Just 30 minutes from Colombo, this boutique villa hotel provided us with a luxurious time to rest and refresh. Very friendly staff, beautiful pool overlooking the ocean. The food was delicious and the rooms were exquistately decorated and huge! Massage was fabulous too! Can recommend this place as truly 5 star and quite unique.
