We stayed for two nights at this hotel and really had a fantastic time. The suite is beautiful with access to the garden from the patio. The hotel has two pools, a lap pool, and a smaller family pool. We spend the whole day next to the family pool and had the pool all to ourselves. The beach is a 3-minute walk from the room across a railway track, the sea was really rough so we did not swim in the sea.

The food is really good and they had a lovely little gift shop. Staff was friendly and really good with kids. Would like to go back again. Thank you for the good service.

Room Tip: Suite #2 has garden access and beautifully situated within the resort.

This hotel exceeded expectations! Extremely stylish decor, attentive staff and immaculate room. The breakfast included was fantastic and very generous. Much more special and personal experience than larger commercial resorts in the area. Highly recommend!

My daughter and I had a wonderful four days here last month - delicious food, fabulous friendly staff, gorgeous decor. We loved it! Not long enough. We also thought the train going through the bottom of the garden was a unique and very Sri Lankan moment several times a day.

We just loved this hotel for our last 2 nights in Sri Lanka. Wonderful interior design, original artwork and professional friendly staff. We had a room which opened onto the garden which was perfect for relaxing. The pool attendant kindly set up sun lounges for us under a palm tree near our room and we then had the choice of 2 pools to take a cooling dip. The breakfast and coffee were the best we had in Sri Lanka and the pizzas were great.

Also discovered the shop on our last day. Great for stylish, well priced gifts. Again, best shop in SL.

Definitely recommend this hotel.

Lovely unique superbly designed property. Pros - Lovely location at a walking distance to a super clean and quiet beach. Friendly staff. Well designed rooms. Loved the layout of the property - rustic, green and quiet! There is a train track running on the border of the property. I personally enjoyed watching a train chugging by every now and then :)
Minor Cons - may not be a con for many but (a) the WiFi was quite bad (you don't really want WiFi in such a lovely property though!): (b) Breakfast was basic and limited - again may not be a con for many.
We were a group of four and booked one superior room and one executive suite (no views). Would recommend the superior room which had a lovely balcony overlooking the gardens. We stayed four nights and would not hesitate to go back again!
