Room upgrade given to 6th Floor sea view rooms from which the view of the sea was probably the best we have experienced. The room was really good - bright and cheerful and with effective but quiet...

Good hospitality, we enjoyed chilling out. Do take the expressway road to save travel time and road repair bumps if going to Bentota from Colombo. Buying a data plan ? Mobility telecom operator has better coverage inside the hotel (and across Sri Lanka) ! You can purchase a prepaid voice + data plan from Colombo airport itself (after immigration counters).

Wonderful resort, staff amazing and helpful, great location. Clean, comfortable, stylish. Very annoyed I am forced to write 200 characters when a few words is sufficient in time and advise. If it was the hotel asking I wouldn't bother but Trip Advisor - shame

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights, enjoyed every minute of it. From the warm welcome upon arrival to the sad farewell on departure, there was nothing negative about this place. Staff couldn't be more helpful, decor was good and clean. The car arranged from the hotel for airport pick up was fine and the journey was 2 hours... More
