Thank you very much Ms. Sophia for mentioning our resort as an “Amazing” one. Yes, most of our guests are highly taken up by the beautiful and relatively calm stretch of beach. We are glad that you enjoyed the view so much, sitting at the restaurant, bar or any other area. Thank you too for your comments of our staff...

No doubt this is an amazingly situated hotel, being rare that it is south of the main road and on the beach itself, many locally are a walk across the road from the beach. We stayed. In April 2016 as a tour group, hotel had great views, good swimming pools but a few minor issues. First - food was average,...

Hello dear guest (jackw53), Thank you very much for profuse recommendation of our hotel. Glad you like our stretch of beach so much and the beauty of it is, even during off season and rough seas, the beach at INSIGHT Resort is relatively calm thanks to the reef that stretches across approximately 60 mtrs away, making sea bathing a reality....

Thank you very much for your lovely comments and calling Insight a great hotel. Once again your recommendation of the staff and good quality food would disqualify just only two slightly negative comments before about the staff and food.

On the beach but strong waves and undertow. Nice pool. Very average food. Rooms ok but drilling etc when we stayed. Pool attendant indifferent. Beware some whale watching outfits Eg Danoushka Crowded boats, too close and not ethically aware. We saw blue whale so happy on that score.

Thank you for your comments and appreciate it. Surprised to note about strong waves and undertow as there is a well spread reef write across the sea front and lots comment about being relatively quite safe for sea bathing. Regret not having food to your liking. However a couple of previous comments have well recommended our food. Sorry if that’s...

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
