To escape from the freezing English mid winter to the wonderful even temperatures of Sri Lanka is something we have done four times. Each time we have stayed at different resorts and this year we chose the Pandanus Beach Resort and Spa which was a smaller 80+ rooms All Inclusive hotel. All the staff were really brilliant and made us...

The view was really nice and the beach was good. I found the pool to be very nice and relaxing. Rooms were okay, but in some rooms the...

We stayed here after our round trip in Sri Lanka. The extra bed was not really comfortable for sleep / I am 195 cm/, sky lounge closed during our stay /weather permitting/ and RED flag every day /strong, big waves/ The beach amazing, clean, long sandy stretch. Food OK, service good

We landed in Sri Lanka after a long flight and hectic wedding weekend, we arrived at Pandanus late in the evening to be greeted by friendly staff, a chilled drink and some dinner brought to our room - unexpected considering it was so late.

The hotel is beautifully situated on the beach and we had a excellent view from our balcony. Structurally our room was great, lovely view, big rooms and nice bathroom.
