The property is quite good as there is a lot of greenery around. The eating place is good as well, specially in morning. The breakfast was good as well specially coconut roti which you will find in many places in Lanka but not of the same taste and ingredients. We visited the mangrove forest in the boat which was quite... More

Highly recommend this place to chill out and relax from the hustle and bustle of Bentota. The rooms are spacious and clean. I stayed at the luxury villa and thoroughly enjoyed the garden and the peaceful surroundings even if the birds and the prayer calls take a bit of getting used to! The staff are friendly and the food is... More

The hotel is really a dream and perfect for relaxing after a strenuous tour. We stayed at this hotel in early July as the only guests three days and felt like princesses :-). The whole staff was very friendly and always tried to make your stay as pleasant as possible. In Dalmanuta you feel always really welcome. The food was... More

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

stayed 2 nights here in February It was very different to other places we stayed but nice different. Located on the lagoon you can sit and eat your meals watching the eagles and other birds. 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!
