Sundaras Resort was truly a gem! What a fantastic find in Dambula on our way to Sigiriya. I've traveled to over 82 countries and rarely write a review but this place deserves mention. One of the owners, Damien, helped us coordinate the rest of our entire Sri Lanka trip. He drove us to a massage establishment which I would rate... More

Immaculate rooms and incredibly helpful staff. Staff very helpful with buses to Sigiriya and also down to kandy and they also have their own van if you want an organised tour. The food was fantastic and so cheap. Great base for the main sites in dambulla and beyond. Definitely recommend staying here and will do so again on future visits.

We came straight to Sundaras from the airport, so were a little worse for wear and this was a great place to get over our jetlag, plus take in the cultural sights. The rooms are very large and cool with aircon. Staff are v.friendly and helpful, offering info about local area. Really central, right beside golden & rock cave temples.... More

The hotel is really peculiar. It's more of a backpackers hostel. The owner of the hotel was strange and the vibe was weird. He would stay up with the younger travellers and drink with them. Rooms - were dirty, the fixtures in the bathroom were coming off (ie towel rack), my sink was clogged, the shower was mouldy.

In a very convenient position for Dambulla, just a couple of minutes walk to Temple and about 10 minutes walk to the town, this nice spot has a lot of surrounding trees giving a pleasant relaxed feel. We had a large comfortable room with en suite shower room and everywhere was spotless. All rooms had a terrace or balcony for... More

I stayed three nights at Sundaras last month. The staff went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable. One staff member let me borrow his adapter to charged my camera battery which he was using to charge his own phone. Another brought me a mosquito coil while I was reading at dusk on my porch. The chicken curry was... More

Background: We spent 6 days in Sri Lanka. What we wanted out of our trip was to visit the Ancient cities, 3 of which are located within a fairly short distance of each other. We chose to base our stay in Dambulla as we wanted to have easy access to Sigiriya and Polonnaruwa, and as we were determined to use... More

We had a great stay at Sundarras! From the moment we arrived Damien and his staff were friendly and helpful. They upgraded us to a larger room, and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Thanks to them we had a great time in Dambulla. Would definitely recommend!
