“"Great Place With Fantastic Staff"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Good choice for those wanting a very comfortable base to visit Dambulla, Sigiriya and the "elephant parks " of Minneriya and Kaudulla. You could visit the Polonnaruwa and Anuradhapura ruins from here, very good service, relaxed pleasent surroundings, excellent food..
We will definitely visit again.

My sincere appreciation goes out to the management, staff of the Grand Kalundawa as they have achieved a high level of guest service.

Keep it up!

The hotel is based in some wetlands and spread over a large piece of land. The hotel is very different to anything else we stayed in and for that reason we would recommend it. It is a very romantic setting. Room was clean and tidy.
This is the second time I have been to this hotel and on both occasions I have been blown away by the beauty of the property. Worth every penny you pay. The service is fantastic. Highly recommended.
A beautiful setting, wonderful service and excellent food contributed to a memorable stay.

This is an amazing, calm and beautiful place to visit at least once in a life time. No such words to explain the hospitality of staff members, facilities they provided as well as quality of services for their guests. Never had such concern from any other place earlier in my life.

This is a super place for to enjoy and stay away from the rush life. they treat me well and I was extremely satisfied with the service and also the environmental view is so relaxing and also they have arranged places to see and visit around the city. This is absolutely a good place for nature lover people who willing to spend their vacation with the nature and relax their mind. Also this place is perfectly safe and staff was very friendly and supportive. I just have to say me and my family enjoyed lot.

Grand kalundawa is very spacious, comfortable and lovely place. beds were comfortable and new, the bathroom was clean and had a hot shower. homely atmosphere. hotel aren't that far from the main road, and it is very easy access to many interesting places to visit.
Had a wonderful refreshing experience with the swimming pool

Dinner was fantastic so we ate there for two of our nights and were really impressed. We loved English breakfast they offered us by beautiful Dambuluoya with cool breeze. The service was excellent from all the staff.Enjoyed a lot at here.I feel that lots of improvements can be done here.Hoping to have our next gathering also at this comfortable and lovely place where we feel that we are at home...away from home

I was there with my family last week. This place provide you a wonderful environment to relax your mind and body. Specially the water front view is one of the best in the country. The hotel staff helped us to spend our holiday in the best way. They arranged us best places around the hotel to dine.

Room Tip: Please call the reception who will be helped with kind words.
