Absolutly Awful
The hotel is NOT a public hotel but a " BIG - BIG " party organizer, for real huge weddings and sociability. This is not only in a specific time/months of the year BUT more or less - the full year around). As a guest at the hotel you feel like you are relatively un-interesting and the staff whatever department - have not any time or possibility to follow you up as a normal hotel-guest.

Menu options
Wish they had more gluten free options but was impressed when I wrote on the breakfast card 'no bread gluten free' the room service department called me to confirm what I would like.

Good suprise
Was visiting Sri Lanka for visa application purposes. Location was perfect for this, breakfast & sky bar staff not as enthusiastic as the rest of the teams. Pity, as the pool service, housekeeping, team in the executive lounge were delightful. Will recommend and prob come back. Thank you
