I Stayed at this property for 3 Nights starting from 25 th October. We were in a family group of 6 Adults and 5 Children. We got this hotel recomendation from the Queens hotel Kandy where we were staying earlier as it was of the same group.
The hotel was getting renovated. They were making a new wing and construction work was going on that's why few services were hit back like SPA and health club was not working. WIFI was only in the Lobby and restaurant. This was the reason why we got this hotel at a very heavy discounted price of more than 50%.
As soon as we we entered the Lobby we were just amazed by the beauty of it. Vert small and very sweetly designed lobby. It was a very beautiful modern lobby of different kind.
We were greeted by Ms. Sylvia and Ms. Prabha at the front office desk. They are very very courteous and smiles 24hrs a day. They took very little time to get us check in the rooms.
As soon as we entered the rooms it was chilled from before. I think they have switched on the AC long before. WOW was the word when we entered the room. Beautifully decorated everything what a Five Star hotel room should have was there at proper place. Minibar, LED TV , Black out curtains, Electric Kettle, Electronic Safe.
The room had a balcony right facing to the sea. Infact all the rooms at this property is having a sea facing. Spectacular views. There were swimming chairs in the balcony which were totally awesome. You can sun bath in your room or you can cozily sit with your partner in the evening and enjoy your drink out there.
Bed Linens were of very superiors quality. Matress was very soft and pillow was perfect. The linens were spotless bath linens were also of very good quality.
Bathroom is I must say very beautiful designed. All the accesories in the bathroom were flown in from Italy and China and was very decorated. All the bathroom amenities were there and nothing was missing.
Buffet breakfast was good and very similar to Srilankan kind breakfast. As we were in a group and we like Vegeterian Indian food so there was not much choice in that. But we requested there head Chef Dinesh for some Indian food and to our surprise he helped us a lot by making indian food for us. Dinesh is very very helpful and was ready to make anything for us. Thumbs up For Chef Dinesh.
Garden and swimming area is very very beautiful right on the beach and you can enjoy the scenic beauty of sea while swimming or sitting in the garden.
First of all I would like to say Hats off to the Architecture of the Hotel who has worked beautifully on every single part of the hotel.
Overall I must say I really enjoyed with my family at this 5 star property. I can say that it is one of the best property in Bentota. I would like to really recommend this hotel to everybody. Full marks to them. A very much thanks to Sylvia and Prabha also who ensured that our holiday is memorable. Superb !!!!!
