Guests can relax around the unique swimming pool, or walk 15 minutes to an expansive sandy beach. There is also a separate building for massage, located in...

We had a very enjoyable 3 nights at this very comfortable and pretty place. I had broken my ankle a few days before; Karen and Rohan couldn't have been more helpful and the staff were wonderful - they rushed to help me whenever I wanted to move! We thoroughly enjoyed it. And a special mention for our driver, Sisi, who...

The rooms are big and tastefully decorated, beds super comfortable and bathroom huge. Food is excellent -...

We spent our last few nights in Sri Lanka here. It is a very clean, quiet, beautiful and lovely hotel. The food is amazing - don't miss the giant prawns! So glad I took their advice. Any request we had was quickly accommodated. Tea on the balcony each morning. Plenty of soft, fluffy towels - always a difficult thing to...

We loved staying here. The room and bathroom were absolutely enormous ( more like a small apartment really) and very tastefully decorated, the owners have a real eye for Interior design. The air con was very quiet, the beds super comfortable and the showers powerful. Each room has a large balcony or terrace with amazing views of the gardens and...
