In a striking contrast to more ordinary and large hotels which might be both extravagant and luxurious but rarely anything else, the guests at Serene Pavilions – in the village of Wadduva – experience an unusual and rare atmosphere which is best described as a "paradisiacal idea". With the care and attention to each guest shown by the staff, Serene... More

We stayed 4 nights at this fabulous hotel and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The service is impeccable. Each pavilion (room) has it's own butler. We had Suminda and he looked after us with a friendly, professional efficiency. Anything we needed was dealt with immediately and (unlike the other hotels we stayed at on our recent tour) the staff... More

We had a great time..We spent two nights at serene pavilions as part of our honeymoon and it was awesome. We had planned this trip much earlier and due to some issues we could not make it. However, the hotel was very kind and changed our dates without any fuss. It was very convenient and Thilini, who handled our reservation... More

Our feelings from this place are mixed at best. We had really high expectations and the place didn't live up to them. We have spent here almost a week and that was just too long in first place. Food was average at best. Butler service was very very poor. The deck around our pool was kinda damaged and we had... More

What a fantastic place. Great place to relax and be pampered after several days touring. very peaceful - a great place to relax in beautiful surroundings. Couldn't fault it and we are very "picky travellers". Stayed for 9 nights March /April 2014. The service was fantastic - thoughtful but not intrusive - thanks Lahero (our butler) you were amazing.

We booked our stay at Serene Pavilions as a very last minute "baby moon." I am 5 months pregnant and my husband is working extremely hard, so we wanted somewhere with privacy that we could really relax. We could not have hoped for better. We took a garden Pavilion, which was the ultimate in privacy and relaxation. We wouldn't have... More

Nice beach resort (only 12 suites) with very friendly staff (actually you have your own butler!). Very well maintained garden and pool area. Management is always present and trying to help within their possibilities. Very good food and very nice beach (always clean and well maintained in front of hotel). In the garden you will find about 5 waran's (large... More

We have just returned after our stay at this hotel. WOW. What a stunning paradise. After a very long journey with delayed flights, we were given a very friendly welcome, check in was easy and quick, they fed us, and then gave us privacy to relax and catch up on our sleep. Our butler was on hand if we needed... More
