A contemporary resort in tropical paradise

Set among coconut groves on the golden sand of Kalutara, this unique resort enjoys a spectacular setting; where the Kalu Ganga River meets the Indian Ocean. It is contemporary in style, mixing neutral tones and bold colours, and the atmosphere has a laidback feel; with a sparkling pool and access straight to a beach. Taste exciting cuisine in a variety of international and locally-inspired dishes, and keep active with activities on land and on the water.

Peaceful and relaxng

Colombo, Sri Lanka

Last December we stayed at this hotel for a night. Since we wanted a place close to Colombo, this suited us. The hotel is located between the sea and the lagoon and is very close to the estuary. The setting of the buildings are also good with lots of trees and grass which helps you to relax more easily. Room are spacious and well equipped. The minibar of soft drinks were complimentary. The staff is friendly and helpful. One might wonder why have I rated it "Averge". Its purely based on the food, which was a bit disappointing. One of my family members who had stayed there before said the food was excellent. But for us it was not so. Not that the food was bad, just it was nothing special, especially the lunch. Here to be fair, I must mention that we went there on a week day and there was not much of a crowd, especially for lunch. Will I go there again? Well like I said everything else being very good, sure I am willing to go there again, hoping to taste the food my family member enjoyed in the previous stay, in which case I will gladly change the rating to Very Good!

Good Property. Bad Location

Delhi

The property is good, rooms are clean, food is good and staff helpful. Though we hated the location. At first you feel great being so close to the beach, that feeling goes away the moment you step on the beach. The beach is dirty and dangerous. Add to that the property is far away from everything. So we spent our days on the pool overlooking the beach. Such a shame. Head to their Bentota property.
