Travelling to the hotel for nearly 5 hours on a Saturday evening was the only bad thing.
We stayed here for four nights, the room, the pool and the restaurant was great. The menu in the restarant was limited but everything we tried was excellent.
The staff were kind, generous, very happy to help.
The price of wine compared to other star class hotels in Sri Lanka was excessive. The cheapest wines at the hotel was about £25 bottle. But in the surroundings, the smell and sound of the ocean, may be its a small price to pay.
We will definitely go back.
