The Maha Gedara is the opposit. This place is an Ayurveda only hotel. The location right on the beach as well... More

Generally it's a good hotel and serves it's purpose. The atmosphere is relaxed, the rooms renovated and clean, the food is good, the treatments very well organised and the doctors nice and attentive (although you have to realise that you're not getting a serious health treatment but rather a bit of a casual fix to your body and mind).

For Sri Lankan standards it is clearly a luxury hotel - concerning international standards they are missing a lot. The rooms are nice and fairly clean. A big disadvantage is the fact that you hear every noise coming from the corridor and you will miss amenities like slippers or pantys that you can wear during your oily treatments. I had... More
