This was the last hotel on our holiday in Sri Lanka..We have travelled before and very often we have been disappointed in the last hotel..But this time we were very pleased.The hotel was the best of all..The grounds were well planned and the feeling in the whole hotel was peaceful and tranquil.The swimming pools enjoyed. The food exceptional. With a good selection of dishes. The rooms nicely furnished.and the staff efficient and friendly.In fact when we asked for avocado (which were out of season). They went out of their way and got some for dinner next evening.
Only a moment away is a wonderful beach,long and sandy,The sea looked a little rough, but it was refreshing and we enjoyed the warmth of the water..We had no trouble with hawkers...We soon got used to the train running at the bottom of the garden ,through a gate,and after the first day ,we became used to the noise and didn,t even hear it..
The only fault , (nit picking) was that our bathroom needed a small amount of upgrading to keep up to the standard of the rest of our room.
We would definately return to this hotel and recommend it.
The nearest town is a 5 minute tuk tuk ride away.
