Used WBT as our final stay in Sri Lanka before our long flight back to the UK. Two perfect nights, the staff from our greeting were all so professional and so nice who treated my wife and I like royalty. Absolutely nothing was a problem. On our first night we were greeted with thunder and lighting along with serious rain so decided to stay put and eat in the open Dinning room. The food was first class and a good price, felt real cozy whilst watching the overhead weather. Negombo beach was not our cup of tea being a big open stretch with no close beach hut bars only the big hotels set further back. Good selection of restaurants along main road. Overall very happy to recommend to stay at WBT as everyone that worked here are lovely people ,special mention to Joe (great chat) and the boss man. Thank you for the shower room after a very early morning flight. Cheers guys

I stayed at Waves for a couple of nights at the end of my 3 week Sri Lanka trip as I wanted to relax a little more before returning to the cold Scottish winter. It was the perfect place to do that. A lovely pool, modern clean rooms with balconies and friendly and helpful staff make this place a great choice. It’s popular with all types of travellers, solo, couples and families too, with most of them moving on after a night or two, having spent their first Sri Lankan night in Negombo. Waves is close to the action at the north end of Negombo beach, close to lots of restaurants and a few bars. It has only been open for three months but is a very professional operation, and manager Joe and his team do a great job and helped give me the perfect end to a great trip.

We were looking for a hotel not too far from Colombo to crash for the night in order to recover from a long flight. The hotel is quite modern and only a short walk to the Main Street where the bars etc are. You do need a torch though as the side road it is on is not lit. We were met by the manager who offered us a drink whilst we checked in. Bizarrely there is no real reception area! The room was a decent size but not particularly clean. The shower was Luke warm and not very powerful. Breakfast was minimal, and as one previous reviewer stated, the service was hit and miss. It was as if the hotel had just been opened and staff weren’t sure what to do. Considering how tired we were you’d have thought it would have been easy to get a good nights sleep. The beds were comfortable enough but the couple in the room next to us decided to have their music on and although they did turn it down after 10 mins or so you could still hear it. Can only assume the walls must be thin as you could literally hear everything. Not sure how it would work should you want to report anything to reception as there wasn’t really one. Although it served a purpose, so glad we only stayed here the one night. They do have a safe in the room but you have to pay for it!

We booked this last minute and couldn’t have been happier. Set back from main road so quiet, but only a 2 minute walk from beach. Plenty of places to eat and drink but we ate at the hotel. There is an a la carte menu with great selection but we were offered a tailor made curry which was just perfect. We received a warm welcome from Joe the manager who did his utmost to make our stay memorable. And it was. Room small but perfectly formed and nice balcony with chairs to sit out on. Nice pool too. Excellent value for money and would definitely stay there again. Thnaks for a wonderful time.

Unfortunately we spend here only one night but we have been spoiled so much like we were super vips. We can’t thank the staff of the Waves by Tranquil enough for everything they’ve done for us and our daughter. Great job guys! We will highly recommend you to everyone.
