This "resort" has two seprate entries on Trip Advisor. I already wrote one on the other entry. But, just in case, I want to reiterate that this place was a complete disappointment. There was supposed to be yoga, but there was not. The owner was rude and made us feel unwelcome. The rooms were so hot I could not breath. There were wild dogs on the property that attacked one of my friends. The staff was nice, but the bad outweighed the good. The food there is also good, but hard to enjoy if everything else is bad. It also took way too long to get there from the airport. There are many other places to stay in Sri Lanka - avoid this one!

The owners were rude, the "resort" if you can call it that, was not comfortable. The rooms were so hot I could not breath. The staff was nice but because the owners made you feel like you were unwelcome there, the staffs niceness was not as prominent as it should have been. There were wild dogs on the property. Some of them attacked my friend. The people at the resort said to beat them with a stick or knee them! There are so many other places in Sri Lanka to go to...do not go to this one!

I stayed here for a few ngihts in the off season and loved it. I stayed in a bungalow, which is very comfortable, clean, and spacious, with a lovely front porch. Samantha, the owner/manager is very friendly, very helpful, and an all around nice guy. The food is exceptional - consistently the best I had in Sri Lanka and with a lot more variety than you find elsewhere. You can eat fish just caught by local fishermen. You eat on an outdoor terrace with a view of the sea.The beach is small, but very pretty with some dramatic rocks and is shared with very friendly fishermen (some of whom I went out with for a few hours). Other beaches are within walking distance. The water is a little rough during the monsoon, but I was told quite calm in high season. The guest house has sea kayaks. For temple buffs, Mulkirigala is wonderful and definitely worth the trip- it's Dambulla without the crowds.

I found Rocky Point after reading a tip from a guest who'd had an ambivalent experience at the neighbouring Palms Paradise Resort. My parter and I booked for 5 nights in November 2007. It was just the end of the low season and we were the only guests. we were made to feel so welcome and almost felt like we were a part of the family! The owners are an American couple who spend some months of the year on site. The place is competently managed and run by a team of kind and obliging locals.

Rocky Point has a strong emphasis on Yoga. They have a yoga studio on site. Unfortunately the Yoga teacher wasn't around during our stay.

Our private bungalow was simple but very comfortable. There is no hot water in the bathrooms, and no A/C but the weather is generally warm enough for a cool shower to be pleasant and refreshing (especailly after an early morning swim in the sea), and fans, polished concrete flooring and natural ventilation kept the bungalow comfortably cool. My only gripe with the accommodation would be that proper sheets aren't provided for the beds. They have instead kind of cotton bed covers. Next time I stay, I'm actually tempted to take my own linen to make sleeping a bit more comfortable.

Food was an absolute highlight. The nightly rice and curry was delicious, especially when washed down with a local beer. We also ate locally caught panfried kingfish one night which was absolutely sensational in its freshness and simplicity. The kitchen staff were happy to chat and make recommendatons for meals and seem to be happy to take requests for things not on the menu. Food prices were very very reasonable and quantities enormous!

Rocky Point staff are happy to call up a Tuk Tuk for trips into town or to nearby temples etc.

Rocky point doesn't have a beach of its own (the name is a bit of a giveaway as to its location). However there is a choice of fairly quiet public beaches on either side. To the left is a relatively sheltered beach in front of Palm Paradise and to the right, 10 minutes over the hill, is the beautiful palm fringed beach that the huge (and seemingly almost always deserted) Aman resort sits on. It was with a slight sense of inward gloating that we sat on this beautiful beach - the same beach that Aman guest were paying over 10 times as much to enjoy. Yet somehow, I think our experience at Rocky Point was far more authentic, relaxing and enjoyable than being cocooned in the rarified air of a megaresort like Aman. Even though we can probably almost afford to stay at Aman, next time I'm back in the south of Sri Lanka, I'l lbe heading straight to Rocky Point again.
