Although, it was a relatively short stay, we had a super experience. The staff were simply awesome going that extra mile to meet individual requirements including the executive chef who was gracious enough to turn out a breakfast catering to special dietary needs. They have an ‘outsourced’ travel company which also arranged for meet and pick up from airport which was well in accordance with covid 19 protocols. Well recommended - it s a part of the Accor chain of Hotels

Wanted to try something from Movenpick since I have never ordered any food from the said hotel since the lockdown . Hence I thought of ordering the banana caramel cake since the picture on their web site looked delicious. Unfortunately layers of banana cake was not soft & was heavy with caramel icing. The caramel glaze on the cake was rubbery and tasted artificial. Frankly speaking, I did not like the cake since it tasted like any other cake which was available at any supermarket! However I wanted to try the fresh fruit cream cake since it looked appealing. I must admit that it was one of the best fruit cakes I have tasted. Very much enjoyed the cake! Layers of soft vanilla sponge oozing with soft cream met my expectations. It was topped with fresh fruits in addition to the fruits in the layers. One notable flaw was the absence of dragonfruit although the cake displayed in their web consisted of the same. However it was better than the banana cake. Hence if I am to order again, I would go for the fruit cake! Delivery was swift, on time & professional!

Dear lankafoodcritique, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. First - we do apologize if the banana caramel cake did not meet your expectations. We have shared this feedback with our Pastry Chef and the team so that they can look into this matter. On a separate note - we are delighted you enjoyed the Fruit Cake - occasionally we do have to substitute some fruits as it varies during each season but we try our level best to maintain the quality overall. Thank you once again and we certainly hope you order via Gourmet in the future.

Had an amazing service experience! All the service staff is very supportive and welcoming to any of my needs during my stay. I'd like to give a special thanks to Amal and Thimira for their impeccable support during most of my time at the rooftop using the pool, bar and jacuzzi facilities. It was an absolute pleasure! Looking forward to come to Movenpick more often during the year ahead to recieve the same excellent heartwarming service.

Movenpick Hotel Colombo was an easy choice for our mandatory quarantine for 14 days. The reservation process was easy and the team was excellent in replying to all our questions and promptly guided us with the right requirements. The first impression of the hotel start with their sales and reservations team and Mithisha and Thilana was helpful and professional. Our designated taxi met us at the arrival lounge and guided us to the vehicle. At check-in all the necessary safety precautions was done where the elevators were assigned to certain floors. Lobby manager Tharun was always helpful. Madhuka in reception organized all things needed and the Kitchen team nd Chef Manula made great food options. The variety and choice was always available. The culinary team even made baby food for my child on request. Nishadi, Kalindu, Harsha and Rohitha was looking after in room dining and they were fantastic. Always repeated our orders and made sure everything was perfect. Chami and Asha in front office was a delight to talk to always. Tuan from housekeeping is silent but did a great job always. Thank you very much for keeping our room clean. I would highly recommend Hotel Movenpick as there is an infinity pool on the rooftop and a Gym that can be used following social distancing riles and safety precautions. The staff mentioned above makes a world of difference and they are doing this with confidence, patience and treu Sri Lankan hospitality. With the current times Hotel Movenpick would stand out as a safe haven out of all Colombo hotels.

My quarantine stay at Movenpick was incredible. Firstly the amenities in the hotel were really great and the room was up to international standards. Secondly, the food was delicious~ the variety in the set menu provided made it almost impossible to get bored or complain about the food. They were open to making slight changes depending on your liking which was really helpful and the desserts were noteworthy. Finally, what made the stay a great one was the extremely accommodating staff. To mention a few, Rohitha, Kalindu, Hannas, Ishara, Sachin, and the rest of the room service and kitchen staff made sure we got our meals on time. Furthermore, the front desk staff (specially Maduka) were extremely helpful in any matter I had and regularly checked whether I was comfortable. The cleaning staff would come by my room every day to clean the room + check to see if any additional items were needed. In terms of keeping up with COVID standards, the PCR tests were done promptly without a hitch and there was a doctor that came in weekly to check in about our well-being. Would overall recommend anyone to stay in Movenpick as I had a lovely stay
