Visited November 2016. Everyone was very welcoming and polite. The bungalows were lovely, with all the facilities you need and right on the beach. Buffet food was very tasty every night and also for breakfast (especially the omelettes). Can not think of a bad word to say about this place and wish I was still there. Anthony patrols the beach...

I visited this place with my girl for a day booking and the AC room with buffet lunch cost me 10,000/-. It was a unique experience as we had to park the car out and go to the hotel by a ferry. There are many things to do and see. Highly recommend this place.

Rooms, food, location and staff are veery nice! But the beach is not for you, if you are a beach lover! Water is grey to brown due to the river and closeness to Colombo i guess. It dosent look very clean.

Hotel Surroundings & Views are quite good. Rooms are neat and clean as well but the staff & services are very poor. Even the food is not that good. Its just average. One of the main concerns of the stay at this hotel was they're too strict on the dress code at their restaurant, its an open area next to...

Let me start with the bungalow itself which was excellent. The bathroom and bed were fine. Our experience then declined. To start with the poolside furniture was old and my lounger seemed to be rotting and had to use another. The evening meal was poor compared to what ywe had at other hotels and the breakfast wasn't much better. As...
