Pool, food , quite place, next to beach and facing beach, clean and tidy, nice staffs
All in all everything is good
The resort is in a very quiet area in front of the end of Kalkudah beach which we much preferred than the actual Pasikudah because when we went (Mid December so off season) there was no one! Actually for many days we were the only customers of the hotel. The staff is kind and attentive to ask if everything is ok. Room was big, very clean, comfortable and the sea view (2nd floor) was great. Bathroom is small compared to the room. TV with both local and international channels (no movies in English available). Nice simple swimming pool and gardens with rabbits and peackock (crocodile in the back pond in wet season we saw it!!!) Tasty Sri Lankan food (medium price range) and varied breakfast every day. You can also pay by card but 3% extra.
- The area in front of the swimming pool is under construction but this didn't absolutely affect our experience it was even better for us as we could lie under there in case of rain but someone who doesn't read the reviews might be disappointed. - The WiFi was quite weak and in the second floor it didn't work in the rooms (for this price range in Sri Lanka is very disappointing but the area is a bit remote so doesn't have a good connection, this is what the manager told us). - Being low season the menu was a bit limited but if you order a few hours before you can choose a little more.
The last 100m to the hotel would submerge when it rains.this makes it difficult to reach the hotel.hot water didnt work .Garden needs to be maintained better.
On the positive side the pool is large and refreshingly cool. The garden is well kept with a few peacocks and other animals. The rooms are spacious and have a fantastic view of the sea and Kalkuda beach, which is only about 50 metres away. Rita, who runs the kitchen, is very helpful and friendly. Ample breakfast.
On the negative side, the hotel is only half finished. The area around the pool is a building site. No WiFi in rooms (as advertised), only at reception area. Most Western TV channels not subscribed to. There were lines of ants marching through the room and the occasional cockroach. The food menu was very limited. There was no fridge in the room so when I asked for ice, I was told they did not have ice cubes in their freezer, so I bought my own from outside - a hotel without ice for drinks???? There was no mosquito net or any possibility of hanging up our own. No mesh on windows. When it rained the water came through the bathroom roof and dripped down the walls. In general overpriced for what you get.
The hotel is new, nice and clean and has a great pool. Kalkudah Beach is very close (200m) and visible from the balcony. The staff is very nice and the food (breakfast and dinner) were great. The garden around the house is beautiful and there are 2 peacocks and a white rabbit walking around.
The second building which is located behind the pool is still under construction but no construction was going on when we were there so it didn’t matter to us. The breakfast/dinner are are a little bit sterile.
