If you are after peace and quiet, excellent quality rooms and service, then this is the place. The swimming pool is nice and big, surrounded by beautiful gardens, and lovely birdsong. A real personal touch with the delightful Swiss owner / manager. Ask her to tell you how she came to build the hotel, and about her special elephant...

Villa Ranmenika is a gem of a guesthouse. We recently stayed with our 2 children and thoroughly enjoyed it. Very clean, comfortable rooms, delicious food, friendly staff and a beautiful garden setting are some of the highlights. There is also a large pool that the kids just loved. Ahungala Beach is just across the road and is a fine stretch... More

After many vacations spent at big,noisy, entertainment dense hotels, Villa Ranmenika was a dream. A beautiful Sri Lankan style house with wood framed windows,verandas and rooms hidden in a tropical garden. All this created an atmosphere where you could instantly relax. The room was very clean with nice wooden furniture. There was enough hot water with good pressure. You could... More

The owner lady speaks very nicely with the customers. There is... More

What a delightful place to stay. We were there for a family wedding at the Heritance Hotel, about 500 metres along the beach. The gardens at the Ranmenika are beautiful, quiet and we saw at least 30 species of bird as well as monkeys and monitor lizards. The Ranmenika pool and garden are a haven of peace compared to the...

This is an undiscovered gem of a place. I have travelled Sri Lanka many times. I have travelled with my partner and 80year old mother. Staying here is like staying in your own private villa. A beautiful colonial villa excellently maintained. Spacious airy rooms, air conditioning, fan,spotlessly clean and excellent service. Elfie the owner cannot do enough to make your... More

It is a cosy hotel, the owner is swiss and she is very helpful and friendly. The curry there is the best I had in sri lanka without costing the earth. The curry is even better than the 5 star hotel triton. Her staff are also very helpful.
