8/10 Very good

one of our favorites!
Beautiful hotel on the quiet side of Hikkaduwa. Great place to enjoy the beach without the packed in feeling of the center of Hikkaduwa. Gorgeous pool and rooftop and the food is fantastic. Staff is friendly and helpful. Only negative was construction going on right next door. Our room was just on the other side of the wall from it so it was loud at times. Never at night however. All in all, an excellent choice for Hikkaduwa beach!

Best hotel of the honeymoon
This hotel was the best of our honeymoon. The staff were brilliant, the hotel was immaculate and it was the one place that actually does some of the small things to be that little bit more eco-friendly - e.g. glass bottles of filtered water versus 8 plastic bottles a day. The food was also the best we experienced on our trip, especially the seafood/sushi.
