Although it's a high-class dining place but I didn't enjoy much. First, only one staff serving the whole restaurant. At that night there were at least four table dining at the same time, with many of them outdoor so I wasn't sure how many guests were served by only one waiter. Therefore, everything was slow and it was difficult to... More

Played here during the SriLankan Golf Classic and the course was in very good condition. Nice layout and the difficult rough will make it a challenge for anyone. Staff and caddies were very good (but they were hosting a major tournament so not sure how it is during regular play). Good food and drink at the bar. I'd rate this... More

You really don't need to play golf to enjoy the peace & tranquillity of this venue. If you live in the city this is a fantastic place to sit back & relax on the verandah of your chalet just off the 17th tee. Watch the golfers strolling along the fairways but more importantly listen to & watch the local wildlife... More

The golf course is amazing, stunning views and a well maintained course. Sadly, the golf lodges are below par. Very basic accommodation, dark and not as clean as they could be. The spa is also very basic.

Most of my school holidays was spent here nearly fifty years ago before I emigrated to the u.k. This used to be a dairy farm and a cocoa plantation known as Mahaberiyatenne estate so it was good to revisit this place now known as Victoria golf & country resort. We drove along the old road passing the superintendent's bungalow where... More

I am currently staying at this resort. The main chalets were all booked, so the staff kindly booked me into a villa (JanPeterson is its name). it is spacious and luxurious, private pool etc etc. The meals are mostly western, and fine (avoid the steak tournedos but have the burgers !). The staff are extremely helpful, nothing is too much... More

Had several lessons with the club pro. He was fantastic! The backdrop for this gold course is just beautiful.

We have played this course on every trip to Sri Lanka for the past 4 years and can only say it gets better and better. The course is in a perfect condition even considering they have had some heavy rains in the past few months. The caddies are great so helpful, polite and friendly knowing the course and playing off... More

My son and I played a round of golf at the Victoria Resort, a really cool experience. If you demand an impeccably groomed championship course in tip top shape, this is not the place for you. If you like great scenery, amazing history, a cool layout, and you dont mind a few oddities (horses hanging out by the teebox) then... More

The Victoria Golf and Country Resort is one of the most beautiful places I’ve visited. Surrounded by mountains, lush greenery, the Victoria Lake, and of course the beautiful golf course.. Most of the privately owned villas on the property are extremely arty, modern and tasteful. Ours was a last minute trip planned over a long weekend, so we stayed at... More
