Nice stay at small boutique hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

It was a very nice stay for 2 nights and me and my husband enjoyed also a lovely wine diner that was held one of the evenings with wines from Australia & New Zealand. Direct beach access, however public beach.

Amazing place to spend a holiday
Reviewed 1 week ago

We spent one night with a Tuna boat dinner at the hotel for our Anniversary. The room was very clean and the service was good.

The beach nearby looked very safe because that was like a small bay.

The pool looked nice, but didn't like the location that much. It's too near to the main entrance I'd say.

Catastrophic Staff & Boring place
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Untrained and un-cooperative staff
Poor english knowledge of the whole staff
Very small pool
uncleaned room (sand everywhere, bathroom, ...)
loud AC
Plugs, lights, lift,... etc not working properly (bugs all time)
Cheap amenities in room and facilities

Nevertheless a wounderful beach view and a good restaurant (cook).
I'd therefore never recommend to stay there more than 1 night. The best would be even to come one evening for a sunset dinner and then leave the place!

There is otherwise nothing to do there: in the middle of nowhere, such a boring place... No facilities, no (watersport) activity. I stayed there 5 days with friends ; we found the time very long...

-> This hotel offers only a nice view with cheap amenities and should be therefore underrated... It's a pity!

Nice place, but no cooperative management
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We have done a reservation one week before our arrival. Unfortunately we made a mistake and booked 5 instead of 2 nights. After we got the confirmation and recognized the wrong dates, we tried to change our reservation - one week in advance!
But the hotel management was not prepared to move on that point at all. No compramise was possible.
Even booking.com, where the reservation was made, tried to help us and contacted the management, but a discussion was useless.
I mean it was just a reservation and not a booking and there would have been a lot of ways to negotiate with us!!
So we stayed at the hotel. It was nice, but boring. Nothing around this area.

Wonderful stay in a great location

We stayed for four nights in this amazing resort: modern, spacious, very clean rooms, all of them having a great view to the sea, the beach directly in front of the hotel, staff was great, very helpful, trying to fulfill every wish of the guests, wonderful restaurant serving both srilankian and western kitchen. All in all: the perfect stay ar the end of a perfect holiday!
