Very friendly staff that made everything possible to have a memorable last night in sri lanka. Very close to the airport (only 5klm) but in the premises it is very tranquil and offers all the amenities of a 5-star hotel.

There is a small one located about 1.5 km away. Turn right outside the main hotel driveway and keep walking/driving. It is ok to dine there but I preferred to eat in the hotel restaurant which I thought was very good.
