Dear Mr. Udaya,

Greetings from “Dickwella Resort & Spa”
It was our pleasure to welcome you.

The location of our resort is second to none and having a meal on the wooden deck in the restaurant looking over the breathtaking water splashes on rocks blows your mind away.

Location is very nice, spacious rooms, courteous staff, air conditions and other electrical equipment need to be upgraded!

Kids love the food and the pool.

Triple rooms should be provided with a proper bed not a sofa to sleep!

Overall the hotel is good!

Me with my Husband spent our wedding trip in beatiful island Sri-Lanka in april 2013, and be located in this Hotel one week.
My impressions was very well
This Hotel have attractive location - based in the cape and have 2 nice lagoons both sides (in my photo You can see one of them)! You can go to swim both. Hotel have cozy swimming pool with ocean water alternatively.
Food was very different, very tasty and delicious (we has breakfast and dinner includes), and a lot of seafoods as I like! Desserts was nice too! Hotel offer wood veranda (terrace) with beautiful ocean view, when You can eat! It was really amazing!

Staff was very kindly and helpful
Hotel has cozy and comfortable green area and own security.

The one disadvantage (in my opinion), the meal which Hotel given us for trip to the airport - was not good, but it is the one.

The best prefferens of this Hotel: we has only 10 metres to Ocean from our room (and has separate exit), so I can hear ocean waves every night, and it was really beautiful and unforgettable!!!

With best wishes from Ukraine, Nataliia

I went with my family to lunch at Dickwella Resort last week. It was amazing! The food was exceptional, mouth-watering and delicious. The staff showed us utmost hospitality, the place was neat and tidy.
The Food and Beverage manager did an excellent job.
I would like to recommend this excellent place to my friends for their next visit.
