We chose to spend 7 nights in the South and then finishing up with 7 nights in the North. We had seen this hotel on the web and it enticed us to try it, so we pushed our travel agent a little.
WHAT a gem this place is!! - gracious - inclusive - well mannered etc. The owner goes around to all the guest before dinner and talks to all! When she was away - her "right hand" carried on.
The food is very good - but the service is the best - these employees excel.
Vine selection is very good and enjoyable priced.
Their catamaran boat trip to Flat island and the Governor House is a MUST! Forget the cost - it is worth every rupee and more.
One comment: the staff prefers French to English - but we had NO PROBLEMS.
We swam from the "beach" - but this is not the "mile long sand beach" - great for grownups.
