We went there directly after a night in the plane travelling from Europe. Very good welcome. Although planned room were upstairs, we needed a ground floor accomodation, which was made available in a few minutes, despite our arrival before normal check-in time. Service is wonderful, all staff is very friendly. Buffet is great. View on the see is astonishing.

We stayed here for one night to start our Sri Lankan honeymoon and were not disappointed! We were upgraded to a spectacular suite! It was just a shame we weren't staying longer to enjoy it more!! The food was delicious and the local entertainment on the evening was fantastic. A wonderful start to our trip!

A very comfortable and relaxing hotel to chill out after a long journey. Top class service with outstanding hospitality. A fantastic swimming pool with spa and a super view out over the Indian Ocean. You can take a leisurely walk along the beach but is not advisable to swim in the ocean as the under current and smashing waves against... More

The hotel is a short tuk tuk ride from Galle centre. The hotel have insured tuk Tuks and drivers available for 600 rupees return and they will wait for you in Galle. Drivers were very good but will try to upsell tours and other trips. The rooms are large and uniquely designed with wooden floors and lots of dark wood... More
