The hotel exceeded my expectations. I booked and Executive Double Room and it was impeccible in all respects and very modern. The bathroom was absolutely excellent in its finish. Internet access was offered for free which was not expected. I could not have expected more! The hotel staff were also excellent and could not do enough to help. The only... More

Stayed a day at the hotel through Sri Lankan Airlines, was a wonderful experience. Very extensive food buffets breakfast, lunch and dinner, very nicely done up rooms with all modern amenities. Stayed at the new hotel building, so everything was brand spanking new, and looked and felt refined. Excellent WiFi coverage throughout, very comfortable and the staff were courteous and... More

I stayed in the new building for one night. Very close to the airport. The room was clean with two single beds, and a beautiful bathroom with shower unit, although a little awkward to get in and out of because it's raised from the floor. Set in nice gardens. Staff very nice and polite.

Ignore all the old reviews for this hotel -- they were written before a major remodeling project earlier this year. The updated hotel is fantastic -- certainly the best hotel next to the airport in Sri Lanka. The rooms are spacious and contemporary; the facilities are excellent; and the staff are simply wonderful and caring. My wife and I stayed... More

We stayed in this hotel as we arrived 01.00hrs and after a long flight from Melbourne didn't want to travel any further. Located amidst a large coconut plantation bordering the Negambo Lagoon it is only a 8 minutes drive from the Bandaranaike international airport and is very convenient to stay if you have a transfer which is too long to...

Stayed here for one night only due to its close proximity of the airport. Arrived late and had dinner from the menu.. Choose something simple but was very tasty. Enjoyed it a lot. Breakfast was average, nothing special. Wanted to use pool but due to weather decided against it but looked quite nice, as did the spa packages but again... More

We needed a hotel close to the airport for an early flight and decided to go with this hotel. I must say the hotel has had a whole new wing built 10 months ago that is both modern and spacious to complement the older 28 year old wing which was the original hotel. The hotel has a decent enough size... More
