Our room was beautiful overlooking the pool and the sea. Such a stunning location and we had dinner right on the beach. We only had one night here but wished we could have stayed longer. I imagine you could get a lot of rest and relaxation here.

This was a beautiful hotel, well worth the experience of just staying there, because it is so close to the sea. The beach is lovely, clean, just loved it. I could have sat there in front of the sea forever... It was wonderful. The swimming pool was great, I didn't feel like leaving it. Very friendly and pleasant staff. The...

We had a room in the new wing overlooking the second pool and the ocean. Bit of a hike to the restaurant but peaceful location. Very spacious room, excellent shower, our loo flush broke but was repaired before we returned from breakfast. We saw turtles on the beach and two huge lizards in the grounds. Food is best eaten indoors...

Many years back when I was doing work related to the International Hotel Industry, Lighthouse Hotel was the only hotel from Sri Lanka that had the "International Small Luxury Hotels" rating. Thus I had a very high expectation of the place... however I can not say it lives up to 'that' expectation and I am sure they do not have...

This is a great hotel. Clean large rooms, two pools, good food and beach front position. The land is a bit narrow for such a large hotel so there is some traffic noise. The beach sand is narrow and in early September swimming is prohibited due to the rough seas. However great for walking. The wifi is not great, with...

The hotel location and its architectural design are simply beautiful. The rooms are nice and comfortable , but that is not all when you stay at a hotel.
