I stayed here for one day/night as part of a tour of Sri Lanka. Wow! What a lovely little gem of a hotel this is. Tucked away in the bay, just along from Galle, situated right on the edge of the Indian Ocean. I knew this place would be fab the minute I arrived – the attention to detail is impressive. From the first whiff of incense in reception, the cleanliness, the friendly and welcoming staff, the wooden fixtures and interior design, even the loveliest welcome drink I’ve ever had.
We were welcomed warmly (I think by the manager/guest relations manager?). The room was amazing. Beautifully furnished, stylish, clean, comfortable, lovely balcony and lounger but with the most impressive and large bathroom which included a Jacuzzi bath. There was a huge comfortable bed and a choice of pillows. There was even a choice of soap – a beautiful touch I thought – so you could choose from a lovely selection of soaps and they would cut some off a huge block, fresh for you. I have high standards when it comes to bathrooms and this was very clean indeed.
I had a birthday whilst on holiday and the hotel organised a delicious birthday cake and fruit bowl for me – very lovely indeed.
Dinner on the sand next to the beach, really lovely food and stylishly done. Service was excellent. The same for breakfast the next day.
The ‘guest experience’ here was fantastic, the attention to detail impressive and the staff were all exceptional, regardless of role or job.
I was truly sad to only be here for one day, I happily could have stayed here for a good few days and when I return to Sri Lanka in the future, I will definitely be trying to spend at least a few days in this hotel. Wonderful.
