“Damanuta Gardens Bentota”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

We spent 3 delightful days at Dalmanuta Gardens. They only have 9 rooms so the service is very personal. The rooms are large and spacious.It is in a magical setting on the lagoon with five separate cabanas projecting over the river where you can dine. The food is excellent and again very personal as the chef will source your fresh fish in the local market and specifically cook to your request.. The setting is peaceful and tranquil and Dalmanuta are happy to arrange a 15 min boat or tuk tuk to get you to Bentota beach at a moderate cost. Bentota beach is stunning. The Ayuveydic centre is good but basic.
This offers exceptional value for money.

Looking for tranquility, profound serenity without giving up excellent service, brilliant food and superb ayurvedic treatments?..... Look no further!!!!
We combined our stay at Dalmanuta with a 4-day tour up the Island arranged by the hotel staff.
Highly recommended!

Great location, beautiful surroundings, clean rooms and friendly stuff! Plus, the food was the best I ate in Sri Lanka! A really magical place to visit and relax!
Also, they have a private boat that it takes you to Bentota beach every morning.

There are many good reviews regarding this hotel, but being here and enjoying this superb resort it simply tops everything. But even the most beautyful hotel would pale without having a professional and friendly staff- this is one the highlights here: the most friendly and attentive staff we ever encountered:
The waiter, Suresh, treated us like VIP's all the time, always thinking ahead about how we would like to dine and aranged our diner table with lots of love (flower, animal shaped napkins).
The chef, Athula, allowes us to be present in the kitchen while preparing a delicious meal for us.
The cleaning staff did suprize with their care for every small detail in the room and made us feel comfortable and homely.
The ayurveda doctor prepared a medicine for me as soon as he got informed by the staff that i've got bitten by ants.
So Dalmanuta Garden truly is paradise to us - a Garden Eden!


I could continue with many other exaples, but the best way to convice yourself that this is real is coming here and experiancing all this.

Room Tip: Room nr 12 has a large garden!!!

We stayed in Dalmanuta Gardens for 4 nights and had a wonderful time. It was like being in a little family that couldn't do enough for you; including Suresh our attentive waiter and Artulla the excellent chef. The accommodation was 5 star, clean and spacious with a little garden and terrace outside. I didn't do the whole Ayurvedic package but I did have massages and relaxed by the pool. I also had a wonderful trip to Galle (on the wettest day of the year) with visits to a temple, a moonstone mine and a very colonial hotel with our charming manager Chamal.
All in all I felt restored and on a high from the benefits. Strongly recommended to anyone who wants to be off the beaten tourist track and find a balance between total relaxation and interesting visits.

We stayed at Dalmanuta Gardens for one relaxing week. For the time of year we had great weather and found the bungalow very comfortable and clean. The staff were amazing from Suresh our attentive waiter (even his chinese language skills were good!!) to the chef (great food) the cleaners, in fact the whole team took care of us so well.
Set on he Bentota river with wonderful gardens and swimming pool - idyllic!
For anyone searching for a relaxing holiday this is the place! Great boat trip to the fabulous nearby beach.
We ventured out to Galle and Kandy with the hotel driver who was very informative and took great care of us. Great trips which we thoroughly enjoyed.
Home from home for us!!

Feels like being home.. warm welcome, friendly staff (but not too much), super Aryuvedic food!! I I would not recommend the massage, might depend on the masseur.. But all in all its a lovely place to stay! Not a touristic place. There a pavillons to stay in, lots of private space.
