A relaxing location to stay with your family. The staff of the hotel is very helpful and friendly and try their best to make your stay memorable. Food is awesome. You must try an early morning walk on the beach!. I would definitely recommend this place for people who look for a relaxing vacation.

A good place to stay specially if you are staying with the family. A spacious pool and good environment, directly facing to public beach strip in Pasikudah. Rooms are spacious enough but their AC is a hit and miss. Food is average with minimum variety, they could have at least improved in the department in sea food being a beach...

We spent 2 nights there. They have river view rooms and sea view rooms. You need to be specific about which one you want. Food was ok and service not bad. They have private beach for the hotel and loved it. If you are going with young kids wouldn't recommend the river view rooms

Situated about 28km North of Batticaloa town, in the Batticaloa District, of the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka, Passikudah is an approximate 5 hour journey from the Capital, Colombo. The Bay of Passikudah is a crescent-moon shaped inlet of shallow water. The bay is flat and sandy; and provides a very soothing effect on the feet. Its panoramic views and clear, cool waters, ideal for swimming has made it a much adored destination by holiday makers. The amazing tranquility of the beach lends itself beautifully for moments of blissful solitude, with gentle waters lapping at your feet. For more adventurous vacationers, the 4km-long wide and sunny beach provides a great location for bathing, windsurfing and water skiing. Nature lovers will be pleased to find that the bay comprises of a shallow fringing coral reef towards the outer bay with scattered coral communities within.
