Recent guest reviews

Lcation is pretty amazing not because of anything..It because of anyone comes to airport after a few hours in flight .Then a place looks like this.Really so good to have this and again and again i will be there if i went overseas .Because going to this hotel is pretty good .Comfortable rooms with friendly staff have played such a major role to become an outstanding hotel in srilanka

My wife and I stayed here for two nights prior to a very early morning flight. We wanted somewhere to really relax after touring southern India and Sri Lanka for six weeks and prepare ourselves for the long journey home to Canada. We could not have chosen better. From the time of registration to check out we were treated superbly. We were greeted and shown to our room by Samadhi one of the guest relations officers. Her welcome and the information provided set up our stay. It certainly didn't hurt that we were upgraded to a superior room. The hotel is located in a coconut plantation so that a guest is unaware that the surrounding area is quite built up. The staff was friendly, the room very clean and comfortable and the food most enjoyable. Check out was seamless and the short drive to the airport was in one of the on site taxis.

dharmender is good chef whenever we have ask any special dish he is always wiling to do over all the staff in dining are is very warm and will to do any modification in food break fast spread is very good only in room soap quality need to improve

The music for the party was too loud and it continued till nearly midnight. No apology was given from the hotel. Food was good and reasonable price. Room was good also and clean. Free Wifi but it was a bit slow.

The hotel has one of the best services I had ever experienced, clean, very organized and the restaurant is a plus; food is just wonderful there. The team is extremely kind and professional; my congratulations to Chef Nishanta and Mr Gehan on fantastic quality they provide at their restaurant.

I stayed at this amazing hotel only for 2 nights, but it was incredible ! Staff are very nice, location is good, there is no traffic , pool is amazing and food is awesome, especially the buffets . Breakfast is pretty rich in choices and the gym is also nice. They have a spa center, so if you want a massage I strongly recommend to take the one in the hotel, not outside. A bit poor in toiletry kits, but by request they provide anything! I used UBER to go outside , you can pay by cash. Don't use tuc-tuc, maybe only once to get the tuc-tuc experience in Colombo (they are pretty expensive, double than UBER). So book this hotel, you will find yourself in a huge park full of vegetation! Enjoy the trip

We drove from 2.5 hours Galle to stay here as a pre-departure hotel. Our flight to Cochin required we check in at about 03.30 due to the airport renovations,so we decided to stay here for the night to make our departure simpler. The hotel location was perfect for our needs. It is located in large grounds and has all necessary facilities, ie pool bars restaurants (buffet). It is any easy walk to the shops outside the hotel where there is a supermarket for food and alcohol if needed. The rooms were a little dated, but hey; this stay for us was all about a convenient location close to the airport and it scored well on this basis.

Very good staff, good food, Very Clean. Very Quiet. The place to relax with short drive from Colombo rather than driving long hours. Though there is no beach if you really need to go to the beach its just 10mnts drive.

The elevator is so noisy that I thought a construction was going on right on top of my bedroom. In the evening I called reception asking when the construction was going to be ended and is when they said there wasn't any and that the noise is from the elevators. Room change was required as I wasn't able to sleep with that level of uncomfortable noise. Most of the staff are super friendly.

The hotel is great. The rooms are very spacious. The panoramic view into the surrounding orchards is very pleasant. The Chef. Bharathi delighted us with his Indian Cuisine which all our European team members enjoyed thoroughly. He also explained the wonderful culture and heritage of the land. I am eagerly looking forward for my next holiday there.
