We have spent a wonderful weekend at Satin Doll with friends. The spacious and well maintained garden with lots of trees and pool, makes it a great place for kids to play and have fun, while adults can relax and sip on a cool drink. The food is delicious, the views of the sea are stunning, the service is outstanding. Rooms are beautifully decorated, very clean and comfortable. We will be back soon.....

The staff were quite friendly, as was the resident dog, Millie! The location was pretty with its own private beach and a beautiful colonial home. We did have a nice time and were able to relax with the ocean breeze. :) That being said, there was no "wow factor" that so many Sri Lankan boutique hotels have (and that so many other reviewers boasted about). The room was perhaps the smallest we've stayed in on the island. Additionally, the food was... fine? It reminded us of the type of food you'd find at a chain restaurant in North America like an Applebees or something similar. Nothing wrong with it, but very generic. Sri Lanka has incredible food, so this was quite disappointing. Also, their menu only has a handful of options, so having to choose between the same few items each night felt a bit silly. One of the biggest draws for us to travel on the weekends is for the amazing cuisine offered at boutique hotels, but unfortunately this was not the case here. There was nothing wrong with Satin Doll at all - but there are many other truly breathtaking experiences to be had just kilometers away for a similar price.

Visited Satin Doll during the past weekend. We were a group of 6 adults and booked 3 rooms but had the whole place to ourselves. It is a wonderful place right beside the Galle road but perfectly hidden away from the hustle of the road. It has a perfect private beach and sweet little pool and a large well maintained garden. The ambience of the place is astounding. The staff and the meals were amazing. They were very helpful and thoughtful. Never did we have to "ask" for anything. They were very proactive and made sure our stay was super relaxing and perfect.
