This hotel is another designed by Geoffrey Bawa and is spacious and luxurious as well as sympathetically built with as little environmental disturbance as possible. It has extensive grassy areas overlooking the sea with two enormous swimming pools (and a small children's pool). Snacks and drinks can be had from Nihal's bar while sunbathing. All staff were fantastic, doing everything...

Relaxing and welcoming from the moment of check in, at which you are given a drink and a scented towel and invited to sit and enjoy the ocean view. Staff are extremely accommodating and genuinely friendly. Rooms, amenities and service are very good without being off-puttingly showy or formal. No real beach as such, but a walk along the Indian...

I visited with my family. The main restaurants had a significant problem. Even when we entered in the middle of the stipulated meal times (1330 for lunch, 0830 for breakfast), many of the dishes were awaiting replenishment. There were long waiting times. Most of the time, the guests just 'gave up' on the dish. Sensitivity to meal preferences was found...
