Personally, this experience was one of the best suite experiences in Sri Lanka. Friendly staff were guided us to find the hotel in first and, room was clean and tidy and foods were delicious.

Where to start. Nick Buckingham is a legend - and his hotel team is first rate. The food... oh the food - truly brilliant. Don’t leave this place without at least having ordered tuna for your supper. The bedrooms and bathrooms are a wow factor, the oceanfront pool is superb and the whole experience is fantastic. Well done Nick Buckingham - you’ve created a mini paradise. Kind regards Lucy & Chris CP
