From the moment we came there we were greeted cordially with friendly staff. There is so much to do there, we did a drive overlooking the reservoir, and played golf which is a 10 min walk to the course. The SriLankan meals were scrumptious to say the least. A lovely infinity pool which overlooks the reservoir with cocktails just completed our stay there. Thank you to the amazing team at the glass house. You guys rock.
