Fancy "6 star" joint half an hour south of Galle. Given the expense it wasn't really up to scratch, note that: the phones weren’t working when we checked in, the room AC hadn’t been turned on, the gym AC was also off when we were shown it, there was a child in the "child-free" moon-pool and you could fill the bath with only the hot tap and still jump straight in without it being too hot. The top rooms are advertised as 2 story 2 bedroom apartments, but there are really 2 separate villas with separate external entries (you cant go from the downstairs to the upstairs private pool unless you go outside and enter a separate stairwell). On the good side, you can jump into your private pool from the upstairs bedroom through the window in your bedroom! The shower is also a steam room and the pool has perfect temperature.
There is a great view of the cape and a lovely surf break that continues for what looks like about a km (probably from an outer reef which then tumbles slowly into the beach).
