We recently spent 10 days in this lovely Resort in Sri Lanka. We purchased an all inclusive package through Luxury Escapes and had a lovely relaxing time there. The venue, the food and the staff were all first class. As mentioned to the General Manager, when requested, the only things that were not 100% were only very minor. Such as,... More

Absolutely loved the resort. Loved everything from the room, to the facilities, to the food, to the staff. The kiddy zone was lovely so we could leave the kids there and we could do stuff without them. The staff at the kiddy zone Indrani was fantastic. Will definitely visit again!!

This allowed us to spend the money on the "all-inclusive" package the hotel offered which was very good. We did a few excursions like a boat trip on the river (my daughter had her birthday on the day and the... More

So glad we got the "All Inclusive / Full Board" package with my growing boys, we all loved the room, food and facilities. All the staff were polite and very hospitable from the swim up bar guys, pool guy, cleaners and restaurant staff. Totally recommend this for a relaxing holiday, plenty to do with the water sports and recommend a... More

Could not fault the hotel staff as they where all friendly and nothing you asked was ever to much, rooms cleaned daily, dinner every night varied and the hotel was stunning with great views. The mini boat journey across to the hotel from reception was an... More

We spent a week at Ceylands with friends on the all inclusive package. The resort is large and a perfect base for exploring the area or sitting back and relaxing without leaving the compound. Pros The food at 360, Cafe Beim and the Ceylon club - something for everyone with loads of choices. The rooms, spacious clean and quiet with... More
