When we booked Aditya the web site was still not up and running and we went on a recommendation. The hotel is now being featured on some Sri Lanka hotel websites after opening in Jan 2006.
After spending a week there I am sure it will be one of the most sought after hotels in Sri Lanka before long. Every room has its own plunge pool / Jacuzzi, the most enormous bathrooms with an outdoor shower that could honestly fit 10 people, full TV / DVD /Sound system and the most massive rooms I have ever seen.
We stayed in a sea view suite the Jacuzzi on the huge balcony looking out over the Indian Ocean â€“perfect at sunset.However, the garden rooms are just as amazing, but without a few.However, to make up for that the ceilings are painted with stars and comets which you can only see at night the UV lights-really magical and a nice touch.
It really is as good as the website pictures. very funky in its design, almost a little bit Moroccan but not pretentious or contrived at all. The food was amazing and they have this policy that the guests dicate their own meal times so whenever you want to eat the chef is waiting-this was great for us as we like to lie in on holiday and no breakfast times we could roll up at midday and get a full breakfast.
The hotel is right on a private beach but most guests lounged round the pool. There are only 12 suites so it is nice and quit and services are very personal.
They really go the extra mile-I needed some laundry done on the day and we were leaving at 3.There was no time to send it to the normal laundry so the porter offered to hand wash it for me and returned it in 2 hours all pressed and ready.
If you want to chill out in the luxury in Sri Lanka but also be near Galle and Hikkaduwa for days out this is the place.
