We had a fantastic stay at this fantabulous hotel just over a week ago. As usual, the ever lovely Ashok Kumar greeted us at the lobby with his ever-usual and handsome smile. Our tiredness, after driving for several hours simply disappeared with this beautiful welcome gesture. The Check-in process was pretty efficient and we were escorted to the room; wow the room was arranged simply immaculately. This was not a surprise for me as I always knew that Maalu Maalu had maintained high standards and Theme Resorts in general had maintained their hotels exceptionally well. One thing that I have always admired at this hotel is the great hospitality of the staff and how delicious and mouthwatering the food is. At the restaurant, we were greeted and escorted to the table by Restaurant supervisor Gayan. He was so welcoming and friendly. Next was the ever so smiling waitress Yogeshwari who I remembered from 4 years ago as well. Wow…she recognised me as well…she even served us food to the table and gave us special Tea-Tarik after the meal. Viraji (trainee waitress from Kirinda, Matara) was also very efficient, friendly and attentive. At the breakfast, there was no bacon and the F&B Manager Janaka especially ensured that we had bacon on our table; thank you very much for your kindness and for giving special attention to us as guests. Your courtesy and care was highly appreciated. Finally, when I wanted help putting fuel to the vehicle, the bellboy Gandhi Dasan and Garden worker Sudarshan showed up and helped us immediately. I mean, we are speechless about how kind the staff of Maalu Maalu is. This bunch of guys thoroughly deserve a treat for their wonderful work. We shall surely visit this beautiful, soulful hotel just to feel the homely feel again. All the very best for the Christmas and the upcoming New Year 2023. Dr. Sakda Dharmadasa and Family!!!

It is always with great pleasure that I regularly return to this hotel either during a tour on the East Coast or for a one-week stay. The management and staff are very welcoming and efficient. It's with pleasure that I find some members of the staff from one stay to another. The room is spacious and well equipped. The TV had no foreign channels, perhaps because of the current crisis in the country. For this new stay, the WIFI was very good, in the room, in the restaurant and around the swimming pool. The catering was good but a bit limited in the a la carte menu. Fortunately buffets are sometimes organized when the hotel has enough customers. The hotel is ideally placed in the middle of the bay. The beach is large, very clean and supervised by lifeguards. You have to keep walking to the left, after the fishing boats to find a wild and magnificent environment. A big thank you to the pool staff who prepared a deckchair for me every morning. This new stay was up to the previous ones and I will definitely return.

A beautiful small resort with five star service. We stayed in a family villa that was nicely sized for our family of four. The food is good, location and pool great whilst the service is second to none. Especially the pool attendant and snorkelling guide who went above and beyond every time. Great for families and those simply looking to relax. Just hope they see more international tourists soon. We experienced no difficulties due to the economic situation and urge people to visit!

We were at Maalu Maalu for an off-site meeting for about 5 days. Absolutely loved the place. Very professional staff with a "pleasant" attitude. I remember Shashini (not sure if I got the name right) at the buffet area always greeting us with a smile and being efficient. Special thanks to Mr. Ashok for going above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Good food. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The best part was the sea view from the hotel since it is located so close to the hotel. It was a very calm and serene environment. Enjoyed the early morning walks by the sea. All the arrangements for the business meeting were also on point. Overall, had a great experience and will definitely visit again!
