I was very excited to go to Sri Lanka last season as it was my first visit to the island and though Sri Lanka is not as much popular as some of the other isles but this aspect of less visited places particularly engrosses me as I like the virgin and pristine locales. Being a British colony earlier my interest... More

...I would be a happy man! In the autumn 2013 home in Sweden, we met the swedish owner who recommended us to pay a visit. We trusted him, and that was a great idea! This place, and first and foremost, the people there, are fantastic. Exclusiveness is the word here, not unpersonal marble luxury. By that I mean that I... More

We stayed four nights at Dalmanuta Gardens to finish our trip to Sri Lanka. We were in need of some relaxation after sitting in a car for most of the week prior and that is just what we were able to obtain. The property is beautifully maintained by Chamal, who is extremely helpful. As we were the only guests at... More

We had a fantastic stay at Dalmanuta for one week in April. The staff were so friendly and the place was beautiful. The rooms were comfortable and spacious and the spa is definitely worth a visit. Breakfast and yoga in the mornings were a treat and the surrounding gardens were serene. Thank you for having us.

Our family of 4 spent a week doing a tour around Sri Lanka. It was like a military expedition - everything scheduled to the minute. We spent the last 2 days of our tour in the Dalmanuta Gardens, which was the best decision I could have made. We arrived at the hotel late in the evening but it was not... More

We stayed 8 days at Dalmanuta in April and I have to say that I loved every minute of it! The bungalows are all very luxurious and perfectly clean. The pool area is awesome with 1 pool large enough to do laps in and 1 smaller, more chilled pool with jacuzzi function to sit and relax in. The pool area... More

I came for yoga and ayurvedic treatment. But I must say that the first and best treatment ever was the staff - everyone was so kind, helpful - always with a beautiful smile. The resort rested in a peaceful and healing environment, calming for stressed souls. Only birds and crickets, fish jumping in the ponds - one or two monkeys... More

Like the Garden of Eden, so many flowers, so many birds, exotic fruits and just a few mosquitos)) and even though the hotel was fully booked, we felt like we were alone.

What makes Dalmanuta so enchanted is the warm and friendly service, the perfect location for relaxing with its selected number of bungalows and the love of the owner for the place. From the moment I arrived and was collected from the airport I was made extremely welcome. The manager Chamal and his family, the front office manager Imail, the chief... More

Dalmanuta Gardens is a lovely, small resort located by the Bentota river. The staff is very warm and welcoming, from the wonderful team of Sumith and Saresh at the restaurant to the staff at the Ayuverdic spa, housekeeping and the great care of managers Ismail and Chamal. The food was delicious, fresh and healthy served in their restaurant with the... More
