I enjoyed my stay at the Ravana Ridge very much, especially the staff and the location. It is a very peaceful area. I came with a large group of students, about 15 of us stayed there, and the staff (front desk, security guards, and cook) were all very accommodating and helpful. They helped to arrange trips to surrounding towns and... More

Stayed here for 4 nights and 3 days. It was an extremely pleasant experience. Clean rooms, wonderful owner, pleasant surrounding. The staff were exactly the way we expected - they were invisible until we wanted them. That gives you the freedom to enjoy the holiday, the way you wanted.

Stayed here with our family (of 5) for 4 nights in Feb 2014 and wished we could have stayed for longer. The room was a great size (with a double and 3 singles) with fans and the hotel was enclosed in a small courtyard so very safe. The site was just a short walk (100m) to a little beach, with... More

I stayed here with a group of 20 and it couldn't have been more comfortable. The ocean is literally 15 feet in front of the place, town is close by, the food is great, the prices are fair and I felt safe. Young or old, this is the place to stay if you're visiting Polhena or the surrounding area.

Our stay here was fantastic, it was a very relaxing and pleasant experience. On a quiet side road with its own beaches and small places to sit and eat, but very near the main road that allows access to larger beaches and to Anuradhapura. Iroshan was extremely accommodating and the staff met our every need. Very nice people, very relaxing... More

We stayed here with a large group of people -- Iroshan and his family were some of the most accommodating and friendly people we met over the course of our entire trip. The location is wonderful -- there are beautiful beaches within a few minutes walk in either direction and you're just a few minutes outside of downtown. The area... More

This was absolutely our favorite place during a month-long trip around Sri Lanka. All the staff at Ravana Ridge was extremely helpful, friendly and honest. For a large group (20 guests), they managed everything beautifully and Iroshan was very careful and organized when it came to paying each of our bills. Anything we needed (scuba, surfing, tuktuks into town) was... More

Ravana Ridge was an unexpected delight for our large group of twenty university students and faculty. We arrived at night to fairy lights twinkling in garlands over outdoor tables set for the first of several feasts cooked by Iroshan's mother. Absolutely some of the finest food we had in Sri Lanka! Iroshan, his family, and staff were the perfect hosts.... More

Located right ON the beach, this place is very good to base camp for Galle, Yala national park, etc... Polhena beach is just 2 minutes away, and the nearest bus stop Polhena junction is at 10 minutes walking distance, where you get lot of buses to a lot many destinations. Matara railway station is also close by, and tuk tuks... More
