We stayed two nights Magpul UBR, the rooms in the new wing overlooking the pool are luxurious, large, clean, comfortable. The bathroom was huge with tub. The food was great, the hotel is very expensive compared to the standard of Sri Lanka, but it is really good. Attention massages are cheap but are held in a kind of cell in... More

Lovely place to go, specially for winter vacation. The service was great. And suggest with rooms on the ground floor, so you can enjoy the yard. But the menu of buffet is almost similar everyday. You can look around for some restaurant. But for just a couple of days relaxing, its good. Bright sunshine.

I stayed at this resort twice now and can't wait to get back again to do absolutely nothing. The staff are very friendly and attentive. I stayed at the off peak season it was like having my own butler attending to my every whim! The room was exceptionally clean and the resort quiet for a rejuvenating night's sleep. The wifi... More

The rooms are nice but the standard rooms with no views and no windows in most rooms is not worth the money at all. Some rooms have the view of the sea but are terribly expensive. Food is outstanding except for the hoppers. Herbal porridge is one of the best I have had in Sri Lanka. Check in process is... More

Very enjoyable overnight stay in a luxury room. Hotel is right on the beach and a great place to have a drink as the waves roll in. The luxury room was just that-a luxury-we had views of the ocean from the balcony. Bed was the best we slept in during our 10 days in Sri Lanka. The outstanding memory of... More

Excellent resort. Great rooms (cleaned twice a day), friendly staff and a hip bar near the beach. Best part, however, is the excellent restaurant. You will definitely enjoy your breakfast and don't forget the buffet at night. Definitely the best we had in Sri Lanka.

We were looking forward to a relaxing stay on the beach after a long drive from Ella. The hotel looked nice and modern. Check in was disappointing, staff were not friendly or welcoming, don't think there was even a smile. To make matters worse we were then told that the driver accommodation was full. I had previously emailed the hotel... More
