Excellent hotel with great facilities. Highly recommended and the half board catering was excellent. He Head Chef even prepared a black pork curry for us during our stay. Hotel is roomy, pools and bar are great and it is an excellent base to visit places such as Yala.

We stayed here mainly because we had some visiting to do in Hambantota town and because we had an offer on the rates. Despite this, we were still disappointed with our stay.

Stayed at the hotel after the SL vs SA 3rd ODI, July. It was a very bad experience right from the moment we entered. Starting from the welcome drink..! It was just a "Nelly Cordial", with that artificial taste :) Other hotels normally serves a fresh drink. At least a king-coconut drink would have been much better. Next is regarding... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel recently in double accommodation and the room we had was spacious, pleasant and clean. Bathroom was modern and similar in condition except for the shower's tap fitting that was loose and came off. Maintenance of the room and bathroom was generally of good standard except for that tap and the A/C which... More

The guest accommodation is satisfactory not luxurious. However the facilities for drivers is bad, and unacceptable for a hotel of this type. the food is reasonable quality with a good choice. the swimming pools are nice but could be developed.

There is a beautiful big garden with a swimming pool and also another infinity pool facing the beach. Beach has lovely red sand but the area is not safe for sea bathing. Food is average. All in all an average place
