Place for adventure

Centara hotel is nicely situated in the middle of the river and you have to get a boat to ride to the hotel. This boat service is provided by the hotel itself. The place is lovely and we went on a day out and they gave us a lovely room to stay in. The pool and beach is a beauty but the lunch buffet was not that much great. Appetizer and the salads were yummy and good, so we had high expectations on the main course, but look to see there's no much varieties at all. No sea food, no ham or sausages, it's an ordinary main meal. That's the only reason why i gave a four start rating However, if your going to centara its a must to try one of the water sport centre in that road! They have plenty of good centres who conduct water sports and if your adventure seeking, this is the place. We tried "diyakawa water sports centre" and they had good sports for worthy price.

A true sample of excellent hospitality!

Without doubt one of the best hotels I stayed in Sri Lanka! Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by the staff ( travelling in the boat to the hotel was a nice experience) & since we were travelling as a group the hotel was flexible enough to accommodate rooms ( before the official check in ) for more than half of our group ( since most had children it was a great help) the staff was extremely friendly, must give a special thanks to Mr Sanjeewa Dimuthu Kumara ( Asst.Exe.Housekeeping) as he was the one from the day one which we were planning the trip coordinating with us to make sure that every detail is as per our requirement and also must thank Mr Tharanga Wimalarathna ( Front Office Manager) for the assistance to get the check in' s without a big hassle. We had planned a gathering & from the assistance from sanjeewa we were able to get the 360 restaurant of the hotel & it was simply awesome & we all had a great evening there and the restaurant was very flexible ( appreciate this!)and the restaurant supervisors deserve a special thanks, which obviously also added to the experience.Food was good and since we were a group normally you would not get good feedback for the food & lodging.but I'm happy to say it's all thumbs up here.eventhough this is a 5 star hotel to my surprise the atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to me.All respect for the general manager who does a great job here; A true sample of excellent Sri Lankan hospitality. Thank you & looking forward to revisiting Rasika Jayawardene on behalf of Team Trade services of Nations Trust Bank Plc
