You would love the Sri lankan and South Indian food on the menu. My favorite is Jaffna curries combined with Sri lankan food. You should try any Jaffna spicy curry( sea food, mutton etc) with Sri lankan appa( Hoppers) ( unique to Sri Lankan and and appam in Kerala. ) Not to mention the Arrack ((cobra cocktail to compliment the...

Nice staff, nice and clean rooms, amazing rooftop poolbar with chill- atmosphere. We stayed there for our honneymoon-trip and really enjoyed it!! In comparison the price is a little bit high but worth it!

The hotel had very friendly staff. ITs quite well situated, though I wonder why its not sea facing, when it could have been, as the sea is only a block behind the hotel. The food at the hotel restuarant Palmyra was ok, the bufett breakfast was OK too.

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.
