The hotels was very nice & we had the beach villa which was very spacious with all the amenities in the room. The staff were very friendly and helpful and most importantly the service was good except they took a bit of time to get anything that you ordered. The food was OK unless you ordered Sri Lanken which was... More

Received us with a nice and warm welcome. Me and my wife stayed there two nights during our honeymoon. Rooms were clean and tidy with all the facilities needed. We booked an ocean facing pavilion which gave us a perfect view of the sunset. We had our own butler who was really helpful and attentive.

The 8 beach front pavilions at Serene Pavilions are set in a stunning location and arranged as 4 units either side of the central bar and restaurant. In addition to the beach front pavilions there are 4 garden pavilions which are currently... More

We stayed for 5 nights in the 2 bedroom pavilion with our 2 teenagers. It's a beautiful setting with fish ponds all around the grounds, even across to the front door. The pavillion is spacious with separate bedrooms outside at opposite ends. The private garden was nice with its own little dip pool. The room could do with a good... More

We stayed 7nights at Serene Pavilions and it was better than we expected. The pavilions have a a lot of space, good equipment and a great view from the bedroom. Moreover they offer a lot of privacy. The pool is huge and great to relax. We also enjoy the gym to make some sport. The pavilions need a little refresh... More

The food was delicious - we had a special fish offered by a kind waiter Lahiro. Only thing I didn't appreciate were the higher prices (but the fish offered by Lahiro was way cheaper than the rest of menus in the card). I would really suggest you this restaurant. Its real hi-class.

We stayed 4 nights at the end of a tour of Sri Lanka. Our sea view pavilion was well furnished and very comfortable especially thanks to the care of our private butler Amal Mahendra. The staff are all friendly and attentive and the standards of hygiene and cleanliness are very high. Excellent housekeeping. The beach where local fishermen pull in... More

We had visited Serene Pavilions several times but it had been 2 years since our last visit. We decided to go with some friends for a relaxing weekend. The place is still a beautiful setting, so peaceful and tranquil. The food is really good, although very expensive and having the services of a personal butler is nice. (We had Lahiru).... More
