My sister & I stayed here for 10 nights from the 4th of July. This is truly a place to kick back. It's not an all singing, all dancing resort but the location is unique, the peace is wonderful & the staff are great & a joy to talk to if you make the effort. We intended a beach bum... More

We booked a tour to the elephant orphanage, herbs/spices and tea factory and Kandi- bhuddist temple(through Virgin £60pp). The tour was amazing... More

We stayed at the Ranweli for 4 nights after 5 days of touring with Genuine Srilankans. The resort is very quiet, which suited us fine. We upgraded to deluxe room and they were beautiful and clean. We were on a half board basis and did not upgrade to all inclusive because what we wanted was not included in the deal.... More
