Just magnificent! Rooms were divine, clean, up to date, modern. Staff were excellent. Pool area was to die for. If you need a real break then spoil yourselves as this has been my all time favourite place to relax. The staff even organised an elephant ride on the beach.

Everything from our welcoming (with a flower garlands) to our departure was fantastic. We were offered fresh fruits and ice cream by the pool on a daily basis and received excellent service at...

We spent three nights in this really lovely resort. The rooms were nice. Loved the Sri Lankan food especially the hoppers. Enjoyed walking and swimming on the beach. This is a hotel we definitely plan to visit again.

We spent 5 nights here following a hectic business trip to China and it provided a lovely relaxing base to visit local areas in Sri Lanka. The weather was good during our stay which added to the beauty of the hotel grounds and location as the views to the beach were beautiful. The hotel was clean and spacious but also... More

Had a wonderful family time. No complaints except the food is very steeply priced compared to other places in Sri Lanka. The rooms are nice, though a bit small. Pool side is good to spend the whole day, just lazing around.
