Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

It's a a great come back by the hotel establishment after the pandemic crisis. They do take security and hygiene very seriously with daily temp checks to sanitising the luggage.

The room was extremely spacious, as a matter of fact it was too spacious that I was so bored to use the washroom. The termostat could have beef close to the bed and I had to wake up in the night and walk all the way close to the door to operate the temp. The room itself was pristine and the wash room including the shower was well presented. I had no worry of water dripping out of the shower. Since there was a temporary unavailability of the hotel WiFi, I was provided with a 4G router and it was suffice. I request all future guest to not to abuse the internet privilege.
However there were not much channels on the cable TV but this okay with me as I just turned into Starworld and StarMovies most of the time.
The hotel garden is a nice place to take a stroll in the morning or evening, there are 2 different restaurant and take it when I say, the food quality and taste is something to die for... I'd rate 3 out of 5 and the only downfall was the portion was not equivalent to the price tag, if this can be resolved then it's a thumbs up from me.

The staff were pretty courteous and helpful.
I'd suggest if you want a nice cosy place to stay then this is it.. just be aware that talking a walkthrough the hotel neighbourhood is pretty shaky as there are alot of muggers and weirdos.

Great outdoors but the guests are prohibited from taking a dip in the sea, maybe it's cause it's dangerous as the breakwater is pretty close and the beach is full of garbage and sharp tree debris.

Getting a taxi after 7pm is very hard.....

My whole family, me, wife and three kids went on a weekend getaway to this beautiful hotel on 27th and 28th June, which incidentally was our honeymoon hotel 24 years back. I have visited for weddings and other events many times but this was the first time we stayed in two of the new wing rooms. Rooms were spacious and neatly furnished with all luxury amenities, service staff were courteous and adhering to strict Covid19 protocols, Had some tasty club sandwiches in room and they were a delight.
We had three meals and i should say they were all worth sumptuous and delicious, mostly worth the package, I loved the Roasted pork glazed with honey, and the beef steaks, also the local pork, and fish dishes were a treat.
My wife and kids enjoyed a perfect stay. a big thumps up for the front desk staff who were very efficient in our check in check out again with strict "no contact" protocols. Big thank you to Mr. Athula for ensuring our stay was comfortable and enjoyable.

I visited Pegasus Reef Hotel as we had a 3 days residential programme there.

The hospitality is very well appreciated, staff are very polite and helpful.
Interior and exterior is very well designed that you feel comfortable and welcoming. They have a outdoor area which is huge where we had all our team building activities.
If you’re going for a day out with office mates or school reunion. It’s definitely recommended..

When you go to the beach you can see the Colombo city with all high rising buildings at a glance which is really stunning. ❤️
And not to forget FOOD!! 🥘 yummy and I would recommend anyone to try their buffet. Initially I thought the food was not halal as there was pork. But I figured out that they kept pork separately out of buffet table so there won’t be a halal issue.

Overall my 3 days went really well and I’m really looking forward to visit their often.

We stayed here on the last night of our tour of Sri Lanka and have to say it was the worst hotel we stayed in. Staff not attentive, food standard, room had mould in the bathroom and general cleanliness not great. The kettle in our room was not SAFE I boiled the kettle but the button was broken so when I picked up the kettle I burnt all of my hand as the handle was so hot and unsafe. My husband did the same and went to find a member of staff who came to the room and I was shocked he was a manager as he said. It’s ok but I will get you another one no sorry just replaced the kettle which I no doubt was put in another room for someone else to burn themselves on. If that was the U.K. we would had got accident forms out and checked the guest was ok. Breakfast food was also slow and the girl on the omelette station quite rude and abrupt when my husband asked for an omelette she didn’t ask what he wanted just chucked it all in the pan together, all other hotels we had stayed in staff interaction was excellent. There was a group of locals in the hotel drunk and quite loud one having an argument with a member of staff at one point. The beach does look nice but had a big sign up saying NO swimming, this hotel reminded me of a cheap and nasty all inclusive destination you would find in Europe not what we were looking for. The views were the best thing about the hotel. There is nothing outside of this hotel to walk to unless you want to walk 2 miles first.

This place is a gem. The drive from Colombo-1 was long but the place is a paradise in itself. With Beach which is being reclaimed to the view of the Colombo Port, pool area, staff behavior all deserves a grand applause.

The pool facing room on the ground floor was the icing of the hotel experience as the doors open to the pool area. The room was modern and looks chic.

The hotel seemed well known for wedding and events evidenced from the marriage and party packages displayed at the Entrance. Also a event was on way while we were checking in.

The Food spread was fabulous with crabs, seafood, squid, fish, chicken, eggs, mutton, pork included.

Sleep quality was good. I wish we had spend another day there.

This hotel also houses a spa, jewelry shop, souvenir shop along with bars and seafood and specialty restaurants.

Great experience this place is a must stay for those looking for a peaceful and rejuvenating holiday.

Thank you Pegasus Reef for the wonderful experience

I planned to order food for my mothers birthday in october and with the current situation in Srilanka I thought having food delivered for her birthday will be a nice touch as I’m away.

I have contacted the hotel and managed to get in touch with Gayan who is the restaurent manager if I’m not wrong.

I have explained to him my requirements and he had suggest me the best option and I had made the order with him.

100% as confirmed the food was up to quality and I got which was exactly on the picture which was great and satisfying.

The food was delivered on time and the hotel followed all precautionary measures while handing over the food which is great to see from the hotel in Srilanka.

As the service impressed me I knew that nothing can go wrong and I even ordered a cake which was great in flavor and everyone enjoyed.

Gayan is a great hotelier and I wish him all the success and look foreword to order more food from Pegasus.

After a busy week at work (from home), i wanted to treat myself and my family with some outside food. I just happened to see the Pegasus Menu which showed Crab Meal on 13th Nov Friday. I just ordered around 2pm for Dinner. As promised it was delivered to my home in Kandana on time. It was with heavy rain and Lightening. Unlike Uber or Pickme, the hotel’s owned Van was delivering foods hence the safety and hygiene was well maintained. The crab curry and the rice was tastier than i thought. It was our first Crab experience since we last had in Singapore !

Then we didnt stop, post lockdown easement, we visited our parents in Kiribathgoda on 17th Nov and wanted to treat them with Pegagus delights. So ordered Hyderabad Biriyani Pot and a Yellow Rice pot. It was a great family festival amids Covid.

I recommend anyone to enjoy Hotel’s food delivery service going forward and its safe for use!

Thanks Anushka

Pegasus hotel has improved a lot. We stayed in this hotel a long time ago and it was not so good. Now the room has been renovated and it is very nice and comfortable. We stay for 2 nights downstairs room. The buffet breakfast and dinner was excellent with plenty of varieties. Staff offer a good service in the restaurant. The welcoming of guest in the front door need improvement, as we need to take our suitcase from the van ourselves. The swimming pool was good but need more chairs and umbrellas. and a bit of renovation as well. The pool guy was good he make sure people had shower before entering the pool. Nice garden and it was good to see so many weddings. We will come back to Pegasus again next time. The price is affordable, nice food and very relaxing.

We picked Pegasus Reef hotel because of their beautiful location & amazing food. We booked the hotel one year before the wedding. Even our special requests were full-filled without hesitation. We could make the wedding day timeline flow without any problem. We even got a complimentary first day stay at the hotel. Throughout the wedding planning process, staff was really supportive, even after the wedding.

Special thanks :- Mr. Kasun Mendis, Ms. Samanmali Hettiarachchi, Mr. Chathura
