This hotel offers a simple and clean room for traveller. You can enjoy the nice scenario of lagoon in front of the hotel. I enjoy jogging around the lagoon. The hotel restaurant also offers a nice local food.

Large, unattractive buildings spoil very attractive location. The location is perfect for a well designed hotel. Unfortunately the location has been ruined by this monster. Just for a start a buildings in this type of location should not exceed the height of adjoining trees. Views from the building are wonderful. Views of the hotel from the adjoining lagoons are dreadful....

This is one of the best places (probably the best) you can stay in Batticaloa for holidays. The hotel is situated in a perfect place where it is almost surrounded by the lagoon.

The room is quite big and quiet. Nice air conditioning, big bathroom and nice bed. it has a balcony with a gorgeous view of the lagoon and sea. Sunrise is beautiful from here. Food is bit costly, not much tasty and oily. Will take too long to be served. As it has reasonable access to the tourist point good place...

I did not stay in this hotel but visited the restaurant to try local crabs. It was served after 30 minutes but worth to wait. It was delicious. Very simple, tasty and fresh. The price is ok and service is good. Do not expect luxury background just enjoy the fresh lagoon crabs !

A bit of a splurge for the budget traveller, but if you want a dependable place to stay im Batti, I think this is it. Lovely location next to the lake. Hotel standard cleanliness and service. Great views from the rooms. Recommended.
