It's OK!

Spacious room
It's OK! the food wasn't great, the lake is nice but it also means lots of insects. We also found dead insects inside the jacuzzi, don't think they cleaned it before we arrived. SO we had to clean it before using it. Also Jacuzzi is located on the first floor balcony so everyone downstairs plus the people next door had a clear view of it therefore no privacy. Our overall experience was somewhat below expectation.

Fantastic getaway resort. Quiet, friendly,serene

Location- quiet and calm, very relaxed, cleanliness and design of building/rooms and lovely friendly and welcoming staff.
We had an amazing time during our stay and wish we had spent longer there. It is a little pricy but drink telly worth it. It is complete luxury with very comfortable rooms and facilities, open air bathroom was amazing and the roman theme is beautiful. It is a total chill out resort with beautiful views over he lake. I would definitely recommend this experience. All staff are very helpful, welcoming and kind.

quiet hotel with romance factor

quiet surroundings, jacuzzi, view
stay was very relaxing due to quiet surroundings, beautiful facilities and friendly staff. food was overpriced and breakfast a little disapointing in options and size. alltogether lovely getaway for couples or families seeking quietness. It might be too quiet for singles.

A must go.. Travel to SriLanka for this hotel only

Quietness, Nature and Service
From the moment the main door opened we started loving the experience. A quiet 8 rooms hotel with swimming pool ending almost in the lake.. Lush green surrounding with morning mist all over the Madhu river that gives an awesome breakfast experience. Your jacuzzi in the terrace of the room is something that no one must have ever experienced earlier. I definetly will go there again and again.. the staff was very friendly and it is totally worth the money. It is not for business traveller or people with a lot of kids.. ideal for couples of all ages..

The Nature, design, staff
This was the most fantastic stay ever! Everything is perfect and you don´t want to leave. Every momenet is like in Paradise. If it is something which isn´t perfect it is the food. The food isn´t bad but nothing special.

Amazing and Relaxing Stay at the Roman Lake!!

Relaxing, Romantic, Wonderful Rooms
Had a lovely stay at the Roman Lake!!! This is a small romantic roman villa style hotel located in tropical and quiet surroundings. Perfect getaway for couples and honeymooners to relax and unwind. Rooms are big and beautifully designed and overlook the pool and the river offering magnificent views. Beds are really comfortable and bathroom is huge. The Emperor Rooms have a balcony with private jacuzzi which was excellent. Food at the restaurant was delicious and nicely presented. Staff is attentive, helpful and very friendly. Wonderful beaches are a 30 minutes ride away by Tuk Tuk. Totally recommend this hidden gem set in the middle of nature yet close to interesting attractions on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Only minus is that they need to improve their information desk.

Absolutely loved this place!

Looking for a tranquil getaway, this is def the place. Big clean rooms, great staff, great view of the lake!
Loved this boutique hotel for many reasons. We got upgraded to the Claudius room. Other great rooms were Aurelius and Augustus. Large sized rooms, and every room has its own jacuzzi and a Ipod music deck. Bathrooms are fitted with a rain shower. The chef always managed to cook up a great meal but not everything is always available and you need to inform them in advance if you want smethg even if it is on the menu. The dont have an alcohol license yet but it should be done shortly we were told. Loved the overall design of this place, great for a quiet getaway as besides the jacuzzi and pool, there isnt much to do. They do have a boat ride (approx an hour and half) on the lake where you can visit the fish spa and the buddhist temple and check out the mangroves.

Gorgeous Property

Peace Personified
stayed in this gorgeous property for 3 nights a week back. this property is in balpitiya town which is 13 km away from bentota beach and 25 km away from hikkaduwa. frankly speaking if you wanna stay on beaches this might not be a great choice but if you wanna stay is a peaceful place which provides you with extraordinary amount of luxury you should stay here. large rooms, sexy bathrooms, private jacuzzi, private balcony and a great view of the lake in front of this property, etc!

Hôtel avec vue sur les mangroves

Hôtel fabuleux, calme et tranquillité rien de mieux pour fuir le bruit de la circulation, une vue à couper le souffle sur les mangroves
Très bon séjour, idéal pour décompresser. A savoir que vous êtes loin de toute civilisation mais à 10 minutes même pas de la plage en tuk tuk. Nous avons séjourné 4 nuits c est peu être un peu trop. Si vous rechercher le calme et la tranquillité cette hôtel et parfait!! En sachant que les hôtels au Sri Lanka n ont pas vraiment un bon rapport qualite prix celui ci vau le détour Ps pas d alcool servi à l hôtel mais c un détail
