Modern rooms, stylish decor, funky showers, quality linens, comfortable king size bed and great views. Great pool, comfortable lounge chairs and beautiful gardens. A beautiful ocean front property with lots of options for sun beds by the pool or in the garden under the shade of the palm trees and views of the ocean. The staff were outstanding and very accommodating.

Lovely hotel, great service
This is a brilliant place to unwind and explore this part of Sri Lanka. Great service from a friendly staff and wonderful food, especially the breakfasts. The beach below hotel is not great but the pool is good, and there are some good beaches nearby. This hotel would suit someone after something quiet and low-key.

An excellent boutique hotel ideal for couples
My wife and I spent 4 days in the excellent R Degrees in Ambalangoda on full board basis recently. We were greeted by Mr Perera (the General Manager) and his front office team on arrival and check in was a breeze. R Degrees is a small boutique hotel (c.10 rooms) and you get a very personalized service. For example, Mr Perera made sure that our lunch and dinner menu was different for each day of our stay. Our room (the beach facing suite with a balcony) was very spacious and came with a large LED TV/satellite channels, a BOSE wireless speaker, separate shower room, jacuzzi bath and a separate WC. The food was good and restaurant/catering team was professional. A special mention goes to the brilliant Mr SUDATH who waited on us during our stay. The hotel grounds (excluding the public beach) were very well kept. A big thank you to Mr Perera and his team for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable!!!
