Superb view from the rooms, n very courteous staff. Perfect destination for honeymoon. Best time to visit is December to February. Well equipped gym with qualified trainer. Long beach in front of the hotel makes it lovely to spend evenings taking strolls or hang around at the beach side open lounge bar.

Very Nice beach. Can see & hear the roar of the waves in the room. Neat & clean rooms, swimming pool. Wide spread of buffet, however limited choice for Indian Vegetarian. For water sports you have to go a few kilometers to Bentota.
