Keeping with the resort's design, the lobby is open-air with a small reception desk and seating and leads off to the dining areas and pool to one side and the rooms to the other.
To enter the property, one must first pass through the fortress walls guarded by an oversized wooden gate. Once inside, the property is a combination of Dutch, Portuguese and Sri Lanka architecture but all on the minimalist side with subtle features and clean lines. The resort is a low-rise structure designed around a garden courtyard facing the beach. The pool is located between the rooms and the beach.
Rates are for Fortress rooms which feature a super king bed, open plan bathroom with rain shower, plasma television, Bose DVD player and sound system, espresso machine, minibar and in-room safe. Rooms are stylish and modern in design with muted decor and bold accents. Each room has a daybed and opens up to a courtyard of garden balcony.
The main restaurant is located near the pool and offers both an international menu as well as Sri Lankan specialities. Another dining option is set in the Fortress gardens and features a wood-fired pizza oven. The property also has a trendy lounge, tea area and 24-hour private dining.
