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.

Very relaxing weekend !

Colombo, Sri Lanka

We checked in on the 14th for one day overnight stay at the hotel. We reached the location around 2.15, however room was made available to us only around 2.45. These days with the new year festival I guess there was less staff and the hotel was booked fully, which we completely understand. The staff at the reception was very warm and courteous. We booked a sea view superior room. Comparing to other hotels we have stayed,this was slightly smaller. The room nevertheless was perfectly comfortable. The balcony opens to the sea, however it’s difficult to get a view of it as the beach area stretches to the far ends. The sea however was quite rough. I believe since the country has been experiencing rain over the last few days. We didn’t take a dip as a result. I cannot therefore comment on the safety of the sea. I guess it’s fine on other days. The pool was lovely, water was warm during late evening. It was very comfortable. We enjoyed it. With regard to food, dinner was nothing much. Very limited options. We expected more. However the breakfast and lunch was amazing! Super spread and a lot of variety. We being foodies we enjoyed so much. Again I think the hotel had lack of staff due to the holidays. It was very difficult to get the service of staff in the restaurant. We had to pile up the plates on a side coz there was no one to clear them. But we completely understand, and it didn’t stop us from enjoying the food. Furthermore, they took time to refill the buffet, some dishes were completely empty. Finally, we did have a good time and enjoyed our stay. These small matters were not issues for us. I’m sure everything will be alright when the staff are back from vacation. Btw, the restaurant staff seemed a little stressed, may be they were covering for others as well! We would try the hotel again sometime! Until then good luck to the hotel management and staff !!
