The first view from the hotels is breathtaking, through palm trees over the infinity pool into the ocean. from the terrace you see the fishermen sitting on stilts in the surf, a unique sight. there is a small sheltered public ocean beach right outside the property which is easily accessible. The infinity pool is large and very beautiful. We thought it was too warm and preferred the sea. The rooms have beautiful views over the ocean including sunsets. They are modern and functional, quite pretty and comfortable. Lighting switches take getting used to. The staff is superbly friendly and helpful. Spa treatments are good if not inexpensive. Best food are roasted cashews with curry leaves. There are many excellent dining alternatives in nearby Galle which is very worthy of a visit. An old dutch later British colonial fort with a well preserved rampart that invites evening walks. Very picturesque.
