Close to the beach, great pool, huge room
No wifi in the rooms, our double bed was two beds pushed together and our shower head didn’t work.
The property sets this location apart from all others in Trincomalee. The hotel surrounded by trees gives you a feeling of being within a forest. Also the staff is extremely friendly and customer oriented. Food is brilliant specially the seafood which is there specialty
Fab location on gorgeous stretch of beach. Get the right room and you literally run out onto the beach, service was impeccable and staff friendly. The hotel is well laid out over attractive grounds, never feels anything other than quite intimate, other than a gym it has all the facilities you’d expect - and lots of trips and tours etc can be organised as well as snorkelling off a nearby nature reserve island (zPigeon Island) and it has a fun scuba school in its grounds too.
It is a resort, so it ps not convenient fir anything than itself ! Once you’re in, you will probably spend all your time here, which is not a problem if like us you needed or wanted a beach break, but the prices reflect that you are a bit of a captive audience - not the rooms, the food and drink. WiFi is localised to a central area and doesn’t reach individual rooms.
The beach..the pool...the location just off Pigeon Island....the Staff....and pretty much everything else was good..
The bed and pillows were a little too soft. A little firmer would be preferable. The spa was over 2km away from the hotel....
