          A nice resort but 10 km from Galle at a fairly remote location. Nicely styled and pool with view over the ocean. We had our suspicion about the quality of the food since we both got sick. Staff is friendly and courteous.

          Great retreat from busy Unawatuna. Fantastic, friendly staff. Especially Shanthi and Sandun. Everyone did their best to make us feel welcome. A highlight was the guests inclusion in the new year celebrations. The food was also of a high quality.

          Hi, We are looking to stay at your hotel from 19 Apr - 23 Apr. I just want to find out if we take Rajadhani Express from Colombo to Galle, will you be able to arrange transportation for us from the station to your hotel, or will it be better to take a taxi? Secondly, how long will the trip from the station to your hotel take? We look forward to your reply.
