Yes it is true, this is the place to come and just bliss out at the end of a busy tour of Sri Lanka, we couldn't of done it any better than staying here for a 2 night stay.
We had a Garden Pavilion and it was lovely. We were shown the Ocean view one as well, but we preferred that the garden one was more private. The villa had a lovely private plunge pool as well as the main swimming pool which we could have used if we wanted to with four jacuzzi beds.
The grounds are very well kept and landscaped, and the beach front area was very pretty, so you can hear the sound of the sea without even being on the beach. Our butler was called Ash and was very friendly and helpful. The food was excellent, and the view when eating simply wonderful. Yes it wasn't cheap, but we both felt so relaxed and de-stressed by the end of this trip it was worth every penny. Very romantic place. I bought a very pretty ring from the jeweller on the resort. I saw a stone I really liked the look of, and he made it up into a ring for that very same night, what service! No idea if a paid a good price, but I love it so much I don't care!
The only problem we had is when we paid our bill, the system seemed to be down and it took forever to sort and felt they implied my card was to blame at first. I was a bit worried that they swiped my card so many times it may debit more than once so had to check with my bank just in case, but all was fine.
