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

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.

This is an excellently managed resort with charming and helpful staff situated in the heart of Negombo, a short stroll from the main restaurants, shops and beach. Tucked in a quiet back street, the resort offers an excellent breakfast, colourfully decorated rooms with all facilities, AC, ceiling fan, tea and coffee, bar fridge, and airport pick up and drop off...

As a seasoned traveller I can honestly say this is one of the best hotels I have ever been to. Hotel is probably the wrong description as Dickmans Resort is more like a place of calm and a great place to relax. The hotel is a stunning piece of architecture and modern facilities blend brilliantly with outstanding Sri Lankan interior... More
