This is a place to slow down, and enjoy the tranquil gardens, the meals on the water and the many Ayurvedic treatments on offer. Unfortunately, we only had one night, and wanted to see the famous gardens of Bevis Bawa (The Brief) and his brother Geoffrey Bawa (Lunuganga) that are both about 20 minutes tuktuk away, so we had little...

We stayed at Dalmanuta Gardens for 3 days with our sons (9 & 12). The Pros Delicious papaya juice upon arrival. Very friendly staff and very accommodating. Beautiful surroundings. You can have your meals in the gazebos down near the river. Gorgeous! Delicious curries. Chef Athula was very helpful and gave an impromptu Sri Lankan cooking lesson (for free!). He... More

We ordered catch of the day for our diner at breakfast. The staff then went out and bought the fish fresh from the fishermen. What... More

I have been holding back this review for so long. It's been almost a month since I was last at Dalmanuta Gardens and still - when I close my eyes at night, I am transported back to my walks in the evening where fire-flies fluttered about and I couldn't tell the difference between them and the stars. I don't want... More

We stayed here for three nights at the end of a tour of Sri lanka and completely relaxed! The food was delicious with the chef always on hand to make something we fancied and delivered to wherever we wanted to eat in the grounds. We didn't take part in the Ayurvedic treatments or yoga sessions but the hotel was a... More

Never seen a place like this! The client is just treated as a king! Everything was perfect, staff, food and rooms. Luxury and peaceful are the keywords for this hotel! After having travelled for 3 weeks in Sri Lanka, we were hoping to get some rest, mission accomplished!

Very nice and helpfull staff. Would do anything for our kids to feel at home. It is close to Bentota beach (take a tuk tuk -... More

Dalmanuta Gardens is a wonderful hotel made up of nine beautiful bungalows and extensive gardens leading down to the river. The pool area is lovely and we were presented with a fruit plate and water when we arrived for a swim. Each bungalow is set in a private garden with a table and chairs and sunbeds to relax on..although we... More
