Incredible Room
Reviewed 3 days ago

Located about 20 minutes (traffic dependent) North of Galle, we were incredibly pleasantly surprised by this hotel. Everything about it was classy, they even upgraded our room on arrival. The upgraded room was huge, an amazing bathroom with a roll in (walk in doesn't do it justice!) shower and a private jacuzzi on the upper level. The rest of the facilities were outstanding and the food was some of the best we had on our trip. I always believe the staff play as important a role as any in a hotel and here they were incredibly attentive and helpful. Would definitely return. Thank you guys!!

Outstanding!

I’d say we are fussy guests as we know what we like.

This hotel is just perfect, the staff, the pool, the plunge pool in our room, the food, the beach and the complimentary tuktuk ride to a nearby hotel to use their gym.

We couldn’t fault this hotel and would highly recommend it.

Thank you for making our stay so perfect.

Awful food not worth the pay !

Being a local Travel Agent, I expected more form this boutique property which I was promoting.Sadly the food was awful ( dinner in particular) and the beach is not safe. Had high hopes for this property as it is sold as a luxury boutique property, on the contrary quite average.The rooms are however quite nice :)

Superb boutique hotel .

Stayed for 6 nights following a busy tour and found the hotel to be of the highest standard with beautiful spacious rooms, excellent restaurant with high quality food and staff that did everything to ensure your stay was all that you could wish for.
The environment within the hotel is one tranquility providing a wonderful environment to relax. With direct access to the quiet beach it is ideal location to unwind and recharge. The size and scale of the hotel ensures that you feel you have a personalised service which adds to the ambience during your stay.

A special place and superb end to our tour of Sri Lanka
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This was our final stop of our two week tour of Sri Lanka and where we got to spend 4 very relaxing nights. Beautifully appointed yet relaxed and unpretentious, the hotel never felt 'busy'. Our ocean view, Sagara suite (Amsa) situated on the ground floor, had a wonderful view overlooking the gardens, beach and ocean (although, at times, meant that we didn't have complete privacy whilst in the plunge pool within our bathroom, as it was situated by a lovely big window). The suite was huge and well appointed. Personally, we would have preferred the bathroom to have been enclosed and air conditioned, with the plunge pool and veranda still open as they were, but that's just a personal preference due to the heat.

A real bonus of this hotel was the FOOD! And also, that you could take your breakfast, at any time of the day, wherever you wanted (in your room, restaurant, gardens etc). As HUGE fans of traditional Sri Lankan food, we opted for the egg hoppers at breakfast, which were plentiful and some of the best we'd had on our tour. As we often had breakfast later (10-11am) we didn't need to eat again until the evening (although always managed to squeeze in a cheeky chocolate chip sundae every afternoon!). Bar our first night when we chose to eat in our room, we ate mainly in the open plan restaurant, which was never busy and very relaxed. And the rest of the menu was just wonderful. Our favourite dishes were by far, the traditional rice and curry (I dream of that black chicken curry, coconut chilli sambal and aubergine curry), the chicken kebab and the beef rengdang. Out of this world. The waiters always ensured the heat of the curries was to our liking (hot, but probably not 'Sri Lankan' hot) and always accommodated our request for freshly made paratha instead of rice in most cases.

On the last two evenings, we enjoyed a stroll along the beach (to ourselves) to watch the sunset, which was just beautiful. There were a few reviews that mentioned plastic on the beach and stray dogs...we saw none of this and walked a goodly way down the beach.

An absolute perfect way to end our otherwise busy tour of Sri Lanka. Would highly recommend and would definitely return. Thank you to all the staff. Wonderful stay.
