A beautiful hotel, in idyllic surroundings, staffed by the friendliest, most helpful, staff we have ever encountered anywhere in the world. Getting around on the island, which used to be a pain, is better than in previous years, thanks to the countries investment in the transport infrastructure since the end of the war, and will, we are sure, continue to rapidly improve in the future. The rooms in the hotel, as with a large part of the hotel itself, have been recently redecorated and upgraded and the new décor is excellent. If we were really pushed to level a criticism it would be that the new décor in the Tease Bar was too dark and we found the multitude of low suspended ornate metal lights to be obstructive and oppressive. Apart from this minor irritation nothing was too much trouble for the staff and any request was greeted with happy willingness. We will be returning to Sri Lanka, and this hotel, again next year (our 4th visit) and would recommend this island, and particularly this wonderful hotel, to any couple who have already done the European, Mediterranean, America's thing and are looking to upgrade to a vacation on an island, and in a hotel, which is an elixir to the mind, and body, and leaves the aforementioned alternative vacation-al locations in the shade.
