Virgin Holidays View
Linked by a walkway to Colombo’s World Trade Centre, this hotel is ideal for those who want to be right at the heart of the action! Beira Lake and the beach are also a short walk away for making the most of that steamy Sri Lankan sun. The fitness centre boasts top-of-the-range equipment, a sauna and a steam room, perfect for relaxing in after a busy day’s sightseeing. There’s also a 90-foot outdoor swimming pool for splashing about in as well as tennis, basketball and squash for the enthusiast. Very family-friendly, children can enjoy their own section of the pool and there’s a playground in which to meet and mingle with new-found friends. Award-winning cocktails and delicious exotic cuisine can be enjoyed in no less than 10 restaurants and bars. The open-air Curry Leaf Restaurant specialises in Fresh Seafood prepared to your liking and authentic Sri Lankan dishes whilst Szechuan cuisine can be sampled at the Emperor’s Wok. For a "stylishly casual"dining experience look no further than Spoons or relax in a cosy booth at the colonial-style Echelon Pub. For a light lunch of sushi or afternoon tea, Thorana Lounge is perfect. Come sundown, Stella Karaoke Bar is definitely the place to be, singing along to hits from the 60s, 70s and 80s until the early hours!
