I just fall in love with this hotel because of helpfull staff, delicious food, empty beach, huge room suite with great ocean view! U just need to do 10 steps to fall in the ocean! Also the hotel is near Bentota (for buying fresh fish and shrimps), Kosgoda 8km for visiting turtles and Hikkaduwa beach! Great service for its price!... More

I was moved to Pandanus when I was not happy at the 5* hotel booked from UK and so came to Pandanus by accident and I am so glad I did. Superb location, recently refurbished to very high standards, with all rooms facing the sea and with balconies. Great staff from front office, to restaurant waiters, bar and pool area.... More

I went to the pandanus beach resort with my husband and 2 young kids ages 3 and 5. As you walk up the steps to the lobby you are greeted with a breathtakingly beautiful view of the ocean that you will soon realize is your own private beach since there's barely anyone there! Parents, the beach is clear of rocks,... More
