Lovely setting with the rooms around a large courtyard. Rooms are large and comfortable. There seem to be more staff than guests and they are all very personable. You can have breakfast or dinner sat around the courtyard where there are cute little bunnies on the grass in the centre and one morning a lovely peacock. We were the only people in the restaurant for dinner and the food was very good. It is a drive outside the main fort area where I think most people stay but it is therefore nice and quiet. Decor is very pleasing

... and order "Shex on ze Beech!" cocktails.
The beach is lovely, although very crowded, and the sea is gorgeously light blue, clear and warm. Vendors selling mango, pineapple and papaya ply their trade alongside souvenir sellers, masseurs, palm readers and even snake charmers with a monkey on a leash.
The following day we take a longer ride up the coast to Hikkaduwa and a quite incredible beach. It's vast and the kind of palm-fringed, ...
