Set against the magnificent views of the Negombo Lagoon is Amagi Aria, providing honeymoon couples an easy get-away from Colombo and located just a few minutes from the Airport.
The hotel’s spacious and well-appointed suites, with panoramic views which honeymoon couples can upgrade by paying a nominal fee, offers four-star luxury and comfort like no other hotel in Negombo.
Amagi Aria has 68 rooms of which 4 are Suites and 47 are Deluxe rooms. The Sunset Suites in the 6th floor which offer breathtaking views of the lagoon and which we reviewed are highly recommended. With an open-style living space with a large living room, king-size bed, large balcony with your own private jacuzzi, walk-in closet and a spacious bathroom offers all that you want. The bathroom is large with a rain shower, his and hers sink. Setting high standards, the rooms offer natural mineral water from Acqua Panna and Illy Espresso machines.
Moreover, honeymoon couples will be also treated with sparkling wine on arrival and chocolates which couples can enjoy while savoring the views. You can also enjoy a romantic dinner at the Moya restaurant, which is the Amagi Aria’s fine-dining sea- food restaurant which offer scrumptious sea-food dishes. We were treated to an array of sea food and highly recommend the Ceylon Black Pepper Crusted Yellow Fin Tuna Tataki (appetizer), the Crazy Crab – the wok fried crab with cashew which was absolutely delicious and the Grilled Salmon. You can even opt to have your meals at the tree house, the deck overlooking the lagoon or the pontoon. If not, you can enjoy the range of local and international dishes served at the hotel’s restaurant.
The honeymoon package also offers an excursion on the lagoon or boat-ride to Muthurajawela, so that you can enjoy the natural beauty of the surroundings. Also remember to inquire about the high-tea which pairs the savouries, sweets and other food items with different types of tea. The 40 ft pool and the water sports are also on offer for those who want to be a bit more adventurous. If not, you can head to the hotel spa, which specializes in Balinese treatments.
The hotel also hosts weddings at their reception hall, as well as in the lawn area and the deck with the beautiful lagoon as the background. Speak to Renuke, General Manager at Amagi Aria for further information and we must make note of the warm and friendly staff at the hotel!
