We stayed in the hotel for 8 nights with our 3 kids. Our plan was to make a real relaxing week and for this it was the best chooise for sure.

One of the best hotels in Galle. The design and architecture is stunning as always as it is a Geofrey Bawa designed hotel. Rooms and food are very tasteful. Good for a relaxing holiday with your better half or friends and family.

Had a lovely stay, view was phenomenal. Chef was good to cook me something off the menu rather than the set meal as I'm fussy! Lovely room, and staff were very helpful. Artwork is to die for aswell, real nice quirk! Definitely come back for more 😄

Fantastic location, spacious rooms, terrific bathroom. Located right on the ocean amongst the rocks, this hotel offers more than a great view. The hotel appears to be family oriented with large pools and activities for the children. The view from the restaurant is lovely and the selection was very vast and staff were very good
