The staff really went above and beyond for us, they are all so polite and helpful. The hotel and grounds are just beautiful, and are maintained well. There's no need to book any excursions online beforehand, as there is someone called Ruchie who you can find on the beach. He was more than half the price of the online prices,...

We stayed here for the final 5 days of our travels around S L. It was exactly what we wanted which was a chilled out, beach and poolside relax at the end of the holiday. We had a club suite which was huge and a really nice room in the new part of the hotel. Well worth the additional money....

This hotel, even though quite large, designed by the famed Sri Lanka architect, Geoffrey Bawa, provides a serene setting, dispersing the guests over a beautiful landscape of pools, falling water, as well as the sea and beach. With a reasonable rate, a helpful staff and good dinning options, we enjoyed four restful days.

Back again for a short visit with two friends on their first visit to Srl Lanka. They liked the hotel very much as I did of course. It seems to have benefited from a few licks of paint in the last year and all the standard rooms are now renovated as has half the pool. The welcome was impeccable and...

Large spacious room opening out on to small sun terrace with direct access to the lovely pools and gardens, and out to the beach. The sea had too strong a current...
