Kudos to architect Geoffrey Bawa, he is a master. The hotel is beautifully planned, modern functional style with antique furniture. Stunning views form terraces, great comfortable rooms in modern Colonial style. Great bath room. Friendly service, fantastic breakfast and lovely gift shop. This place is made for walking on the beach and enjoying life!

I stayed here recently in a deluxe room on the third floor in the Spa Wing. It was simply fabulous and the room was generous, practical, clean and comfortable.
