What can I say. The water villa was gorgeous, so many showers to choose from. Great view of the water from the bedroom and you can just wake up and jump in Crystal clear water. You get a couple of bicycles to go around the resort and your spot to go and relax. Infinity pool with bar is of course available. Get yourself in the evening to the bar and enjoy the sunset. After order a buggy to your choice of restaurant. The buffet BBQ was excellent. The other two restaurants are excellent, serving very good food. Spent some time scuba diving, and you will be very well catered. A great place to go and relax and forget about the world.

I have not enough words to express how wonderful this place is. The staff is amazing and the food really good. The rooms are so beautiful and the view is spectacular. The reef right outside the rooms is beautiful and full of fish

Out of this world beauty. Love the bikes that are at each villa for you to use 24 hours per day. Water is outstanding. Pool is wonderful and relaxing. Service was great everywhere. Very friendly staff. Prices are amazingly low considering the luxury facilities at this property. Stunning spa that is like a small village on the waterfront. They have villas built out over the water or ones built on land at edge of ocean. Is only five min boat ride from Gan airport if you can fly direct to there (flights go direct from Colombo making it very easy). Give this resort a try. You will love it. Is like a jewel that no one has discovered.
