Got exactly what I wanted. Very professional crew. This company is littlebit more expensive than the competetive ones, but they really know what they are doing. I can highly recommend. PS. They make great dishes from the fish you catch ;)

First of all it has to be the cleanest place in Aluthgama/Bentota area. On top of that the location was perfect, right in the middle of all the activities. The hotel provides for boat transfer to Bentota beach and has probably the best night view...More
