Only had one night here before hot air ballooning early the next morning but we made the most of it. Amazing place. Beautiful pool and swim up bar. Bartenders are incredible and so friendly. Breakfast was good, dinner was good. Monkeys roam free it’s a really nice place to stay. Special thanks to Siddu. We will come back for sure!

My wife and I stayed at Sundaras for two nights we were welcomed by Elizabeth with a lovely smile :-) and tured out we had a lot in common in terms of travelling stories ! this was a nice start to our stay but have to commend all the staff from the gentleman that helped us with our bags to Sanath and the boys at the Pool bar area, the room was clean and nothing was to much for the staff there was a bit of work going on the complex but nothing to ruin our stay so I would recommend this hotel so thankyou Elizabeth and the rest of staff and hope to meet you or our next travels.

My girlfriend and I spent 4 days at sundaras. For £33 a night you cant go wrong. For sri lanka i found this to be one of the better hotels we stayed in. Clean, spacious hotel in a decent location. 4 nights is probably too long to stay in Dambula for travellers tho. The pool is a class place to chill and the pool bar is a lovely feature. The pool is surrounded by trees which i found very re flective of the sri lankan jungles. If the pool isnt enough for you, you can also relax by getting a message. We got a full body message on the day we landed and it was the best! A full body message only cost us 21USD The receptionist siddu was a gentle man, very helpful and no request was too much. We organised to visit Pidurangala and Sigiria rock with the hotel. I woukd highly recommend doing these tours with the hotel. Our tour guid was a lovely man, took us for a nice authentic breakfast at a local family's home and showed us a nice view of both Piduranagala and sigiria.

I would definitely recommend staying at Sundaras Resort. My stay was amazing, welcoming and fun. Sindu at front desk is fabulous, checked us in early and was so welcoming and attentive. The room was clean and spacious. Pool side was relaxing with a great happy hour! If you want a mixture of culture, local safari trips and relaxation with happy hour, this is the place for you!
