the final stop on our 3 centre holiday, having been at Ras Al Khamiah in the Emirates and Filitheyo in the Maldives. Transfer from the airport took about 2 hours. We arrived at 9 pm and went straight into dinner. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy, buffet with a grill outside and there was plenty of choice. The weekends are busy with lots of local people staying at the hotel. We had read a lot about the hotel but were somewhat disappointed with the room which was clearly in need of refurbishment and we had also requested a king bed and were given twin, this was rectified the following morning but the room was of the same standard. Staff in the bars and restaurants were good. Pool bar served fresh cooked hot food. On occasion the buffet food was cold and was very repetitive. Also the public toilets in the reception area were in need of a good clean, the doors were dirty and there was a strong smell. Points were addressed with manager and we are pleased to say these were acted on. We had a day trip to Kandy and visited the elephant orphanage in Pinwala on the way, this was excellent, we also rode an elephant a short drive away. A trip into town in the tuk tuk is an experience and not expensive. We had a meal in the A La Carte restaurant at the hotel on our last night and it was excellent, food, presentation and service could not have been better. It was a nice way to finish our holiday. One drawback as well is that you leave the hotel 5 hours prior to departure.
