Hotel is approx 1 kilometer from the main road down a bumpy dirt road. This is rural Sri Lanka so this is part of the experience! Hotel is spread across 24 acres with lots of space between villas. We stayed in one of the higher range villas with our own private terrace and pool, with a large bedroom and WC on upper level and a large open air bathroom on ground floor.
However, construction seems rather old and when it rained heavily on our first night, we had 3 leaks come through the thatched roof into our bedroom at 1am (including onto our bed). This wasn't part of the "experience" we necessarily paid $500 a night (full board) for so we complained and were immediately moved in the night to another room and then back to the same category of villa the morning after.
The food/beverage is very good with an internationally experienced Sri Lankan chef who makes a real effort to be creative with consistently good quality food and reasonably priced wines given the location.
Attitude of the waiters, housekeeping and grounds staff is very sweet and their genuine desire to please makes up for many other shortcomings.
If the room rate was lower priced, I would rate the resort with 4 stars, but at this price range, they need to deliver more.
