Trip advisor rating: 4.5 Based on 1270 reviews

The hotel

A barefoot stroll from the Indian Ocean, a lagoon pool curves along the lawn leading down to Negombo’s sands. It gives a view that is tirelessly intoxicating – which is why the team at Heritance Negombo also made sure you can see it from almost every guestroom, from the penthouse spa, and from their aptly named ‘See Lounge’ – whose rooftop residence guarantees spectacular sunset views. The perfect pairing for trips to Sri Lanka’s Cultural Triangle, or for those simply after a beach holiday in a style-conscious hangout, this swanky hotel is also well-placed for experiencing the buzz of Negombo, with nearby bars and restaurants giving ample alternatives to the international ‘feasts’ of Heritance’s Bluetan restaurant and the swim-up drinks of its B-Bums pool bar.

We used the hotel for our first night in Sri Lanka and it was a good choice. Everything was clean and the service could not be better. The breakfirst was excellent. In the room snacks and drinks are for free which makes live easy when you just arrive.

This fairly new and modern hotel is close to the airport and located right on the beach. It's a full service hotel that can be a bit pricey, however everything is done very well and professionally. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The pool and grounds are immaculately maintained, and very scenic. I'd stay… Read more

Very nice, clean and well appointed modern rooms. Free snacks and drinks (including beer) on your first time through the mini fridge. Wonderful view from the balcony across the sea and the clean stretch of beach. Brilliant restaurants in the hotel, including the fantastically chilled Sea Lounge, and across the road. The buffet dinner is a must! Only negative, and I am not sure if anyone can do anything about this, is the people trying to sell you things on the beach, over the fence and waiting around the gate to the beach. I obviously don't mind people trying to sell things but when they are loitering around the gate to the beach and shouting at you when you are laid by the pool it does spoil the relaxing atmosphere and puts you off walking on the beach. We did not see this kind of selling anywhere else in Sri Lanka. Read less

I love this hotel just because of the rooms and the way you feel one with the ocean just because the view is so amazing. The food is great, and the location of Negombo is very interesting. The beach itself is not Sri Lanka's best, but the room makes up for it
