4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A nice hotel, designed with a modernist flare. Well located on the Negombo coastline, close to some local restaurants and fishermen's residence. A perfect combination of both cosmopolitan and local experience. Great and beautiful swimming pool! Breakfast on the seashore dining room is excellent. However, Wi-fi is available in the open-air lobby only!

It was very expensive when we stayed there in January 2015, must be high season. Overpriced for the amenities. That said, it has an awesome beach setting, a good swimming pool for laps, and an excellent breakfast with delicious Sri Lankan curries, fruit and Western foods. We had two wonderful massages at the spa, highly skilled masseuses.

Nicely decorated room, great view over the beach, very nice pool, quite good dinner and breakfast buffet with a huge choice - and dinner cuisine theme changes every night (we had Sri Lankan, but they also do Italian, Mongolian etc). Nice beach area where you can swim.

Close to the airport and close to the sea makes it a perfect start or end to your vacation. Nice clean rooms. We eat Christmas dinner and it was one of the most beautiful i have ever seen, with a lot to chose between.

We stayed 2 nights location is perfect overlooking the beach. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great place to relax, swim, laze, dream and read! Our suite was nice enough a bit tired but spacious and clean and all gadgets working. Only shame is smoking is allowed in rooms.

Hotel staff is friendly. Reception was good. Rooms are clean and spacey. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice. When I ordered a burger at lunch i waited half an hour. Wifi was very bad. Almost none. Swimmingpool was nice.

We booked on line and the hotel first refused to give the quoted on line rate, and then gave us not an ocean view room, but one with mold and damp all over the walls. The staff were surly, and unhelpful. It was shocking.

Beautiful location on the beach and is considerably clean. However I am a female solo traveller and encountered some behaviour towards me by the staff that made me uncomfortable at times. As a constant traveller I am use to this but was not expecting it from such a westernised hotel location. Room was nice for an average two bed room... More
