Anthony in fact was a lovely man once you got to know him, he wasn't at all pushy, and it was up... More

I have been to this resort twice. Although we booked a deluxe bungalow which was supposed to be renovated the kettle, safe and other little things were not in a working condition. Bathroom was great with lots of natural light. The bed really comfortable and the room very clean. The resort is a beautiful stretch of land between a lagoon... More

Can't get much fun with sea even hotel located in front of it. Because no reef and waves kinda rough. The location is really nice. Staff is friendly and helpful. Large parking space is also... More

My husband and I stayed here from 29th August for 3 nights to start our honeymoon before travelling to the Maldives (all booked through Virgin). We stayed on an all inclusive basis. We were unsure of what to expect after reading some of the reviews but I can tell you now that we could not fault this place. On arrival... More

We weren't sure what to expect of Sri Lanka or Ranweli, but everything was pretty much perfect. When we arrived at the hotel (it's not really a hotel as such) we were offered to upgrade our room to a 'deluxe suite', although this came at an additional cost it's well worth doing. The beach was clean and amazingly quiet. Most... More

Stayed back in 2009 and 2011. Fantastic staff but a lot of the staff had changed from our previous visit. The staff that were there before remembered us and gave us the same room number 25 which they upgraded to on our previous visit. We thought that was the best room as very close to the sea. (They had been... More

We stayed at ranweli in early august 2016. We found it to be an amazing hotel and we had a truly magical stay. Arriving and then loading our bags onto the ferry was an out of world experience and started our stay off fantastically. The staff at the resort were very welcoming and friendly and treated us very well. We... More
