Our party of 4, ranging in age from 6 to 84 had a really enjoyable stay here. This beautiful property is situated 10 mins or so from Galle Fort, but we were happy to be a bit removed from the bustle. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the rooms surround a lawned area. The pool is in a picturesque setting and we saw plenty of monkeys around and even a mongoose. At the bottom of the property there is an attractive river with a couple of canoes you can use to paddle down the river. The staff were amazing - from the cooling welcome drink to kicking the soccer ball around with my son on the lawn (we found Sri Lankans generally to be wonderful with children) and many of the staff enquired after my father when he was unwell and didn't leave his room one day - nothing was too much trouble. Particular thanks to Mr Agith Fardi and Rohan for their excellent and professional service and to Neel, Rangana and Chameere for their smiles and playing with my son - he loved it. You may hear some of the wildlife running across the roof in the early hours but it didn't disturb us. Rooms very spacious and elegant with wonderful bathrooms. Ask for a tour of the suites in the original harbour master's house - worth a look and if your budget stretches, don't hesitate. Suite rooms are sufficiently large for a family with extra beds, a massive bathroom and balcony with wonderful view across the harbour.
