A new boutique hotel with lack of sign board. We landed at midnight and our driver could not find the hotel since he was not aware on this new hotel (in fact, he was not from Negombo/Colombo). Word of advice - if you are going to arrive late night, please ensure your driver check out the location during the day time. The hotel is not far from Jetwing Beach. Turn into junction where there is a shop renting bikes.
The hotel consists of rooms and suite. We got a suite on top floor. For those who have knee problems, not recommend to stay on higher floor since there is no elevator and the stairs are narrow.
Suite got a stove for cooking, a small dining fit for four pax and a balcony. Only one toilet though, attached to the bedroom. Slippers come in handy since the floor is cemented - a bit cold.
The pool is situated in between the suite building and main breakfast area. Breakfast is simple - toast, fruits and egg station. Service is personalized (probably because it is a new place).
Bathroom amenities are from SpaCeylon brand. Very nice.
Most important factor --> free WiFi ... yes!!!!!
