We stayed here for one night. The staff were fantastic and so welcoming at 2 am!!!! The rooms are well equipped and immaculate. We loved the approach with fish in walkways . The breakfast was of the highest standard with a great selection of cuisine to suit all nationalities . The pool looked lovely but didn't have time

We visited the hotel last week, and were surprised to see that we were given a room upgrade to a suite which the kids loved. The room service was good and the food was very tasty which we enjoyed. Overall everything was very good, and looking forward to visit the hotel again to enjoy the pool and to relax.

Excellent service and experience. Modern looking hotel with very efficient reception. Spacious rooms. Breakfast best in Sri Lanka looking out onto lovely pool, Would have gladly stayed much longer. Room service food edible but not outstanding.

We arrived at 2am and were upgraded to a large suite - without asking and it was amazing. The service and the staff were delightful. Nothing was too much trouble and all so happy and helpful. Food was great. Would really recommend this hotel as it is close to the airport.

The ala carte food is great and very reasonable. The Indian choices are my favourite and I always choose them when I stay here. I did not stay for breakfast as my... More

We stayed at this hotel with friends for 3 night. Staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms are clean and spacious. WIFI is slow. Food in restaurant could be better and more variety. Definitely not international but price is ok. Overall a good experience. Not much to do around surrounding area. Pool is nice and relaxing. Spa is very good
