On arrival at the hotel a very short river crossing by ferry is required. The hotel is set in a quiet costal location almost on its own island. Staff were attentive and friendly. Our rooms were 0.2 miles from the reception/bar/restaurant area, all others bar one were closer! Room was comfortable and had a view of the ocean. Bed was... More

Stayed with family and friends!! Booked three Cabanas. The rooms were great. Quite spacious too. However the air conditioning was not powerful enough in one of the rooms. Apart from that the facilities were okay. Rooms are pretty lovely! Quite homely. During the day we stayed. It was pretty booked and hence a large crowd during mealtimes. Some of the... More

Hotel and surroundings: The hotel is situated on a big peninsula, in front of the hotel there is the Indian Ocean, and behind the hotel there is a river, so you go inside by ferry. There is a ferryman in 0-24, so that's not a problem. This is more like a bungalow village, rather than a hotel. It has one... More

Visited Ranweli Holiday Village for our honeymoon August 2015. Lovely resort on the beach, with a great laid back and natural vibe. Staff very friendly at all times. Food was great, with good selection to choose from. Bungalow was amazing, well decorated with fantastic sea facing view. Whole resort was so clean and well maintained. Would recommend

We stayed here only one night after our arrival in Sri Lanka. The location of the hotel is very beautiful. The room was spacious and very well equipped. Nice swimming pool. The food is ok but not very special.

We are still here with a few days left of our 18 night stay. As you arrive through the gates of the hotel you are met by the ferry and the ferryman punts you across to the hotel. We are staying in room 142 which is the furthest away from everything and the only luxury cottage at the hotel, the... More

Stayed here for almost three weeks, with a break in the middle to visit Trinco. Staff are really friendly and attentive, and nothing is too much trouble for them, even to the extent of brushing up fallen leaves outside our bungalow everyday. Huge choice of food in the restaurant and lots of it. European, Oriental and Sri Lankan food all... More

Food was good and a buffet with lot of choices.Our cabana was facing beach and... More

We travelled here at the tail end of their monsoon season. It is an interesting way to get to reception from the coach, a man on a large punt takes you across the river to the hotel. The first 2 days were cloudy and no sun, beware you still burn..alot. For almost 2 weeks we had wind which kept us... More
