The setting is a dream, in an area that is known for great beach hotels this is located by the Madhu Lake surrounded by lush greenery all around (you will not miss the beach when you are here as there's a lot more to appreciate). Highly recommend for people who like to get away for some quiet time. Only downside is while quality was great, food is "ridiculously" priced even in boutique hotel terms I don't know what the owners were thinking. You could eat in a decent New York city restaurant for the same price. It cost nearly $60 for 2 people for 1 meal. Would have given 5 stars if not for the limited choices / price on food. I would go again still!

Room Tip: Get one on the top floor with the private Jaquzzi..

My husband and I had a lovely weekend tucked away at Roman Lake. Not only is the place so lush and hidden away from society the FOOD is AMAZING! The service is non-obtrusive and always prompt. There are little details in the room and bathroom that tell you they added features for comfort and not just for aesthetic appeal. The beds are heavenly, clean and rooms are spacious. If you are looking for some R&R and have your meals as and when you want it. This is the place to go.

Visited Roman Lake with a group of friends in Jan 2016. Beautiful property designed for ultimate relaxation. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. Beautiful pool with a great view of the Balapitiya lake and mangroves. The food is tasty and the chef and his team were willing to change up the menus as per our request. Front office and reservations staff is extremely friendly and obliging.

With the Roman Lake Hotel we found our personal paradise. After an exhausting trip through Sri Lanka we really enjoyed the calm and relaxing atmosphere of this hotel. Everything was very clean and well tended, the food was amazing (although quite expensive for Sri Lanka) and the staff was friendly and smiling all day.
The hotel tries to fulfill all the guests' wishes - like fishing in the lake and preparing the fish for dinner or providing portable WIFI (since the connection of the hotel's wifi is not ideal).
With just 8 rooms this hotel always remains very calm and quiet and the staff can provide personalized service.
The beach of Balapitiya is at a 15 min walk from the hotel.
The hotel is a little bit away from the rest of the world, but if you are seeking for relaxation, it is just perfect.
