We were so looking forward to our second visit to this beautiful hotel on the west coat of Sri Lanka but unfortunately a lot had changed in the intervening years. The setting is as lovely as ever. The pool is the best on the island and the staff as friendly as always. It is let down by the restaurant. It... More

A great hotel, the staff are wonderful, the food gets better as time goes on, but it is a little gem of a place. The rooms are spacious and the room boys look after everything for you. They clean the rooms each day to a very high standard. The pool and activities staff are amazing - very helpful, always attentive... More

A perfect resort to relax with your family along the west coast of Sri Lanka. The landscape of the resort offers perfect match to relax with a massive swimming pool catering to whole family. Located closer to airport , Colombo or Kandy is an added advantage the hotel has. Individual chalets make it a homely feeling

In a nutshell. Highly recommend it. Great location, great things to do, some accommodation a bit dated and food could be better. Excellent value. We booked last minute. Just changed cash at airport got an airport taxi from desk in the terminal. Good exchange rate and taxi cheaper than hotel transfer. Traffic can make journeys very slow at certain times.... More

We have been visiting Sri Lanka since 1997 and this is our favourite hotel. The staff are by far its greatest asset; helpful, cheerful, attentive and, above all, friendly. From arrival, when the welcome begins, to the sad time of departure, we feel this is our home from home. If you exchange a word or two with any staff and... More

We spent three weeks on fully inclusive in December, our fifth visit to this hotel, many other guests were frequent returners. The public areas are well furnished and always spotlessly clean. Our large, well furnished room looked over the lagoon, which pleased my husband as he is a keen wild life photographer. The meals are served buffet style, there is... More

Stayed for two nights with family over the Christmas weekend, whilst the hotels has some excellent recreational activities (Foosball, Basketball, Football, Golf, Badminton, Tennis and Billiards) and plenty of space for a large group to while away time..the service is appalling. We were given our room almost 3 hours later than the check in time and that was after much... More

Just returned (Dec 2015) from a 2 week stay at this hotel and am finding difficult to know how to objectively comment on it. It was holiday of two halves! The first half was awful, but after a lot of complaining, the management improved things. I actually wrote to the hotel 5 times prior to going, as I had questions... More

We booked 5 rooms well in advanced but we did not get to check in fully until 5pm (the official check in time is 2pm)! We were given two rooms after about an hour from our arrival and we had to make several reminders to get the other 3 rooms. No staff bothered to transfer our luggage when the other... More
