This is a brand new property, pretty close to the beach, and it's got a great pool as well. The rooms were nice, well equipped and spacious. The breakfast is great as well.

Overall a good experience, but the ala carte food at the restaurant is overpriced and the staff are a little new and confused.

Room Tip: The rooms on the lower level have direct pool access, recommend you stay there.

This new, small hotel, is a wonderful place to stay, very clean, nice gardens, very nice swimming pool, and location too is great, only about 200 metres to the beach!

The Manager Mr. Dinesh is very helpful, we forgot our passport at the front desk and he had it couriered to us at our next hotel!

Highly recommended place to stay with family.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a sit out balcony overlooking the pool, and the rooms are almost identical.

This is a new hotel with a landscaped area, cozy rooms, nice pool, friendly stuff and professional management. They provide a comfortably stay for guests. I felt myself at home. Breakfasts was very good, especially the fresh fruits. The restaurant offers delicious seafood. And omelet with vegetables was tasty too. The beach is beautiful,clean and wide. It can be reached on foot in 10 minutes. The hotel has a new car, my transfer from & to the airport was very well organized. I recommend this hotel for a quiet and relaxing holiday.

Room Tip: All rooms have a balcony and pool view

This villa was absolutely exceptional. Immaculate rooms with views over the pool and a 5 minute walk to a lovely beach. A short tuk tuk ride from bentota centre with a beautiful lagoon and many shops and restaurants. A first class stay with great breakfast and brilliant staff! Do not miss this one! Avoid the mainstream package hotels! Overpriced and full of tourists! This place is perfect and a fraction of the price of the others.
