We have just returned from a delightful stay, the staff were so friendly and caring. They discovered that it was my husbands birthday at breakfast on our departure day, within minutes we had a delicious birthday cake and the staff fussing over us, lovely. The location is some way from Galle, which suited us to be away from the hussle... More

Aqua is a tuktuk ride from Unawatuna, which is cheap and always available. The hotel has a fresh clean feel to it, but it is a bit shy of a 5 point rating. The food is okey, but not spectacular. The staff is friendly and helpful. The pool is a lot smaller than I imagined from the pictures, but it... More

Beautiful pool overlooking the sea. Long stretch of white sand. The only sound you get is of waves hitting the shore. It's a beautiful property with not too many people. The rooms at the top looking at the sea are simply amazing.

Spent four nights at this lovely hotel and wish we could have stayed here more. The view is amazing, the rooms are clean and the staff is incredibly nice. The hotel has a very nice atmosphere and is located just in front of a beautiful beach where you can enjoy a meal or just sit and relax. I would definitely... More

We stayed in one of the standard ground-floor rooms, which was spacious, very nicely decorated and extremely functional - everything worked. Breakfast was superb, with a wide choice of European, healthy and Asian options, and total flexibility to mix and match between the options. Service is exceptional - Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful - they were... More

stayed here recently with a group of 6 people. Absolutely loved it. The rooms are very spacious and clean, with beautiful views over the sea. But what made it so special was the staff, who couldn't do enough for you and always with a huge smile on their faces! We asked about a special Sri Lankan dish (hoppers) purely out... More

I stayed here for a family trip & we booked 3 rooms, play, ultra zen & chic. All rooms were amazing, I personally liked the ultra zen as the loft bed meant more living space but it would not b suitable if u had difficulty with stairs as the stairs to the bed were rather steep. The hospitality of the... More

This hotel is on a busy road, but is insulated from most of the road noise by a high wall. However the most pleasing sounds come from the other side, being situated almost on the beach, the sound most heard is that of the waves gently breaking on the sand. The up and down the coast are just fabulous. The... More
