Such a nice hotel with great view and environment. Rooms are so nice and the jacuzzi adds extra comfort to the room. Really calming environment.food is really tasty specially the dinner buffet. Breakfast buffet didn’t have much variety as is expected of a five star hotel

This hotel is located on the beautiful west coast with sandy beaches. The 4 accommodation blocks are served by 2 large pools. We were disappointed however by the overall quality of the hotel, given that it had apparently won a global award in 2017. The bar was far too small

A stunning location on the beach with beautiful views out to sea. Lovely rooms. The staff however were not as friendly as all the other hotels on the tour which was disappointing and there was a buffet for dinner with no other options available - not easy for the vegetarian

We stayed here as part of a tour of Sri Lanka, very comfortable room, friendly staff and excellent food. Lovely pool, very relaxing, even spotted otters in the lagoon! A great start to our 2 week tour, would recommend for a couple of nights but a bit remote for a longer stay.

This hotel serves all kinds of other milks, but no soya milk. Sorry, your expectation cannot be met. Better find some other place.

Hi really sorry I will not be able to give a good answer to your question. We only went to the hotel and spend a couple of days there that's it ... boring I know :P

Yes there are. We didn't do it ourselves but from the hotel they do excursions for this. It's further south from chilaw but not very far. Not sure if there are specific seasons for this type of thing as when we went the sea was very choppy and we were not allowed in the sea from our hotel. The hotel staff are very friendly so email the hotel and ask the question. I hope this helps.
