We stayed here at the end of our tour with KE travel. The hotel is lovely and the beach beautiful. However, the management is really poor. Wet and dirty towels were reused by the pool, raw chicken served at lunch and the bar is the slowest you will come across in Sri Lanka. I cannot recommend this hotel to friends.

I have stayed at this place on several Occasion to find out they have consistent service standers and food quality. Small but comfortable rooms with and without ocean view. Specially recommend the morning breakfast – a wide variety of yummy dishes and desserts to choose. A good location to have a dip in the sea too!

Very nice place. Area is not crowded. Only issue is that the area goes dark early. The room I stayed in (standard, not beach facing ones which are really nice), was nice and cozy but should have better ventilation system. They normally change towels every other day, do be sure to request them if you want it daily. Also make...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It is a place to relax, rejuvenate, and experience heritage, culture, nature and the way of life in the remote south of Sri Lanka. A resort located in an area where you can also surf and dive. From the lush green garden walk on to the golden sandy beach where you can see the natural reef breaking the blue water to a gentle wave which transforms to a tiny bubbly ripple. Swaying and whispering palms blended with the sound of waves on the quiet beach takes you through a journey of serenity. The long lonely stretch of beach offers you peace in abundance and a dip in the warm Indian Ocean is rejuvenating. Lie under a palm tree and relax on this unpolluted stretch of beach. Learn the art of stilt fishing – a mastery passed down from generation to generation and enjoy the only village of stilt fishing in the world. ... more   less
