We were based here as part of an Exodus wildlife tour for 4 nights. It is ideally based about 20 minutes from Mirissa the base for our whale watching trips. The staff are very friendly and our room 305 was very clean and faced the ocean. We only had our evening meal at the hotel but they provided us with a packed breakfast each morning. The food is buffet style and although the choice wasn't vast there was something for everyone. It was nice to have a choice to relax around the pool or just walk onto the beach in the afternoons. We weren't hassled too much by the locals on the beach and it didn't put us off. As we had to leave the hotel at dawn for our trips it was nice to see the stilt fishermen right outside the hotel. For anyone wanting to break the journey up between Colombo and Yala national park this is an ideal hotel to stay at.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is a place to relax, rejuvenate, and experience heritage, culture, nature and the way of life in the remote south of Sri Lanka. A resort located in an area where you can also surf and dive. From the lush green garden walk on to the golden sandy beach where you can see the natural reef breaking the blue water to a gentle wave which transforms to a tiny bubbly ripple. Swaying and whispering palms blended with the sound of waves on the quiet beach takes you through a journey of serenity. The long lonely stretch of beach offers you peace in abundance and a dip in the warm Indian Ocean is rejuvenating. Lie under a palm tree and relax on this unpolluted stretch of beach. Learn the art of stilt fishing – a mastery passed down from generation to generation and enjoy the only village of stilt fishing in the world. ... more less
