Amazingly beautiful hotel and strategically located. Early check in accommodated at no charge. Upgraded to Premier indulgence room. Great spa and people. Chinese food needs to be improved and service at breakfast restaurant lacks attention.

We have just come back from a very nice stay at the Vivanta. The hotel is great & staff very friendly & helpful. We had half board here which probably was a really good idea as there are not many restaurants around the hotel. The buffet restaurant was absolutely yummy ! We ate Sri Lanka food the entire time.

The hotel is well situated, at the end of the street where all the resorts are so there is no through traffic. The breakfast is great. Food prices are reasonable so it does not pinch one's pocket to eat in the hotel, unlike many other 5* resorts. From the swimming pool one has a clear view of the sea, particularly... More

I cannot fault the staff or accommindation. If they could change the weather, they would! We asked for an upgrade to a sea view having already upgraded to a deluxe room with garden view. We canceled this as when we were shown to our room we could see the sea even though it was a garden room. Wine, fruit and... More
