The hotel is about 60 km from Colombo and 30 km from the airport. Although the chalets are located in a very spacious garden with luscious and green trees, the restaurant and the swimming pool are quite far from most rooms. I figured out that the even numbers in the 100 series (e.g. 132, 134, 136) are located by the... More

Fantastic place built around the mangroves, lakes & streams. Must take a boat ride along the mangroves. Large pool & beautiful Chalets very well constructed. It looks an Eco Resort. It is less than an hour from the airport so can stay over after a tiring flight

Hotel is located close to beach area but 2 mints walk from the hotel. Hence rooms do not have the sea view. But rooms are well cleaned and safe.Have a considerably good pool. And they have different games and animators too. Food was quite good, filled with lots of fresh seafood. However there is no such a amazing natural environment... More

Gorgeous beach, beautiful and large pool, excellent views of the lagoon and a fantastic spread for each meal! The room is spacious and comfortable with all modern amenities, nice clean bathroom. Pity we couldn't reserve a second day because it was fully booked as it is a long weekend. Planning to make early reservations next time.

Generally a good hotel chosen as it was reasonably close to the airport. We received a warm welcome. The rooms were very spacious although some bathrooms had been renovated and others not. We were a party of 9 (4 rooms), having booked 9 months prior to going and had asked to be near to each other with lagoon views. Only... More

I was thoroughly disappointed by this hotel that we stayed in on our last night in Sri Lanka, having travelled the country for the previous 8 days staying in some lovely hotels and experiencing some fantastic food. The reasons for my 1 star review are: 1. Our bedroom was dirty, smelt damp and reminded us of something from Faulty Towers.... More

We decided to book this hotel at recommendation of a Sri Lankan friend because he said it was close to the airport and well kept which would make it good for our early AM flight to Maldives. Well, it's obvious he's not that great a friend after all. The room is very tired with no view and half kilometer walk... More
