Waterland is a magnificently situated private estate in a quiet corner of Negombo with 4 villas and 1 luxury suite.

Cross a picturesque white bridge, pass through the entry gates, and enter a tropical oasis of palm trees, flowering birds of paradise, and ornamental ginger.

Great for a quiet low key relaxing transition to Sir Lanka after your flight.

A lovely place for relaxing. The staff was friendly and attentive. Great breakfast. We were only there for one night and did not take advantage of many of the services they had to offer. Extra service prices were high compared to typical Sri Lankan prices.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We're glad that you enjoy your stay, that you found it a lovely place for relaxing, and that you found the staff friendly and attentive. Our cooking staff and I have worked hard to ensure that we offer a premium dining experience. It's great to hear that the breakfast was great. Thanks too for noting the many extra services we offer. Thanks too for pointing out that the cost of many of those services are higher than what they would pay in a homestay situation. It's important for guests to understand that Waterland offers massages and meals on par with those of a luxury hotel. Waterland is not for everyone and your comments help underscore that Waterland is not well-suited for budget travelers. We look forward to your return.

Thank you, Jo, for staying at Waterland and for taking the time to write a review. We're delighted to hear that everything was very clean, that the massage was very good, and that the breakfast was great. It's also lovely to hear that the staff were great and that "nothing was too much trouble." We're sorry that you encountered those problems with your tooth. That cannot have been pleasant. We hope you will return to Waterland. Hopefully, the next visit will not be marred with tooth problems!
