are all great surfers themselves so if you need instruction they will help you out. Lots of amazing Sri Lankan food shops near by + supermarket & ATM. When I was there in August it was super chilled but if you go in high season you can party here for sure. Thanks Dream Lanka!

    Staff are so lovely and friendly here, they went out of their way to help and give recommendations. You can have surfing lessons here too, literally located right on the beach with an ATM and supermarket very close by. Lots of activities to see around the area on tours. I had a private room although it was just a fan it was actually ok, not too hot. The breakfast included here is also very good! 100% recommend.

    Awsome place with good atmosphere, the staff was great and helpful. If you are looking for place to chill, this is the place to stay, the hostel is basically on the beach 🌴 I like in fact that location is not that touristic as unawatuna, but also have all you need nearby.

    The hotel is, literally, at the beach. Rooms are big and comfy, although quite hot and there lockers were only big enough for a small backpack. Bathrooms are basic, but nice. There’s a Food City nearby and some bakeries around. Also, Galle is like 2km away. They offer surf lessons and the teacher was quite good. Also, the staff was very friendly, and allowed us to cook our own stuff in their kitchen. Good vibes overall. Definitely recommended! (:

    I really liked the beach-bar vibe :) it’s located directly at the beach, the view from dorm balcony is great. It’s really easy to get to Galle or to take a bus heading east

    The hostel staff here attacked my friend, they followed him next door to his dorm and physically beat him, including punching him in the head. My friend and two girls all reported these men to the police for their behaviour that night. PLEASE DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU ARE A WOMAN TRAVELLING ALONE!!
