Lovely hotel and great location to the sea. Book a sea view room. Excellent breakfast which is cooked to order. Our room didn’t have a tv but you can ask at reception to put one in. To be honest the area itself is so great you don’t spend much time in the room. Very close to Galle and Unawatuna beach.

The design of the property is beautiful - great attention to detail. It is quirky yet elegant. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. They allowed us to shower in a different room after we checked out of our room as we wanted to stay by the pool longer. However the twin beds were extremely uncomfortable. It felt as if there was no mattress and we were sleeping directly on wooden planks. For such a lovely hotel it was quite surprising that this was the case.
