This was our second stay at Aditya and we were delighted to find that it was just as good this time. It is a small, very luxurious place, with a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. There are only about 12 rooms which are all suites and are beautifully furnished. Last time in 2007 we stayed in a garden suite which was huge and had a fab outside/ inside bathroom and a private terrace and plunge pool. Our daughter, who was 9 at the time, loved it and particularly liked the star projections on the ceiling at night. This time we had a sea view suite which was stunning. It had a big, private terrace with plunge pool and views of the palm fringed beach and sea. The hotel is directly on a quiet stretch of beach and has lovely gardens with hammocks and seating areas dotted around. The pool is very large, well maintained and the area around it has lots of loungers and a great wooden canopied day bed in which to relax. The design of the building flows very well, and reminded us of a modern take on a bawa building. The restaurant is at the centre, overlooking the palm trees and beach, and is a light, airy space leading directly onto the gardens. The food is very good, the breakfasts amazing and the kitchen catered to all tastes from delicious sri lankan dishes, lots of fish, to more westernised food which our daughter preferred. Meals could also be taken at any time, which made for a very relaxing stay. The staff were exceptionally nice and looked after us very well on both visits. The location is great because its on a stretch of beach which has not been spoilt so there is no hastle when going for a walk and the view is picturesque (but only a short tuk tuk ride away is Hikkaduwa and Galle Fort). We only ever paddled in the sea because it was a bit rough, but the pool was so nice and never too busy, that was no hardship! We definately hope to return.
