Pegasus Reef

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

An excellent property set by the seashore, it has expansive lawns and glorious views of the Indian Ocean with alluring emerald blue green waters. Of the 2 restaurants, the Fishery has fewer choices but awesome seafood with the outstanding red snapper in Sri Lankan curry being the piece-de-resistance ! Rooms are good, airy and have a very modern ambience though the hotel is quite old and was devastated in the 2004 Tsunami. There's a nice swimming pool, small coconut orchards, party halls and large patches of green to run around, not to mention the gym and tennis courts. A little off the way in Wattala - about 40 min drive from the Colombo International airport. Sadly, there aren't too many shopping or eating out options within 3 km radius of this fantastic hotel

I stayed one night in this beautiful hotel I had nice food in one of the restaurant I forgot the restaurant name and CHEF THILAN was taking cared for me he was friendly and nice smile best chef I have ever seen

The pegasus reef hotel restaurant was exceptional, a variety of options and was flavorful. The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing but also because the prices were so reasonable for an oceanfront resort! 

Enjoyed the excellent array of traditional Sri lankan and non traditional foods. Their butter cake was the best I ever had,,,,, so soft and yummy perhaps the best butter cake in the world. Hotel is localed is a tranqual beach front loction yet only very short drive to colombo city.....
