Great hotel with great view
Great hotel for the country standards even if we had pb with the shower (cold water, no warm water). Food is good but little pricy (no other options as the hotel is kind of isolated). Desserts are not the things they master! Sea view is really relaxing and nice.

good value for money, small resort
Overall a good stay, great views from the balcony, right on the beach. Limited vegetarian options, expected more traditional Sri Lankan vegetarian options. If you are going to stay in the resort and eat at the restaurant than it can get a bit monotonous. Breakfast was great, no complaints. The room's DND sign only works if you leave the key in the room to activate the power, so probably want 2 keys for the room. Great resort for couples (every one else staying was also a couple). Not much to do in the area, apart from a village tour to see cinnamon production and visit the local turtle farm. The Spa was excellent, the masseuse did a great job relaxing us both to the point where we fell asleep. Overall, for the price it was a good stay. Would I stay here again? possibly, but if my budget allowed for it, would probably stay at the more well known resorts, they probably cost double what this place does, but i think food/restaurant options would be better.

Very high standard hotel
We stayed 3 nights and the hotel is of a very good standard. Service is great, especially the restaurant staff and chef. Directly backs on to the beach. The prices are higher than local restaurants as you would expect from this type of hotel, but the food was good enough to justify this. The only slight negative is that a handful of locals trying to get your custom hang around the beach so you will be approached immediately when walking on the beach, the hotel could have managed this better in the immediate vicinity of the hotel at least.

Amazing hotel: exceptional service and views
The hotel is a real getaway place - there is nothing actually near the hotel to spend time, but the hotel makes it all for you. The food was great, the pool was cool, all rooms faced the ocean, the service was exceptional. Cannot wish for more, will definitely come back!
