Stayed one night at this hotel and would have stayed longer but they were fully booked. Room was spacious, especially the bathroom, pool was beautiful, restaurant was very nice and therapeutic spa was also lovely. Set well back from the street, so no street noise. King size bed was really comfortable. Walked down to the river at the end of... More

We stayed here for two nights as part of a group tour. The room was clean and spacious, as was the bathroom. The location itself is quite peaceful as you are tucked away from all the hustle and bustle. The Buffet was delicious with a good range of cocktails to try. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others travelling... More

The contemporary style rooms are spacious and quiet with a large bathroom and views from the large windows. The infinity style pool was lovely, the buffet breakfast wide ranging and of high quality, and the dinners were very good too. Best of all were the accommodating staff who dealt with my requests promptly and with a smile. The only downside... More

Vegetarian food choice is extremely poor (only options were sandwich & chips, and vegetable tempura and rice) Wifi only in the lobby (quite a walk from most rooms) Jacuzzi issues & uninterested staff - lengthy detail below. I had a lovely time in the area, but these things need fixing so other guests do not have to go through the... More

We are placed together with friends and have to complain immediately about the cleanness of the room which we were told it will be cleaned while we are away. When returned still wasn't comfortable to use the bathtub and dust were still present on the air ventilator. There is only one restaurant which does dinner and breakfast and the buffet... More

When driving through the area you see the usual tiny shops, tuc tuc's and markets of Sri Lanka and then you drive into this most serene hotel. The hotel itself invokes a feel of utter relaxation. The rooms are lovely and clean and have a huge en-suite bathroom. The pool has a set-up I have never seen before with it... More

Stayed two nights. Staff friendly especially Mahesh waiter/barman. Positives: pool, nice view of mango trees from room, close to tourist spots. Could improve: air con in room, food was average, wifi in room (could only use in lobby), shower pressure.

We had a very special experience. Spectacular ambience. Felt spoilt by the wonderfully helpful staff. The food was varied and catered for a broad range of guests. The Sri Lankan dishes were my favourite -every item was amazing. The rooms were large, spacious, very clean and modern.

We stayed here for two nights as a couple. The hotel itself is lovely , clean rooms with comfortable bed and a nice pool to relax in after dusty temple visits. However we were coming to the end of our 3 week visit and were shocked to find that we didn't get the usual warm Sri Lankan welcome or in... More

Great green setting by paddy field. Was so relaxing. Had a lovely room; spa bath didn't work but was a lovely shower. The pool is good and a relaxing spot. I had an amazing massage there by a very sweet woman. Food is average which is a shame. They were great at knowing what I could have with my Allergy... More
