Ravana Gardens is a truly a Sri Lankan sustainable experience. They make sure the sustainable concept is practiced to the maximum. From the hotel setting, rooms, organic food all are based on suitable concept. Make sure you visit only if you are ready to experience the local flavor. There are no buffets but the local food spread is excellent. You would be able to experience sri Lankan organic food dishes and may be experience for the first time in your life. Pathal roti, kalupol kaju, chicken ambul thiyal to name a few. The rooms do not have AC but the cooler fan and natural breeze will keep you cool. Visited in December but it's naturally cool anyways. The common areas are so cosy with the lobby area giving you enough space to relax. The almost private like beach is spacious but may not be the best place to have dip. But there is a place down the beach at a short distance where it is safe to have a dip. The short stroll to the Ussangoda nature park is a nice hike. The location is a unique place where you can witness sunrise and sunset both at the beach since you can see the eastern and western sea. The staff is very courteous and go out of the way to make your stay a memorable. They organized a Picnic, cooking demonstration, kite flying and a dinner on the beach. Would defenietly visit again.

We arrived at Ravana Gardens on the 1st Jan 2020. The road to the hotel is gravel in a bad state needing much attention. The welcome was very warm but unusually full payment is required before entering the premises. We arrived after lunch and relaxed in the warm surroundings. Since it is an eco hotel we were told that only chicken and fish would be served. However we never saw any fish during our whole stay. It was rice and curry for lunch and dinner which was not appetizing at all. My cook at home makes better rice and curry. After we protested they promised string hoppers for dinner on the second night. It was a very ordinary meal. Meals were served very late and we had to sit around waiting to be served. On the third day they said they would give us hoppers for lunch. We asked for one hopper to be served for our toddler which they promised to give in 15 mins but took 45 mins by which time the baby had gone to sleep hungry. We did not get food until another 45 mins and the service was such that we had to eat one at a time. To add insult to injury the hoppers were served with lunu miris only. When I asked for some curry like chicken curry they said we had not requested any!!!! Is this their idea of a hopper meal? The lunumiris was ground onion and chili as served in a wayside boutique. We were so disappointed we decided to go out for dinner even though they promised us a sea food dinner. At this point we did not want to trust them any more. With regard to service, other than for the one steward who was from the nearby village the rest were very indifferent to our needs. We had to insist to have our rooms cleaned or we would have been in very dirty rooms for the whole stay. The positives were the close proximity of the hotel to Ridiyagama Safari Park, Udawalawe Park, Kalametiya bird sanctuary. Other than that I cannot understand why they charge so much for the poor services and low quality food provided.

From the point of initial inquiry to the check out from hotel our entire experience was seamless and it has been one of the best customer services and hospitality we’ve had. My husband and I enjoyed staying at Ravana Garden very much, and the food, excursions, the beach, rooms and the spa was delightful! We wanted to appreciate especially the services from Lakshitha who took extra effort to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. Thank you for helping to make a memorable birthday celebration for my husband. It’s been beyond expectations, especially the dining experience by the beach under the stars. Once again, thanking you and the Ravana Garden team for a great holiday. Best wishes, Anjali

I stayed at Ravana Garden for about 5 days. The ammenities are excelent: the hotel is brand new, very comfortable and clean. The staff is really nice and friendly. The food is good and fresh. When I arrived, I had a gratitis problem, so the staff adjuted the menu accordingly. They even did some research about gastritis in order to fix the menu.
