We were surprised on arriving that the hotel was an Ayurvedic Spa and therefore no alcohol was available at the hotel bar. But this did not spoil our enjoyment as you could buy beer and wine locally and take into the restaurant. Shops are a tuc tuc drive away. All the rooms overlook either the Indian Ocean or the well...

we stayed here for a night during our round trip in Sri lanka. It all started with 'Zero expressions' staff.... Forget about a smile. The property is outstanding with a super view.. but unfortunately is terribly managed. The staff seems to be least interested in guests and their lack of interest contributes heavily to the deserted look of the hotel.....

I stayed here for three nights thinking it to be a great place based on old reviews. It seems the management has changed recently and hotel looks to be deserted and lifeless. There is no bar and no room service menu. The only restaurant does not serve the dishes on its menu and compels you to go for its buffets...

Communication was very poor.... Room was excellent Food was superb Service was average. But basically they chased us out due to lack of rooms. Beach is not good, hotel has not done anything to keep the beach clean and tidy.
