Have just spent 10 days here. The holiday was nice,peaceful and relaxing. Resort is friendly and clean, however there are a couple of things that could be done to make it even better. The wine is pricey and the price you see is 25% lower than the actual price you pay, if youre not aware it could come as a... More

Very luxurious hotel, with excellent food. Situated right on the beach, with great views over the ocean and fishing boats. The staff were friendly and service-minded, and the atmosphere at the hotel is relaxing. Worked well for our children, who are 3 and 5 years old, with a nice pool and good Beach for swimming. We would love to go... More

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at Ranweli. The staff are very contented, happy people, the hotel is spotlessly clean, the entire holiday was very peaceful & relaxing, the food was excellent. We did several trips including Yalla national park, Kandy, dolphin watching - all with Anthony, who is a man of his word - excellent service... More

I was staying in a great place in Negombo but wanted to visit a great beach nearby....so it's only a 20 minutes drive 'tuk-tuk' to visit this place as a day visitor. If you want the lunch buffet and to swim in the pool...they have a basic set-charge for this. Otherwise, I went here and ate at the a-la-carte poolside/seaside... More

Just arrived home after a two week stay at the Ranweli Holiday Village. Had a great time. We stayed in a deluxe beach bungalow which was in a lovely spot, quite secluded and just set back enough to have privacy from passers by. Some of the standard bungalows were quite close to the restaurant which I wouldn't have liked, and... More

It's all been said before but as our first time here we loved it, much better than expected, we were upgraded from standard to deluxe room which meant we had a small detached bungalow on the beach with our own loungers and nice shade trees. Idyliic really. French, Swiss, German, UK people were there mostly so a nice mix. No... More

We had 2 weeks at this fantastic venue. We knew how special it would be as we arrived and needed to catch a small ferry across the river to the peaceful beautiful atoll which is Ranwali. The natural surroundings in the middle of the mangrove swamps was stunning. Is is essential it's own little nature reserve. No vehicles only one... More

We stayed at this hotel at the end of our stay in Sri Lanka. We wanted somewhere with a resort feel which was also close to the airport. Ranweli hit the spot. The kids loved the little adventure getting there, as you have to cross the small stretch of sea on a barge. Check-in seemed a bit unprofessional if I'm... More

We planned this trip to be our last "biggie" as we felt we were getting a bit old for too much long haul. However this trip was so fantastic and the flights with Emirates, Economy, so good we are now looking for our next "biggie". The hotel and location were just as it said on the tin, exactly as promised... More
