Fabulous! What a hidden gem….we unfortunately only had one night at this beautiful resort but the manager Dean made sure our stay was superb. The accommodation is quirky, spacious, cool, and great value…the rest of the resort is spectacular, from the Pool, to the several lounge areas dotted about...and some great touches like the palm tree shower and numerous swinging chairs dotted around. Ideal for relaxing, reading, sunbathing and generally forgetting about the rest of the world!
The food was fantastic; having overindulged in Sri Lankan cuisine prior to our stay, it was a welcome change to have some homemade gnocchi (prepared by Dean’s mother!)…and the seafood really is a must! The team did their absolute best to cater to our every request, and always with a big smile.
What a great laugh we had sharing stories over a glass (or bottle?!) of Arrack... Dean – hope to see you in Singapore soon!
