This hotel was the only luxury hotel near Mirigama Industrial Area. Generally, all visitors and clients go back to Colombo (2 hour ride) but I chose to try this new hotel near by and it wowed me with its service.
The manager impressed us with his attention during the check in process. We were made comfortable in the lobby and provided with a cool welcome drink and a refreshing wet towel. The wet tower feels heavenly in Sri Lankas humid atmosphere. The staff were always attentive and eager to impress the guests with their service.
The huge lobby gave way to restaurant area which was overlooking the pool. The rooms were on the otherside of the manicured gardens. The property is still developing and there was some construction going on in the back side. My room was on the first floor overlooking the artificial lake. The room was spacious and so was the bathroom (with plenty of utilities and toiletries). The king sized bed made it a joy to laze around.
The swimming pool was refreshing after a long humid day. The water was surprisingly warm (even without any visible heaters). The restaurant and bar setting overlooking the pool looked quite regal in the evening lights. On a flip side, when I tried to use the steam facilities, there was a electrical failure. Also the changing rooms near the pool were quite small. However, these are small issues in an otherwise wonderfully maintained and landscaped property.
At 70$ a night (breakfast included) it was totally worth the money spent. Overall I was pleasantly surprised to find such professional service and treatment outside the main Colombo city.
