We arrived on a Saturday afternoon. It was billed as a haven of peace and tranquillity. We went to bed early as we had a 5am start the next day. We quickly learned that adjacent to the hotel is the Jetwing Club. This is a down-market apartment block. They had loudspeakers set up on the lawn and were playing loud...

We were not staying at the hotel, but we stopped by to see the work of Geoffrey Bawa the well known architect who had designed the Hotel. The hotel staff was graceful to permit us to look around. (That we had architect among us and the fact that we had made reservations to visit Bawa’s residence in Colombo also helped)....

A beautiful Hotel with some amazing design details due to the architect Geoffrey Bawa, the famous Sri Lankan architect. Superb vast bed room beautifully furnished and well maintained. Beach and pools superb. Food is fine but quite expensive - certainly by Sri Lanka standards. If you can get a good value full board deal then take it. Galle not far...

We were staying in a sister hotel and visited the spa here. The staff were very professional and the therapists excellent. We decided to stay for lunch which was well presented and tasted good. The service was also professional and friendly. Worth a visit.
