Negombo Waterland Hotel – A unique stay with private pool in a tropical paradise
The Negombo Waterland Hotel is located in a rather unique place, a tropical oasis between coconut trees, the Hamilton canal and the Maha Oya river.
You will feel suddenly in a paradise with fragrant frangipani, flowering birds and the lovely cool breeze coming from the beach through the estuary
Tropical modern design, antiques, and regional artwork give each villa a warm unique character. A personal villa, private infinity-edge plunge pool, and extensive indoor and outdoor living space provide each guest with a sumptuous sanctuary. A team of English-speaking staff are dedicated to providing guests with sublime first and last experiences of Sri Lanka.
Overall an amazing place to chill out and relax, serving great food too, which is pretty special considering you will enjoy it at your private pool, even with a floating tray for a different experience.
