I am not a hotel lover and would worry about spending all of a holiday in just one hotel but this place is different and i would go back to the Lighthouse (and go no further) at the drop of a hat. It is a stunning building in a beautiful spot with excellent service and style.

While we were there a couple were having their wedding ceremony on the terrace and it was a dramatic and romantic spot - made me change my mind about getting married abroad as I'd always thought that it would inevitably be tacky.

The pools are lovely, the food wonderful ( particularly the buffets and breakfasts) and the rooms amazing. The spa is really good and I had a wonderful massage, witht the masseuse swinging on a rope and using her feet to do some of the treatment.

Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. I love hotels that will not let people reserve sunbeds via towels etc and here if a bed was left unattended for 20 mins then things on it got tidied away.
The beach is right in front of the hotel but not vety inviting at the time we stayed there. But this was no problem with such lovely hotel grounds and pools. It was very difficult to tear ourselves away and visit amazing Galle.

I agree with a previous review about the underused rooftop restaurant- we had a Christamas Eve meal there and while the food was good it did lack atmosphere as there were so few of us in the room.
