  • About this holiday

    On the beachfront in Negombo, the Heritance Negombo is perfectly situated to enjoy both sides of this intriguing city. Spend a day or two beside the pool soaking up the sun, and gliding through the refreshing water under the palm trees, before heading out into the streets, and uncovering the beautiful religious monuments, colonial architecture, and charming traditions that Negombo has to offer. Use this stunning hotel to recuperate after a busy touring holiday in Sri Lanka, or to whet your appetite right at the beginning.

    Our opinion

    Heritance Negombo is a tranquil, modern hotel with guestrooms that are all graced with enchanting ocean views and excellent access to both Negombo and Sri Lanka’s main airport.

    Hotel description

    The Heritance Negombo, in one of Sri Lanka’s biggest cities, offers spacious, modern accommodation, gourmet cuisine, and a convenient location for both relaxing on the beach and exploring the cultural sites of Negombo. The main public spaces inside are dominated by large windows that flood the rooms with light and interesting architectural features, such as cone-shaped pillars rising out of the spiral staircase, which give the contemporary rooms character and seem to create a peacefully serene atmosphere. The guestrooms are unique and sophisticated, with bold bursts of blue, turquoise, green, and yellow that establish a tropical colour scheme. Textured headboards and an abundance of soft, light wood add to their natural, organic feel. There is a playfulness about the colours and the shape of the rooms, even in the much grander Presidential Suite. Outside, a free-form swimming pool, inspired by the Sri Lankan lagoons, is surrounded by palm trees. Looking back from the beach, this seems to be a mirage: totally idyllic, with refreshing water, and soft grass to lounge on. Hours can be spent here enjoying the warmth of the sun and taking in the views before you head out to explore the city. Within the hotel there are two main dining options: Blue Tan, which serves a vibrant banquet of Sri Lankan and international food, and the Big Fish Restaurant, which is due to open in the winter of 2016. Big Fish will specialise in fish that has been caught that very same day, seasoned with regional spices, and dished up amidst a coconut grove. Across the road, the hotel-owned Banyan square is populated by bars selling delicious and authentic tapas, bodegas open for wine-tasting experiences, and a Swiss Bakery and Café sells fresh pastries. Before moving on with your Sri Lankan tour to an inland boutique hotel or villa, make time to rejuvenate your senses in the blissful spa. Situated on the hotel rooftop, there is no more rewarding sense of seclusion and peace; bubbling hot tubs look out across the sea, and treatments derived from centuries-old tradition meet views across the sprawling city below. Heritance Negombo is a city hotel, perfect for a few days of urban interest, that still captures all the tranquillity of the smaller, more personal Sri Lankan hotels. Perhaps end your Sri Lankan touring holiday here, so close to the airport, to sample the livelier side to this traditional island before returning home.

    Out and aboutnearby/local interest

    To make the most of your time in Negombo, be sure to spend at least one afternoon in the city itself. Take a trip down the Dutch Canal to experience first hand an important part of the city’s culture and to get a sweeping view of many of the buildings. Perhaps also visit the impressive St Mary’s Church, which has a strikingly European architectural style. The natural landscape can be appreciated at the Muthurajawela Marsh and at Negombo Beach. You can scratch the surface of Sri Lankan architectural heritage by visiting one of the many small temples and monuments, including the Angurukaramulla Temple and the Abhayasekararama Temple. For an insight into the city’s colonial history, visit the Dutch Clock Tower and the Dutch Fort. A self-guided tour may be the most rewarding way of seeing the city, following whichever streets takes your fancy, and stopping off wherever catches your eye. The Main Fish Market is vast and sprawling, and makes an excellent way to experience the Sri Lankan way of life.
