We can highly recommend this hotel. The setting, rooms, pool,food & above all the attentiveness of the staff was excellent. Unfortunately I didn't have time to use the spa facilities. Many thanks for the cooking demonstration on our 2nd night & providing coconut sambal at breakfast prior to our departure. We would love to return some day.

Our Room was in a quiet area away from the lobby, ground floor, large with a sitting area and porch looking over the tropical fauna which the hotel is built around.

We stayed with our family and the driver while touring the island. The food was fantastic. We tasted the real authentic food. Lot's of varieties to choose from. Best place to wind down after you visit the city. We stayed in so many places throughout the island before we came here. We loved the shower!!!. It was like a waterfall!!!.

We had a delightful stay with great staff and just a wonderful location. The food and service were both great, room was clean and spacious and the public areas were spotless. For those liking bird life the kingfisher and hornbills were a special treat.

Loved the location and food. Staff were very friendly and catered to everyone's special requests and needs. The outdoor pool was small. We did not use it. There was a weeding reception and it was a bit noisy. Very nice view and relaxing place.

The hotel is very beautiful with a lovely garden. We enjoyed the free safari organised by the hotel to minneriya national park. We had a relaxing time both in the swimming pool and the bathtub in the room. The roof top dinner was lovely. We will definitely come again another time.

“We got 2 rooms and the back door opens to shared Balcony that faces the lake. Ask for extra supplies (tea, sugar) and they brought it without any fuss. Outside there were cockroach that scared me. Inside was clean. TV did not work, but the room boy came and made it to work. ”
