Heritance Ahungalla

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 27, 2013

The hotel is of an excellent standard - first class attentive and friendly staff, lovely swimming pool and located on the beach. This is an ideal place to spend a few days after a tour of the island which we had done. The food is varied and of an excellent quality, but do watch out for the curries - the staff claimed they were 'medium' but far hotter than the average vindaloo in the UK!

Very nice hotel! We was for the first time in Asian and we are very happy about our hotel choice.
Excellent location, beach is a pure paradise, alot of smiles, sun, fruits, ocean, a very good library with books and magazines in many languages, very funny animals around the pools and great service!
A special Thanks to Mr.Nihal and his staff for making our stay absolutly perfect!
We wanna alredy come back to Heritance!

But we missed a russian chanel on TV and more varied breakfast (it was the same every day!) to stay on Heritance longer.

Room Tip: The best is on the 3-th floor ! Perfect ocean view !

Had a beautiful holiday at the Heritance Ahungalla with my family. Nothing prepared me for the warm welcome and the hospitable and warm reception of the staff at this five-star resort located on the southern beaches of Sri Lanka. My reservation was efficiently and warmly handled by Lakshitha of Front Office, who continuously made sure that our stay was enjoyable. During our meals, the assistance extended by Anushka at the restaurant was unforgettable. Her smile seems to be permanent and I never saw her without her friendly smile throughout the two days I was there. The food must be the best in the entire southern coast of Sri Lanka. It is prepared under the careful guidance and supervision of an award-winning chef. Beautiful Holiday! Beautiful Hotel! Look forward to visiting again and again.

Room Tip: Our deluxe room had an excellent view of the sea. It looked as if all rooms have excellent sea views...

We stayed here for 3 days then visited Yala and came back for another 4 days the food is outstanding especially the desserts. The pools are both stunning and the wild life around it are amazing we saw several Squirrel type cute and friendly and several large reptiles. The staff are very friendly always happy and willing to help. The rooms very tasteful we had room 257 and 304 I like 304 best it is a little smaller than the others but the views of the sea and pool more than compensate. They also made a Birthday Cake for me which was much appreciated.

We booked this hotel through an agency based on their recommendation. Stayed two nights.
We loved the place. The hotel design is unbelivable. Stunning as you arrive at the reception. The blue pool and sea are seen in one veiw. Great. The rooms were large and very comfortable with wifi. Resturant and food very good. There are 4 restaurants. The most striking thing was the service. Unbelivable. People so responsive and freidly. I saw reviews from past years complaining about the service. I guess they made a big change. Bottom line - one of the best hotels we have visited. You have everything, great facilities, great pools great beach and great service.

We were met with cool drinks and cold flannels after a long trip from the North of the island.
The staff were wonderful although there was some confusion with us being all inclusive (some of the staff did not quite get the meaning of this).
We were upgraded on arrival to a beautiful room overlooking the pool and the sea.
The rooms were clean and tended twice a day by very friendly staff who took great pleasure in arranging our towels into numerous animal shapes.
The food in the restaurants was always beautifully presented and there was plenty of choice for everyone We were apprehensive as although we eat curry my husband is not a huge lover of it so we were delighted with the choices we had. .
The staff were again exceptionally good and eager to please,
We had an early pick up and the staff were kind enough to make us a packed breakfast to take with us.

Room Tip: Rooms furthest from the reception are the quietest.
