Heritance Negombo

Sri Lanka, Indian Ocean

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 stayed here for 2 nights at the start of our trip and it was outstanding. The room was spotless, food was delicious and the pool was beautiful. The staff were particularly wonderful, especially Lawrence (with the great glasses!). Nothing was too much trouble. We also had a fantastic driver from the airport. Highly recommend staying here!

We stayed at this hotel at the end of our holiday in Sri Lanka for four days. We emailed the hotel from Tangalle as the Easter Sunday bombings had just taken place and we were travelling up on the Tuesday after and we wanted to make sure they were still accepting guests they promptly emailed us back to advice us they were taken their guest security very seriously and we were more than welcome. They were right wonderful hotel amazing room fabulous food and the staff were amazing also considering what Sri Lanka had just been through the hotel was more than helpful yes there was a curfew in place but you didnt need to leave the hotel.

We were very pleasantly surprised when staying two nights before leaving Sri Lanka. Everything exceeded our expectations. Our room was comfortable, large and very clean with a nice balcony.

We were very pleasantly surprised when staying two nights before leaving Sri Lanka. Everything exceeded our expectations. Our room was comfortable, large and very clean with a nice balcony. Service was excellent. Nice garden with a big pool and a clean beach. We had read comments about the crows making it impossible to swim but this was really no problem at all. And most surprising: the food at the hotel was really good. We would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. The only negative is the noise from the corridor which means you wake up when people depart for early flights or arrive late. Read less
