We (Couple with toddler) stayed here for 4 nights in May and were taken aback by the amazing service by all the staff in particular Samera. The property is an ex colonial mansion and has the traditional courtyard in the middle which is lovely to sit in if the sun isn't too strong. The hotel is located very central but...

This is a small, exclusive hotel. It was so peaceful (except for the giant monkey on the roof) with a nice pool and gardens.Waiter service at dinner made a welcome change from the larger hotels on the tour. A lovely traditional room, just outside the town so maybe a taxi from the centre if you don't have a car. Definitely...

Possibly not ideal with young kids, but very comfortable, relaxing stay in peaceful surroundings. A decent sized pool and very comfortable sizeable rooms with big bathrooms. The breakfast was a la carte and absolutely delicious with a western and local option.

I'm writing this as I wrap up my short tour of Sri Lanka. Compared to the ones I stayed in Bentota and Colombo, this villa to me has the most authentic feel locally. The staff is very hospitable and there is always someone to greet you when you return after a day out. The rooms are huge especially the bathroom....

Loved the property, small and elegant with a nice pool. A short walk to the beach. Property has peacocks that fly in sometimes over breakfast and pet rabbits to keep little children occupied. DVD library for entertainment. Breakfast was nice but dinner lacked bite/spice/taste

First impressions driving up to the hotel entrance is like you're on a movie set, not kidding it's a stunning building!
