We stayed in the Hawsbill villa which was perfect for a small family. It was very relaxing and the staff were very accommodating and helpful. There was only one other couple staying during the time we were there, so it felt like we had our very own private villa! Special

Its about a 2 hour drive from the airport along the new expressway. There is very limited public transport in Sri Lanka so the best way is to book a private driver with the hotel which will cost you about USD100. Enjoy your trip

do you have a kids club?
No kids club the hotel only has about 12 rooms. Lovely hotel but I wouldn't recommend it for people looking for kids entertainment as its more for couples.
