I came to the hotel to see the work of Geoffrey Bawa (famed Sri Lankan architect) in person. It did not disappoint in any way at all. What a living work of art this hotel is.

I was not staying in the hotel, but when I noticed that there was a buffet lunch, I thought I would give it a try. I am sure that the price for the buffet is expensive to Sri Lankan standards, but for a foreigner it was quite reasonable - buffet and a beer for 3,030 Sri Lankan rupees (US$23.30). There was tremendous variety and every bite was delicious. The staff was extremely attentive.

Well if you have come here to see another great piece of Geoffrey Bawa architecture you will be so disappointed with the outdated renovation. Our room had over 5 different tacky tiles (all budget) no class/style. Not an architects dream.

Though I wanted to stay in Vivanta by Taj but I haven't regretted for staying at this hotel. Love the smell of spices in the lobby area, food was good, wifi works everywhere. Will not mind staying at this hotel again. We had a wonderful trip of Srilanka.

Excellent location in between the river and ocean. Especially enjoyed the beach and lovely well tended gardens. The hotel is showing its age and a little tired; could do with maintenance and updating in many areas. Very pleasant and friendly staff. Buffet food was good and varied.

We travelled to Sri Lanka from 5th of Nov to 10th of Nov and stayed in this hotel for 2 days. I regret the decision of not staying here longer since this hotel deserves it! After having travelled for 2.5 hours from Airport, the hotel made us feel so relaxed and rejuvenated with its ambience and decor, was out of the world!
The place has been tastefully decorated and has a nice peaceful calmness to it. The rooms provided were nice and airy and were facing the lagoon/ river.
Buffet had a nice variety and the service and almost always very prompt.
I recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a good relaxing time on their holiday!
