I had a wonderful stay at Rawana holiday in. The staff was super friendly and Sankha especially did everything possible to make me feel at home. The view from my room was devine and there was a serenity to just lying in the hammock in front of my room and enjoying the view. The curries were absolutely delicious and great... More

Stayed one night in this hotel while visiting Ella. Very simple room with plywood doors, fan and a madrass on top of planks, very noisy. One could hear everything that was said in the rooms next door and it was hard to distinguish if someone was in your bathroom on in the room next door. Bathroom was very run down.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. Not only were the staff so friendly, the food was incredible! (Make sure you order in advance as they need about 3 hours to cook it all). The room was spacious with a balcony that looked out over Ella. The staff also organised a guide for us for a walk to... More

The time spent in Rawana Holiday Resort is one of our best memories from the whole trip. First of all - we got a room with a huge terrace (which is common for a couple of rooms located upstairs). The view from the terrace was so beautiful, that we decided to stay for two nights instead of one - as... More

Upon arrival we wanted a room with no stairs as my mother has a sore knee. We were told no- full. But later in the night & also the next morning we found all of those rooms were empty. & had not been booked. The water ran out, so no shower. It wasn't until my husband said we won't pay... More

They also put an extra service charge on the room that hasnt been spoken of before. First time this happened to us in Sri Lanka. You will end up pay much more then you... More

We found this hotel when the one beside it charged too much. The staff from the hotel came running to flag is down. The rooms are spacious, we had two twins together as a king and an extra twin. Bugs nets are a must. Not so much for Mosquitos but I think I saw every other bug on the planet... More
