Quiet colonial villa restored by the family after 2010 tsunami. An additional 12rooms have been put in the grounds in a pleasing 2 storey arrangement each with a balcony facing the pool.
The gardens have a peacock family and many other beautiful birds who pop down for a cool drink near sunset.Monkeys use the restaurant roof as their commute.
The upstairs dining room is spacious and friendly. Breakfast is varied and plentiful buffet. No food police checking on portions.

Dinner menu ranges from fantastic fresh fish and local rice and curry to more international usual suspects.
But if you fancied egg and chips it would be lovingly prepared for you.
The pool is small and ideal for young children. There are enough sun loungers. Towels are thick and big.

Fridge kettle tea toiletries in gorgeously simple yet lush rooms. Very hot water and good showers.

I've stayed here several times and now book as I check out for the next year.

Loyal staff have been with the owner for years which is a very good sign.

Pretty garden on site laundry.
Pryanga will inform you of trips but never push you.
5 min walk to beach.

We only stayed 1 night which was a shame, the manager met us with such warmth and interest I felt like I had stayed before and were returning as old friends. The location is great, remote enough but near to the beach (maybe 10 mins walk). We loved the pool and the staff were all really welcoming. Just wish we had booked another night!! Can recommend!!

We stayed here for 1 night and loved it. The manager was so friendly and welcoming and the hotel itself is perfect. Lovely clean, modern rooms and a nice small pool to cool off in. Breakfast was also fab with lots of choice. A 10/15 min walk to the beach and away from the main road so nice and quiet. A great place to stay!

If it had not been for this Hotel we don't think we could have stayed as long as we did. Marissa is not our cup of tea, great for those who like to party tho.
The staff were very accommodating and tried their best to accommodate us in a room with a balcony even though we hadn't requested this in our booking. They managed to achieve this on the second day after we had moved twice due to me not feeling comfortable in rooms with small windows, I know I'm a diva!!!
The Hotel is spotless, the cleanest place we had been in since arriving in Sri Lanka. Attention to detail was second to none and the staff were extremely helpful, they gave us advice on how much we should pay for a Tuk Tuk and arranged a driver for our journey to Ella at a very reasonable price.
We also have to give a special mention to Madam who is the owner, of the establishment, she bent over backwards to help us when we had difficulty booking our train to Candy, and gave us advice on where to shop when we got there, avoiding the usual tourist places by going to shopping malls. We can't thank her enough, shewas so warm and friendly and really cared that we enjoyed our stay there.

Room Tip: If you like outside space, choose a room with a balcony, great for relaxing first thing in the morning or last thing at night.

Perfect stay! Our favourite hotel in 3 weeks of travelling around Sri Lanka. Lovey leafy setting close to the beach but far enough away to be peaceful. Lovely pool, excellent restaurant with some of the best food we have had since being here, lovely clean room with four poster bed, safe, toiletries, great shower and decent wifi (although it kept dropping out on my phone). Great service too.
