Travelers' Choice
It is a place to relax, rejuvenate, and experience heritage, culture, nature and the way of life in the remote south of Sri Lanka. A resort located in an area where you can also surf and dive. From the lush green garden walk on to the golden sandy beach where you can see the natural reef breaking the blue water to a gentle wave which transforms to a tiny bubbly ripple. Swaying and whispering palms blended with the sound of waves on the quiet beach takes you through a journey of serenity. The long lonely stretch of beach offers you peace in abundance and a dip in the warm Indian Ocean is rejuvenating. Lie under a palm tree and relax on this unpolluted stretch of beach. Learn the art of stilt fishing – a mastery passed down from generation to generation and enjoy the only village of stilt fishing in the world.

The staff were friendly and the food was good. The pool was great and the sunset views on the water were fabulous. Small eroding beach and huge waves. Ok for surfers but swimming is difficult. The best part of my stay was their Yoga instructor, Priyantha Hettige, who is the Southern Province Chief Instructor, an accomplished Yoga Master and an incredible human being. Very inspiring to work with him. He was the best Yoga instructor I have ever met. Priyantha sure helped me loosen up after a long trip and he made my 2-week quarantine fly by stress-free. We worked on Pranayama as well as Hatha Yoga Asanas. Priyantha is incredibly knowledgeable and proficient at all things Yoga. Worth the stay just for the Yoga!

From the moment we arrived we have felt well taken care of. In terms of Covid regulations they really are doing everything they can to keep everyone safe. Clean rooms, wonderful staff and great food! We feel we won the quarantine lottery and would recommend Insight to anyone who is wanting to have a relaxing and peaceful time away.

My wife and I completed 14 days in quarantine at this hotel and I don’t have enough words to express how happy we are about this hotel. From the beginning when we did the booking, Dilani and Kosala were very helpful and gave all the information that we wanted to know. Being abroad, it was very easy to deal with them. The day we arrived, the staff took care of us very well and Dilani made sure to give us a nice room. We were so impressed by the courtesy of the staff. They were kind, always smiling and ready to help. For example, Sisira, together with Shanka, organized for my wife to work remotely by selecting a place, which has fast internet connection. They connected a cable under shady and cool trees and my wife enjoyed so much working there. She said she never experienced doing office work in an atmosphere like this before. The hotel restaurant has great buffet breakfast and dinner. It has got great variety of food choices and the food is fresh and delicious. They provide different kind of food every day. The staff is very professional, friendly and helpful. They go out of their way to satisfy us. Here, I like to mention Ravindra, Saman, Manjula, Dharme and Rohan who treated us really well. One time, there was a special Sr Lankan fruit which was finished by the time we arrived for breakfast. Once they got to know that we love that fruit, the Chef of the hotel, Namal, went out of the way, by ordering the fruit and got it for us within one day. I also like to mention the great cooks, Madhushan and Sajith. Their dishes are amazing. The rooms are clean and are in good standard. Sampath and Sadun made sure to keep our rooms clean. They are amazing and very creative, making beds so nice with nice creations. It’s just 10 seconds to walk to the beach and it is extremely beautiful. The view and the sound from the ocean are splendid. We enjoyed so much the sunny coastal walks every day. The pool is also amazing, nice and very clean. The pool attendant and lifeguard Shanka was very helpful and always took good care of us. When we went to the sea, he came with us and waited till we came out. He is such a dedicated person. The staff at the Reception are also very nice, friendly and helpful. Whenever we have requests for special goods that are not available in the hotel, they always organized to get them from outside. Sadly, our two weeks went very fast. Wish we could stay longer. We will for sure go there again. We have already recommended this hotel to many of our friends and would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to spend a nice holiday in a relaxing atmosphere. Thank you, dear hotel staff, for everything!

Stayed for 14 days in quarantine and must say it was the most pleasant and wonderful stay. The staff starting from Niroshan resident manager Dilani front office manager Sisira housekeeping manager Supun head chef Ravindra restaurant executive Nishant waiter and everyone from the staff of the hotel were really friendly would go out of the way to help you and made sure that the guest were happy. Their hardwork and dedication is commendable and I would recommend this place to everyone who's coming to sri Lanka. The location of the hotel is out of the world and the food that was served everyday was just superb and really fresh and tasty. I don't have enough words to thank them for making my stay so pleasant and comfortable. Thank you.
