We were staying in a sister hotel and visited the spa here. The staff were very professional and the therapists excellent. We decided to stay for lunch which was well presented and tasted good. The service was also professional and friendly. Worth a visit.

Little space for parking, I parked my car within premises under a tree with fruits which was the only space available. When I reached Galle fort only I realised... More

V pleasant stay. Particularly like the hotel's eco policies and support for local farmers. Tasted some v interesting local delights including unusual vegetables. Staff are also very pleasant. I'd like to commend in particular a waiter in the Cardamon Cafe called Kokila. Very thoughtful and kind! Will definitely come again.
