We chose this hotel partly because of the good reviews of other travellers. We can confirm that for us it provided very good value for money in terms of both comfort and amenities, with excellent staff service. The hotel is not in the same league, understandably, as hotels costing say twice as much, but nor would you expect this. Negombo... More

We stayed here three nights after arrival and two nights before leaving Sri Lanka. Resort is a big name, with 6 or 7 rooms it is more a well priced boutique hotel. (but we know a place with 20 rooms in Negombo thats named "Village"). Central pool, colourfull rooms around it and good breakfast and snacks. Enough good restaurants within... More

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

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