Dining atCafé J, the brand’s signature restaurant,is an experience in itself as the well curated menu includes local and international flair with a creative, modern twist. Start your day with a smoky Shakshuka or fluffy pancakes with butter-crisped edges served with house-made salted caramel sauce or treacle.

Lounge by the pool or wander down to the pristine beach and take a dip or listen to the soothing sounds of the waves. Hotel J is an ideal destination for solo travellers who are keen to meet and socialise with other guests. Those interested in arts and culture, can organise a visit to the Ambalangoda Mask museum or participate in a lesson on mask carving and lace making followed by the Bawa trail – to explore Geoffrey Bawa’s Lunuganga and Bevis Bawa’s Brief Garden. The more energetic will have the opportunity to sign up for water sports activities in Bentota or whale watching and surfing in Mirissa.
