I have been to the Mahaweli Reach hotel several times for exams, award ceremonies, shows and various other functions. My father has been to the hotel for many conferences and meetings. This hotel is specialized in organizing such functions that involves large gatherings. They have a number of large halls to cater to such events.

We stayed only for one night in this nice hotel. Booking a river view room is a must. It simply reminded me of the view you can get in Venice hotels. The service is excellent. The breakfast had varied choices. The disadvantages were; the size of the room, the humidity smell (since our room was below the ground), the king... More

This was probably our favourite hotel on our tour of Sri Lanka. The grounds are beautiful and the restaurant pool area are very nice. Food was good, the snack menu is very good although pretty much only western food. The buffet was definitely the best of all the hotels we have stayed in. Rooms are large and spacious. Only slight...

The first five minutes at this hotel were great.

We stayed or two days during the Kandy festival of the Tooth Relic so the place was heaving with people - mainly coach parties.
