Comfortable hotel in a good destination. Very tasty food at restaurant with reasonable prices (dinner buffet of $16, a la carte available as well). Romantic ambience in the night due to beautiful lightning. Hotel provides a vast variety of time-spending activities: waterpool (open from 8 am till 8 pm, that is usual for Sri Lanka), gym, yoga classes in the morning.
I had a great experience for the most part.
For the transportation from the airport, it should be specified that you have to send an email to get it. I understood and other people too, that it was included in the price. There's also no email to send your request.
This hotel is so beautiful and is exactly like their pictures. We've stayed in hotels all over the world and this is really something special. The staff are wonderful. They are really helpful but they also leave you alone when you want to just relax and enjoy the views. The food is top quality and everything is fresh. There are only a few guests so we always had the pool to ourselves and the beach in front is empty and beautiful. I wish I could live there!
We did a quick 5 day trip through Sri Lanka, moving every night and were so happy we found this gem boutique hotel we ended up booking a second night. Absolutely great location, delicious food and literally on a beautiful beach. There concept is modern and young and the staff tops off the whole package. Every person from the hotel or restaurant is incredibly friendly and helpful.
If you like peace and tranquillity then this is the hotel for you. Only a small number of rooms which means not inundated with other people. We stayed 6 nights and never more than 3 couples there at any time, some nights only us but it was end of April which was just out of season.
Hotel is an enlarged and modernised old colonial property but keeping the decor in the colonial style set in peaceful surroundings and if you want a change of scenery then Galle is only 10 minutes away by tuc-tuc.
Staff couldn't do enough for us and always on hand if you needed anything . Particularly good was Rohan who catered for our needs along with his team including Rayan who smoothed our way. The manager was a great help and a friendly, chatty guy who spared his time daily to check we were ok.
