When first entering the hotel we were surprised by the lay-out and design. It is a low, converted colonial bungalow. It was designed by Geoffrey Bawa a world famous architect in Sri Lanka.
The design is rigorously maintained. This means that comfort and practicality do sometimes suffer. Nice looking chaires on the balcony, not comfortable. Toilet in full site of other room-users. Lighting in the dininghall so low that you don't see what is on your plate. Lack of other colours than white, grey and black.
The location is fantastic, if you don't mind the railroadtrack 3 meters next to the garden.
The track was under reconstruction, so there was no bother. However I am told that it going to be fasttraintrack between Colombo and Galle. I fear that it will be a different story then.
I agree with ''Brasur'' that for the price one could expect something different, howvere the suites are adequate for that climate.
Lovely, helpful staff, from the receptionist to the poolboy. Excellent and surprising kitchen !
