Lattice Captan Harsha is doing an excellent service to all his clients. I am fully satisfied with his kind approach to me with a smile. I feel that he is fully devoted to his job. I highly recommend his service to my friends.

This hotel is in a good location, and from the minute you pull up, you are made to feel like a special guest. The lobby itself is a grand affair, and everyone was friendly and welcoming. Check in, too, was very quick and easy. There seemed to be a number of high level events and conference taking place during my...

It is very good hotel, the staff is very good, very caring and helpful. The location is superb. Right from my room, I could see the sea and enjoy. Very palatial look. We organized a seminar and the banquet and other people and staff lend a helping hand, which is really appreciated.

Ofcourse, ask for an ocean view, because that's what you're there for after all, right? My room on the 2nd floor was quite decent, had all the basic amenities. Breakfast was rather good, and the room service dinner was very good (but do be careful when you agree to spicy Sri Lankan food, as they can get VERY spicy!) There's...
