The boutique hotel comprises of 12 Balinese-inspired pavilions, spread over 5 acres of landscaped gardens dotted with coconut palms and lotus ponds. Each pavilion offers a sumptuous bedroom, large living and dining areas, a marble bathroom with Jacuzzi, a kitchenette. The delightful outdoor area features a private plunge pool, and a wooden sundeck with outdoor dining space. With an emphasis on personal service, Serene Pavilions can craft your dream escape. Start the day with breakfast served by your private butler by your plunge pool, or take a dip in the Indian Ocean. Unwind in your villa, where a mix of Sri Lankan and Balinese furnishings create a natural style and tranquil atmosphere. Play tennis, swim a few laps in the central pool, enjoy a spa treatment, or sit back on the beach and wait for the spellbinding sunset. For dinner, choose from the daily menu, or book a private dining session and give the chef free reign to create something new. Then enjoy a nightcap at Amritha Bar as you listen to the waves roll in.

Serene pavilions is one of the best hotel I have ever been. We spent 15th & 16th Oct 2021 in Ocean view villa and it was a different experience to us. Staff was also friendly from the beginning. Special thanks to Praveen who provided a great service for us. Foods were delicious. however my favorite was milkrice with chicken curry. The If you are looking for a change from day to day busy life, Serene Pavillions is the best place.

If you want a secluded stay then this is the place as each room suite is surrounded by a brick wall. But the downside of that is you feel a bit detached from the rest of the place. Hotel itself is little over 10 yrs old but needs a bit of a face-lift to get to its full glory. Nevertheless it has a well spread out garden which gives a cozy feeling. The food was tasty but having a set menu could improve upon the variety. Something special about the place is that each suite has an assigned Butler whom you can call for anything - he would gladly serve the meals to your own suite if you desire so. We had Praveen serving us who looked into every care to make our stay comfortable.

It was great 2 days with joy, relaxing, delicious foods, safe and privacy. It’s very safe to travel since it has very minimum people contamination specifically during present conditions. We enjoyed with a butler named Harsha who served us very well. Extremely delicious foods and customer service. Hotel interior and facilities are above the line. Good place to visit. Why should I try again. Nisha Karunaratne
