This is one peace of gem you should never give a miss. An amazing hotel - cut off from the buzz, near the shore.. it has an amazing infinity pool and the ocean adjacent to it. We had booked a Ocean suite at the resort - the approach road to the hotel is a bad one, but once you are inside the premises of the hotel - you are in the lap of luxury.
The room had an amazing view of the ocean and the bathtub too :-). The rooms were so spacious and had a pleasing and welcoming vibe with the very own courtyard and tree.The beach so clean and good amazing water. So you could dive into the sea and swim like crazy and then back into the infinity pool.
The food was amazing. After leaving India, i was longing to get my hands on some biriyani - and i tried it at the resort. It was AMAZING - chicken biriyani was muglai style and spot on. Their cook did an amazing job in whatever he cooked - th edinner was amazing and the breakfast had an amazing spread of continental food. There are guys roaming around the periphery of the hotel (near the beach) - telling you the hotel food pricing is high and they can arrange for a tuk-tuk to some other hotel, where food is cheap and affordable. I didn't look at their menu, but after having the food at the resort, there was no looking back - because the resort served the best food and amazing taste. In fact after leaving wadduwa i tried at other hotels i stayed, but i couldn't get the good taste ever again.
The staff is very friendly and they are too eager to be at your service. Well, i did the mistake of booking for a single traveler, and didn't notice it until i checked in at the hotel. They hotel was okay with that - and they allowed my wife without any extra charges. The decor of the room, stay and food was amazing experience - maybe we will come back and just stay there for 3-4 days just lazying it out on the vacation and enjoying the rich experience.
Wifi is available at the lobby only. - the only issue i could see.
