We've stayed a couple of times at the Lighthouse. Superbly situated a short tuk-tuk ride from town (don't use the "hotel tuk-tuk" go outside and negotiate a much lower rate). The hotel is spotless, the food is superb, and the staff are so wonderfully friendly. Every time we visit it's like coming home again. Sitting on the verandah with a... More

The location of the hotel is fantastic. The surf coming out of the vast stretches of sea is soothing. The first view of the sea as you come into the lobby is simply breathtaking. However the service is decidedly average. For the price they charge ( USD 200 ++ ), you would expect to have rooms ready on time (... More

Our first impressions of this hotel as we arrived were that it it was rather austere and forbidding. However, once through the entrance level and up onto the terrace overlooking the ocean, we soon began to appreciate the clean lines and spaciousness. Our room was lovely with a great bathroom area and balcony overlooking the first pool and the sea.... More

Stunning! This is a truly fabulous hotel. It was a main highlight of a fantastic holiday in Sri Lanka. We were prompted to book it based on a rave review in the Rough Guide book and it lived up to the review. The hotel designed by architect Geoffrey Bawa is gorgeous. Hotel rooms are beautiful, extremely spacious with a quirky... More

I stayed at this wonderful hotel for a week. I had a room facing the ocean offering open sea views and waves crashing on surf. My room was in the main building but I didn’t hear any traffic, only the sea. The big room was pleasant, with a balcony and a big bathroom / dressing room, but with a limited... More

The cinnamon room is well worth the visit, usually empty but the food is beautiful however the restaurant needs to be less imposing and more welcoming.
