It was classed by Kuoni as a three star resort however reading literature in a Sri Lanka resort guide it was classed as only two star and we had paid over £1200 each for what was described by Kuoni...

Probably a fancy place 8 years ago, now it seems a bit run down. The place could easily get 5 points by adjusting a few things. The swing is broken, fix it. The pool area is not supplied with mattresses for the sun beds. A few lanterns outside the restaurant would be cheap and amazing. When we visited most guests... More

We visited this hotel recently with a couple of friends. The welcome was pathetic from the security to the receptionist. No one was there to help with our baggages. The rooms were okay apart from the cockroaches. (mind you, in all 3 rooms we were in). In ours, the cockroach was in the electric kettle. The food was good, especially... More

My husband and I were fortunate to have been able to visit this resort. The resort is based on an island, that has to be reached by a small ferry across a river. The setting was beautiful, the staff were friendly and very accommodating. The food was amazing, every dish bursting with flavour.... Try EVERYTHING! We watched many brides photographed... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 days at the beginning of our holiday and 4 days at the end. It is absolutely perfect for those wishing to get away from the hectic and relax. We stayed in a beachfront, sea view house and the sound of the sea was the biggest noise we had to contend with -... More

If you are looking for an all-inn resort, Ranwelli is probably a good place. However, don't expect to get a real Sri Lanka feeling in this posh place. We just stayed two nights to recuperate from the jet-lag and get ready to discover the real Sri Lanka. Rooms and bathroom are clean and almost to european standards. The staff is... More
