The Serene Pavilions is a awesome place for Tranquility, Super luxury & Peace, Each pavilion has its own swimming pool & of course most importantly a personal Butler. Its own private beach area with no nearby hotels makes life more peaceful & enjoyable. It has its own sitting & dining area as well. Simply Luxury

The arrangements of a special surprise treat our... More

I do not like to write bad reviews. Never & anywhere. But I have to. We went to Serene to relax, expecting the highest possible level of luxury and comfort in Lanka. Wanted to switch of and just enjoy our own company. Until we caught OUR BUTLER PEEPING THROUGH THE WINDOW! He had a ladder by our pavilion and was... More

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.
