A distinctively designed eco-friendly hotel offering guests a glorious waterfront setting and welcoming service.
This charming and traditionally-styled hotel, which has recently been renovated, is a great choice for those wanting to indulge in some local culture as the historic sights of the UNESCO-listed city of Galle are just a short distance away. The unique combination of Moorish, Oriental and Dutch influenced architecture and the striking setting on a rocky headland overlooking the ocean is sure to impress you as soon as you arrive. The hotel also places great importance on their green initiatives, with a strong focus on both environmental and community activities. Manicured gardens play host to facilities including a spa, two swimming pools and three restaurants.
All-day dining is available at the main restaurant Cardamom Café while seafood specialities are popular at fine-dining venue The Cinnamon Room. The produce at this hilltop restaurant is locally caught or sourced from nearby markets and beautifully flavoured using the island’s famous spices. For something a little more casual, head to Lorenzo’s Pizza Corner which is located near the pool. We love the resort’s signature dining options which include the ‘Among the Rocks' private barbecue and the Adam & Eve in-spa experience: a spa treatment followed by dinner. For pre-dinner drinks as the sun goes down and some post-dinner relaxation there’s the Coat of Arms Bar.
The Luxury Rooms, which are located in both the hotel's main wing and its spa wing, feature a balcony or terrace with resort and sea views. For a special treat, choose to stay in one of the three unique Themed Suites which have either Chinese, Moroccan or colonial Dutch-inspired décor.
