Only had a few days in Sri Lanka and decided to spoil myself a little with staying here before my flight out. Considering the combined things I judge accommodation on, this is one of the best places I've ever stayed... anywhere. The building, design and decor were 1st class. My room and en suite were better than anything I've had... More

What a wonderful hotel this is! I stayed with my husband for a couple of nights at the end of our holiday in Sri Lanka and we both loved it. The rooms are huge and well equipped. The minibar drinks are honestly priced and they provide some free laundry. The boys working there are absolutely wonderful, happy and helpful. The... More

The stay didn't get off to a good start as the guy driving the car from the hotel hadn't checked to see that my flight was arriving a little early, unlike an array of drivers from other Negombo hotels who were waiting for their customers, so I had to hang around while a friendly guy at the airport rang the...

One of the nicest boutique hotels in the world. The colours, the design, the incredible pool, it is all amazing. Add to that the fantastic staff allways smiling and prepared to give you service beyond. Once you have been here you will tell yourself you have to come again

My friend who is GM of a highly regarded hotel in Siem Reap recommended a stay at Dickman Resort and with 3 days free I headed there in late April. He was right, this is a very grown up, delightful and relaxing place to recharge the batteries. The arranged car from the airport whisked me to Beach Road in Negumbo... More

We arrived here a night earlier then originally planned and it was the best decision we made.

I have just returned from yet another blissful stay at the Dickman Resort, my 12th visit since 2007. From the time that a driver picks you up at the airport for the 20 minute drive to the hotel until the end of the holiday nothing is spared to ensure the comfort of guests. The hotel is in the main tourist... More
