Where to start? This place is just a piece of heaven. The hotel is not to big, that's one of the things we loved. The location is just brilliant and te views are stunning. The pool on the beach is perfect. We booked two nights, but we stayed four, just because everything was so beautiful. The staff is very nice,... More

This is a beautiful hotel. Rooms are very nice and loved the part the bed is in a higher floor type thing. Gives more space on the ground floor. Pool was not so huge but it's very nice over looking the sea. Food was good too. This hotel is a wonderful place to relax and just a limited number of... More

The rooms are very comfortable and the balconies overlooking the ocean are amazing. The views are beautiful from the hotel. The best part is the food. Every meal was excellent. We were very happy with breakfast and our lunch and dinners. The staff was very nice and accommodating.

Spent one night at Antaloupe Aqua. Both my wife and I were quite happy with the experience, but the food could have been better. Customer Service was good as in all Sri Lankan outlets. If they spent a bit of time finding out the customer preference, rating could have been higher.

We had a great week at Aqua, adjoining rooms with our two children. All the staff were genuinely friendly and went out of their way to cater for the quirks of our children's needs at the Coconut restaurant. Rooms were contemporary cool and spotlessly clean (love the idea of the elevated beds) and the views from the balcony were stunning.... More

Dear Laura, We are extremely sorry that our hotel didn't meet your expectations. We take full responsibility for the view you have complained about. We had just finished renovation and we have a vertical garden mesh outside the room that covers the area visible to the AC's of the other room and the car park. The mesh has fallen apart... More

With a near empty beach, a great infinity plunge pool and a range of rooms to suit any need this is a great spot to relax and explore the local area. Credit to the staff who were fantastic, check out their other hotel Levels also. Highly recommend. www.danflyingsolo.com
