“Great service very relaxing holiday and staff were very kind and helpful especially. Catering: Nothing was ever to much to ask from the catering team especially Nishan and Anton who both went above and beyond in all ways. The food was also amazing and a lot of it as well and plenary of choice Spa: The spa was heavenly it was calming, relaxing and enjoyable. Housekeeping: The rooms were immaculate from the day we arrived till the day we left. The men called chamara, dude and Bimali with his team made sculptures out of towels and laid flowers on the bed and greeted you on your way to breakfast and whenever you see them. I have some photos of the bed decorated down bellow. Pool: The pool was very quiet and you could hear a pin drop. The pool was an amazing temperature and went on for ever the pool staff came around with water and apples and face cloths to cool you and help your hunger. There was also burgers and wraps etc that you could pay for. A very nice man called Sashinsa was amazing he was working on the pool and upper deck. We have loved our stay here all thanks to the hotel.”

“We spent a week over Christmas at the hotel and had a wonderful time. We couldn't find fault with anything. The staff were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Food was excellent, the Christmas Eve buffet offered pretty much everything you could possibly think of! Our room was great with the most comfortable bed. We were on the lagoon side so further from reception and the pool area but that meant it was quiet and peaceful. Overall a great experience so many thanks to Giles and his team.”
