We all enjoyed the buffet style dining. Great choice and variety. We did the nature walk around the resort which was...

I visited this place with my girl for a day booking and the AC room with buffet lunch cost me 10,000/-. It was a unique experience as we had to park the car out and go to the hotel by a ferry. There are many things to do and see. Highly recommend this place.

Rooms, food, location and staff are veery nice! But the beach is not for you, if you are a beach lover! Water is grey to brown due to the river and closeness to Colombo i guess. It dosent look very clean.

Hotel Surroundings & Views are quite good. Rooms are neat and clean as well but the staff & services are very poor. Even the food is not that good. Its just average. One of the main concerns of the stay at this hotel was they're too strict on the dress code at their restaurant, its an open area next to...

Let me start with the bungalow itself which was excellent. The bathroom and bed were fine. Our experience then declined. To start with the poolside furniture was old and my lounger seemed to be rotting and had to use another. The evening meal was poor compared to what ywe had at other hotels and the breakfast wasn't much better. As...

Just 1hr drive from Kurunegala. Hotel was good, but not as expected as I could not see the details of hotel online before our tour. Even though 3* hotel, I can recommend it as 4* hotel except food. Beach is unclean and rough. Hope to stay again if we get a good deal.

I stayed here in September for 9 nights, in truth I was not sure what to expect as typically I dont do warm locations for breaks. However, what a fantastic experience. I went on my own and was welcomed warmly by the staff, any questions were answered and you were always treated with a smile. The food was delightful and...

Having read some negative reviews we were a little apprehensive about what to expect but we needn't have worried! We stayed here for 4 days before our onward journey to the Maldives & they were a very happy, relaxed & enjoyable 4 days! On arrival (after the unique ferry boat ride across the river!) we were warmly greeted & upgraded...
