Aditya Resort - Galle - Building
1
9.5 Excellent (218 reviews)
Overview Reviews
When you stay at Aditya Boutique Hotel in Hikkaduwa, you'll be on the beach, within a 10-minute drive of Hikkaduwa Beach and Hikkaduwa Coral Reef. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, dry cleaning/laundry services, and a library. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was amazing, the service at reception was good, they were always there to help. After we made a mistake with the booking (a day too early) they offered us an upgrade and a free dinner which they didn't have to! Our standard room was enormous, including a private plunge pool, fish pond and double sinks in the bathroom.
Cons: There's not much to do in Hikkaduwa, but Galle is great and only a short tuk tuk ride away. The sea was really rough when we were there (July) so we were advised not to go swimming.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Facilities and staff exceptional. Photos do not do it justice.
Cons: Nothing
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautifully designed, well decorated, huge room with a gorgeous beach facing jacuzzi. Excellent staff, probably the most attentive staff we’d encountered across our stay in Sri Lanka. Lovely private beach. Just an excellent experience overall!
Cons: The mandatory New Years gala dinner, while well conducted, felt overpriced. Ideally, the gala dinner should be optional - not all guests are in the mood to have a 5-course meal for New Years.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. The rooms, cleanliness, staff readiness to assist, the design, even the smell of the halls and rooms.
Cons: Nothing from the Hotel. The way from CMB airport to the hotel is longer than what google maps will advise. Google maps estimates the trip to be 2.5 hrs. The trip takes from 3.5 to 4 hours. Plan accordingly.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Our room and bathroom was enormous and we had a jacuzzi to ourselves on a floor above us. The main hotel area was very large and airy and had a good view across the garden to the beach. The staff were extremely attentive and charming. The beach was long in both directions and had very few people on it - good for a long walk in the morning or evening.
Cons: Because it was very spacious and modern it was not as intimate as the word 'boutique' implied and the dining area was a large open area facing the garden and beach - there was no separate, more intimate dining area. The sea was rough and there was a strong under-tow - it was not a place to swim in the sea - but one could paddle or 'play' in the water close to the beach.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel was absolutely beautiful. The staff were so attentive and kind. We could not have enjoyed our stay more.
Cons: Everything was wonderful. The only improvement that could be made is ensuring drivers know to offer toilet/coffee stops en route from airport.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Lovely hotel, perfect for our last night before long flight home!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The room, the view was really good... the staff was just amazing.. helped set a table in the garden for dinner in a very short notice.. also, the any time breakfast policy was such a great thing... thank you for that..
Cons: We wanted to try the pillow collection and we called and asked for 2 pillows, but never got it. But we didnt wanna call the 2nd time. So it was ok.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing service. So clean. Nice people. Quick service , nice comfortable setup. Good food. For relaxing I rate it 10-10. Good taste. Nice decoration, rooms are amazing
Cons: -m
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Standard of room and food incredibly high. Staff were excellent and while not in a city/town centre, it’s very easy to get to any of the surrounding towns in a matter of minutes. The hotel is also on the beach, not the greatest one for swimming though.
Cons: Beach, while not the hotels responsibility or fault, was a bit disappointing. There are many others very close by though.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Aditya is located in a perfect location ..away from the hassle and noise of hikkaduwa! Perfect get way for body and soul.

