Waterland is a magnificently situated private estate in a quiet corner of Negombo with 4 villas and 1 luxury suite.
We have a full-time staff of 10.
Peacock villa was an outstanding place. The calm and serenity is what we needed and loved the most. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The spacious rooms and sitting areas were extremely comfortable. However, the included breakfast could have had more variety.
Thanks very much for staying and for taking the time to review your stay. We're delighted you had such a good stay, found the place outstanding, and were pleased by the spaciousness, the sitting rooms, the comfort, and the staff. Thanks for the feedback about the breakfast. Almost all our guests are from abroad so the menu - including the breakfasts - have been geared for a foreign palate. This arrangement works well for most of our guests who speak lovingly about the cuisine. We offer a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast with all its variety for guests who want it, but because of the complexity of the preparation, we ask that the Sri Lankan breakfast be ordered the day before. On your next visit, let us know what you would like for breakfast and we will try to arrange that.
Waterland is stunning and an incredible value. It’s a beautiful location away from the beach but settled on a beautiful lagoon surrounded by jungle. The villas are amazing with huge comfortable beds, rainfall showers, and personal plunge pools. The hospitality is also wonderful w…
Thank you very much for the lovely review and its richness of description and feeling. We're glad to hear that you found the villas comfortable, the food delicious, and the hospitality wonderful. Thanks too for noting Waterland's proximity to the airport, its convenience for the start and end of a Sri Lankan holiday, and its incredible value. We look forward to welcoming you back on your next trip to Sri Lanka.
