A lovely stay for 3 nights, huge bedrooms, lovely views and an enormous variety of food for breakfast. Supper was a la carte, no buffet option, but everything was delicious. The pools were clean, staff friendly and we had a wonderful stay, thank you.

We were not staying at the hotel, but we stopped by to see the work of Geoffrey Bawa the well known architect who had designed the Hotel. The hotel staff was graceful to permit us to look around. (That we had architect among us and the fact that we had made reservations to visit Bawa’s residence in Colombo also helped)....

Beach and pools superb. Food is fine but quite expensive - certainly by Sri Lanka standards. If you can get a good value full board deal then take it. Galle not far...

We were staying in a sister hotel and visited the spa here. The staff were very professional and the therapists excellent. We decided to stay for lunch which was well presented and tasted good. The service was also professional and friendly. Worth a visit.

Buffer was magnificent especially the fish mahi mahi with lemon sauce. Also set...

I stayed a night with my wife. Staff at the lower reception were not very welcoming. But staff at restaurant and pool bar were very nice, specially young waiters in restaurant. Little space for parking, I parked my car within premises under a tree with fruits which was the only space available. When I reached Galle fort only I realised...
