The rooms were all updated, comfortable and clean. The staff was always willing to help, efficient and very friendly. Loved the big pool and surroundings. The rooms up in the tower/hill... More

The contrast was unimaginable and it is a worth while experience. The tastefully... More

A very charming luxurious and beautiful Hotel very close to Unawatuna beach.The staff are very attentive without being intrusive. I'm so glad we chose this hotel and would definitely recommend it. The rooms are so spacious we even had a palm tree growing in our room. A very special retreat!
