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!

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

The food was great, the athmosphere, calm and peaceful, absorbed by a typical srilankan nature, rich of every kind of plants and animals, like varano:) The procedures... More

We visited Dalmanuta December 2013 and we liked it a lot. We liked it so much that we brought a group of 12 Swedish women and men for ten days of Ayurvedic treatment in December 2014. They are already asking me if and when we can go back to Dalmanuta and we will. Everything is the best with Dalmanuta, the... More
