Stopped for Lunch on our way to Colombo from Hambantota. Very friendly welcome by the GM as we arrived and enquired about having lunch. The outdoor seating at the restaurant has spectacular views of the ocean. The wait staff were very attentive and as a vegetarian I was especially looked after by Kasun. Will definitely come again.

Food is good. But service is very poor and the prices are way too much and the menu is in a laminated A4 sheet which impacts the cheap look. the view is amazing and the location is perfect. Service should be improved and the prices should be reasonable.

A very nice hotel with a great location, right on the beach. The swimming pool is amazing, restaurant and Ocean view just perfect. Our room in front of the beach and the view was amazing. The beach in front of the hotel and the land area is so bog and you can easily find your own piece of quite.
