We walked into this hotel after being deceived by the neighboring hotel, which rated on Tripadvisor as the best hotel in Trincomalee. This was a heaven on earth for us, who have been starving and ill-treated at the previous hotel. Rooms are small, but very comfortable and the lovely view of the ocean is available. We loved watching the sunrise... More

A beautiful hotel on the East coast of Sri Lanka. The staff were amazing! So friendly and helpful - nothing was too difficult for them to handle. One of the few hotels in Sri Lanka with parking for the disabled. Wheelchair assistance was made available on check in. The room (we were in a chalet right by the beach) was... More

After a quick check in we were taken to our room/chalet that was very close to the beach. Very nicely appointed room, clean and comfortable. Since it was almost off season, the usual buffet... More
