Relaxation and attentive service

Reading, United Kingdom

We spent 8 nights here in January originally booking a Beach Studio but were upgraded to the Ocean Studio. The difference between the two is that the Beach Studio is on the ground floor and the Ocean Studio is on the first floor. We couldn’t actually see the ocean as we were towards the back of the complex but that wasn’t an issue for us. Food - we went for bed and breakfast and paid for each of our meals separately. The meals were of good quality when picked off the a la carte menu. When there was a buffet on (mainly for those guests who were on all inclusive, although you could pay for the buffet), the quality wasn’t all that but wpuld work out cheaper than paying for a la carte. We did want more specific Sri Lankan food, so we did push for the chef to make some “specials” for us. This was great service and done without fuss. Drinks - all the main stuff you could want. Not overly expensive compared to western countries but more expensive than going out. Beach - beautiful, just beautiful. Perfect place to unwind and relax. Pool - big enough. It was quite when we were there so could get busy if fully occupied. The staff always had towels ready and were ready to help when required. SPA - one of the best massages I have had (and I have had a few). Definitely worth a visit. Activities - there is a games room available with board games, table tennis and pool. Excursions - the hotel can arrange excursions for you. We had one to Sigiriya rock. Drivers money charged to the room and all extras were explained before leaving. I thought this was really good as you don’t get any surprises then. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would come back again. Definitely a place to relax for 4-5 days at least.

Hotel is on the best beach in Sri Lanka. The rooms are very spacious and clean The food is very tasty and has a great selection. I have to praise the manager of Chinthak is always available to guests and constantly visits the guests and helps whatever they need. The staff are friendly and want to help whatever they need.

Swimming Pool

The large infinity pool is certainly one of the prime focal points of the resort— it stretches from the main building seemingly into the ocean's horizon. Its furnished decking is a great place to sunbathe and relax.
