Nice place for relaxation. However first impression of the villa is different from the way it is portrayed on the website. Food is decent however more options preferred. Apart from the stay rest of amenities are overpriced like transport, food, etc and hence we sourced our own suppliers

Location is great, very close to nearby attractions such as Unawatuna Beach, Weligama, Jungle Beach, Mirissa etc. We were two adults and two children,...

This is an excellent hotel. The villas are huge, food is great and it's very peaceful. It's located on the beach with nice gardens and plenty of space. The one issue we had is that the sea is too dangerous to swim in. This is a pity as otherwise the hotel was excellent. A couple of other things is the...

A very calming experience after the hustle and bustle of Colombo. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. We loved the outdoor/indoor courtyard bathroom. Also loved the turndown service with mosquito net and candles. Food was a bit hit and miss. The staff were great. You can't swim at the beach here but the staff recommended a great spot not...
