For someone who enjoys unspoilt beaches and pampering, Nilaveli Beach Hotel is the perfect destination.
I visited this hotel with my family and some friends from 4th to 7th April and had the most relaxing holiday.
From the very prompt and efficient check in which was handled by Mr Sudha, We were escorted to our rooms by Mr Fareed who has has been employed here since the 1970s
We chose the sea facing delux rooms which are tastefully decorated and is equipped with a very powerful air conditioner, minibar, satelite TV, coffee and tea making facilities etc.
The white sandy beach is perfect for children to play and the ocean was very calm with life guards on duty. One can not resist the turquoise blue water afterwhich a tropical cocktail at the beach bar is a must.
The very efficient and freindly staff were always at our beck and call and very accomodating of all our needs inclduing our children's eternal demands for snacks and soft drinks.
Special mention must be made of Mr Siva the restaurant captain who was always around to serve us with a smile.
We decided to stay on half board basis and asked the chef to surprise us with his pick of sea food specialities for lunch which he did to our complete delight.
Dinner was a set menu comprising fusion cuisine both eastern and western including fresh sea food and all prepared with attention to detail which is something that is lacking in many larger hotels.
The hotel has tennis and vollyball courts. A fully equipped scuba diving centre is loated within the premises which seemed quite busy with guests clammering to sign up for courses and to go on the two scheduled dives for the day.
We enjoyed our excursion to Pigeon Island which was arranged by the hotel in their modern passenger craft and snorkelling was very good with sightings of reef shark and turtle.
The only area which the hotel is lacking is a spa, however the manager assured me that the this too would be available the next time we visit the property.
