We had a fantastic stay in the hotel for our honeymoon. The staff were attentive and friendly at all times. The food was fantastic, as were the rooms. Our room had a glass partition (with blind) from the bathroom, so you can have a bath and watch the waves come rolling in. Two lovely warm pools face beach, perfect.

This is not my favorite spot in Sri Lanka but this hotel is one of the better choises if you pick Negombo e.g. convenient for an early flight. Pay the little extra to get an upgrade room. It is well worth it. This is a more relaxed quiet place wich is nice. 2 pools. Service is good. The best is... More

A great beach location, we stayed here for a week and weren't disappointed. The layout of the hotel means every room has a sea view, we were on the ground floor, the rooms have a patio which are equipped with a sunbed, relaxing chair & coffee table so great to finish up at for the last of the afternoon sun....
