I stayed here for two nights and was thoroughly disappointed. The hotel was totally devoid of any atmosphere whatsoever and is isolated on the main Galle road with nothing but other large hotels nearby. It appears to cater for tour groups or package deals. As the place was so grim I went into Unawatuna (a very long journey in a tuk tuk) for dinner. When I returned (approximately 11.30) the front gate was closed and padlocked. After knocking loudly for about ten minutes nobody came to the gate. In the end I had to climb over the nine foot wall of the hotel. Once on the other side there were no staff or security at reception to give me my key so I had to find my own room key (just left on the counter as it turns out).
I could not recommend this hotel to anyone unless you like having to climb a perimeter wall before bed.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It is a place to relax, rejuvenate, and experience heritage, culture, nature and the way of life in the remote south of Sri Lanka. A resort located in an area where you can also surf and dive. From the lush green garden walk on to the golden sandy beach where you can see the natural reef breaking the blue water to a gentle wave which transforms to a tiny bubbly ripple. Swaying and whispering palms blended with the sound of waves on the quiet beach takes you through a journey of serenity. The long lonely stretch of beach offers you peace in abundance and a dip in the warm Indian Ocean is rejuvenating. Lie under a palm tree and relax on this unpolluted stretch of beach. Learn the art of stilt fishing – a mastery passed down from generation to generation and enjoy the only village of stilt fishing in the world. ... more less
