This little hotel was such a treat in a small village setting with a fantastic beach and snorkling oppurtunities. There was sooo much to do outside the hotel, but it was nice to come back to clean, comfortable and quiet rooms. My friends and i (a group of about 6) went Whale watching in mirissa, crocodile cruise along the river, not to mention the lazy mornings on the beach and snorkling. We even saw a turtle while sitting at the lawn beside the beach (wadiya). It's nice to get away from the over priced touristy locations in Galle, Mirissa and Unawatuna, and the beach is so beautiful. It's a local beach frequented on the weekends by tons of people, but if you're looking for a private beach atmosphere the weekdays are best.
The staff is friendly, and helpful.. and the food is so good. We mostly enjoyed local and Sri Lankan cuisine, but one evening feeling a little homesick we got to have a fantastic western meal. All in all a wonderful weekend with my friends. The price was reasonable which was really the cherry on top.
