This hotel has one of the best views ever. We were in a room that lead to the pool and the beach a little ahead of it.. it's a dream! Perfect for our marriage anniversary holiday. To add to our lovely experience, was the staff. Kumudu was at our service always with a smile. He arranged a delicious chocolate cake for our anniversary and ensured our stay was very comfortable. We will definitely recommend this hotel to our friends...for the excellent hospitality and the location. Thankyou Kumudu...you made our stay really pleasant

I loved this one so much the staff were professional, accommodating and warm. The food was excellent - I use to ate outside overlooking the ocean on both nights.My rooms was clean and spacious with very good air-conditioning No doubt the rooms are great with sea views, a great pool etc.Unfortunately I had on access due to covid but more than that staff attitude I would highly recommend Superb management ever seen. thank you so much once again to ekho surf team and I would like to especially thank G.S.M Kanchana for his kind hospitality services.
