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.

The third hotel we stayed on during our trip. The rooms and the grounds were ok, but the outside area were epic. Fantastic pool bar and a very nice breakfast. Fantastic beach, and an epic sunset every night.

Service of the staff was simply amazing. From FO to HK to F&B to Security, all were very friendly, helpful and approachable. Vignesha and the team from HK, Pradeep and the team from F&B, Shalindra and the rest of the team of FO were amazing. And how can I forget about DM Asela, other DMs who always great and check on us as well as the FOM. Great place for the vacation. Will definitely come back. Read less
