Excellent hotel in a wonderful location. It is a long journey from the airport on very bumpy, busy roads but once we entered the huge gate the journey was forgotten as we were greeted by the staff and saw the view through the foyer onto the swimming pool and ocean. Throughout our stay all the staff were helpful and attentive and made our holiday very enjoyable. As we were there to attend our son's wedding we would like to thank Gayani the wedding coordinator for making the day run so smoothly. We stayed in an Ocean View room which was spacious and well equipped and the housekeeping staff were very keen to please. We were on full board and found plenty of choice although the al a carte menu does not change. They were happy to provide us with packed lunches for the day we went to Yala National Park. All in all a beautiful hotel in a superb location. We had a great stay and would not hesitate to return.
