This place has more than surpassed my expectations on many fronts! It was a short 15 minute drive from Jetwing Blue where we spent our first night after arriving in the early hours.
The rooms - we had a Bawa room and I loved it; very spacious and well decorated with natural materials. The bathroom which is partly open-air is just a delight. With both a bathtub and shower, you are spoilt for choice!
The food at the Blue Lagoon restaurant was incredible. The "Go Sri Lanka" set menus are well thought of and creatively put together. I highly recommend it. It consists of a number of small dishes all cooked with fresh ingredients! The restaurant iteslf overlooks the lagoon and is a very relaxing place particularly over lunch. The restaurant staff knew our room number from the beginning and always made us feel welcome! Overall, all members of staff we came across were very warm and helpful.
There is a large pool area with plenty of loungers as well as a bar. Great place to relax. Next to the restaurant is also a well equipped gym for those wanting to exercise.
I felt this was more than just a place to spend a night following your arrival in Sri Lanka. I am pleased we spent three nights here and would happily return for more.
Finally, I applaud the hotel's (and the wider Jetwing group's) green credentials ranging from water conservation to tree planting for a sustainable future! Keep up the good work!
