Memorable Stay
This chain has it figured-out! Their attention to detail and attentive staff make guests’ visits truly an excellent experience. The facilities are impressive and there is always something going on. Our stay was as lovely as the last time we stayed in Shangri-la of Guilin. The buffet in Colombo was outstanding with a view overlooking the Indian Ocean. We had the pleasure of having dinner in the Capital Bar & Grill. Alex and his staff to very good care of us and their signature drinks are a must. We look forward to visiting again. OsborneAdventures

New hotel on the Galle Face. Delivers as you’d expect. We had a great stay, a good place to base yourself if you want to be able to walk down the Galle Face, have a drink etc.

10/10 Experience
The hotel service was excellent, one of the best experiences I've had. Room service was quick and the front desk staff are always willing to offer assistance. Rooms are very comfortable. The bathrooms have good showers and more luxurious toiletries. The bed is very comfortable. The bars and restaurants inside are lovely, and the breakfast buffet has many options. My friends got massages at the hotel and said they were wonderful, too. Overall, a 10/10 experience. Highly recommended.
