Stayed here at the start of our trip of three months around Asia. It's a little pricey in comparison to other places - but you get great quality for it. Villas are really lovely, well equipped with kitchen and open air bathroom. Very large and spacious. The pool is recently completed and is very lovely! The main thing here is... More

About 4 kilometers from the beach and city center, but worth the tuktuk ride (300 rupees). Best pool we had in Sri Lanka. The owner and his wife are taking care of you, lovely people! Little remark: breakfast and use of AC is not included. But the rooms are great, especially the bath room. Great place to start or end... More

We were only here for less than 12 hours as we arrived after 1 am and left after breakfast the next day. The owner was there to welcome us with refreshing drinks and help us to settle into our comfortable rooms. We didn't have much chance to use all facilities provided. But overall the place is clean and neat. One... More

Large, beautiful and well-appointed (stand-alone) cabins with open-air bathroom, set in a nice garden. Small kitchen and fridge, so you could prepare some food if needed. Each cabin has a terrace with seats to enjoy the garden, and there is also a pool. They serve a generous Sri-Lankan breakfast. The owner/manager is very welcoming and helpful, if you have a... More
