we were in quarantine at Occidental Paradise Dambulla (Green paradise) and we were very satisfied with every aspect of this hotel although we were in quarantine. Staff was really friendly , helpful and knowledgeable. The room was very spaces and had two floor with all necessities needed. Breakfast ,lunch and dinner was substantial and was bursting with flavors. About 17km away from the town situated in a very quite peaceful place with amazing views and gorgeous animals at your doorstep(peacocks, Bengal motiors, monkeys, squirrels ,etc.).the hotel also surprised my sons with a surprise birthday cake on his birthday. Plz come and enjoy

Hotel's Favorite
I loved this hotel ! I was on a tour so was only able to stay 2 nights - and left wishing I could have stayed at least another couple of nights. The room was spacious - on two floors - bigger than my house back in the UK. The staff were lovely, couldn't do enough for you, wonderful pool and the restaurant !! The food was fantastic, 'home made' ice cream was the best I had the whole trip and other wonderful dishes. The restaurant staff were so proud and pleased when I complimented them on the quality of the dishes.

Since beginning of the year we booked this property, but after corona I called them and postponed the visit. Hotel has informed me hotel will operate again in November. Eventually I request a refund. They had a refund but not fully. Why these type of hotel behave like these? It is not our fault to postpone or reopening

This is a high quality hotel in a very peaceful, relatively remote area a few miles away from Dambulla town. The resort is spacious with chalets nestled in tropical surroundings. Our room was a fully featured two floor chalet (downstairs is the bedroom and bathroom and there's a stairway to a mezzanine floor which has its own air conditioning and sofa). There's also a nice sized pool and a gym in the grounds. The main building and reception is where you'll find the bar and restaurant. We had breakfast and dinner the restaurant and it was really very good indeed. Depending on the numbers of guests it'll either be a full buffet of Sri Lankan and continental dishes with a cook station where the chef will prepare fresh dishes for you, or an a la carte menu. All of the staff, without exception, are excellent - friendly and so helpful making for a wonderful stay.

Let me firstly give you some context surrounding our stay in this hotel. We were either wise or foolish enough to go on holiday to Sri Lanka just before the UK went into lockdown. We decided to go because our travel agent would not reschedule the holiday and we would have lost our money. Most of our excursions have been cancelled as tourist attractions have been closed down. The Paradise Resort and Spa hotel was virtually empty of guests when we arrived. We have stayed here for three days with another couple from the UK who we are travelling with. The hotel is really beautiful. The location is beautiful and all the rooms are chalets. Ours could easily accommodate a small family. The staff have been exceptional, especially in these very difficult times. They have all taken measures to provide a safe environment free from Coronavirus. They have provided an excellent service. Our room housekeeper Senerath has been very polite, courteous and professional, attended to our needs and requests. The restaurant staff have been excellent too, despite this difficult situation. They have done their very best to look after us. We will be sad to leave this hotel despite a global pandemic and a worsening situation worldwide. Thank you Paradise Resort and Spa Hotel for a wonderful stay.