Cons: Everything
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Waiters could have been a little more attentive - but that’s being pickie
10.0 Excellent
Pros: KK is one of my favourite hotels, my boyfriend and I stayed here before and I couldn't resist visiting again. It is incredibly beautiful, the rooms are clean and cool. From my balcony I could watch the monkeys in the trees. The food is delicious, and the grounds stunning. I had an amazing massage (as a trained masseuse that's high praise) and to visit Galle they booked a tuktuk who waited for a few hours and brought me back again. The staff are welcoming, friendly and eager to help. And I absolutely love the way the hotel is decorated. A wonderful place to relax in peace and quiet. I will return again.
Cons: I love this place, the only part that could be an issue is the location. It can be hard for some to find but if you can show on maps then no problem.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Loved outdoor bathrooms, size of rooms.
Cons: Bed was a little small and too soft.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Set amongst the trees about 10-15 mins from the coast, this property is really lovely. We had the Peacock room which was huge. The rooms themselves were very comfortable and well maintained and are beautifully designed/decorated. Each morning we would observe the local wildlife which are present outside the windows. Staff were friendly and accommodating. Whilst the communal pool is lovely. I should have probably opted for a room with a private pool as it would have added to the satisfaction of this accommodation.
Cons: The food could improve - although it is better than many other places I ate in whilst in Sri Lanka.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Loved this place - real classy, accommodation was exceptional, staff were amazing, food and amenities fantastice. Hard to fault
Cons: Nothing.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff worked very hard to make it a wonderful break. They couldn’t do enough
Cons: Nothing
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Excellent service, including a coconut on arrival. Great staff. Really beautiful room including outdoor bathroom and shower. Food was excellent. Pool and gym were also great.
Cons: It was a very quiet, peaceful place but almost too quiet. I thought they could have done with a little soft music by the pool and at dinner. The place was absolutely lovely but I'm not sure it was worth the price.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: The staff is incredible. Everyone is so sweet and very attentive. While small, the grounds and views are beautiful. The hotel is beautifully decorated and everything was incredibly comfortable.
Cons: The water in the shower was not hot. I also wish the spa was a little more relaxing. It's small, shades closed so you can't really enjoy the scenery, and the lights were on. Would be great to see a little more investment in this space.

9.6 Excellent
Pros: This was the perfect relaxed atmosphere to finish a two week trip around Sri Lanka. The hotel oozes calm, whilst it is sufficiently close to Galle for any dinner/amenities required. Elke has built a serene jungle escape and we would, without doubt, return for another stay (for more aerial yoga!)
Cons: Some rooms have blinds without curtains, but the staff put up sheets in the evenings to lessen the light exposure at our request. Food was good quality but expect to pay a little more than the Sri Lankan standard.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Elke and the staff were fantastic and very welcoming. The house is lovely with great facilities, away from the hussle of Galle Fort. We took part in the meditation morning session which was fantastic and a great way to start our day.
Cons: We are just sad we didn’t stay longer and really appreciate the peaceful gorgeous house.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: An oasis, beautiful accommodation, wonderful staff including responsive and professional Owners, food was amazing, pool was huge and lovely... what’s not to love?
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This is small boutique hotel approximately 20 minutes form Galle on a tea estate. The house and gardens are absolutely gorgeous with a stunning pool. There are daily yoga sessions taught by Elke who also owns the hotel. She is very experienced and the sessions are wonderful. All the staff are so helpful and the freshly made food is delicious.A highlight of our trip to Sri Lanka.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everyting was perfect and attention to detail quite remarkable. The house sits right in amongst stunning trees with the pool jutting unto the jungle to create such strong connection with nature. Delicious food served on the divine terrace from breakfast to dinner means you just totally relax. Or enjoy Elkes daily meditation and yoga classes in beautiful space overlooking hillside. Massage treatments plus tea plantation tours and other delights also available. There is nothing to fault.
Cons: Probably the best boutique hotel ever. Unique mix of incredible style and 5 star comfort and yet I felt like I was at home and could totally relax. Absolutely fabulous place created by Elke and her exceptional team.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Being in the mountains with uninterrupted views, quiet and peaceful. The beautiful building and attention to detail, the yoga classes, the food was delicious, staff were attentive and very service oriented. Spending New Year’s Eve there was very special. What a treat.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: beautiful room, and also lovely places to sit and relax
Cons: cant think of anything
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Niyagama House is nicely off the beaten track at the top of a tea plantation in a very peaceful setting. The room was comfortable and clean with a lovely four poster bed. The bath room was clean and functional too. The food was excellent and was able to be adapted to my wife's requirement for gluten-free. The service was great though everything is freshly cooked so preparation time needs to be allowed for. The pool area is very nice. Although they don't serve wine or beer, they are happy for you to bring your own and will provide appropriate glasses and even serve it for you. The yoga classes and spa treatments were also excellent.
Cons: The room needed some maintenance - only one of three bedside lights was working and the A/C was so noisy that we had to get it looked at by the manager climbing a ladder in our room at 10:30 at night when my wife was already in bed. We would not have slept without!
9.2 Excellent
Pros: environment nice, yoga class nice, service nice.
Cons: bathroom no ventilation, wet after take shower! for activity offered by property, better to clear the price before offer.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Elle and Prasad were very helpful before and during our stay. Thanks to Elke for preparing the birthday cake for us. It’s a pity that our stay is too short that we can’t enjoy the yoga class with elke. Hope to come back to this beautiful place.

