Amazing food, charming setting, friendly owner! I read few reviews of this place and planned to go for for a special birthday dinner. The food was delicious and fantastic. Thank you Chef Athula and waiter Darshana who made this special occasion memorable and romantic. We will definitely come back!

The individual secluded bungalows set in very green surrounding with wild life such as monkey ,monitors ,mongoose, fruit bats , fire fly ect. visible is magical. Restaurant staff is very helpful in choosing the suitable menu , the organic fruit platter is delicious and so is the fruit juice at breakfast. The boat trip to the beach and the yoga... More

Came straight here from the airport and it really is the perfect place to start your trip if traveling around Sri Lamka. A lovely place to unwind and relax after a long journey. Really enjoyed the morning yoga. Food fouls have been a little better.

Simply amazing. Utterly beautiful and extraordinary value for money. For the first time in Sri Lanka there was finally some peace and quiet away from the hectic roads. The chalets are a delight, clean, comfy and spacious. Can't recommend highly enough

This is a nice little gated resort with a max occupancy of 18. The pool is great, as are the gardens. The room is quite nice. Clean, spacious and with A/C. The TV is old school though, and tiny. The restaurant is well placed and provides great food. The wait time can be long however they do disclose this straight... More

We stayed here for 10 nights over the new year period and are so glad we chose this place, we were collected at the airport with no problems and after a 2hr journey arrived at Dalmanuta . The room was just as in the photos excellent and the greeting of the staff was 10/10 . Boat trip to the beach... More

This hotel got what you want, if you like silence, great food (fresh fish or seafood every day), wonderful staff, perfect accommodation, cleanness, garden architecture, nice pool area. You really stay in the untouched nature. Wild monkeys in the trees, lot... More

We brought our family of four on 30-31st Dec 2015. We received a warm welcome at this beautiful resort. The chef here is excellent, and the property of a good standard. We especially enjoyed the daily morning yoga classes and the excellent massage. One afternoon we took the complimentary boat trip to the beach, which was lovely.

Lovely and peaceful location, very nice staff in a unique setting. Yoga classes and trips very good. However, it is rather overpriced. The onward/airport transfers are up to three times the cost elsewhere which is disappointing. Probably better for a 3-4 night stay than a week. While we were there the owner also had a habit of yelling at his... More

Thank you for taking your valuable time to give us feedback. First of all I would like to apologize for my anger and raising my voice to my staff and by phone to the supplier in public, only because getting out of stock… It is a totally unacceptable behavior. Please forgive me. The prices to and from the airport is... More

Everything about Dalmanuta gardens is nice: the beautiful gardens, the pool, the bungalow with super comfortable bed and great shower, the massages, the boat trip to the sea, the dinner on the river. It's a feast to the eyes. The staff is also very friendly. Highly recommend it!
