5/5 Excellent

Kindness of staff. The quiet and space around was balm to the weary traveller.

Stayed 3 nights in Mar 2019

4/5 Good

Nice beach resort, short rickshaw ride from temple

We were lucky to get a nice room with view of sea. Our only disappointment was that the restaurant wasn't better located, as it was set back so far from sea & all under cover.

Stayed 1 night in Dec 2018

5/5 Excellent

Extremely attentive staff and fantastic restaurant. We went for the Sri Lanka theme, and enjoyed the live music at dinner as well as the excellent Sri Lankan food at breakfast. Very clean beach. They need to check the plumbing to avoid bathroom odors.

Stayed 1 night in Oct 2018

Pleasant stay at IBR

The room was spacious and clean. IBR has a private beach which was clean. It also had a nice pool where we enjoyed our time.
