Hello, my name is Ramesh and I'd like to welcome you to
GOYAMBOKKA IEW GUESTHOUSE
an eco friendly accommodation
A Village Stay Near the Beach
Goyambokka Beach is only a 5 minute walk along a village road and there you can swim and sunbake surrounded by coconut palm trees. There are also huts on the beach offering sunbeds with umbrellas and a good food and drink selection, including fresh seafood from our own local fishing market. They even catch fresh fish right in front of the huts.
You can view the sunrise from the beach or take a romantic moonlight stroll.
I can arrange day trips or longer for you as well as local tuk tuks to go into town and elsewhere.
My guesthouse offers you air-con and non air-con rooms, a living room and a kitchen to cook if you wish, maybe using fresh produce and seafood from the local markets. As well as the complimentary breakfast, I can provide lunch and dinner - all traditional and western home cooked meals.
There’s a good fibre wifi connection, ceiling fans, hot water as well as off-street parking.
The guesthouse is in a garden setting, visited by many birds including peacocks. Monkeys come through the trees and sometimes mongoose will appear as they hunt in the undergrowth.
I look forward to meeting you.
Please contact me if you have any queries or would like to book tours in advance. Otherwise, just make up your mind when you arrive.
