After having read the last review I can only agree that front of house service was very indifferent from the non existent welcome to the very cost driven "goodbye".The food is literally inedible though it is delivered with a smile.The bungalows are comfortable but the lack of decent attention to client needs and just plain simple courtesy cannot make up for this.Please come with your escape plan because you will be charged an arm and a leg to get anywhere else. The area will have something to recommend it in maybe three years but wait until they have learnt from their mistakes. The price is ok I grant you but the experience will leave you exasperated and ready for another holiday.If you are the type of person that loves to be exploited by the accountant who can't be bothered to solve problems but keeps punching away at his bill without acknowledging you then go but don't say you weren't warned . I can think of other places I can recommend you spend your hard earned holiday on..don't belive the hype.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The founders of Ulpotha, the highly acclaimed retreat in the heartland of old Ceylon (see TripAdvisor listing) together with a close friend renowned in the marine adventure and water sports worlds, have opened a unique and captivatingly quirky beach resort on the western peninsula of this tear-shaped island. Situated on an undiscovered and deserted two kilometer stretch of a pristine private beach, Alankuda Beach offers a truly relaxing, discrete and romantic getaway. The azure, warm ocean is almost always mirror-calm and welcoming during the months of October to May. The coastal waters offer the treasures of dolphin and whale watching as well as snorkeling over nearby spectacular coral formations. In addition there is deep-sea fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, kite and wind surfing. Alankuda Beach is situated 3 hours north of Colombo and just over 2 hours from the airport. There is a range of accommodation along the beach all managed by Alankuda Beach, so there is something for everyone. ... more less
