Nice place, food was good and reasonably priced as were the drinks. Beds are comfy. It's about a 20-25 min journey by Tuc-Tuc to Galle, you pay 800-1000 in local to get to Galle in a Tuc-Tuc. It's right on the main road but we did not find the rooms noisy. The Ocean Play rooms look out on to the... More

We stayed here for 3 nights for the start of our trip to Sri Lanka in Nov last year. We arrived after getting the train down from Colombo, hot and jet lagged, and were greeted with smiles and a lovely view from the hotel and room. The food at the hotel was very high quality, we had dinner here twice... More

Amazing view, very good food, small swimming pool (just for a quick bath to refresh) and nice and clean rooms. We had to change our room 3 times, so we had the chance to try 3 kind of rooms. The suite is big and very nice, with an amazing view. The room on the ground was nice too, but you... More

We arrived late afternoon for the check in. Tired and hungry after a long day. Our room was prebooked and prepaid for. We were greeted with lots of smiles, cold towels and coconut water. The fun ends here. I handed in my passport to the reception guy. 15 minutes later the check in was not done and he came over... More

Dear Aziz, Thank you for your feedback and we are extremely sorry for any setbacks from our end. The Aqua Aqua room is a room for long stay budget travelers. We will discontinue this room we have received many negative reviews for the room not having a sea view and this misleads the perception of the hotel. As for the... More

I will preface my comments by saying that this was our most expensive hotel on our trip (we paid about $270 usd per night). We were very disappointed to find the speed and quality of service here worse than most of the rest of our accommodation which ranged from ($20-$70 usd per night). We stayed at one other high end...

After having some pretty disappointing experiences elsewhere in sri lanka we were relieved to check in somewhere where the staff were efficient (mainly!), the room was super clean and the food incredible. Our room really had the wow factor with a view of endless waves from our bed and a lovely desk overlooking the water where you could sit and... More

We checked into a boutique hotel which honestly looks much smaller than what you see on the website. However, things change with your perspective, when you step onto their porch and see the Inidan Ocean open up in from of you. The rooms were good (we had Aqua Ocean Play) and they had given us a triple occupancy since we... More
