Dont ever make mistake of booking arika hotels. You will be spammed for lifetime if they get your number. I am attaching block list of arica number. If you block one number than they will spam you with another number. Just choose peace of mind over some cheap hotel.
We enjoyed the fresh air, as the hotel in the middle of forest. Very quiet and relaxing. Staff are very friendly and kind. The food was delicious and yummy. The pool is clean. For sure I would recommend this hotel. We feel just like home. Thank you to all staff and to the hotel manager.
We stayed in Arika villa for one night at the start of May 2022. Not only was the place beautiful, with large rooms and a gorgeous pool, set amongst the trees, but the welcome and attention we received was second to none. We were treated to the most delicious Sri Lankan meal of about 12 different curries, all homemade on site. The food at Arika was in fact probably some of the best food we ate in our 9 day trip to Sri Lanka. I would recommend this place to anyone who visits the area.
We had a lovely stay at Arika. The service was excellent and the staff were friendly and hospitable. The food was plentiful and delicious. This is a great setting and the pool was very good to have at hand. Big rooms with sounds of the forest outside.
Beautiful, peaceful and charming hotel. The staff was super helpful and the owner was helping us with everything. I truly recomendable. The food was very good every day and they can prepare in the way you like the most. Is close to Golden Temple and they can arrange everything for you.
We had an incredible stay at Arika Villa dambulla . Beautiful Rooms, delicious food . The best part however were the incredibly friendly and hardworking staff who made our stay perfect. Especial thanks to Mr Nishendra Fernando (Gm)who was very attentive to us ensuring all our requests were attended to in a timely fashion . highly recommend this place to anyone.
Friendly staff. Lovely large rooms. Great service. Well lit pool area for evening dining under the stars too, the food was different all three nights with a a great leave of service and superb taste. They even welcomed us at 5am with tea yand coffee. But they went the extra mile and made us takeaway breakfast at 4am when we left early for a hike. Great work team!
We stayed here for 3 nights. From the moment we got here the staff were so welcoming, meeting us at 4am with tea and coffees after a long flight from England. The rooms were so lovely and spacious, the hotel is so beautiful. The staff were so helpful and friendly during our stay and went above and beyond to ensure that everything was up to our expectations. Thank you for a fantastic stay!
We really enjoyed our stay at your boutique villa. The rooms were large, well-appointed, and very comfortable. There are few regular maintenance pending specially in the toilets, once those are done, rooms will be perfect. Food was fabulous and value for money. The presentation of food was on par with a 5-star hotel. I believe all of us enjoyed all the meals that were served. Service was exceptional; all the staff members were up to the tasks assigned to each of them and went out of the way to do their best for us. Overall, it was a very pleasant & enjoyable stay.
Service, personalization, attitude. I’m sorry Nishandra and team for this late review. Better late than never. Thank you for reserving the entire villa for our family gathering, hosting us for two nights, and for providing the best service for money. Thanks for being extra nice to our toddlers - making them the food they want, arranging all sort of amenities our complex family requested ! It was a nice, pleasant and memorable stay for us. Hope your chief of kitchen’s family and their newborn are safe! Pass our thanks to each and everyone of your staff, for their commitment and super service. Wish you guys all the best!