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel is really beautiful and the staff is great. A very quiet and beautiful place in Galle
Cons: Do not take the soaps from the bathroom!! My little daughter took them, a employee checked before we went and he said from the window to the manager when we were leaving. We had to take them out of the suitcase even if it was already inside the car. They told us that the boats were ceramic. It is diferent from other hotel that you can take them. The situation made us feel a little bad and uncomfortable.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Property was pretty calm, clean and comfy
10.0 Excellent
Pros: When I booked the hotel on the way to Galle by train from Colombo, the owners replied promptly and they (the owners !) came to pick me up at the station in one hour. He drove me to the Galle Fort as I asked to see the sunset, and they took my luggage to the hotel. When I arrived at hotel in the evening I surprised how clean it is and how fancy it is ! It was a big good surprise. Inside of the hotel is extremely clean and you will feel you can walk around barefoot. The owner and the staffs always make sure you are okay, if you have some request, don’t hesitate to ask them. They are willing to help you and make you satisfied. About the breakfast, as I am vegan I asked them vegetarian choice, then they tried to make the vegetarian breakfast for me. As the review of their breakfast was super good, I tried the curd with kitul sugar(natural one), and it was sooooo good. They have nice Yoga shala outside (currently it’s a dining space). When I practiced yoga in the morning, I saw a cow coming inside to eat some bush, iguanas, squirrels, birds flying around. The breeze from the trees were also nice, it was so peaceful moment.... The owner is a quiet guy, and his close friend also- but once you start talking with them, they has some humor to make you laugh unexpectedly. It was good to talk with him.
Cons: None I forgot my ring in the room and I didn’t notice it, when he notice my ring he texted me and he brought it to my next hotel in Mirissa for free!!!! Thank you so much for your kindness!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This was definitively the best hotel we stayed in during our Sri Lanca vacation! The house is spacious and very well kept, the huge garden is lovely with a great pool (especially at night) and a turtle that is running around. The staff is very friendly and breakfast as well as dinner were exceptionally good. The surrounding are quiet and only a few minutes away from the fort by TucTuc. Absolute recommendation!

Pros: Location excellent inside the Fort. Staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. Thank you to Chamath who went out of his way to make our stay unforgettable - For instance we wanted to rent a scooter and 30mins later there is one in front of the hotel waiting for us. We felt really taken care of. Also many thanks to Wasantha and Shanika. Decor was gorgeous - the owner can come decorate my home anytime. The food was amazing thanks to Nalin who is a wonderful chef, who also made us "special request" dishes. We tried a few "famous" eateries outside that could not begin to compare with the excellent food at Taru Villas. Don't eat anywhere else.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location, beautiful building, and impeccably clean
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The Villa is conveniently located, and the staff were very attentive. We had taken up 2 rooms, and the property was all to ourselves on the days we were there. It felt very private and intimate, and the staff made us feel very welcome. It was nice to call it home for a few days !!

