A great Jetwing Hotel with friendly and efficient staff. Good food. Close to Galle - worth a day wandering around the fort. Watching the sunset from the pool is a great memory. Unfortunately our tour meant we stayed for only one night - its worth more than that!

Just returned from a fabulous two weeks in Sri Lanka and this was by far the best of the hotels we used. The location really is wonderful - right on the beach with sea views from bedrooms, dining room,terrace and both pools. And those views really do fall into the 'tropical paradise' category! The buffet breakfast was outstanding, providing a...

Just spent 4 nights here at the beginning of a Sri Lankan holiday. We really enjoyed this hotel. Spacious, spotless rooms with sea views and the sound of the Indian ocean.

Great location but a disappointing Butlins type hotel catering to mass travellers. Huge room overlooking the sea but would much rather have tried for an hotel in town to be able to explore a little more. Disappointing.

Kudos to architect Geoffrey Bawa, he is a master. The hotel is beautifully planned, modern functional style with antique furniture. Stunning views form terraces, great comfortable rooms in modern Colonial style. Great bath room. Friendly service, fantastic breakfast and lovely gift shop.
