Such a wonderful stay at this hotel. Anyone looking for peace and quiet and relaxing holiday this is the place to be. Eat gorgeous food, have a swim in the blue sea and to chill in a hammock..."The jo”

Family oriented hotel owned by very kind and approachable couple, situated on the golden sandy Nilaveli beach front. This is located very close to pigeon island. The sea is nice and calm with blue waters and its safe for swimming. Owners put the extra effort to keep the beach clean and tidy. This is a quiet beach where you get some peace and quiet, which what we were looking for. It's a brand new hotel with luxury accommodation. Rooms are very spacious with comfortable beds. All rooms have ocean view balconies to chill in the evening watching the sunset. The hotel staff are super friendly. The owners had kindly trained and given job opportunities to local people who would otherwise be without an income to look after their families. From the front desk to F&B to Kitchen everyone is so nice and went the extra mile to make our stay a wonderful experience. Great team work! We have requested Nilaveli speciality seafood dishes from the chef Ravi and he made those dishes mouthwatering and delicious. Every night we were amazed by the food. We came to stay for two nights but we didn't want to leave this beautiful relaxing place; instead we decided to extend our stay for another night. Also all this wonderful experience given by the hotel actually very affordable and doesn't cost an arm and a leg to stay here. They also organizes the trips to pigeon island and whale and dolphin watching. My wife and I enjoyed thoroughly our stay here and would recommend to anyone who is looking to eat gorgeous food, to have a swim in the beautiful blue sea and chill in a hammock all day long!

A beautiful, relaxing stay”

We travelled to Nilaveli after a hectic week of travelling and really enjoyed our stay at the hotel. The rooms were clean, spacious and simply but tastefully furnished and we enjoyed views of the ocean The staff were super helpful and nothing was too difficult for them. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a laid back and relaxing stay, away from the crowds.

nice brandnew hotel”

It is a nice brandnew hotel, large rooms, comfortable wooden floors, tables made from real tree cuttings,cool design... The location by the beautiful beach is very relaxing. We did not have a clothe hanger in our room, according to the manager some furniture were still in making, uh....anyway, The bathroom is very big, and the laundry and fittings were posh and comfortable, the floor and wall are concrete, and the delicacy and the roughness go nice together. Our room was equipped with a bathtub, and that costed us 10 dollars more. There is a great view from the tub with the infamous Pigeon Island, where most tourists went for snorkelling. The huge backyard was covered with fresh grass, in the middle there was a big rectangular dent where a pool will be built later on..uh... For now children play barefooted in it. The service soundly be considered extremely professional, but all staff were enthusiastic and polite, including the reception and waiters, they are willing to help with any small problem. As a conclusion, this isn't a grand and shocking hotel, but every detail matches our needs exactly and it was a very pleasant stay.

Excellent hotel, excellent experience.”

Basically the facilities there are deserved to be called as four star hotel, except for a couple of furniture you may feel a little bit rough which are made of raw wood, others like Appliances, timber floor, modern toilet & shower and bedding are all fantastic. It is more like a boutique inn, the staff there are not as professional as those in five star hotels, but they are extremely nice and make you feel welcome. BBQ buffet was available for dinner during our stay, we sit together with other people at one big table and played board game after dinner. It was amazing. The experience was terrific, and far beyond our expectation, highly recommended.

The view is gorgeous and very close to the seaside. I guess the hotel owner is a Chinese guy cuz all the facility are made in China, lol. So especially good for Chinese guests!

The staff were great. Friendly and did everything they could to help you and accommodate you. Large spacious rooms, clean and well maintained. Delicious food, both breakfast and dinner. I would highly recommend eating here. The only bad thing was the electricity which kept going down in different rooms. Think they did a new generator. However, dispite this, it did not ruin my stay and I would definitely stay here again, as would the friends who came with me.

Great Location, but OK Service”

The location is great but this hotel caters mainly to Chinese Tourists. Hence being a non Chinese it was a bit tough, especially since I'm vegetarian and there was no one who spoke decent English. However, one of the staff members was kind enough to share his breakfast with me seeing that I don't take meat. Wifi connection was very bad.

Hotel is nice & beautiful. Rooms were as in the photos nice and beautiful. Location is great. View is fantastic. Beachfront as mentioned. Literally on the beach. You can hear the waves crashing to the room. We didn't use the pool but seems ok. Can be satisfied with the facilities on the premises. If you intend to go on snorkeling at pigeon's island, it is walking distance to the ticketing booth from the hotel. It is about 750m walk along the beach to the left from the hotel. I recommend to do so as the fresh water bathing places and changing areas near the entrance to the pigeon's island are not good at all. We chose the deluxe double room with bath and it is ideal for a couple as it has open concept bathroom. How ever free wifi is not working and there were less options for food.
