This was our first holiday to Sri Lanka. After a long transfer in a nice private air con mini cab. We arrived at the hotel .This part was a bit disjointed as we had no idea what the procedure was.Not a well thought out process from the hotel. Our 2 week stay was fantastic.

We could bath in sea, swimming pool or in the Jacuzzi. Bedroom was spacious with balcony view. Not a busy area, so calm and quiet. Lengthy beach. Staff was excellent...

Good for a relaxing week end to enjoy sea breeze. Atmosphere is calm and quiet. Buffet spread is also good. I stayed in a superior room. The metress of the bed was not comfortable and placing two small metresses for a queen size bed is odd. Toothpaste was not provided in the bathroom. There should be a separate area for...

We visited this place last month for a much needed vacation. The rooms were comfortable & the layout was extraordinary. What made it so, was the awesome view from your bed.
