We stayed here for 7 nights with a family group of 12. We had six Ocean facing pavilions-each a 2500 square foot house with a living/dining, kitchen, bedroom plus a luxurious bath. The butlers were very friendly and helpful. Chaminda was a particularly fabulous butler- helping my elderly parents ( in their 80's) with all their needs. The hotel needs... More

Stayed at the garden villa with my wife and our 14 month old. I had called the hotel in advance about the baby cot and they were very kind to arrange for one , with a mosquito net (i think they took a cue from one of the reviews below ). The pavilions are spacious and luxurious while being very... More

If you don't want to be too far from Colombo and still want to have a good beach-side vacation, then Serene Pavilions would be a great option. I stayed at one of their Garden Pavilions with wife and my 3 month old baby for 2 nights. The price tag is a bit high, but the hotel makes sure that you... More

I had the best service from the moment i called to check the Hotel. The staff were very friendly and was willing to go the "extra mile". Usually the hotel does not accommodate children under 12y, but they made a exemption for us because it was our wedding anniversary and a family outing(Thilini FOM and her team made it possible)....

We (1 year old kid, wife and I) visited this place on 7th Nov and stayed for 3 nights in the garden suite. This was our second visit after 3 years. We had a great time. Left completely relaxed and satisfied. Service was excellent. The hotel did not have a high chair for the baby initially but they went out... More

Stayed in Jul (off-season for East coast). We had a HUGE villa with its own plunge pool. Villa was very lovely. A few things didn't work but were sorted out quickly (prob due to low occupancy in the low season - we were the only guests when we arrived). Villa 'butler' was attentive and lovely. I'm sure this place would... More

This is the best romantic weekend we have ever had. From having your villa to the butler service to the food, it was an amazing experience. I would say this is the no 1 romantic outing for couples because we had our own privacy. We were welcomed in the traditional srilankan lighting of the oil lamp. It felt so warm... More

My fiancé and I stayed over at this beautiful and luxurious place. With a private swimming pool, delicious food, an amazing view from the room, a really cozy bed, I would say it was a perfect getaway. The staff were really friendly and the villas were fully equipped.
