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.

Great accomodation and good food although expensive. Hotel is superb and our butler Laharo was very good. Great beach (but not for swimming) with great beach shacks with good food. Seafood amazing. Wadduwa is a typical village / town but nothing to do at night.

My comments need to be seen in the context of having paid over £300 a night. Yes, the pavilions are very light and airy, the plunge pool is great and you have a butler However....... We had dinner there on 5 nights and it was always bland despite the considerable cost. Breakfast was nothing special. You would expect better in... More

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 final element of our Sri Lankan tour involved a 7 night stay at Serene Pavilions at Wadduwa. 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
