    Thoroughly recommended. A brilliant place to spend a few days at the end of a trip around SL. Staff are charming, the pools are huge, the beach is glorious, the food is superb, but for us the highlight was the Geoffrey Bawa design. Magical.

    Yes, there are towels to use at the pool. None of the hotels will offer them to use on the beach.
