The staff works tirelessly to keep you happy and having a pleasant stay. I stated for a week this past summer, and everything went well. They have a nice pool and the beach is right outside. Thanks again!

Great hotel in Ahangama
I had such a great time at Insight Resort. Very clean, nice hotel. With very helpful and polite staff, I’ve never felt unattended. Beautiful private beach access and spacious pool. I chose the room with sea view and enjoyed so much. The food at the restaurant was amazing and super fresh. Value and quality are really attractive! Will definitely come back!

I would rate "Insight" at 5 stars. Heaps of reasons to do so, especially because of the professional and attentive staff. However, I can only give them 4.9 stars... the music selection does not match the hotel environment. It's a beachfront hotel with a lot of surfers, but they play old Roy Orbison and Elvis music. Also, they play random Italian music. It's not bad music, it just doesn't fit the property. My opinion is they should have something more Bali Lounge / Bali Chill style. It would make breakfast buffet time so much more enjoyable... listening to beach chill music instead of random 1950s US songs. Besides that, 5 stars!!!

Update your information!
The hotel is super clean and safe and the staff are welcoming and friendly, however their manner is a bit off-putting as they only seem to know two words: "Room Number". Even after two weeks, the waiters at breakfast asked me my room number when they had seen me every day. The restaurant has no vibe whatsoever, long empty tables in a huge bright room. Your plates are cleared before you have finished your last mouthful of food, and you are brought the bill to sign without being asked if you want anything else. Waiters hover over you watching your every move as if you are not to be trusted - it can be quite disconcerting! The food however is great, and the Chef is amazing. He came out every morning to see if I liked the breakfast, and recommended certain dishes - he even made me a special pasta one evening as he knew I'd like it spicy. The information needs to be updated on the website/ site as, whilst this may be due to pandemic restrictions, if I had known certain things I would not have chosen this resort. As a coffee lover, they only have instant coffee, even at breakfast, it's disguised as filter coffee! No coffee bar. No snack bar/deli. There is only 1 (lovely) pool. No roof terrace. The Juice Bar is just a sign (it's a storage place for beach mattresses & towels). The picnic area is a bunch of wooden benches. No specific children's play area. No sun umbrellas at all. No beach loungers (pool area only). Gayan, one of the pool attendants was super though.

Picnic Area (not allowed food outside though!)
Lovely Pool but no sun umbrellas and not allowed to take the beds to the beach (so no beach loungers as advertised)
Restaurant - clean and sterile!

Dreamy beach views
My friend and I stayed here for 2 nights as a treat to end our trip in Sri Lanka. It was a dream. The staff were great and the facilities were lovely. We paid extra to have a sea view which was amazing, but you spend most of your time by the pool or in the sea! We got tuk tuks to the local restaurants at night, and did an afternoon/evening trip to Galle. Breakfast buffet was great too. Lovely hotel, would definitely recommend!
