I spent 14 days at the Dalmanuta garden, and was very well taken care of. From the first enthusiastic mail to my final drop off at Galle. The yoga with Chamal was a good way to start the day. Not too advanced, which suited me fine. The treatments were good. I stayed full board and received approx. 2 hours of... More

I spent 4 nights here at the end of 6 weeks travelling in Sri Lanka. It was a perfect place to end my travels, to unwind and tend to my heart and soul as I had just had some very sad news from home. The staff were very pleasant and attentive, without being suffocating. The food was delicious and I... More

Dear Madam. Dont worry. There must have been some misunderstanding. We are NOT going to raise the fullboard ayurveda price. It is still very low. Warm welcome back. More

We stayed two weeks here and found the room clean and comfortable, the food delicious and good value, the staff friendly and the grounds amazing. The hotel is on the river, next to mangroves and has the feeling of being part of the jungle, with an abundance of plant life and wildlife including water monitors, mongooses, geckos, monkeys and a...

We loved this place. Originally booked for 3 nights but ended up returning after travelling around. The Bungalows are very comfortable and well equipped, 5star. Beautiful clean swimming pool. We loved the boat trip to the beach but would like to see the awning taken down for getting on and off the boat as it is a back breaking experience,... More

This place is a paradise, compared to anywhere in Sri Lanka this is tranquil and peaceful mini-resort to chill down. Only 9 beautiful and well furnished bungalows. Bed is the most comfortable I had by far in any accommodation. Amazing spacious gardens. Food is delicious. Had a cooking class with Athula which was fun. The guys in general are very... More

Very cosy place and relaxing place. Due to limited number of bungalows, you will feel almost like having the place to yourself. Nice pool area. The hotels restaurant has wonderful location next to the river. Perfect start after a long flight.

We stayed in "Dalmanuta Gardens" for 1 day in March 2016 - and that was 1 day too long: The Location of the hotel directly at the river is nice, the food in the Restaurant was good as well as their wellness offers (full body massage). The employees have been very nice too, but the management was arrogant and seemed... More

Dear Sir and Madam. Thank you for your review after only one night stay. Some guests stay more than one night, even up to 28 nights. We are happy that you liked the Location, the Food and the Massage. Each of Dalmanutas 9 rooms is standalone cottage/house, right on the ground, with a private garden in a big nature park.... More
