Great value gems at the Star Gems just near the hotel reception. Great service and cheaper than in the gem shops near Kandy. Mohamed gives really honest advice and is a really nice guy. We also bought gems in Kandi before we discovered Mohamed. Wish we'd gone in his shop first.

Kudos to the hotel management in having maintained the mangrove ecosystem with minimal intrusion. Rooms: Rooms are clean. We had the occasional issue with bugs/ insects creeping through the bathroom floor. Toiletries...
