My experience to this hotel is only limited to dining as I could not get free rooms during my stay. We had bought a dinner package in this hotel and I enjoyed every visit to the restaurant. The food quality, choice and selection were impressive.

Taj is twenty years old and a little rough around the edges but don't let this put you off. The staff are charming and the food is good. Don't go half or full board unless you are a glutton. It's far cheaper to pay as you go. The only criticism is the very poor surface on the tennis courts and...

This hotel has a large and extremely impressive foyer evidently designed to suggest opulence and luxury. The check-in staff were models of quiet efficiency and dealt with our arrival in a thoroughly professional manner. My room, which was on the ground floor and at the extreme northern end of the hotel, was considerably smaller than I had been expecting given...

We arrived at the Vivanta after an excellent 9 day tour of Sri Lanka. First impressions are impressive and it didn't disappoint. The hotel is well positioned on a long stunning sandy beach. It is spotlessly clean and very well maintained. We had paid extra for a sea view and this was good from the 5th floor. There is however...

We were very lucky to have one of the newly refurbished rooms. Also to have a terrace from which we could walk straight into the garden and a few short steps to the beach. This was a basic grade garden room so didn't pay unnecessarily for a seaview room. (All rooms face the sea anyway.) Food is excellent. We were...
