Were out here for Christmas and New Year. Our first bit of good news came almost immediately, when we were told that our room was ready, and we had been upgraded to a superior room, with no extra charge (we had arrived in the morning and had not expected to have a room until 3p.m.) The room was a very...

This was our first trip to Sri Lanka and we spent ten days in the Ranweli this January. We were delighted with the location, it's quite something to arrive at the hotel by raft and this experience introduces the hotel's peaceful atmosphere. The hotel is now several years old and starting to show some signs of ageing. That said, it... More

Ranweli hotel situated off Negombo and ideal hotel for a relaxation, Need little improvements in F& B service, Especially in the restaurant and pool bar. Ayurveda Spa was fully booked. Not helpful to accomodate

We make it priority to have family time In the midst of the busy Christmas time. Ranweli has been our chosen place because it has all we want peace,tranquility,great food, clean rooms, great service and the manager Lakmal Peiris went out of his way to ensure our stay was comfortable in every way, that's not something I see in hotels!...

This was our third visit to Sri Lanka and almost certainly the best!! Ranweli Holiday village situated between a river and the sea is accessed by a short punt ride across the river. Once there the tranquillity of the resort is immediate. Check in was speedy and we stayed in a De-luxe Bungalow which was detached and provided comfortable accommodation... More

We stayed here on the day of recent government election, which was interesting and also a little confusing..more later! We arrived at the end of a 2 week stay of the island driving from Ude Walawe to here during voting time was quite interesting and not at all scary. Sri Lankans are such a friendly nation, always willing to say... More

Booked all inclusive for new year. Accommodation ok (upgraded to superior deluxe bungalow which had apparently just been renovated). Whilst spacious and cleanish it would only take a few extra finishing touches from housekeeping to improve - maybe clear the Perspex roof of the bathroom, fill the water feature with water, keep the outside water pot filled, get rid of...

we stayed at the Ranweli hotel for Xmas 2014.In spite of a little rainy weather our stay was great thanks to the perfect organisation of Xmas eve, the cheerful atmosphere and excellent food. The whole inclusive package is a very good value for the money. The bungalows are comfortable, nicely designed the service is very freindly.

Been here a month so far so feel that we have the measure of this resort. To start with the staff,not a single bad apple, they are always helpful and charming even when we lost our I Pad and went into a mild panic they came en masse and found the thing. The deluxe bungalow, is the height of comfort,private... More
