The hotel is located on a quiet beach which is by far the cleanest you can ever see in Sri Lanka. This is located close to Yala and is a good option to stay if you intend visiting the park. This review is kind of late as I traveled in August 2013.

Far off into the bush but it is an AMAZING resort. It's out there, if you are driving you will think you are lost and will want to turn back. The GPS will tell you you are going in the right direction and you wil SERIOUSLY doubt it until you turn the final dirt corner and see this amazing resort.... More

We had a wonderful stay here. The hotel is gorgeous and well designed with a clean and not so crowded beach. One of the best things about this place is the staff. Everyone was so courteous and friendly. The rooms are spacious and cozy. While we did enjoy the food the lunch and dinner buffet didn't have such a variety... More

We chose Ranna 212 for a little luxury between more rustic lodgings on our recent family holiday. With a little more attention to detail it could become a truly great hotel. The location is superb! Ranna beach was a deserted tropical paradise. Huge waves made swimming dangerous - but very exciting. Hotel pool was great - very clean, large, well... More

Ranna 212 is about 5 kilometers from the main road towards the sea. The road to the hotel is terrible but when you enter to the hotel, it is a hotel with luxury. We were taken in to the hotel in a tradition routine ending with feeding the fish. This was really a unique welcome which we experienced & then... More

When we drove down the narrow lanes of the adjacent neighborhood we never expected to find a hotel that would not be out of place in any major seaside resort area. The rooms are large, clean and modern. The grounds well landscaped. The pool inviting with comfortable loungers and plenty of shade. And there is ample lounging area near the... More

I stayed 2 nights during a roundtrip. Good variety of food at breakfast and diner. Large rooms, but already a bit used. Airconditioning too loud. The fridge in the room didn't work and nothing was done to change it, although I told them from the start. At a friends room the toilet didn't work. Nice location. Amazing beach.

We wanted to relax and unwind after a very, stressful and tiring few months of work. The usual 5 star hotels were considered, but all in all we... More
