sleep well, quite, with amazing swing pool.. The first impression is expensive. But the lobby was ver good. And, then if the room is facing to see, then couldn't be better than this. Hotel car was good as well but charge is not very high.

Luxury hotel in the midst of an ordinary city. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The room was well appointed and very quiet and comfortable. The ambience of the hotel was great. Perfect location close to the few attractions in Colombo and close to some great restaurants. The hotel dining was great.

Great ambience, good rooms, friendly staff and responsive. Stayed for more than 2 weeks there in Feb 17. The restaurants and food are awesome. Great service by Ruwan and Juan. Dayalan, the breakfast chef makes wonderful south Indian dishes and meets everybody to make these better. Maybe can make service better by managing small things - booking to smoking rooms...

Sea View from the Room, excellent service, beautiful morning breakfast, free drop to the place of your interest, good for couples, family, Honeymoon, but every thing comes at a price, not a budget hotel.
