A nice hotel, let down by the room service, no towels in the room and it took 3 requests and 2 hours to get them. A beautiful location, with two good pools. Right on the beach. Good food and friendly staff.

We were taken to Jetwing lighthouse for a business lunch. Arriving early were had the selection of either a table outside or inside both overlooking the sea. The views are spectacular and worthy of a leisurely lunch. Granted the service was a tad slow but it didn't spoil the dining experience which was surpassed by the great Sri Lankan curries... More

Great hotel. Gorgeous property. Slightly expensive but lovely. The lounge facing the sea is the best feature of this hotel. The sound of the sea waves, the sunset, the beautiful sea... everything is stunning. The reception guys initially told us early check in wasn't possible as the rooms were all occupied but then gave us our rooms within an hour... More

This is a lovely hotel, but pricey. The loveliest area - especially at sunset- is the outside lounge that overlooks the sea. Despite the assurance of an early check - in, we were kept waiting for over an hour. This was despite the fact that the hotel was at low occupancy. Methinks its because they were trying to fob us...

There have been many reviews commenting on the service and the offerings in the restaurant. To be honest, we just went for a drink and an opportunity to experience the spaces and architecture. We were severely impressed and loved every single view point, detail and architectural and landscape proposition. Many excellent books have been written and photos published, however I... More
