The best hotel in Sri Lanka

Perfection. We were en route to Australia and wanted a few days to kick back and break up the journey. Now we've travelled a great many times to Sri Lanka and have visited the usual haunts from Kandy, Unawatuna and Yala National park to Horton Plains, Sigiriya and beyond, but the ambience, quality of quietly attentive and unassuming care of the staff is unsurpassed. I would go as far as to compare staff training with that of Raffles, Singapore... yes they are that good! The staff are all brilliant at what they do, so much so that when we return to Sri Lanka in August we have decided to skip the city break, stay at The Heritance instead and do a day trip into Colombo if necessary. So... what do they do that deserves the perfect score of 10/10? Pickup from airport ready and waiting and that was in the middle of the night. Painfree, swift checkin which is always a bonus with cooling towels to revive. Room perfect, with private seating area close to pool access. Fridge is stocked with Lion, soft drinks and snacks with the first round free. (Thank you). Staff: gracious, kind and attentive (they're there, watching, waiting to preempt your every need but without you even realising it). We would like to thank each and everyone but I honestly can't remember all your names, so I'm sorry: but particularly thanks goes to the duty manager Lashan, the pool bar staff and their brilliant cocktails, Pradeep in the main restaurant, Suci in the spa who worked hard on my tense back, front of house guys who were always happy to help and assist with our queries (Gihan and Chirangg), the chefs, the lovely lady in the See Bar who always commented on how fragrant I smelled after my massages and the great security guys who patrol the grounds). The food: I was amazed at the variety: for those who travel from the ME... the Saturday brunch (although not Bubblicious) did compare in terms of variety and cooking stations. I've fallen in love with their tomato chilli jam, pineapple and thyme relish and coconut sambal. Traditional local curries, Asian twist, usual international snacks and a hint of Arabic too. All food is freshly made and with open kitchens on show there is no hiding. Pool: 1.4m throughout and there is a toddlers pool at the north end of the pool. Crystal clean. Sit up pool bar and the staff are attentive and friendly. There are plenty of lounges around the pool or facing the sea - perfect breeze blows off the sea. Vendors are kept at bay by a fence and security. Although if you want to shop in the beach especially if you've forgotten a sarong you can try out your bartering skills. Beach walking is always a plus and although the sea was a bit rough, locals were swimming one day we were there. MUST dos: Sunset at the See Bar with a Negombo Sunset in hand. Spa Ceylon: pampering Relax Go back!

Good location. friendly staff

Enjoyed a long weekend at Heritance. The hotel is nice and clean. Great location. Good food options within the hotel, and across the street. Rooms are a little dated... but are kept very clean and well maintained. The pool area is beautiful, clean and relaxing. The staff is great. Engaging and helpful. Particularly appreciated Sampath, Ramesh and Pradeepan in the front desk; and their duty manager, Lashan..The pool staff was also very attentive and responsive.
