Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location and service fantastic. My partner is disabled and they provided us with a wheelchair and even upgraded us to make our lives easier. We took our teenage daughters with us and they had a great time. Sri Lanka is an amazing country an esperience not to be missed

Large rooms with nice wooden finishing, natural feeling all over this place including on the romantic terrace at the sea side. Nice large swimming pool and private beach where in this season the rough waves guarantee lots of water fun with the kids, huge waves! Nice restaurant, buffet with nice appetizers and good diversity of local dishes - curries of... More

If you are looking for peace, with virtually NO entertainment, apart from very mediocre live music during the evening meal, and a folklore show (about 30 mins) which was repeated every Friday, This is the place to go. I never thought I would complain about the heat, but in March (temperature around 40, and very humid), I was forced to:-).... More

Great entrance to the hotel via river boat. The staff were all very helpful although slightly slow but friendly none the less. Beautiful location and fantastic meals especially on our personalised river boat dinner.

We stayed 2 days in this hotel during our honeymoon. At your arrival you have to park your vehicle and take a raft, which will take you to the hotel, 'coz there is a river to cross. It's really peaceful place and waking up at dawn with the sound of waves in a bungalow overlooking the sea is something indescribable.... More

What an amazing place to stay.From the moment we got there to the moment we left we were treated like a king & queen. Every single member of staff that we met always had a warm smile for us and always stopped to talk. They could not do enough for you. The food was absolutely gorgeous with a massive selection...

I took my staff and their families on a day outing to Ranweli Village today. All of them loved the place very much. Even I never thought, this place is so great. It's a wonderful location. No sooner I entered the place, I got a very peaceful feeling. Staff were friendly and the rooms were not bad. Food was excellent.... More

We stayed at ranweli in april 2015 and it was one of the best experiences we have had in sri lankan hotel! The rooms are comfortable (AC could work a bit better though!) and the location is perfect for a quick getaway from colombo. But that's not why i was impressed by it, it was the service ! I travel...
