Srilankan Air Lines Transit hotel, our flight got cancelled, airline paid for our stay. Dinner buffet was pretty good with singer singing local songs in front of your table. Located in a business area, where you can buy teas, little gifts local fruits... close to the beach with nice view! Good hotel!

Had an overnight layover here and was booked in by Sri Lankan airlines. Hotel is a but run down, but fine as a layover. I was bitten by bedbugs as the room was infested. I was moved to a second room in the early hours of the morning and promptly fell asleep as I was totally exhausted from travel. The... More

We were booked here by Sri Lankan airlines after they delayed our flight for a day. It's about half an hour from the airport and 45-minutes from Colombo (if you take the highway). The staff was very helpful when I left my instrument in the transport van and then again the next day when we wanted to arrange a driver... More

Beautiful location, close to the Airport. The hotel faces the ocean. This place seems to be a hot favourite for surfers. Saw many surfers there. Food is good. Rooms are cozy and relaxing. Nice clean bathroom. Over all a nice experience.

The resort is situated in a place which is about half an hour drive from Colombo Airport. One has to travel for around 3 hours to reach Colombo city center. The rooms were spacious and airy. There were hot and cold water available. The breakfast was a good spread consisting of an array of Asian fare. Food was tasty. Buffet... More

The advantage here is the proximity to the beach. Property is beautiful but quite simple. Rooms are pretty frugal. But it is air conditioned. TV has only only 13 channels with poor clarity. Sufficient for only occassional viewing, but your tine is again best spent at the beach. Beds were comfortable but not luxurious. Dining area was nice and pleasant.... More

I believe that the Catamaran is used by tour operators and airlines, such that you can't book independently, and if you're reading this, you've been booked there by someone else. We were placed there for a night at the start and end of a Lanka Sportreisen (via World Expeditions) cycling tour. With that in mind. the hotel has a warm... More

Though this is a transit hotel, i stayed thr for one day, the property is very beautiful, its just next to beach and sea was 200 mtr from my room, awesome view, food was great, considering us they prepared chapatis for us, though rooms are not that cozy but looking at location and service its an amazing place to be.
