We stayed here for one night at the end of november and stayed in suite 3. This hotel is literally right next door to club villa hotel. The hotel is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed, the room was beautiful and massive, the bar area and pool so beautifully designed. The hotel is not on the beach, you need to walk over the railway line and then you walk a hundred metres or so and you are there, but you need to walk along further to swim in the sea. You can't see the sea from the hotel. The railway line runs right along the bottom of the garden, this was unique and added some enjoyment whilst sun bathing, the noise was Ok and didn't interrupt our sleep.
We ate at the hotel for lunch and dinner and the food was expensive comparatively and really really not good, the worst food we had in Sri Lanka, If you stay here I would recommend you eat out. I appreciate this could be what we ordered and am not one to complain but the chicken tandoori I had was absolutely awful.
Overall beautiful setting and this is why i scored highly, but if you want a hotel on the beach then this isn't for you and finally hotel was let down by awful food which is a shame as with the setting it could be amazing.
