After a terrible experience in Kolkata I flew over to Colombo and have really enjoyed this hotel.
As regular guestrooms seemed to be fully booked, I got myself a deluxe suite for about 170 USD per night, including breakfast. Do not book internet acces additionally as it seems to be free all over the hotel.
The room is extremely big, other suites I've booked were never this large. Everything is clean, nothing looks worn - good impression overall. I even includes a kitchen which is a bit overkill, but after all this is Colombo RESIDENCE.
Service is good - Sri-Lankans living up to their name of people with a constant smile. They'll happily do whatever you ask them to.
A big plus is the pool - it's big, clean and with plenty of place to relax. The gym is a bit limited for this size of a hotel, but still..it's a gym. The Spa is not the newest I've seen, but the sauna is huge and I couldn't notice anything dirty or broken.
Breakfast is excellent - good set of choice between traditional and western style breakfast. Definately recommend.
Looking for excellent value for money, this is a highly recommend place to go to!
