Good to Know
Although the hotel is built between a lagoon and beach, the choppy waters make it impossible to swim there so if you’re feeling adventurous and fancy taking a proper dip in the ocean, we recommend taking a tuktuk to Kalutara South train station and taking a 20-minute train to the (very local and not yet touristy) coastal town of Bentota.
The hotel is just a 10 minute tuk tuk ride from historic town of Kalutara and is a great base to discover the beauty and culture of Sri Lanka.
