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.

What a pleasant stay at this beautiful holiday. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff was extremely helpful, especially a young lady by the name of Manisha who went out of her way for us. I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who visits Negombo.

Beautiful lobby and rooms, poolside and gym, restaurants, especially the ones belonging opposite the road in a very athmospheric courtyard. Great service on all sides, impeccably especially by Mr.Lashan at reception. Best efforts of a hotel of its category in Negombo. albeit some room furnishings start to tire.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights in November to start our journey around Sri Lanka. We could not have asked for a better experience. We arrived early for check in and all staff did their utmost to accommodate us, with tea and coffee seated out on the stunning balcony’s with a sea view, they allowed us to have breakfast despite our room not yet being ready and also allowed us to check in early with an added premium upgrade. From the front door staff to the security guards, every single member of staff in this establishment was exceptionally welcoming and so friendly we felt sad to leave. The general manager, Lashan, and front of house staff, Nabeel were both exceptional assets to this stunning hotel. They both did all they could to help us and make our stay fantastic and with a genuine smile. The staff in the Italian restaurant, Mad Dog are also fantastic. This hotel does not disappoint. The rooms are clean, spacious and well looked after, as are the grounds and pool area. The food is delicious and varied, especially the buffet breakfast. If you are looking for a relaxing, poolside/beach holiday this is definitely the place enjoy. We also used the tourist service across the road who took us on a boat ride over the Lagoon where we enjoyed fresh fruit, drank out of coconuts and fed the monkeys. The hotel are more than happy to recommend local activities to enjoy and tips and tricks for getting around. Read less

Beautiful hotel to unwind and relax after arriving from a flight or before getting on one. Only a short drive to Colombo international airport! Great buffet breakfast!! Staff were absolutely beautiful people, when we arrived we were greeted so lovely by each staff member. Also, beautiful pool. The only thing I would say and this isn’t the hotel at all- people told us the beach in Negombo was beautiful and swimmable however the beach that the hotel sits on we didn’t find swimmable at all.
