Revealing the path to a luxurious getaway, it is truly a home away from home. At Pledge 3 it is not merely about spending another vacation, it is about ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation.

Departing from the usual hotel concept, the atmosphere at Pledge 3 exuded a distinctive aura. In the backdrop of a modern architectural setting, the hotel is predominantly white and red, representing the theme colours of Pledge 3. The hotel imparts a modernist approach to relaxation, albeit a homely one, that would allow one to be in absolute peace. Though the hotel is situated in close proximity to the Negombo town, the calming ambience of the hotel buffers the outside buzz, taking its guests to a tranquil paradise with absolute privacy.

True to its motif of tranquillity, the lobby with a minimalistic design leads up to a courtyard with a wooden floor, and its entrance at the other end offers a glimpse of the pool and the public spaces of the hotel. The farther end of the courtyard directs one to the poolside and the hotel’s main restaurant and pub—Jive Galley and Retro Pub.

Both Jive Galley and Retro Pub are set in open spaces that lavishly afford picturesque views of the pool. At dusk, the setting is extremely mesmerising as the twilight blissfully blends with the ambience of the restaurant, creating the perfect backdrop for a romantic dinner. The restaurant offers everything from international, continental, Indian, Chinese to authentic Sri Lankan. But, unlike in a traditional restaurant, at Jive Galley, guests could order anything of their choice and witness how it is being prepared at the open kitchen. And if need be, you can even select the ingredients and get it prepared exactly the way you like. The Retro Pub is also ideal for spending time relaxing while sipping a drink or for those long chats with friends and family.

Pledge 3 has a salt water pool, which is natural and free of chemicals, and it is the only one in Negombo. Guaranteed, a cooling dip will surely refresh your senses.

The hotel has 12 deluxe rooms and two Attic Suites, all of which are spaciously designed with modern amenities to ensure a comfortable stay. Privacy, peace and quiet have been given significant attention in the design of rooms. Luxury bedding, tastefully crafted furniture and contemporary bathrooms express the hotel’s attempts to deliver the best holiday experience to its guests. Free Wi-Fi, IDD and cable tv are some of the facilities provided for a luxurious holiday experience.

At Pledge 3, each guest is treated as part of its family. It is simply, more than just a holiday.
