What an amazing resort! Beautiful sunrise and the most amazing part is that one place where both sunrise and sunset can be seen.
The rooms were absolutely amazing. Music was great.
Food was great. We were there for 2 nights and 3 days. The menu was different on each day and the spread was just great! Good blend of Sri Lankan food.

Kudos to the manager and staff. Excellent service. All of them deserve praises and raises!!!

Room Tip: We were a party of 22 and every room was different and comfortable.

The hotel is located on a promontory jutting out in to the bay of Dickwella. We stayed in a family suite, which had two double beds, one on the ground floor and the other in the attic. The kids really loved the attic. The staff provided an excellent service and the food was very tasty. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would certainly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay for Saturday dinner, which is the BBQ night. Also, you would need to get used to the salt water swimming pool.

We initially booked here for 2 nights after travelling around the country. However, after our first night, we decided to stay for an extra 2 nights. The rooms were spacious and we enjoyed the beach (lifeguarded) and pool. We would take a relaxing walk along the pretty deserted beach to Dikwella each evening to visit the supermarket and stock up on Lion beer! We enjoyed the food and the staff were attentive and friendly. It was such a lovely location and perfect just to do nothing and relax after a hectic couple of weeks. Free Wifi in central areas is great, but would be better if it extended to all rooms as well.

Room Tip: Request a room near the pool if you want the wifi to extend to your room.

We stayed in Dikwella Resort for 3 nights and had a fantastic time there. We were welcomed by very friendly, well spoken staff with drinks on arrival. The view from the restaurant of the ocean was breath takingly beautiful. There was a good variety of food served at the breakfast and dinner buffets. After dinner we enjoyed the music played by the hip Dj who joined us on the dance floor to teach us a few moves-he leads the aqua aerobics class during the day. We spent our mornings on the resort beach and evening in the pool. The staff arranged our safari to Yala National Park and were very efficient with all our queries. We also used the spa facilities-the masseuse was a lil creepy for my liking! Overall we had a wonderful time at Dikwella and would return in the future. Thank you to the wonderful staff and guests we met out there.

It's one of the classic scenic hotels in Srilnaka. Very friendly staff and the mouth watering dishes are additional plus points.Rooms are pretty comfortable and spacious.
The view from the restaurant is awesome.only little problem was they need proper maintenance in certain areas.