Cons: some mold in the shower
9.6 Excellent
Pros: situated by the beach; extra helpful staff; possibility to rear scooter; happy hours for drinks
Cons: the cabana is a bit old, needs some renovation
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Every thing and specially, service from Anthony was great. He is a really a great asset to the company. So please look after him since he is all about to make a difference. Keep up the good work.
Cons: There is nothing to highlight.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Massive room, comfy bed, hot shower, excellent aircon (when there wasn’t a power cut), huge bed (over 7ft long!), beautiful views, the sound of the sea, numerous options to sit/lie & chill (balcony, sun beds, beachfront seats), staff service was perfect (thank you Anthony in particular), watching the turtles in the sea was a unique experience, food was good (try the chilli & garlic calamari...hot!), happy hours with 2-4-1 drinks (1-2pm and 6-7pm)...and the beach itself was very relaxed and never too busy. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.
Cons: We stayed in room A-2 rather than one of the Cabanas so can only comment from that perspective but the road noise and occasional very loud train did make sleeping beyond 6am a bit of a problem. Although we were never in bed late as everything close by (and the hotel) shuts at 10pm so we did always get a good sleep overall. The other strange concept was having to order your dinner by 5/5.30pm if you wanted it. When I’m paying as much as this for a hotel I do expect to choose when/if I eat and make a late decision if that takes my fancy. The restaurant is advertised to the outside world so what do they do if someone walks in off the street at 8pm and asks for a table?! Although another minor complaint in what was generally a positive experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful place! The staff was absolutely lovely, caring and helpful, in special Antony. The cabana was very nice and clean. Breakfast was amazing and dinner also delicious! Thank you these wonderful days. We would recommend the Rockside Cabanas Hotel 100%
Cons: Everything perfect!!!
6.3 Good
Pros: Being so close to the beach was great. Anthony was really lovely and so helpful! He was so friendly and nothing was too much to ask from him. He organised taxis for us, recommended places for us to visit, arranged for us to have our breakfast on the cabana and was generally a very lovely friendly person, he really made our stay there. Mini bar prices were cheap, and aircon worked very well. Breakfast was lovely with a good selection of food. also the Tuk Tuk driver opposite the hotel was great he gave us his number and was always there whenever we needed him he recommended places to us and was very friendly! I would recommend using him
Cons: The cabana bathroom roof was cracked meaning when it rained the floor was slippery and wet. There was only a very thin small sheet for a bed cover which was not very comfortable. The whole place just looked a little tatty and old, it could be a really really lovely hotel if a bit of money was spent on it, it could do with a refurbishment. One night we had two rats run down the inside roof of our cabana, we asked to be moved rooms by which the hotel owner told me it couldn’t possibly have been a rat and she won’t move our room. To which I told her I won’t be giving her a good review and she was completely unwilling to help in anyway. So the next morning she found us another room in the main hotel, another cabana also had a rat in it and she set traps to catch them and release them elsewhere. The cabanans are extremely dark and could Do with a nice big window or sliding door.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property right on the beach, very helpful and professional staff. And the owner went out of her way to please us. We stayed for 2 weeks and enjoyed every moment.
Cons: The bathroom had not much ventilation.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful property with incredible staff, especially Antony who handled everything - front of house, guest relations and service at the restaurant. The cleaning and kitchen team were all friendly and very welcoming. Great food served at the restaurant. Location was perfect, close enough to walk to other properties and restaurants, and still have that peaceful relaxing experience that isn't too busy. Ten minutes from Unawatuna, and fifteen minutes from Galle Fort for a more busy tourist vibe. Beautiful beach with turtle watching from your balcony.
Cons: Unfortunately we had four days of torrential rain which brought about a few unforeseen issues in one of the two rooms we had booked, however the team ensured our comfort and offered a great alternative room.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Very pleasant staff, very helpful. Assisted in resolving any questions, agreed for the early check-in and late check-out. Good breakfast, very nice view and the hotel area.
Cons: A little bit expensive restaurant.

8.3 Excellent
Pros: We were greeted warmly with a welcome drink and a smile. The bathroom, bed and cute veranda were lovely and all very clean and the staff were great.
Cons: Our room was downstairs next to the kitchen/reception area and it was noisy in the morning. Also, due to the rain (although not the property's fault completely) there was a loud and constant dripping through out the night. Not the best value for money in Sri Lanka.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Very nice hotel with a beautiful garden in the middle of the fort. Our room was perfectly clean and had a big bathroom. The staff helped us a lot (even with a super-express laundy). Thank you Pradeep.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything! Great little hidden boutique hotel.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: This is a beautiful small hotel, located in a small street in the heart of Galle. This is old Dutch mansion that has been lovingly restored. We were upgraded to an upstairs room with a lovely little balcony. The rooms are small but comfortable, there are large common areas - we really appreciated the common tea counter. Breakfast is large and very good - especially the Sri Lankan and English breakfast.
Cons: Because of an electrical fault, there was no hot water on both days we were there, and no water on one day. But the manager was extremely apologetic and let us use a downstairs bathroom for our showers.
7.1 Good
Pros: Location was perfect
Cons: Price/quality
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful garden, with a family of 4 we got an upgrade with a private terrace. Very complete breakfast. Welcome drink. In the old fort of Galle, so al sightseeing very close.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Located inside the Galle Fort, this smallish boutique hotel is like an oasis in the desert. The staff gave us a great welcome and really looked after us. The room was smallish but had everything we needed. Bathroom was adequate. Comfortable four poster bed with over net if required. Good WiFi. The breakfast was light but very enjoyable and the lounging area out the front is wonderful and cool.
Cons: would have liked a pool but it was explained that under the Galle City rules, all buildings must be sympathic to their past, and thus a pool is not allowed.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Tucked away in one of the side streets within Galle Fort, Mango House is a little oasis of peace and quiet. Perhaps not as many frills as some of the other hotels nearby, but has so much charm and personality. A simple but lovely breakfast was served on the terrace, overlooking mango trees, and the pretty bougainvillea and frangipani. I loved the books available to borrow to read, and my room, complete with four poster bed, was restful and comfortable. And a very special mention for the very lovely man, whose name I have forgotten, who welcomes the guests, and serves breakfast, who was so friendly and helpful.
Cons: I'm not sure I would change anything or ask anything more of it.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Breakfast was amazing, service was sincere and friendly and extremely helpful, the location itself is absolutely beautiful, right in the middle of the Fort. Highly recommended

