Nice and clean however not quite as opulent as the pictures taken. The little restaurant was good but the rooms were very basic and the hotel appeared unfinished. Still some landscaping and rooms which needed some work.

The owners were lovely, really welcoming, helpful and keen to tell us all about their hotel. It is centrally located, the room was fairly basic but spacious and comfortable with decent sized, working bathroom. There is a surprisingly large garden at the back with a fabulous pool and jacuzzi - lit blue neon at night with swim up seats at... More

Couldn't fault our two nights at Sundaras Resort. From the second we arrived we were made feel completely at home. All of the staff were exceptionally welcoming. Our time was fairly limited but Hannah was brilliant in organising all our trips out to Pollonawura, Sigiryia and Safari. There is no way we could have squeezed in so much without her... More

We chose this place due to its proximity to dambulla caves, sigiriya and polannaruwa and the very positive reviews on TripAdvisor. Expected a simple but neat and clean place. Since the resort was vacant we were offered an "upgrade". The condition of the upgraded room was terrible. The bathroom door latch was broken, the bathroom window was broken. Thankfully we... More

We're really glad we stayed at sundras resort. It's got a pretty small but great pool and bar if you don't fancy venturing out. If you do they run some very worthwhile excursions - the one to Sigiriya being particularly well designed and enjoyable.

This place is so relaxing. The price is little higher but ok. The food is good must consider more choice on menu. Rooms are Clean and tidy but more to improve in facilities and lighting, in room entertainment lacks can conaider a tv with few international channels. All around good.
