Beautiful Resort Hotel

Greater London, United Kingdom

We stayed here at the end of our travels around Sri Lanka, it could not have been a better way to end. Taj is known for it's 5* Hotels, and this hotel was no different. The hotel itself was beautiful. The common areas are spacious, inviting and clean. There are numerous restaurants to dine in, and a couple of bars to relax in of an evening. The pool is not the biggest, but big enough and never felt crowded. It was clean and heated. The rooms seem to be recently renovated and to a nice standard. It wasn't the largest of nicest rooms of all the hotels we visited in Sri Lanka, but still pleasant and clean. And with a hotel so beautiful, there was no reason to be staying in the room all day. The staff are the real testament to this hotel. All staff from reception, to dining and around the pool were all friendly and northing was too much trouble. One member of staff in particular was Viraj Choudry. Whilst waiting to check in, he approached us and provided a direct number of his. Anything we needed, we could call. He certainly made the stay perfect, just by his pleasant talks whenever he saw us, to the special dining arrangements he made for us. I hope the hotel do recognise what an asset they have in him. We never left the hotel, and so cannot comment much on location. The hotel itself is right by the beach. the beach itself was public beach and so there were no sunbeds or amenities on the beach, this has not had a negative impact on the beach at all. The water was pleasant, the sand was soft and the entire area was clean. If I was to return to Sri Lanka, I would certainly end my trip here again in the exact same way.