10.0 Excellent
Pros: That was a long time I did not have breakfast in the room. That was a great service and beautiful view for a breakfast. This resort is small enough to feel like a boutique hotel but big enough to offer all the facilities. Yes it is pricy for Sri Lanka but this is real international level and service. The ocean view room are just gorgeous and very large. Bathroom is spacious and with two separated space for each of us.
Cons: no table in the room for the breakfast

Cons: Perfect
7.9 Good
Pros: The room was huge, clean and had air-conditioning!! Bed was comfortable. When the water was actually hot, it was a lovely shower The location above all, was brilliant. 2 mins from the heart of the Fort, beautiful evening sunset views. The lovely inside terrace, it was great to sit and watch the sun go down and protect us from the rain. Quick WiFi.
Cons: The staff were very strange and made me feel uncomfortable, the way they stood in the doorway and just hung around, and stared whenever we went anywhere. It was very unsettling. It's a shame we never really met the owner apart from the moment we arrived because he did seem the nicest out of everyone. They charged a % service charge on 2 bottles of water? It's not a restaurant! It's not that it was expensive it's just the principle, it's just 2 bottles of water! The shower was intermittently hot, I appreciate they use solar panels and it wasn't sunny for most of the time we were there, but knowing that, they should keep the secondary boiler warm, and we shouldn't have to ask for hot water all the time! The noise from the school next door woke us up at 7am everyday. This should be advertised that its raucously noisy very early everyday. We had an issue with people staying down the hall, smoking (which came up the hall into our room, and as non smokers it was very uncomfortable) and playing music until midnight and we asked them to turn it down, but they continued. we sent a message via here and noone replied and hasn't even replied to this date or addressed it afterwards, which I find really rude. There was a cockroach in the bathroom. I got a bed-bug style bite from the bed. (See photo!) For the price I would have expected much more.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff were fantastic and accommodating - I was sick during our stay, and they made me a special tea, and allowed my sister and I to check out later at no extra cost. The room was exceptionally clean and the location was excellent. For the price it is excellent value.

Pros: Naman picked us up from the airport and he&his team gave us a really warm welcome in Sri Lanka. We were able to communicate in English and even German. The hotel is super central in Galle Fort, room was simple but clean and comfy. Breakfast was really delicious. They organised tuktuks for us and took care of us very well. In addition, the view from the balcony was amazing. We recommend this guest house wholeheartly!

Pros: Amazing location, we couldn't find a better one in the fort! The balcony is also great. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Tip: try the fresh juices at the local market stand across the homestay a little to the right near the sea! They are only 60lkr and so nice :)
Cons: The breakfast is great, just a little expensive if you're on a budget.

