We stayed here for three weeks and loved every minute of it. The hospitality of the owner Buwaneka is second to none. He's one of the most helpful... More

I spent four wonderful days at Ranveli and felt very safe and relaxed considering I'm a single female who was on a long weekend business trip. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating to my demands. The room was very clean and comfortable with both a fan and A/C as well as a cable TV, fridge, sofa and a lockable... More

My ten days of stay in Ranvelli Beach Hotel was great! Though it was such a short stay for lots of activities to do, my stay in Ranvelli Beach hotel was a big help. It became easier for me because of the help and warm accommodation of the Hotel friendly staff. They welcomed me like a family and that is... More
