The location of this resort is stunning and a lot of trouble has gone into making the accommodation fit in with the surroundings. We stayed in a ground floor room and the view from our balcony of the Ella Gap was just wonderful. The decor is a bit out of the Flintstones and if you can live with that then you'll have a great stay. The only let down was the dining area which at dinner is totally soulless and needs someone to take charge of the whole dining experience. The food was a curious mix of western and Sri Lankan (all served at rhe same time) and having talked to the chef I can understand why. His experience is in large hotels in Dubai and so he has adapted a buffet style approach to serving a 5 or 6 course meal to each table. His Sri Lankan cooking was great so there's lots of potential. The rest of the staff were very helpful so I'd say it's a great place to stay for one night just for the view.
