Few Kms away from the city. Located in a top of a hill. Panaromic view is fascinating. Interior designed according to kandyan style. Waiters are also dressed to a similar theme. Road to the hotel is narrow and windy. So drive carefully. Food and staff is very good. A very nice place.

Amazing people, beautiful place - great amenities. Our bedding wasn't smelling too nice, so they were kind enough to offer an upgrade for the next night which unfortunately we were not able to avail. The best dinner buffet I have seen in a long time - delicious - presentable - huge variety and amazing service!
