What an amazing little boutique hotel. Stayed for 4 nights and wish we'd stayed longer. Smiley and friendly staff who were always on hand to help out and not at all intrusive. The food was excellent every night and decent value at 2900 rps for 3 courses. There are of course cheaper places to eat in Tangalle but the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere so we ate there most nights. Worth noting that in terms of alcohol they only sell beer (presumably due to licensing) so if you want wine/spirits it's worth either bringing your own or asking one of the staff in advance to collect.
The pool area has a beautiful garden with a sea view and is a great place to unwind. The private beach is easily accessed through the garden though too rough to swim. Not an issue at all as there are some great beaches within a 5 minute tuk tuk trip that are fine for swimming. The room was spacious, modern and clean with a comfortable bed.
Easily the best place we stayed in Sri Lanka. The sort of place that would cost an absolute fortune in Europe but fantastic value here. Thanks Coco!
