Time Out says
A truly Sri Lankan hotel with a Swiss touch.
Known as ‘A truly Sri Lankan hotel with a Swiss touch’, The Swiss Residence is an extremely in-demand hotel located amidst an elevated and picturesque site. Surrounded by lush greenery of the countryside landscape, it exudes a blissful atmosphere drawing in backpackers and visitors of all ages.
The irregularly shaped outdoor swimming pool with its signature dolphin is a nod towards the fusion of modern concepts into the otherwise traditional setting. Various rooms and suites along with a reception hall, conference room, a lobby bar, an indoor restaurant and an ayurvedic spa offer a diverse collection of facilities and services for visitors to choose from.
Though it is highly unlikely to have a dull moment in the presence of impeccable services and contemporary facilities, The Swiss Residence offers different recreational pastimes. If you ever find yourself yawning and wondering what to do, grab a racquet and engage in a game of table tennis with a partner or play some pool, carom or darts with your friends.
