In addition to the two pools, fitness centre and spa, there are many water sports on offer;  including windsurfing, water skiing, snorkelling, canoes, banana boats, deep sea fishing and diving nearby.  Guests can also experience a mangrove boat safari nearby or visit the local turtle hatchery, and the fortified town of Galle is just an hours drive.
