“A top class hotel situated by the banks of th Mahaweli river”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

A good pool, generally good service and food. A fair way out of town but for those not on a budget a safe and relaxing place to stay with a milder climate than the coast since Kandy is 2500m above sea level.

Stayed February 2014, traveled with friends

We continued our Archers Coach tour by spending two nights at the Mahaweli Reach Hotel. Check-in, Reception Area, Room, services all excellent.
The hotel is ideally placed for a visit to Kandy and the Temple of the Tooth.
We ate in the buffet style restaurant which was plentiful with an amazing choice of local and International dishes.
This was a very quiet hotel with good quality, clean chalets and we slept well. The bar area is sumptuous and edges onto the illuminated gardens and Pool Areas. The hotel is set directly above the Mahaweli River with excellent views of the surrounding countryside.
The breakfast was a mixture of Sri Lankan and European food and was all well presented and in copious measures. This hotel created a good example of Sri Lankan food and hospitality.

We stayed here for a night on Valentines day, perfect location, we got a room facing the river, which was beautiful, check in was smooth, room was amazing also when we went out for 2-3 hours our bed was made again :) Good Housekeeping.
We had the Bufffet dinner at night, whch was amazing, huge choice of cuisine and there was lovely live music playing, morning buffet breakfast also was lovely, a lot of variety.
Sad we only stayed a night here.
Definately recommended......Great staff, Good very well mantained rooms, nice view, lovely pool.......

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the river view

We have stayed in this hotel on previous visits to Sri lanka and on this occasion we went to dinner there. The hotel is situated a short tuk tuk drive (20 minutes) out of Kandy town and is aside the Mahaweli River. Poolside dining in the evening is wonderful as the grounds are illuminated giving a superb setting. The buffets are extensive and cater for all tastes. The place has a very nice pool, good fitness facilities and it is well equipped for business travellers as well as tourists who are there for relaxation. We recommend it is a well run establishment with friendly efficient staff for travellers who are happy to be a short distance out of town.

This is a luxury hotel in a beautiful setting. The pool and grounds are lovely, and the restaurant area around the pool makes good use of the setting. At night the pool and trees are illuminated making a magical setting for dinner. Food is good too, with plenty of choice.

The room was large and stylishly furnished. I liked the modern control of the lights and aircon. Wi-Fi was free and worked well.

Staff were elegantly dressed and attentive.

Stayed here for two nights but could happily have stayed longer. A superb hotel.

Nice hotel , lovely setting, great food and staff in the restaurant , the variety offered is amazing . definately put on several pounds if you stay here longer! Good staff, nice bar with very chilled beers and attentive service staff throughout. i cant complain about this hotel at all , it works and delivers what it is supposed to. If going for evening meal try and reserve a table near the open pool area as it can get booked up quickly! Not far from town.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from main reception , as large tourist coaches approach and offload sometimes no...
