We headed for Haridra Resort and Spa completely ignoring the host of recent negative reviews on the place. We regretted not taking Trip Advisors reviews big time. The property is fantastic and the building, rooms and pool are really good. The rooms are huge. “But” the staff, management and basic facilities were terrible. After we checked in to our room...

We went to Haridra thinking that it would be a great experience as many people have told us before. We were going to be there for two days. The entrance is beautiful and parking was a breeze. As soon as we entered the whole hotel felt like it was empty and lifeless. We noticed that the hotel did not have... More

From the gigantic entrance in to Haridra’s perfectly landscaped the gardens onto the élite car porch and walk up to the main building, everything about the hotel is about peace, serenity tranquility and ambiance. We staid in a "Mansion suit" which gave us the please from the check-in time till the moment we checked out. Wooden stare case / Courtyard... More

Firstly the hotel on the overall is not managed by Jetwing hotels as mentioned on most sites. It has been taken over by a medical corp running under a brand name Vendol. For those who dont know jetwing is leading hotelier in the country with a great number of resorts and hotels under their portfolio. On the other hand I... More

This was our first time at Haridra Resort Wadduwa. We spent two nights from 11th April this year on a family holiday. The hotel is an All suites hotel with 3categories of suites. We stayed in two Ocean suites. These are situated on the 2nd floor and directly overlook the sea, which is quite close to the hotel frontage. In... More

Serene ocean views, extremely spacious two story rooms with access to a pool and beach. As I said, very nicely built hotel. That about sums it all. Service...does not apply! They proudly had posted a Trip Adviser sticker...no way is this a 4.5 star given the service. Heard from friends that management changed relatively recently.

As written in previous reviews something has happened at this hotel for it to drop its standards so significantly, because the hotel we stayed at did not deserve its awards. The managerial staff were aware of the hotel problems, so they would often assume the responsibilities of bar staff or table staff, to compensate for the poor service and flaws... More

We stayed in Garden suites and they are spacious and comfortable. Bathroom is quite big and layout is really impressive. Food - not much variety. not worth for... More
