What a fantastic hotel and staff! We stayed in the Aqua Romance room which has a huge jacuzzi and personal plunge pool. The bed was huge and very comfortable. The hotel itself is right on the beach which made the stay so relaxing. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t great so we didn’t end up swimming in the ocean. The hotel itself is located between Galle and Unawatuna and only costs about 400 rupees for a tuk tuk to each location. The food was amazing! Hoppers and curry for breakfast and seafood platters for dinner!! And finally, the staff were just incredible. So friendly and accommodating and always working with a smile on their faces. Can’t recommend this hotel enough.

Gorgeous location on the beach

Loved staying here. Location is a convenient 10min tuk-tuk ride to the Galle Fort. Absolute beachfront was awesome, and being able to watch the local fisherman down the beach a nice bonus. Super friendly and helpful staff and great food.
