The best way to survive Colombo's notoriously fickle weather is to stay at a place like the Renuka where you can lie by the pool when it is sunny and go sight-seeing when it isn't. It is a bit like the 'Crystal Maze' finding the pool with multiple lifts and several corridors & foot-bridges needed to be navigated before you...

Stayed here many times before. Hot water lasts very briefly. Same problem previously. Before you know it, you are having a cold shower. Told them before to fix it. It's the same. For the price you pay, there are better hotels. Restaurant has excellent Jaffna food but the Western food is not great at all. Rooms are okay. Nothing superb.

Our room was modern, nice and clean with a good bathroom, and cot as requested. The bar area and infinity pools on the roof are lovely with sea views, with one really...

The room was ok, but on the road so quite noisy. Also bathroom wasn't very clean, obviously had been wiped down but had some mould issues.Pool on the roof was nice and gym was good too - small but it had everything you need.

After a series of guesthouses, it was lovely to end our stay here. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff were lovely. We spent a lot of time at the beautiful infinity pool overlooking the ocean. Also, unlike almost everywhere else, the wifi was fast and very reliable.
