Great experience !!! Thank you Palitha the restaurant manager and staff for the exceptional service. Splendid view and clean rooms with great facilities. Loved every minute. We took 4 rooms and came with friends and family. The resort is really big. So lots of walking. The view is breathtakingly beautiful. Nice big pool. Will be back for sure. Thank you

The rooms are extremely big and spacious, but the entire hotel looks a little tired and in need of a lick of paint and some refurbishment. Aside from breakfast which was nice, the food was also very disappointing; both in terms of spread and taste.

We booked a triple room and the rooms were small as they mentioned before the booking so there's nothing to complain about it. But the bed linen had an old stock smell and also the roller bed mattress they provided was just the spring and no foam on it.. You can literally feel like being punished to sleep on a spring whole night and my husband woke up with a body pain. Food was good and the staff in the restaurant was also very helpful. The beach and pool was clean and it was the only thing we enjoyed. The hotel definitely needs an upgrade on their rooms, bathroom and linen.

We stayed as a family in the month of December. At Check-In we were informed that one of the rooms we had booked was not available and we would have to shift to a lower category room. Finally after much wrangling we were offered a room of similar category but very far from the other rooms which wasn’t really practical as we were staying as a family but we made do. The food was average, the rooms in general, even the refurbished rooms were below average. The only saving grace for this property is the stunning location which gives it access to two main beaches and even a smaller almost private beach in between. The property is old and it shows. The design is old. It would be forgivable if the pricing was not over and above what other more modern 5-stars are charging in Sri Lanka at the moment.
