Amazing sea front property with nice rustic design
Amazing property with infinity pool and great proximity to sea. Nice big rooms with great comfort and rustic interiors. Unique design of the room and bathroom within. While not of much beach area and not recommended for any sea sports. However the Welingama beach is a great beach and great for sea sports.

Wonderful boutique hotel with amazing staff
We stayed at this great hotel for four nights and received amazing service from our personal Butler, Janaka. Food and drink options were great - with both a la carte and different themed buffet options every evening. Our suite was huge and extremely well equipped - the nicest hotel room I have ever stayed in. The only problem is that the bar is now set too high for future hotel stays!! Highly recommended.

Fortress is definitely a resort at which to relax
This was the 5th stop on our tour - basically to relax. When we arrived, the tall front walls and entrance gates resembled a fortress. Beyond was a magnificent veranda and the sea! Reception staff were very attentive and greeted us while our room was readied. The room was on the ground floor, large, comfortable and included a plunge pool. Food options were many, including buffet options. The breakfast buffet was excellent, including Sri Lankan food. Staff fabulous. A lovely place to stay and relax. We will definitely stay there again.
