Unfortunately this was the worst place we stopped in during our 16 day tour of Sri Lanka. I booked this almost 9 months ago when the original owners were still in situ - only to receive an email three months before our trip saying the place had been taken over. The service was terrible - during dinner I had to...

Room was great, clean and modern. Reception staff were terrible not at all helpful, couldn't help us with laundry or changing money or even changing larger Sri Lankan notes to smaller ones. Breakfast staff were good though! Quick and attentive. Also would be good if they offered a shuttle to waligama as there is no where around to eat so...

Stay at w15 escape with my family and our friends. Absolutely loved the vibe and the chilled out feel. As an architect myself I was really impressed with how they had used the natural landscape and merged it with a modern chic build, all fitted out in white. The pool is awesome and invites you straight in. Sun downer -...

Our favourite spot to relax in the South! This thoughtfully designed boutique hotel with great views of the Indian Ocean and luxurious island hospitality, is a true escape. The property is beautiful!

A wonderful oasis retreat. Staff were so incredibly friendly and went above and beyond. Rooms were spacious and airy and the semi outdoor shower facilities were unique and luxurious. We shall definitely return as the hotel location is perfect for exploring the nearby towns of southern Sri Lanka.
