We have visited to vijaya resort two months ago and had good time with wonderful locations.natural pools were amazing. Staff were brilliant and took care of us with each and every time.we visited for one night with group of 35 members of our family. All of them were enjoying from the beginning until we leave. We had dinner,breakfast and lunch with lots of selections and varieties of food and food was excellent. I should mention lady called geethma who was incharge for everything of that place and she was brilliant and very helpful.to make our stay memorable,she did everything for us what she can do to keep us happy.with us i am sure she was having difficult time with us 😂 but she managed everything. Also mr.perera,manager of that place was very helpful. But the pool facility i would say they should have to do something to the pool tile grouting as couple of our family members had injuries.but that wasnt a big issue to us. To have value for money you spend,VIJAYA HOLIDAY RESORT is one of the best place . THANK YOU.....

It’s a beautiful cool place to enjoy your day. The have different kind of rooms or camping sites and water pool 🏊🏽‍♀️. Also they have activities like hiking 🥾, tracking, boat 🚣🏽‍♀️ riding. And the have different playgrounds. So you can enjoy with games. They have few party halls. Also you can get wedding in there. And finally they have full size dining hall and good meal 🥘. And also they provide restaurants facilities for outside customer which situated at main gate. This place is full from nature fact and you have to save it for others.

This place is good for a relaxation and some activities with a group. We visited on the 15th Sunday for a day outing. Unfortunately it was raining and we were confined to indoors. However managed to take a walk around. Honestly this place require a lot of maintenance as some huts and sheds are not kept up to the mark. There is one indoor hall with tables but there were a lot of Bat's droppings on the tables and chairs and sitting was a question. The buffet is not great and there were nothing to boast on, just a normal spread of limited items (chicken, fish and vegetables) . It is not worth for the price they have quoted. I must mention that the staff is very friendly. However a re-visit to place will be re-thinkable given a lot of other properties that are available in similar places.

As you can see other people’s reviews & Wijaya Holiday Resort Website, yes this resort has so many facilities. But the quality & the standard of those facilities are not up to the expected level. Which means at the end of the day, most of those are useless even though we paid for a full package. 1) The main pool. 1.1) One end of the pool is 3 feet & the other end is 6 feet. There is only one board mentioning the 6 feet depth & for a guest, at once it’s a bit hard to identify which side has the 6 feet depth. Management should see the world standards of mentioning the depth of the pool for the safety of guests. 1.2) The Lifeguard: The person who worked as a lifeguard can’t swim. Accidentally, one old man moved to that 6 feet area & he shouted to save his life. Instead of jumping into the water & save the old man's life, all he (lifeguard) could do was, through a long pipe to the water & asked that old man to catch one end of the pipe & pulled him out of the water. Luckily, that old man could grab the pipe. Otherwise, it will be the end of that person. 1.3) Most importantly the lifeguard doesn’t know how to treat to guests at all. After that incident, he shouted to that old person’s family unnecessarily, just to justify what he did. 1.4) Broken/sharp edges of the tiles: Some tiles are broken & some tiles edges are so sharp. I also experienced several sharp tile edges & few people got to cut their fingers & legs while I was in the pool. 2) Natural Pool: the water is not clean & no one went there. Otherwise, the scenery is nice. 3) Kids Pool: the water is not clean enough. 4) Food: The quality of the food is excellent. But the staff failed to arrange the foods on time. They arranged the dinner at around 9 PM, breakfast at around 8:30 AM & bed tea at around 8 AM (even though I requested the bed tea at 6:30 am). 5) The Quality of Service: most of the staff members have a passion to serve better. But they don’t know have much better knowledge to identify the guest's expectations & change accordingly. Therefore we had changed according to their level & spend the time to enjoy the stay without making any trouble. 6) Boat Ride: only one boat was available for more than 350 guests. 7) Bicycles: there were 5 or 6 bicycles, but only one bicycle had enough air pressure in the wheels to ride. Plus Points: Car Park, the quality of the foods, Free Internet (Only at the reception area) indoor games (table Tanis, Pool, carom) & playgrounds for outdoor games. Note for the Management: The hotel management has to make a proper plan to daily monitor & maintain the quality & standards of the entire resort including all the offered facilities. Otherwise, as we experienced, even though so many facilities are available, none of those was useful as described on the resort’s website.
