Hospitality of employees was exceptional. I'd like to specifically say thank you to Mahesh the Bell man! He was really helpful and proactive. It was certainly a memorable visit! The room was luxurious, comfy bed and spectacular view. They provide water, tea and coffee any time for free.

We stayed at this hotel during Friday 25th March 2016 to Sunday 27th March 2016. Upon arrival around 5pm on the Friday, we were told that our room was not ready as the people who stayed the night before had not emptied the room of their belongings. After a long day if sight-seeing, we were annoyed we had to wait...

Had a fantastic time at this hotel on a family trip, Nishantha who looked after our room 1705 kept surprising us with towel art monkeys and elephants, and the staff down at the beach bar, especially Hans ensured we were well watered, the staff in general could not do enough - thanks again