Featured amenities include a 24-hour front desk, luggage storage, and laundry facilities. A roundtrip airport shuttle is provided for a surcharge (available 24 hours), and free self parking is available onsite.
7.1 Good
Pros: Basic guesthouse near the beach that we were not able to visit because of the high waves. There is one shop just next to the guesthouse where the holder also cooks dinner. The guesthouse owner organized airport pick-up and transfer to our next destination in air conditioned comfortable van by a very kind taxi driver. Breakfast was very simple continental type.
Cons: Recommended only for short stays, we stayed there one night. Located on the main road which is very busy so walking to nearby places is highly discouraged.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Had a perfect one night stay at Anara. Just a pitstop before a wedding nearby. Kasun was very hospitable and accomodating. Especially as I mucked up my dates! The room had all I needed. Just a bit closer to the main road than I imagined but all was great.
Cons: Not many dinner options open nearby with the off season, so I just went next door to the super local family kitchen. Great meal for 400rs. Free smiles and laughs ;)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: This place is a fantastic value for money, location is great - 2 min walk from the beach. Room has everything what is needed - hot water in the bathroom, shampoo/shower gel, iron, minibar, etc. Breakfast was tasty & more than enough food. Kasun is a very welcoming host, he is always around and provides all the necessary information. Thank you! :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you're looking for a beautiful, clean, yet authentic stay close to Galle/Unawatuna/the prettiest beaches a little bit away from the mainstreamed touristy places, this is all dreams come true. It was honestly the best stay I have had in Sri Lanka, just because it feels like home. The room is beautifully decorated, everything is clean and Kasun does not leave you with any wishes unfulfilled. Enjoying the sounds of the waves in the hammock or directly on the beach, which is perfect to swim and chill at in the shade of the palm trees, or breakfast on the private porch, you can have it all!
Cons: Seriously can't think of anything!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Kasun is awesome! He is so passionate about his flourishing business. We loved the tour of the property and beach on arrival. He is very friendly, up for a chat and to give advice on the area. The beach is the best we have seen in all of Sri Lanka! We loved it. The rooftop is also cool especially during the monsoon rain. You can have a lay in the hammock and drift off to sleep. The bed sheets were beautiful - loved the colours - and also very comfortable. Lastly, we had the best massage ever from the beautiful Balinese masseuse! Highly recommended!!
Cons: Just the wifi connection wasn’t very strong- however it turned into a positive because we spent more time talking to each other and enjoying the nature! We even saw monkeys in the early morning.

Pros: Great welcome when I arrived at the hotel, with a fresh cold face washer, which was much appreciated after a hot walk from the train station and a stuffy 2.5hrs on the train, this was then followed by a complementary fresh coconut juice.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful, modern building, great pool, friendly staff and a secluded spot. Deen and Kepi were incredible hosts and made us feel very welcome. The towel arrangements we can back to each night were very sweet touches. We were very sad to be leaving this special spot behind. Couldn’t recommend it more.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Zen-like atmosphere, totally relaxing place. Service was warm and friendly. The property was spotlessly clean. The lack of ACs was quite refreshing, we didn't miss it.
Cons: Food options were a bit limited, although perhaps understandable as there are only three rooms to cater for.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff are AMAZING and extremely attentive. We had fantastic food on site for two nights, where a private chef cooked us a delicious four-course dinner the first evening and a traditional Sri Lankan spread the second evening. The location is beautiful - very tranquil and quiet. The rooms are large, very modern and clean. We would definitely stay again!
5.0 Okay
Pros: The chef was very nice, the food is delicious especially the breakfast.
Cons: Overall we didn’t enjoy our stay as much as we expected considering the price. The location was probably the biggest negative for us, just too far to walk to the city. The welcome at the beginning wasn’t the best.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful spot with genuine staff, good food and stylish interior. Go visit!
Cons: None
9.6 Excellent
Pros: I cannot stress enough how great the food was. We had the four-course dinner which was one of the best meals I’ve had in my life. It was freshly cooked right in front of us and was the perfect amount. The breakfast had more options than we could finish and it was absolutely amazing. We loved the board games at the lobby and it was the perfect way to spend our evening.The bed was comfortable and I loved the unique design of the property. We also loved the service from the staff.
Cons: The TV in our room wasn’t working which was quite disappointing. It was also a bit loud during day time because there were construction work around the property. It would be nice if they could do something to sound proof the rooms.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Stunning villa - everything about this place was amazing. The pool, the rooms the hidden spot to sit and relax with a book. The staff were incredible helpful and due to the hotel only having 3 rooms we really felt we go to know them and them us. They were incredible helpful in booking use TukTuks into town. The pool is just simple beautiful and built into the rock - this really is a eco-hotel.
Cons: There was nothing I didn't like - but reflecting on my Sri Lankan trip I would say that the evening meal was a little overpriced and if I was to repeat I probably would have spent some evening eating out.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place and friendly staff!
Cons: The view, the pool, the food!
