We arrived early from our flight into Colombo, and were offered the use of a room and breakfast at the Catamaran Beach, before checking into our other hotel. Our room was at the far end closer to the swimming pool and beach. The room had a slight musty smell but this was due to the a/c. The shower was okay... More

Stayed for a couple of days here on a stop over to Europe. Wasn't expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised. While the resort is not new, the rooms are large and have airconditioning and the beachfront pool is great! Staff were very attentive. The beach out front is not quite pristine, but great for a walk and watching the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Catamaran hotel for two nights, and then a couple of weeks later, for three nights, and we both had a really great time! LSR hotels are always up to standards and this was definitely a satisfying stay. We had wifi, clean room and bathrooms, a comfy bed (and room) always made up to... More

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
