We booked with Virgin Holidays and we must admit that prior to arriving we were a tad worried having looked on here. Despite that however we were pleasantly surprised.
As everyone on here seems to focus on the negative allot I might as well cover...More
It is a nice property with many things to do. The staff is nice. Rooms are mostly cottages and a bit dated. Food is good except in the pool bar when we were there yesterday.
Bring to the notice of the management the following -...More
We have just returned from our honeymoon after a 2 week stay here and can honesty say, it was fabulous. If you read Claires review on 2/1/18 she says it it in a nutshell. Spot on! We booked all our trips with Antony and was...More
We had our third trip to Ranweli in mid December, and will certainly be returning again. The flight from the UK is a long one, but arriving at Ranweli's car park and stepping onto the ferry raft makes the many hours of travel faded away....More

WE would not have considered taking a trip to The Elephant Ophange from Ranweli as it would be about a 2.5 hour journey each way. It is also somewhere that is not advised to visit due to the treatment of the elephants - not actually an orphanage as such.
Many other places that trips go to are even further away. We had a tour for a number of nights with a car and driver, but if you want to use Ranweli as a main base you could still go off for a one or two night tour and return to Ranweli after that (car and driver is the way to do it - the good hotels have driver accommodation, so you would not have to pay extra for that.
Colombo well worth a visit IMO and that is only an hour os so away from Ranweli and you could even use a train to get there, but would need a tuk tuk or something to get you to the train station.

We did this tour with Walker tours as recommended by the Virgin rep. I believe it was about £80 for the 2 of us including a couple of other stop offs. Ok Anthony offers the same trip slightly cheaper but we preferred to be in a nice air conditioned taxi rather than a minibus . We had our own personal guide ( Ask for Adrian he was brilliant) we also went to the temple of the tooth relic on the same day and our guide was to knowledgeable . Enjoy your trips
