Watsala and Phil are the perfect hosts. Felt pampered. Great location for quick access to multiple beaches. Beautiful hotel home. Best food we’ve had in Sri Lanka and we live here!

We booked a Deluxe Double room for 5 nights but did not get the room we booked. We were given a family room and it was anything but Deluxe. The room was very basic (the sort of room we used to stay in when backpacking 20 years ago) and quite tired and scruffy looking (mouldy bathroom, stained and unhygienic looking seating area on the balcony). We were hugely disappointed and wish we'd booked somewhere else as it spoiled our trip. On a positive note, the pool area and gardens were beautiful and immaculately maintained.
