We started and ended our tour of Sri Lanka here. Saman and Judith were very welcoming and gave us a delicious smoothie when we arrived, which was a lovely welcome. We stayed half board and the Sri Lankan curry was delicious and the fruit salad for breakfast, toast and eggs were a great start for the day. The rooms were... More

This lovely hotel has spacious, clean rooms with big beds and good showers. It is very close to the beach and relatively close to the airport, which makes it a good start or comfortable end of your trip in Sri Lanka. Breakfast is great (good coffee) and the food is also very nice. Judith and Saman are very friendly people... More

The hotel has a lot of potential, it is not completely finished, but the pool and the buffets are more than enough reasons to pay this hotel a visit. The staff is mostly very professional, with some beginners flaws. The luggage-guy, was amazing he even changed the electrical socket in my room to make it fit to my laptop! I... More

This is the best welcome off all my traveladventures so far. We arrived from the crowdy Delhi at this nice and peacefull guesthouse. The owner (Saman and Judith) are great! We first had a small room wich was a bit smelly. After one notice they gave us a wonderfull clean and comfy room. Absolute favorite!

After a long flight, great to be collected by the owner from the airport. We had a family apartment for the four of us, ideal. Clean, spacious, comfortable beds. Lovely breakfast in the garden. Well recommended as a starting point to a Sri Lankan tour.

This was the most comfortable place that I stayed in Sri Lanka during my week visit. There is hot water in the shower, which is a rare find. The bed is comfortable. The breakfast is good. It is only a dollar tuk tuk ride to the restaurants. This was a nice place to start and end our tour.

We stayed at this hotel for 1 night at the beginning of our trip. It's more of a homestay than a hotel. The room was very basic but everything was clean. The owners were friendly and sat to talk with us. They also tried to sell us some tours or services but we have already had everything booked before we... More

After our 10 hour flight and 15 minute drive, we were taken to this hotel. We we're welcomed with a nice cold drink and friendly welcome by Judith. Our room was beautiful, clean and tidy, and was very quite. Would go back to this hotel. I don't know how much this hotel cost as we done a tour package.

The first experience was very bad. We came at around 12 in the night and were given a small room which had no hot water shower although we booked an apartment room (which comes with a small kitchen). We were not given the apartment room until we asked about it the following morning. Beak first was ok ,but nothing much.... More

We chose this accommodation for our last two nights in Sri Lanka - proximity to airport, beach, last minute shopping were all guiding our choice. Add to that the wonderful traditional food, if that is your fancy, friendly multilingual owners, pleasant garden areas for meals and relaxation plus beautiful orchids, spacious comfortable rooms ( with more modern ones being built...
