I stayed at Centauria Lake Resort about 10 years back. At that time I was not impressed by its rooms, the service or the food. Yet, I realized that it had lot of potential, mainly because of its location bordering the scenic Chandrika Wewa (lake). When I visited Centurauria recently, I was pleasantly surprised to see a positive change to... More

This was the 2nd hotel of our expedition tour around Sri Lanka, and this Hotel was a gem of a find after going down one of the most rough area we found. The Hotel overlooks a fantastic Lake and the views are lovely. We were originally put in one of the Attic rooms(like servants quarters) but as there was a... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a 4 day tour in Sri Lanka. Upon approach, the hotel appears impressive and the reception area was relatively clean and welcoming. Our room was OK but we were immediately concerned about the cleanliness as the tiled floor was dirty with marks and black hairs. Unfortunately, the bathroom hadn't been cleaned well at... More

This is the best place to stay in embilipitiya. Rooms are very clean .staff were friendly. But only thing is food is very expensive. So you should buy room only and you can get food in sarathchandra restaurant at cheaper price .

We stayed one night and can't really complain. Rooms have been spotless, as well as the rest of the Hotel. It isn't the most modern hotel. Nevertheless, it is in good shape. Wouldn't mind going there again.

The room was fine and clean if slightly dated. The food was good at dinner and breakfast but the restaurant was full of flies and the staff stood around looking at piles of empty plates that needed clearing. Flies again in the soulless bar- so bad we took our drinks and went elsewhere to drink them. Everywhere else we have... More

This Hotel is one of the finest Hotels we have ever stayed in, throughout the world. Beautiful lakeside setting, peaceful, away from the madding crowd. The staff are so helpful, friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. Indeed there is very little to do in this area but with such beautiful gardens, lovely swimming pool, we just read...

Authentic Sri Lankan Cuisine & Ayurveda Medical Center are just two of the many great features this hotel offers... Room service is good as well. Being one of the leading hotels in Embilipiiya, the hotel offers safari trips to Udawalawe and Yala national parks.... Two great tourists attractions that everyone visiting the country should stop by.

We arrived late after visiting the Yala park. We arrived with quite a bunch of people. They knew of our arrival, but still the food was cold. The room was a disappointment. Old furniture, only one point to charge cellphones, cameras etc. The shower hardly produced any water. Should have had wifi, but found no signal whatsoever. Next morning, still... More
