i stayed with my wife on FB basis in October 2013. the place is obviously under-utilized for it's advantages. meals were a disappointment. set menu dinner to start with absolutely no choice except for the question of fish or chicken. lucky to have a buffet for b'fast but then lunch was a disaster with just rice and curry without no choice again except for fish/chicken matter. no choice over dessert. it was no better than a meal served at a budget eatery except for the dish of fried fish. being a critique at food, one had to admit that the hotel was almost empty. point is that the few guests who stayed over deserved at least a few more choices on the set menu.
TIP - stay B&B or H/B and eat at the indian restaurant near the southern expressway exit (15KM from the hotel though). another option is Catalina grill right infront of Koggala airport with eating facility inside an used aircraft.
great location, great beach front, friendly, attentive and very pleasant staff. above average rooms in the new wing passable for 3.5 star only if it had a TV and coffee making accessories.
- 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
