Located on unarguably one of the finest beaches in Sri Lanka and perhaps the whole region. The hotel blends into the atmosphere very well. There are no modern structures etc instead rustic elegance from a bygone era with plenty of trees for shade. The rooms are comfortable but lack some many modern features that adorn many resorts of today. Food... More

Stayed there during the month of august with family. Location is attractive and the staff is helpful. Couldnt beleive that they didnt offer a buffet for saturday lunch. And in the night you had a buffet without a single item of sea food. Being a beach hotel u should offer good seafood plates. At least fish. For the breakfast we... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our 12 day LK tour after coming in from Habarana. Some good things:- Staff is well behaved. The large pool is great which can be fun for kids. There is a deep section of the pool and I must appreciate the life guard who acted quickly and helped saving a child who was... More

The location is amazing. The rooms are unremarkable and, annoyingly, the standard rooms don't include safety deposit boxes. We stayed in two rooms and in both the bathrooms were not very nice and looked a bit dated/dirty in both cases. The food available at the bar was good but the menu is the same for lunch and dinner so this... More

Beautiful location in Nilaveli however, the hotel needs a makeover. Bathrooms are basic but clean and the rooms are spacious. The staff were friendly. Beach hut food was good. Swimming pool is a good size. Would definately go back. 10 minute boat ride to Pigeon Island which is a must for snorkelling!

We stayed for three nights as a break from our tour of Sri Lanka. The room was number 15. Almost none of the rooms have a real sea view, as the buildings are located about 50 meters from the beach, with trees in between. The beautiful beach itself is about 30 meters wide. We had a look at an upgrade... More
