This hotel is next to the beach. Beautiful interior designing catches everyone's eyes. Big hotel with huge buffet. You have different varieties of food. International, Indian and Sri Lankan foods are very famous. Staff is very friendly and the service is really good.

We Have Just returned after a 2 week holiday in this resort; this is our 3rd time in Sri Lanka and think we are relatively well-travelled (travelling short and long haul about 6 times a year). The hotel itself is a little old and could do with some updating (A little rough around the edges) although cleaned to a very...

We visited this hotel for a night stay straight from Citrus Hotel Waskaduwa. My husband being in the architect field was very keen to visit this hotel due to its great architecture designed by the most renowned architect Sir Geoffrey Bawa. The moment we entered, I was not much impressed as I didnt see any beauty when compared to other...

Stayed at one of the club suites over Sinhala and Tamil New year. The room itself was quite nice and spacious. The dinner buffet on the 13th night was pretty awful, the choice of food was poor, nothing out of the ordinary. Pretty average!. Breakfast the following morning was also pretty poor. Lunch seemed better..... I wonder if it was...

Dear Guest, I just wanted to reply to your comments on the buffet.Your comment is not the opinion of majority as we average more than 800 guests for the week-end for buffet. Yours is the first of its kind.The owners were staying in the hotel for the entire week end and their presence did not make our buffet different. Regardless,...

Spent 11 nights here for a cricket tour. Accommodation was good and pool area also. We were on half board. Breakfast and dinner (buffet) were to good standard. Staff very helpful. Club Suites very spacious and to high standard.

We stayed in a 'club suite' - the hotel staff recommended to go for it because there were 2 adults + 1 toddler + 1 infant. It turned out to be a good choice. The suite was spacious. The bathroom was great, comes with a jacuzzi. All in all accommodation was great! The food (buffet) choice was good (not great!)....
