We stayed here for a week and just loved everything about it. We were in room 2 which had a terrace (definitely recommend that you get a room with outside space) and was right next to the train track but, honestly, we didn't mind the trains at all. Our room was gorgeous (I loved all the stripes) and I really adored the very cool style of the hotel: it was calming and cooling but without being obtrusive,
The pool was just lovely and the beach was like something out of a Bacardi advert - white sands, fringed with palm trees and absolutely no one else on it.
But it was the food that really took the place to the next level: it is almost certainly the best in the area, and it's available all day long. I wished there were more vegetarian Sri Lankan options but otherwise it was fantastic.
Such a lovely hotel - I wish I were back there now!
