          The loft room is amazing however if you look hard there are some rough bits, the hotel is having some minor renovations lets hope the problems get resolved. The food is excellent but you may be sharing it with chipmunks and crows as some of the guests insist on feeding them this needs to be stopped. Facilities are second to none, a full gym, spa, two souvenir shops and large swimming pool.

One thing we found amusing was the many rows of plastic blow up characters for sale, made it very colorful though. After all this a beverage was called for and we sat outside at a lovely hotel watching the ...

I shouted to the others and walked on, wondering why they were taking so long. However, when they caught back up, Nai had jumped off a rock, and cut her toe pretty badly. She hobbled round the beach to meet Phil and Jess. We started with cocktails - mojitos, and then later ordered food. Annie asked the waiter if the dish she wanted was spicy, he said ...

This sadly also meant that taking photographs was completely out of the question. If we had taken one hand off of the rail who knows what fate would have befallen us.

          It was a splendid experience, however wet we became, and we eventually realised that we would need a complete change of clothes when we ...

          ... Also as we came in low season so the prices were cheap! Beers at the bars (200 rupees) during 5-10pm happy hour . Mirissa's beach was so quiet and relaxing! You could hire a body board for an hour (200 Rupees) the sea is perfect for it but be careful as i got taken out by massive waves a few times! In the evening the beach is beautiful it lit up with a variety of beach ...

Just as I was laughing at the need for such a sign/bucket, some guy ran into the bathroom and threw up all over the floor (and my flip flops), not really using the bucket at all! It was about the same point that we decided that we might take a change of venue.
