Hotel it self is under a different management and the courtesy and friendliness of the staff is admirable. Of course there were some flows in the hotel management as it... More

I stayed here on half board basis and my experience has been extremely positive. This hotel used to be called Emerald Bay, Induruwa but this place is under completely new management from May 2014 (as I understand) hence the new name 'Pandanus'. This means you can safely ignorer some negative comments prior to may 2014 (I am glad I did).... More
