Best and most friendly staff we have encountered during our Sri Lanka journey. Fantastic rock and sand beach location. Not really suited for children and no pool. Ideal for couples though. Rooms are not new and have suffered from the rough sea climate, but this is logical when your balcony is 20 m from the sea waves. We'll surely go...

My brother and I stayed here for 4 nights in the low season and were very impressed by the service, cleanliness and staff. The hotel is right on the beach away from Unawatuna (taxi ride 300 rupee) and has swimming area in the sea and a pool up the road that the hotel will drive you to. The menu was...

An absolutely wonderful resort on the best strip of beach along the entire coast. The staff are wonderful and the resort is in a fabulous location just out of Galle and Unawatuna but close enough to make a cheap tuk tuk ride. Lovely food and a superb setting. It really is the best choice for a holiday at the beach...

This is a casual,clean, good value and friendly establishment with not too many rooms. The location is great, just on the beach with a rock pool further away along the beach, so everybody can have a swim without being worried about strong waves. So relaxing on deck chairs under palm trees watching Indian Ocean waves breaking on on sand and...

I loved this small family owned hotel! The hospitality of staff here is wonderful and the location perfect, on an uncrowded beach. Unlike all the larger nearby beach resorts where sun baking chairs and people are squashed up next to each other competing for space, this place has fewer guests and much more communal garden space to relax. I loved...

This family owned boutique hotel is wonderful! This is authentic Sri Lankan hospitality. Only 10 minutes from Galle Fort yet utterly relaxing. All the staff were friendly and helpful providing a genuine personalised service. The half board arrangement is totally worth it and includes breakfast and dinner. Food was fresh and so delicious. Rooms clean and simple, I loved our...
